                  [&Override_Config_Parameters=...]

Example

http://localhost:1234/action=View&Identifier=PGlkIHM9IkRJUjEiIHI9IkM6XEF1dG9ub215XEZpbGVTeXN0ZW1Db25uZWN0b3JDRlNcZGlyMVxmaWxlOC50eHQiLz4%3D

Response

The response is the binary content of the file, unless you have specified NoACI=false.

With NoACI=false, the following XML response is returned:

<autnresponse>
    <action>VIEW</action>
    <response>SUCCESS</response>
    <responsedata>
        <mime-type>application/octet-stream</mime-type>
        <filename>file.txt</filename>
        <content>Base64+encoded+file+content</content>
    </responsedata>
</autnresponse>

If NoACI=false and the connector supports the VIEW_WITH_METADATA feature, it also returns document metadata, for example:

<autnresponse>
  <action>VIEW</action>
  <response>SUCCESS</response>
  <responsedata>
    <reference>C:\file.txt</reference>
    <metadata>
      <CREATED>1499769017</CREATED>
      <FILESIZE>12</FILESIZE>
      <LASTACCESSED>1499769017</LASTACCESSED>
      <LASTCHANGED>1417178089</LASTCHANGED>
      <LASTMODIFIED>1357228211</LASTMODIFIED>
    </metadata>
    <mime-type>application/octet-stream</mime-type>
    <filename>file.txt</filename>
    <content>Base64+encoded+file+content</content>
</responsedata>

The response includes the following elements:
