Endpoints Overview

Endpoints are individual file storage locations, backed by Signiant SDCX Server software or Amazon S3 Storage, that send or receive files using Jet. The Endpoints page displays a list of your registered endpoints, their type, current status, creation date, location, and software version.

Endpoints can be assigned to Signiant SDCX Servers or Amazon AWS Storage regions.

The Endpoints page displays endpoints registered to your account

Adding Endpoints

SDCX Servers

Before you can add an on-premises endpoint, you must deploy a Signiant SDCX Server.

Note: If you previously downloaded the SDCX Server software but have not installed it, you must still use a new registration key from the Download SDCX Server Software dialog to install the software on each source or destination server.

Once a server is successfully registered, it can be added as an endpoint.

To add an SDCX Server endpoint:

  1. On the Endpoints page, click the Add button.

  2. Select On-Premises.

    Add Button Highlighting On-premises

  3. On the Add On-Premises Endpoint page, enter an Endpoint Name.

  4. Select an SDCX Server from the drop-down menu.

  5. Configure any advanced settings, such as relays and endpoints restricted to outbound connections.

  6. Click Add.

Once an endpoint is added, it can be used to build a route with an on-premises SDCX Server or an AWS endpoint.

Note: The same server can be used for more than one endpoint.

AWS Storage

Creating an AWS endpoint allows you to connect cloud storage as a destination endpoint for files transferred from an on-premises SDCX Server.

To add an AWS storage endpoint:

  1. On the Endpoints page, click the Add button.

  2. Select AWS.

    Add Button Highlight on Endpoints Page

  3. On the Add AWS Endpoint page, enter an Endpoint Name.

  4. Select a Region from the drop-down menu.

  5. Click Add.

Once an AWS endpoint is created, it can be used to build a route with an on-premises SDCX Server.

Deleting Endpoints

Before you can remove an endpoint, you must delete all jobs associated with the endpoint.

To delete an endpoint:

  1. On the Endpoints page, hover over the endpoint you want to delete.

  2. Click More Options.

    The more options menu displays when you hover over an endpoint

  3. Click Delete and confirm the deletion.

Note: When an endpoint associated with a route is deleted, the route becomes invalid and can no longer be used.
