Introduction

Users can set up connection between Memsource Cloud and FTP, SFTP, WordPress, Drupal, Zendesk, Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, Box, Git and GitHub* (online repositories) in order to be able to manually import content from these online repositories when creating new jobs in projects, or to automatically import new content from these repositories.

* Due to API limitations enforced by GitHub, GitHub connector cannot be used for Automated project creation.

Creating New Jobs from Online Repositories

Adding Job from Online Repository
  1. Go to the New Job page

  3. Choose the online repository you want to use
  4. Select the file/files in the same way as when selecting from your local disk

Exporting Completed Jobs to Online Repositories

Adding Job from Online Repository

For jobs imported from an online repository, there will be a new command available under Download - Export to Online Repository

  1. Select the files you want to export
  2. Click on Export to Online Repository
  3. The completed files will be sent back to the online repository from which they were imported, renamed according to the syntax you select under File Renaming.

Please note that FTP does not provide auto-rename. If the File Renaming is turned off, the exported document will overwrite the source file.

Troubleshooting

A connector can sometimes become invalid (marked by a red exclamation mark icon) due to various reasons:

  • The authorization token expires after a long inactivity
  • Users revoke the access
  • Users change their credentials for a remote service (Dropbox, Google, ...)

If this is the case, the connector edit dialog will show a Re-authenticate button with which users will be able to re-establish their connection to the online repository in question.

Special note for Google Drive:

Remove Memsource Connector

If the re-authentication step describe above does not work, please log in to your Google Drive, and click on My Account - Connected apps & sites (under Sign-in & security) - MANAGE APPS, and REMOVE your Memsource Connector app from the list. The next attempt to re-authenticate your connection will be successful.
