The FWI Cloud library offers a simple solution to store all of your digital sigange content assets.
FWI Cloud library
Log into https://fwicloud.com/
After you log in, you should see the library link/button.
After you click on the library you will see your library space.
Once you are inside your library you can add assets using the ‘(+) New’ button, or simply drag the files from your computer onto the browser window.
In Content Manager Web, create a new content asset (right-click on your library folder and choose ‘Add New Content’) or revise the ‘properties’ of an existing piece of content (right-click on an existing asset and choose ‘Properties’). Click on the folder with an ellipsis. (Outlined in green.)
2 methods of connecting library items to content assets
Method 1 - Direct
In the next dialogue, click on the ‘Cloud Library’ tab. Navigate to the folder your content resides in. Select it and click ‘OK’. Your content item in the cloud library is now connected and ready for deployment.
Method 2 - Content Manager Link
Go to the item you wish to connect in the FWI Cloud library. On the right edge of the screen you will see an item named, “Content Manager Link”. Click on it to see the next dialogue.
In the following screen, click on ‘Copy to Clipboard’.
Return to the properties of the content asset in Content Manager Web. Click on the folder with ellipsis and click on the URL tab.
Paste the Content Manager Link URL from the pasteboard into the “Path:” field. Make sure the deployment method is appropriate for the type of content you’re deploying. (In this example it is an image.) Click OK. Your content item in the cloud library is now connected and ready for deployment.
Extra Note: Using the URL tab, you may also point to other content items located at publicly available URLS or within IU Network (must be HTTPS!).
Replace library items to update your pull deployments
An easy method for updating content is to simply “replace” the item and your sign will detect a change and automatically download this revised piece of content. Previously you may have been using webserve (plus specific deployment behavior) to host content and you simply replace the item with the same filename to update the content automatically. This method will not work with FWI Cloud. Instead you must use the “Replace” option. Navigate to the content in the FWI Cloud library. Underneath ‘Content Manager Link’ is the ‘Replace’ option. Click ‘Replace’ and you will be able to select a file from your workstation. After uploading, the content should update according to the sign’s polling interval (usually 1-5 minutes).
