When a storyboard setup process is done (see project timeline documentation), videos can be generated by uploading a data file containing the required customer data.
A file is uploaded via a secured file transfer protocol (i.e. SFTP) into a dedicated account.
Upon loading, the system identifies the incoming data file and triggers the video generation process.
Upon batch generation process complete, the system generates a response PURL file containing the URLs (links) to the personal videos.
SFTP technical aspects:
- The customer uses a dedicated SFTP account provided by Idomoo support team.
- This account is used for all data transfer between Idomoo and the customer.
- The file transfer account contains two main directories:
- “Upload” – the directory where the client should upload the data file into
- “Download” – the directory where the PURL files are placed when the batch is ready.
Data file technical aspects:File must be encoded as UTF-8 or Windows-1252 and can only be one of the following types:
