Groups with external file storage

If your administrator has connected your community with an external storage provider such as Box, SharePoint, or Google Drive, you can take advantage of file storage and synchronization for groups where this is enabled.

Typically, the default is a binary storage archive on a server that's part of your Jive installation. When you create a group, you may have the option to connect it to a different storage provider than the default configured when your community was set up. Using external file storage means that when a user uploads a document, it's stored with a third-party file storage service instead of directly in Jive. Files can then be automatically synchronized in both directions, which means you can add or update them from either side. If the storage provider has comment functionality, comments are also synchronized with comments in the group.

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