Add Content Sources

A content source is a storage location such as a folder, drive or entire device that a user is allowed to access. FileFlex allows access per your already established Active Directory and device permissions. For example, if you were to add a NAS to a users content, that user must already be set up as a user of the NAS with credentials in place.

As the FileFlex administrator, you set up allowed content sources for the organization by installing the FileFlex Connector to your storage devices from this console using your administrative credentials for each device. The first time each user accesses that content source, they will have to log in using their own personal credentials for the device. Administrative credentials are used to set up storage repositories and the user’s credentials are then used to access to the storage.
