Using Content Library

SOTI MobiControl's Content Library is a file storage and distribution system that allows you to upload files in the SOTI MobiControl console and then disseminate them to your devices. Files uploaded to the Content Library are stored in the deployment server. When setting up the Content Library, you must specify a storage location for the uploaded files. The storage path can be anywhere that the deployment server has access to such as a shared folder on the network or a folder on the hard drive.

You can upload any file type to the Content Library. File size is limited to 2 GB per file and you can upload as many files as you can fit into your chosen storage location. You can configure settings for file distribution for individual files or create a Content Library Policy that covers all files uploaded using that policy.

The Content Library is only available on the Android Plus and Apple tabs. Furthermore, on iOS, files synchronized to devices using a File Sync Rule will appear in the Content Library, although Content Library Policies will not apply to them.

Content Library Policies

A Content Library policy defines how content from the library is distributed to devices. Each policy covers a device group or groups and synchronizes chosen files or folders to the devices within that device group. You can further narrow the coverage by using Categories to limit synchronization to files tagged with that category. Categories are subject tags that you can add each file, for example, "Training Material" or "Reference". You can create as many categories as necessary.
