Using external file storage

Jive can integrate with a number of external storage solutions on a licensing basis to store and organize big files and then synchronize them in a Jive group or space.

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 place. Jive currently provides the following configurations as add-ons:
  • SharePoint
    Note: For more about integration with SharePoint, see the Jive for SharePoint documentation at
  • Google Drive
  • Dropbox

These connectors provide two-way synchronization between files uploaded to the storage provider and a place in Jive where these files are socialized. For more on managing these integrations, see Jive's More Integrations Help, Jive for SharePoint Help, or Jive for Google Help.

Note: Attachments to Jive are not stored in external storage.
