Public files for browsers
I developed a process that creates excel files that needs to be available for downloading from a web browser.
I can put those files on any folder in the server but the missing part is what is the suggested URL that can be referred from a web browser to the directory?
Today we are using a directory in the custom/external_jsp area and it works fine by using URL: https://...aveksa/custom/external_jsp/...
The issue we face with the current solution is that on each deploy the directory permissions are overwritten.

If you need to expose files on the server I'd set up an separate web-server for serving those files. This would separate your own implementation from that of IGL and make it more robust against patches and upgrades and, as your problem is, changes in permissions within IGL deployment. It would also allow you to add authentication for accessing the files.
Using this approach you can also apply ACL on the exposed directory and files to limit access to your other system. If you are looking to put the files on a remote linux server, there are ways to use the AFX to modify csv on other servers over ssh. It's a bit bulky but doable.
Yet another option would be to mount a remote share and drop your files there.
You asked for a way to download files, from a local directory, via web browser that does not experience interference from IG&L. A separate web server fills all of your requirements. Had you specified that it had to be done via the IG&L UI it would have been a different question altogether.
I provided you with three options to solve a wide array of problems stemming from file delivery. Your reply has not provided any more information than your first question did, and as such I cannot provide more details on a solution beyond what I already have.
