Creative Force allows you to connect your account to a range of different Data Sources, Post Production Vendors, Asset Delivery Options and more! This article goes over how to take advantage of our various connectors.
The Connectors Page is found in your Studio Settings, under Account Settings.
From there you will see an overview of all of your connectors. As a default, all connectors will be enabled.
Hovering over one of the connectors will show you the Edit button which allows you to enable or disable a connector.
From within the edit panel, you can see how to link a connector to its appropriate function.
We have four main types of Connectors: Data Source, Post Production, Asset Delivery, and Other, which includes our Workfront Connector.

Depending on the type of connector, they can have multiple different functions. For instance, Amazon S3 is both a data source and an asset delivery location. You may be sourcing your Job data from an S3 location while also delivering images there once they have been completed.
Types of Connectors
A data source allows you to ingest job data directly from a digital location. This allows you to automate your job data imports by having another system deposit data regarding your jobs.
We have the following Data Source Methods:
- CSV Feed
- JSON Feed
- XML Feed
- FTP Folder
- SFTP Folder
- Google Cloud Storage
You can learn more about creating a Data Source by using an FTP method from the below article.
