External File Storage

Jive can integrate with a number of external storage solutions on a licensing basis. You can integrate it with many more storage providers with minimal development.

By default, Jive uses an external binary storage repository or its own database to store uploaded files. But Jive has the capability to connect to different storage providers, so you can store and organize large files in your storage provider and then socialize them in a Jive group or space. Jive currently provides the following configurations as add-ons:

These connectors provide two-way synchronization between files uploaded to a web part or folder in the storage provider, and a place in Jive where these files are socialized. For more about integration with SharePoint, see the Jive for SharePoint documentation. For more about Box, see External File Storage in Box.

If you want to connect a different storage provider to Jive, you can write an integration and use two-legged oAuth to connect your storage provider with Jive. For more information, see the main Add-ons documentation and visit the Jive Developers site.
