Overwriting a DMS Document Deletes Custom Summary Values

  • Updated

When overwriting a DMS document, any custom text in the 'summary' field is overwritten.

As of Cumulative Site Update #42 for Ektron Version 8.6.1, an additional key has been added to the web.config to customize this behavior:

<add key="ek_enableDmsAutoSummary" value=" " /> 

Setting this value to 'False' disables Auto-Summary, preserving whatever text is present at time-of-upload.
