Elvis 4 plug-ins - introduction

Elvis 4 plug-ins - introduction

The core Elvis functionality is extendable through plugins. By using schedule plugins you can extend the server functionality and by using action plugins you can extend the desktop client.

Server schedule plugins

Schedule plugins (formerly known as scheduled modules) are automated server tasks that require no user interaction. Usage scenarios are:

  • Server side integrations with external systems
  • Automatic asset ingestion
  • Workflow integrations, import files and metadata from external systems
  • Workflow integrations, export files and metadata to external systems
  • Internal workflow, move or delete files based on metadata
  • Data migration from other DAM systems

Desktop client action plugins

Action plugins are used to tailor Elvis desktop client functionality. Custom menus and buttons can be used to open dialogues and tabs containing specific features or integrations. Usage scenarios are:

  • Transcoding images or videos
  • Approval workflows
  • Search external sources
  • Printable contact sheets

Bundled plugins, configuration and customization

There are several open source bundled plugins available. For information on plugin activation and configuration, check the article on plugin management. Developers can modify bundled plugins or develop their own custom schedule or action plugins.
