Configuring Document Conversion node connection

You use the Document Conversion Settings page to configure the node that hosts the core Jive application, so the main application knows how to communicate with any conversion machines you've set up. Before you use the settings on this page, you should already have set up a document conversion node. For an overview of Document Conversion setup, see Setting up Document Conversion.
Fastpath: > Admin Console: System > Settings > Document Conversion

The Document Conversion Settings page is pre-populated with the default values for most installations. Use the following steps to ensure your setup is correct.

To enable document conversion:

  1. Under Document Conversion, select Enabled to enable this feature.
  2. Click Add a Node to start configuring a conversion machine.
  3. Enter the IP address or hostname for the conversion machine.
  4. Switch the way you access the conversion service URL from http to https by setting this in the Conversion Service Settings field.
  5. If you want to exclude some file types from conversion, enter a comma-separated list in Disabled Extensions. For example, if you don't want to convert Excel files, type xls, xlsx.
