Document Management Module (DMS)

Build status Code quality Code coverage Helpful Robot


The module adds a new DMSDocument model which allows management of large amounts of files, and their relations to pages. In contrast to the File model built into SilverStripe core, it aims to wrap storage and access concerns in a generic API. This allows more fine-grained control over how the documents are managed and exposed through the website.

Additionally, documents are stored and managed as part of a page instead of away in a separate assets store.


  • Relation of documents to pages
  • Relation of documents to other documents
  • Management and upload of documents within a page context in the CMS
  • Metadata management through the powerful GridField and UploadField core APIs
  • Download via SilverStripe controller (rather than filesystem URLs)
  • Access control based on PHP logic, and page relations
  • Replacement of existing files
  • Tagging via the taxonomy module if installed


For information on configuring and using this module, please see the documentation section.
