This vault application creates a context menu item for creating a view URL for a selected view or a virtual folder.

The solution can be used to provide certain functionality not available with the M-Files offering without customization. This solution does not have any official support. It is always used at your own risk and should be tested thoroughly for the use case before implementing in a production environment.

Testing and deploying
The simplest method to test an application is to copy the files into a local development folder. This allows you to alter the files and simply log out and into the vault to see the changes.
To deploy the application, you must zip the application files and deploy them using the M-Files Admin tool. This process is detailed on the M-Files Developer Portal.
When a client connects a vault, new User Interface Extensibility Framework applications will be downloaded and the user will be prompted to install them. This can be avoided by pre-approving it using registry keys.
