External Content Provider actions

Create New External Content Provider

Invocation of Create new External Content Provider at the Configuration Workbench toolbar displays a submenu, allowing you to select the type of provider to create (currently, only a single provider – Google Cloud Storage – is supported).

Upon selecting an option, a new provider is added to the grid, and placed in an appropriate alphabetical position.  Its Name is ‘New [External Content Provider Type] Provider’. An incrementing integer can be appended to the default name to ensure uniqueness.

All of a new provider’s properties, other than its Name, are blank, and its State is Added.  The new provider is selected automatically.

Configure Existing External Content Provider

This is carried out in the simple fields in the Selected Content Provider Details section, by selecting an existing provider.  If multiple providers are selected, a message is displayed:

If you make changes to a provider that has been saved previously, its State is set to Edited.

Delete Selected External Content Providers

This is carried out in the toolbar.  A deleted provider's State is set to Deleted.  Its row text color is set to red.  You may no longer select a deleted row.  You can delete multiple providers concurrently.

Save Changes to External Content Providers

Save is carried out using the Save changes to External Content Providers toolbar button.  Any changes you have made are validated, and any validation errors are advised in a dialog.  You may not proceed with the Save until you have resolved them.  Following a successful save, providers are displayed in alphabetical order.  All providers' states are updated to Unchanged.  Any deleted providers are removed from display.


This option reloads the contents of the interface from the operational database. If changes have been made, a ‘Save Changes?’ dialog is shown.
