This area affects all customization possibilities in the publish process before a VidiFlow aorkflow is triggered (see also Publishing a Timeline Sequence [ VE 20.2 UG]). You can reach the this ConfigPortal use case page by selecting the VidiEditor in the main navigation bar and the option as indicated below.
The following configuration options are available under this page.
The target storage defines one storage in the system as the desired location for files newly created during publish. It is handed over as input parameter to the VidiFlow workflow and can be used in there freely. It might be overwritten or transformed in the workflow using rules or dependencies in the workflow and modelling a business process. There is no guarantee that this storage is used as target location. Anyway it gives a good default, because a minimum of one target storage is needed to execute a publish at all.
A storage to select must be defined under Storage global configuration page. Alternatively, users can choose to be redirected to the Storage page and configure a new one.
Users can specify which workflows are triggered when publishing a sequence in VidiEditor. It is possible to select multiple workflows from all VidiFlow workflows and their order. The option of available workflows is determined by those created via the VidiFlow Workflow Designer. Also the ordering of the workflows defines the ordering for user selection and the default parameter used. In result a VidiEditor can see a workflow dropdown in VidiEditor publish dialogue and select one to be triggered for publish. The first one configured acts as default value.
User-Selectable Metadata: Publish
This option gives users the possibility to configure which metadata appears in the search grid when publishing projects. Users will see each of these fields in VidiEditor's publish dialog.
The metadata fields available must first be created under the Metadata global configuration page.
It is important to note that the specification of metadata in the Publish dialog window in this page is only expressed in VidiEditor's Publish dialog window and does not affect other Publish dialog windows (such as the one in EditMate).
Shape for Publish
Users can also configure which formats (shapes) are made available for selection when publishing a sequence. It is important to note that these are preconfigured and allow only for those available in the dropdown to be selected.
