With aid of a WebDAV client (Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning), members of the university can comfortably access the files within the Collaboration Cloud of the university via the file manager.

Use this access option with care. The control by WebDAV Clients of “File-Locking” is in some cases not reliable. As a consequence, if more people have parallel access only the version which was saved at last will remain.

Network System of Computers

If you work with a computer within the network system of computers, you can call up the necessary software in the computing centre software menu. This way, you get comfortable access to the Collaboration Cloud in the file manager.

  • Computing Centre Software Menu/ Tools / Webdrive
  • Username: Standard Login (form: ma1150)
  • Password: <Your password>
  • Select “JADE-HS - Collaboration Cloud” in the server list
  • You can find the content of the Collaboration Cloud on hard drive W:/ within the file manager

Microsoft Windows

The WebDAV client included in Betriebssystem Microsoft Windows works rather unreliably. This is why you first need to install a WebDAV-capable software and configure it the right way. The university computing centre holds licenses of the WebDAV-capable software WebDrive. You can find it in the WebFiler under

  • JADE-HS - Files (X) / HRZ-Support / WebDrive
  • Change the folder according to your operating system
  • Users of Microsoft Windows should also pay attention to choosing the 64-bit Webdrive client (webdrive64…exe)

After successful installation and restart of your computer, please configure it the following way:

  • Server Type: Secure WebDAV
  • URL / Address:
  • Username: Standard Login (form: ma1150)
  • Password: <Your Password>
  • Further Settings:
    • General Settings / HTTP-Settings:
      • Add a slash at the end of a folder listing request: Active
    • General Settings / DAV:
      • Lock Owner-Characteristic: <PC-Name> <Your Name> (e.g. mo2xxxx Max Mustermann)
      • Activate automatic DAV-locking: Active
    • File Settings / File:
      • Activate directory note alteration (down): Active
    • Cache Settings / Settings:
      • More Users: Active
  • Site-Name: JADE-HS - Collaboration Cloud (or short: JADE-HS - CC)
  • Hard Drive: W:\

After successful configuration, you need to license the Webdrive:

  • You can find the file Lizent.txt in the list mentioned above. Copy the serial number
  • Go to the Webdrive client and select
    • App-Settings/ General / License Information
    • Select the button “Activate License”
    • Paste the serial number here
