Add file storage

To connect Manja Digital Asset Management with TYPO3 you need to create a new file storage at root level.

Add new file storage

Name your new file storage and select Manja Digital Asset Management as driver, which will open further fields to setup your file storage.

Add file storage driver

Setup your file storage with given credientlials in first tab General for at least host, port, username, password, client id and tree id.

Settings for timeout, stream timeout, use SSL, and use session has default values, which can be modified.

Checkbox for Is default storage is not enabled by default.
Normally folder fileadmin is auto created and the default storage.

Checkbox for Automaticly extract metadata after upload is enabled by default.

Enter Folder for manipulated and temporary images etc. for temporary folder of processed files. The entered value needs to be in the form {storageId}:/{path/tho/folder} where {storageId} must be the ID of a writable storage. If you leave it empty, or set it to a wrong value, a warning is shown and a default value of 0:/typo3temp/assets/_processed_manja will be used. Any file from Manja server which is used in any modified versions (croped, resized, etc.) will be stored automaticly by TYPO3 in this folder.

Add file storage settings

Checkbox for is writable in tab Access capabilities has no effect, cause this file storage driver does not support modification of files at Manja server via TYPO3 backend.

Configure Mapping of metadata

If any document is loaded from the Manja Server to TYPO3, the extension downloads also basic Metadata Fields of the document and writes them into TYPO3 Database. The field Mapping has a defaulot configuration, you might want to change this in Tab Metadata. ConfigureMetaDataMapping
Configure MetaData Mapping

Add file mount and access for editors

For backend editors (if you have) you usually need to add file mounts to get access to such folders inside your file storage.
Therefore you should create a new file mount entry in your TYPO3 root level.

Add new file mount

Enter a label name and select your newly created file storage from the list.

Add file mount driver

Add settings for file mount and select a folder which exists at Manja server, to grant access for editors. The first entry / is for root level and all its subfolders.

Add file mount settings

Add your newly created file mount to backend editors access settings, which can be edited for each editor separately or by its group at root level.

Add file mount to editors

Access files and folder at Manja server

In TYPO3 backend modul Filelist editors have access to all file mounts and its subfolders, which are configurated.

First time you select folders from Manja server, it will take extra time to load images from server and generate thumbnails for preview in TYPO3 backend, if you have choosen to show thumbnails in your profile.

Backend modul file list

Such files and folders can be reached also in Filebrowser, which comes up, if editors want to add or select media files to any content element.

Files and folders from Manja Server are readable only and not editable via TYPO3 - therefore all folders has a locked symbol.

The search in Filelist and Filebrowser searches for file name only per default in TYPO3. To search and sort by further informations you need a thirdparty extension for your TYPO3 installation.
