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.

Operating Systems

Microsoft Windows

The WebDAV client included in the Microsoft Windows operating system unfortunately only works very unreliably, so you must first install WebDAV-capable software and configure it accordingly. The University Computer Centre has therefore procured licences of the WebDAV-enabled software WebDrive. You can find these

  • in WebFiler under JADE-HS - Data (X) / HRZ-Support / WebDrive
  • on the data drives under Data X:\HRZ-Support\WebDrive

Change here to the folder matching your operating system. After the successful installation, please configure it as follows:


  • In the above mentioned folder you will find the file Lizenz.txt, copy the serial number here (to the clipboard).
  • In the WebDrive client select Settings → Activate licence
  • Paste the serial number (from the clipboard) into the field Registration Code
  • Select the button “Activate licence”.

Configure WebDrive:

  • In the WebDrive client, select “Add Connection” (the + sign at the top).
  • Select the “WebDAV” card
  • Connection name: JADE-HS - Collaboration Cloud (or JADE-HS - CC for short).
  • Server address:
  • Username: default login (form: ma1150)
  • Password: <your password>
  • Drive letter: W:\
  • WebDAV settings → Certificate settings
    • Automatically accept the server certificate: enabled
  • Click on “Save as”.

To use, double-click on the newly configured connection.
