Jive for SharePoint stores attachments and uploaded files in SharePoint. Metadata, such
as likes, replies, and comments, is stored in Jive, as well as Jive documents and previews.
When you create a place, you can choose how you want it to use SharePoint: Storage Only or Storage Plus
For security and data integrity, when you upload documents directly into Jive, they are
stored in hidden libraries on the SharePoint site. The binaries aren't directly available to a
regular SharePoint user. This means, if you have SharePoint Site permission but not Jive
permissions, you will not be able to access any Jive documents. It also means Jive for
SharePoint can't capture any changes made from SharePoint to these docs so they are only
available via the Recent Activity or Jive Content web parts. You can always access these
documents via the web parts, and download them directly from there.
Here's what's stored in SharePoint when you have a linked space or group:
- All uploaded files in that place.
- All images in that place.
- All attachments in that place.
Here's what's stored in Jive's shared storage repository:
- All native documents authored in Jive.
- All comments on either Jive or SharePoint documents.
- All Jive discussions, even if they have attached documents.
- Previews (in PDP format) of documents uploaded to SharePoint. The document is in
SharePoint: the preview is stored by Jive.
Note: When searching for
SharePoint documents in Jive, remember that where you look depends on when the document was
uploaded. Documents uploaded to SharePoint before connecting the Jive group and
SharePoint site can be found when you click Remote Docs in the
Jive group, which is a separate location from all other Jive content. Documents uploaded
directly to SharePoint after connecting the Jive group and the SharePoint site can be
found by using the Spotlight search or browsing
