Installing demo files for Elvis 6

When using Elvis for demonstration purposes, a pack of 60 demo files can be installed. This pack consists mainly of images but also includes documents, a presentation, spreadsheets, InDesign files and videos.

This article explains how to install these demo files.

Note: It is assumed here that Elvis 6 Server and the Pro client are fully installed and working correctly.

Perform the following steps using a tool such as Postman or curl.

Step 1. Using the tool, log in to Elvis Server by performing a POST request.

<Elvis Server URL>/services/login?username=<user name>&password=<password>



Note the csrf token that is returned in the response.
