Microsoft Azure is a cloud-based platform that provides serverless containers to help build, manage, and deploy applications.

Microsoft Azure connector allows the downloading of source files and uploading of target files directly to/from the Azure Storage File Shares.

Use Cases

There are a number of use cases for the connector:

  • Project Managers can add files directly to projects from an online repository.

  • Set up the Automation Widget allowing Submitters to add files to requests directly from the online repository.

  • Use Automated Project Creation (APC) to have Memsource automatically create new projects when a change in file size is detected in monitored files or a folder.

    • Selected files are imported the very first time APC runs. No files are imported when a folder is monitored.

    • This connector supports absolute path setting.

  • Set up Continuous Jobs to have Memsource monitor selected files for changes.

  • The Connector API can be used to automate steps otherwise performed manually through the UI. Webhooks can be used to have Memsource notify 3rd party systems about certain events (for example, a job status change).
