Hot folder

  • Content-Oriented


A hot folder (or "watched folder") is a directory in the file system that is continuously monitored by the DAM system. Files copied into this directory are automatically imported into the DAM, and usually removed afterwards. Hot folders are used both for manual imports (users copy files into the hot folder on the DAM server via a network drive) and for integration with third parties that frequently send files (often via FTP to the hot folder). Hot folders have the advantage over uploading that large batches of files can be imported faster, but the disadvantage that there's no immediate feedback whether the import was successful.
