ShareFile is a cloud-based file sharing service. The service provides a custom-branded, password-protected space where users can easily and securely exchange their data and documents.
ShareFile enables users to send large files by email, securely handle file transfers to third parties, and access a collaboration space from desktops or mobile devices. ShareFile provides users with a variety of ways to work, including a Web-based interface, desktop tools, and integration with Microsoft Outlook.
When you configure ShareFile in App Controller, you configure settings to connect to the ShareFile account and administrator service account for user account management. Then, you can connect to ShareFile from the App Controller management console to configure administrator settings.
App Controller supports ShareFile StorageZones, which extend the ShareFile Software as a Service (SaaS) cloud storage by providing your ShareFile account with private data storage. ShareFile StorageZones also provides users with secure access to SharePoint sites and network file shares through StorageZone Connectors. For more information about ShareFile StorageZones, see the ShareFile documentation in eDocs.
Users connect to their documents and files by using the ShareFile application. To allow user access, you must configure the ShareFile application in App Controller.
If you have not created one or more roles in App Controller, when you configure ShareFile, you can select Not Assigned. After you create roles, you can add the role to the ShareFile settings.
You must enter the full domain name for Sharefile, such as mysharefile.sharefile.com.
The service account is the ShareFile administrator account.
After you configure ShareFile settings in App Controller, you can then configure settings on the ShareFile server by connecting to the ShareFile administrative account. These settings include:
Super groups contain individuals who have administrative access and can change ShareFile settings. These individuals are referred to as super users.
For more information about configuring these settings, see the ShareFile documentation.
The Advanced Configuration link only appears after you configure ShareFile in the App Controller management console.
