User Case: How Can I Do Egnyte SharePoint Integration?
"I use Egnyte and SharePoint services at the same time, but now I need to connect the two accounts so that I can transfer data. Is there any way to achieve this?"
The Egnyte platform provides IT administrators with the ability to automatically categorize and manage metadata through document type recognition, which enables them to transform unstructured data into structured data. This allows for secure, automated management of content at various stages of its lifecycle.
SharePoint is Microsoft's web-based collaboration platform that lets you attach cloud storage to websites and organize files into pages. It is a must-have tool for large, multi-departmental teams and complex projects, and is built on the services provided by Microsoft OneDrive for Business.
Although both provide file storage and sharing, Microsoft SharePoint and Egnyte are different services with different purposes, so many users prefer to use them together. But as the above user said, integrating the two is a tricky problem.
How to Achieve Egnyte SharePoint Integration in 3 Ways
If you want to connect Egnyte and SharePoint, here are 3 different methods for you to try. One is to download and upload data between SharePoint and Egnyte accounts yourself, the second is to use the Egnyte for SharePoint Online tool, and the third is to use a great third-party cloud file manager called MultCloud to link Egnyte and SharePoint in one click.
1. Manual Download and Upload
Since no cloud storage service provides users with the tools to integrate with another cloud to establish a connection between two different clouds, the most traditional method is to download files from one cloud and then re-upload the files to the other cloud by themselves.
Step 1. Log in to access your Egnyte account.
Step 2. Check the files or folders that you want to use in SharePoint.
Step 3. Then select the "Download" button in the pop-up window on the right, and the file will be downloaded to your computer.
Note: Almost all downloaded files are stored in the browser folder by default. In addition, if there are many downloaded files, the files will exist in a compressed form, which needs to be decompressed before uploading to SharePoint.
Step 4. Log in to your SharePoint account and go to the "Documents" interface in your SharePoint site.
Step 5. Click the "Upload" button and upload files or upload folders to SharePoint. Alternatively, you can drag and drop files from your computer to SharePoint.
This approach works well when you have only a few files to integrate with SharePoint and Egnyte. You may encounter some difficulties when synchronizing large amounts of data between Egnyte and SharePoint. Because this process relies heavily on your local storage space and network speed.
2. Egnyte for SharePoint Online App
The Egnyte for SharePoint app allows you to embed an Egnyte file server into a SharePoint site to take advantage of all the functionality that Egnyte has to offer. The directly embedded Egnyte interface ensures that your SharePoint documents always reflect the latest information without the need to constantly change files and re-upload them to SharePoint.
Step 1. Download the Egnyte for SharePoint application.
Step 2. Log in to your Microsoft Office Online account.
Step 3. Use the application catalog to make the custom business application available to your SharePoint Online environment. Then add and deploy an Egnyte for SharePoint application (as a custom application).
Step 4. Click the gear icon in the upper right corner and select "Add a page". Click "Edit" and toggle the "INSERT" tab. Then click "Web Part". Finally, select Egnyte under "Parts".
Step 5. Click the "Add" button. Then follow the prompts to connect your Egnyte account and enter your Egnyte credentials.
This approach is relatively smart but requires effort to deploy the correct environment, otherwise, the connection between Egnyte and SharePoint will not be successful. In addition, this method cannot be used on the web and is only suitable for use on computer devices.
