The RE_ATTACHMENTS URL and RE_ABSTRACT are delivered with PeopleSoft Real Estate Management, but you must update the data in the URL field so that the path to the appropriate FTP server is specified. To designate the path to the FTP server, use the URL Maintenance page.

The syntax for this URL is ftp://<username>:<password>@<machinename>.


Name of the user account under which you want all users to connect to the FTP server for adding, updating, viewing, and deleting documents.


Password associated with the user account under which you want all users to connect to the FTP server.



The name by which the FTP server is identified on your network. You may want to create a directory on the server where your documents are stored. If you create an optional directory, then include this directory name when citing your path. You can also store the attachments in the root directory of the FTP server.

Warning! The user name and password specified here are critical. The system uses these to connect all users to the FTP attachment server.
