Manja Digital provides a facility to automatically export original files or generated files to external software systems.
For this, so called export channels will be defined. Individual files or the whole stock can be exported through an export channel.
The actual export work is taking place in the background. The queue containing export jobs can be inspected and canceled/emptied.
Files can be made available via export channels. How to create and configure export channels is described in this chapter of our documentation.
General information on how to define files for export is explained in the chapter “Export files” in the documentation.
Tip: On our page Features & Add-ons we have compiled an informative overview of all our features.
Manage export channels and queues and view export logs
An export channel consists of a name, a target URL as well as an option for exporting with or without a hierarchical directory structure.
The following schemes resp. protocols are supported:
file – local filesystem of the server
ftp – File Transfer Protocol
ftps – FTP with SSL/TLS
sftp – SSH File Transfer Protocol
http – HTTP PUT
https – HTTP with SSL
The URL may contain username and password, e.g.: ftp://user:firstname.lastname@example.org/target_path/
flat: The export takes place into the directory of the target path. The respective filename will be appended to the target URL. Example: “ftp://user:email@example.com/target_path/clouds.jpg”
hierarchically: The export takes place into a hierarchical directory structure below the target path, based on a category tree. The directories will be created if necessary. Example: “ftp://user:firstname.lastname@example.org/target_path/Topics/Nature/clouds.jpg”.
Export to a hierarchical directory structure is not supported for HTTP and HTTPS.
