Controlling how Elvis assets are used in Enterprise 9

Controlling how Elvis assets are used in Enterprise 9

Elvis 6 can be tightly integrated with Enterprise Server 9 to make the assets that are stored in Elvis available in the workflow of Enterprise.

An asset that is stored in Elvis can be used in Enterprise in one of the following ways:

  • As a shadow object that is created in Enterprise and that is linked to the asset in Elvis (default setting). Only when the Elvis file needs to be worked on is the original file — together with the file preview, thumbnail, metadata and versions — retrieved from Elvis and stored on the local system of the user.
  • As a copy that is created in Enterprise and that is not linked to the original in Elvis.

Configuration

Use one of the following configuration steps.

Note: It is assumed here that Elvis and Enterprise are either already fully integrated or that you are in the process of doing so. For more information, see Integrating Elvis 6 and Enterprise Server 9 - how it works.

Creating a shadow object in Enterprise that is linked to the asset in Elvis

Step 1. Open the configuration file of the Elvis plug-in in Enterprise in a text editor:

<Enterprise Server folder>/config/plugins/Elvis/config.php

Step 2. Locate the 'ELVIS_CREATE_COPY' option and set it to 'false'

define('ELVIS_CREATE_COPY', 'false');

Step 3. Save the file. The changes will be automatically implemented.

Creating a copy in Enterprise that is not linked to the asset in Elvis

Step 1. Open the configuration file of the Elvis plug-in in Enterprise in a text editor:

<Enterprise Server folder>/config/plugins/Elvis/config.php

Step 2. Locate the 'ELVIS_CREATE_COPY' option and set it to 'true':

define('ELVIS_CREATE_COPY', 'true');

Step 3. Save the file. The changes will be automatically implemented.
