UploadZen: Feedback Forum > Redirection of URL when launching Upload multiple files

I have installed uploadzen successfully on our Sharepoint server. We have 2 URL's setup currently where 1 of them uses forms authentication and the other uses Windows authentication.

I am trying to get Uploadzen working on the forms one. When I login to the forms URL I can correctly see the "Upload Multiple Files" option however when I click on it it launches the Windows authentication URL rather than the Forms one I launched it from. Is there a config option for this somewhere as I am not sure why it would do this

Thanks in advance

I assume you have already reviewed the information in the following articles?

Windows Integrated Authentication and Forms-based Authentication (FBA)

Deployment Checklist

Question, is this a secure connection, ie. an HTTPS site?

Yes I have reviewed and followed all supporting documentation. No we are not using https. If when I launched the upload zen it stayed within the forms authentication site and did not go to the win authentication all I believe would work OK. Just need to work out why it directs you to a different site to the one you launch it from

The release of UploadZen 3.0 is pending -- next week, we hope. We will attempt to reproduce and fix this issue with that release (might get back to you for more details if we cannot reproduce it).

It's been a long ride but 2.4 is now out and introduces a completely new, fully working uploader mode called the Web Uploader. The previous Windows-based technology is still included and called the Windows Uploader mode. However, this has become almost impossible to deploy successfully to modern client OS and browser environments, as it has been built upon a client technology that Microsoft unfortunately unilaterally obsoleted.

The new mode requires either the Silverlight 4 or the Flash 10 plugin to be installed in the browser. This supports all major client OSes (Win, Mac, Linuxes) and the most varied range of browsers. Also supported are server-side ZIP extraction and automatic checkin-upon-upload.

Not everything we planned has made it into this release 2.4. Future feature additions include:


- chunking (ability to upload files that are larger than your server-side file upload size limits set at the SharePoint or IIS level)
- client-side zipping for Silverlight plugin mode
- configurable client-side image resizing prior to upload


- versatile & flexible metadata migration support (upload files and set their metadata in one go, scriptable or schedulable batch uploads loading mapped metadata from a variety of data sources)

We are looking forward to hearing how UploadZen 2.4 works for you.

The product documentation has not been updated yet. This will be available in a 2.4.0.x service release 1-3 days from now. But the admin GUIs and end user interfaces are highly self-explanatory.
