Set up an Egnyte integration

Follow these steps to set up a one-way integration between a folder in  Egnyte and a project in Smartvid.io

An integration will automate a sync of the folder’s photos and videos to Smartvid.io (the sync checks roughly every 10 minutes).  It will also scan all subfolders in that folder.  You can then use all of Smartvid.io's capabilities to manage, organize, and share your Egnyte content, without having to manually re-upload it.

Or, just follow these steps:

You'll be taken to the Egnyte setup page, shown here:

  • Under Egnyte Connection, click the Connect button to open this pop-up:
  • Enter your Egnyte domain and click Next, then enter your login credentials. You'll be asked to give Smartvid.io permission to access your Egnyte account information -- click the Allow Access button to finalize your login. The pop-up should close, and you should see this back on the setup page:

  • Under Configuration, you'll see your top/primary Egnyte folder. For example: 

    Click a folder to expand a view of its subfolders. Clicking on any folder will integrate all of its content, and content from all subfolders it contains.  All folder and subfolder names will be created as parent and child tags in the  tag dictionary, following their original hierarchy, so you can use those tags to keep track of where in Egnyte a picture came from. 

  • Under  Integration Status, select the Enabled radio button. Your integration should now be set up and working! Click the Sync Now button to import the folder's files. 

  • If you later want to sync the project to a different Egnyte folder, you'll have to disable the integration by switching to the  Disable radio button before you can make any changes. Re-enable the integration once you've selected a different folder.

  • The  Integration Status section shows the last time Egnyte content was successfully synced to the project. If you want to sync new Egnyte content right away, click the Sync Now button.

If you're having trouble connecting to or syncing with Egnyte, please  contact support.
