Application Filtering

In a modern environment, asset approval status, department membership or project assignment are a superior way of establishing relationships between users and content.

Clustering Setup Procedure

Clustering in EnterMedia is the idea of setting up multiple environments that share specific sets of data (i.e. users, groups). The benefit is that changes made in one environment will be reflected in the others, and any load on the servers are shared as well. EnterMedia utilizes ElasticSearch...

VirtualBox Evaluation Setup

A prepackaged Virtual Machine is available for evaluation purposes. The VM is upgraded with each major release to ensure the most up to date bug fixes and feature enhancements. Full installation instructions are available.

Administration

Basic Failover Setup

A basic failover system requires two servers with EnterMedia installed on each. If one server goes down, the other "failover" server will automatically start up. This is an ideal arrangement for any production environment that has a requirement of 99.9+% uptime...

Exporting and Importing Applications (Workspaces)

When setting up a DEV, QA or staging environment it is best to use as many aspects of the production site as possible. The closer the resemblance between the two areas, the more relevant the testing and experimentation will be. EnterMedia allows DAM administrators to export applications or workspaces for backup and testing purposes...

Upgrading

The EnterMedia release cycle produces a new wave of feature enhancements and bug fixes about every 4-6 weeks. When a new version of EnterMedia is available the update can be performed from the Manager page when logged in as an administrator. If the local environment is customized...

How to setup Eclipse on Windows 7/8

Local development, debugging, testing and troubleshooting can be achieved by setting up Eclipse on a non-production machine. Eclipse can be set up in a Windows, Linux or Mac environment. This arrangement will allow access to the EnterMedia codebase and other useful tools...

XCONF Configuration Files

Every EnterMedia site has a top level file named: /_site.xconf that controls the default settings for the site. Additional _site.xconf files may be placed in children directories, such that the lower level _site.xconf files either override or, in some cases, have an additive effect on the settings in higher level _site.xconf files...

XML REST API

The REST API is the original EnterMedia API. The list of available calls is vast and inclusive. It can be used to build custom front ends and other applications on top the DAM...
