The integration with Windows Azure Storage is available from the integrations marketplace in the Team Apps tab.
This integration allows sending documents to Azure storage. This scenario is interesting for example for companies that work with multimedia assets and want to make use of services such as the Azure CDN to serve cached videos or images on web pages.
The documents sent to Azure are a copy of the original kept in Athento.
The path in Azure of the files sent to this service, are stored as document features in Athento.
To activate this integration, Athento will require the following parameters:
- Account Name: This parameter is the name of the Windows Azure storage account, which in many cases is also the first part of the URL, e.g. http://azure_account_name.blob.core.windows.net/.
- Account Key: This is the private key that gives Django access to the Windows Azure account.
- Container Name: This is where the files will be sent. The container must already be created, as the storage system will not attempt to create it.
