Signiant Integration

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.

General system configuration

The following configuration properties must be set:

signiantManagerHost The hostname of the Signiant manager.

signiantManagerUser The manager username.

signiantManagerPassword The manager password.

Storage configuration

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 <group_name>!<organization_number>.

Storage methods

Each Signiant enabled storage needs a file:/ storage method. This will be used to determine the source and destination paths for transfers.
