Vidispine can initiate transfers between storages using Signiant. Some configuration is needed in order for this to work. Once all required configuration is set, Signiant will automatically be used for transfers between configured storages.
The following configuration properties must be set:
The hostname of the Signiant manager.
The manager username.
The manager password.
The following metadata field must be set on the source and destination storage (Key-value metadata).
The name of the agent connected to this storage. This can also be set to an
agent group using the format
Each Signiant enabled storage needs a
file:/ storage method. This will be
used to determine the source and destination paths for transfers.
