Restoring an archived layout in Elvis 6 Server - configuration

Restoring an archived layout in Elvis 6 Server - configuration

When restoring an archived layout to Enterprise from Elvis 6 Server, any images that are placed can be restored in one of the following ways:

  • Images are copied in Elvis and used as a shadow object in Enterprise in the same location as the layout.

    They will maintain their original name and will get the first status within their Workflow assigned.
  • Images are copied from Elvis to Enterprise and the Enterprise image is placed on the layout.
    They will maintain their original name and will get the same properties as the parent layout, with the exception of the Workflow Status which will be the first status within the Workflow.
  • The image is not copied but directly linked via a shadow object in Enterprise.
    They will maintain their original name and will get the same properties as the parent layout, with the exception of the Workflow Status which will be the first status within the Workflow.

This is configured through the IMAGE_RESTORE_LOCATION option in the config.php file of the Elvis Content Source Plug-in. This option is influenced by the ELVIS_CREATE_COPY option in that same file.

Example:

define ( 'IMAGE_RESTORE_LOCATION', 'Elvis_Copy' );

Configuring the IMAGE_RESTORE_LOCATION option

  • File: config.php file of the Elvis Content Source Plug-in
  • Name of option: IMAGE_RESTORE_LOCATION
  • Possible values:
  • Elvis_Copy. (Default setting). The image is copied in Elvis and is linked via a shadow object in Enterprise.
  • Elvis_Original.1 The original image is linked through a shadow object in Enterprise.
  • Enterprise.2 The image is copied to Enterprise and placed on the layout.
  • Default setting: Elvis_Copy
  • Example:

  • Smart Connection for Adobe 2014, version 10.2.4 or Smart Connection for Adobe 2015, version 11.0.2
  • Enterprise Server 10.1.1 or higher
