Handler Mappings Page

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

Use the Handler Mappings feature page to manage a list of handlers that process requests for specific file types.

Sort the list by clicking one of the feature page column headings or select a value from the Group by drop-down list to group similar items.

UI Element List

The following tables describe the UI elements that are available on the feature page and in the Actions pane.

Feature Page Elements

 

Element Name Description

Name

Displays the name of the handler mapping.

Path

Displays the file name or file name extension for which the handler will process a response. The value can be either a specific file name, such as WebResource.axd, or a wildcard (*) with a specific extension, such as *.exe.

State

Displays whether the handler is enabled or disabled based on the access policy set in the Edit Feature Permissions dialog box and the required access setting specified by the handler mapping. If a handler requires a type of access that is not enabled in the access policy at that level, the handler is disabled.

Path Type

Displays one of the following values for the type of path to which the handler is mapped:

  • Unspecified, if the mapping does not apply to a specific path type.

  • File, if the mapping applies to a file.

  • Directory, if the mapping applies to a directory.

  • File or Directory, if the mapping is for either a file or a directory.

Handler

Displays the module, such as IsapiModule, or managed type, such as System.Web.Handlers.TraceHandler, that responds to the request as specified in the mapping.

Entry Type

Displays whether the item is local or inherited. Local items are read from the current configuration file, and inherited items are read from a parent configuration file.

If you want to inherit settings from a parent level, you must revert all of the changes at the child level by using the Revert to Inherited action in the Actions pane.

Move Down

Moves a selected item down in the list. This action is available only when viewing items in the ordered list format.

When items in the list are reordered at a child level, the child will no longer inherit settings from the parent level (including any items that are added to or removed from the list at the parent level) after the list is reordered. If you want to inherit settings from a parent level, you must revert all of the changes at the child level by using the Revert to Inherited action in the Actions pane.
