DryvIQ is built on the concept of connections. Authenticated connections are accounts that have been verified with the cloud-based or network-based platform when created. The connection can be made using a specific user account (typically an email address) and its corresponding password, or, where supported, the connection can be made using OAuth 2.0 authorization (where a token is generated based on the granting authorization to DryvIQ through a user login). This authorization allows DryvIQ access to the user's drive information (files and folder) on the platform.

Connections “connect” to a platform as a specific user account. The user account requires the proper permissions to the platform to read/write/update/delete the content, according to what actions the DryvIQ job is to perform. The connector user account should also be set up so the password does not expire; otherwise, the connection will no longer be able to access the platform until the connection has been refreshed with the new password.

A connection is made to the source platform, and another connection is made to the destination platform. Next, a job is created to tie the two platforms together. When DryvIQ connects to a content platform, it does so by using the publicly available Application Programming Interface (API) for the specific platform. This ensures that DryvIQ is “playing by the rules” for each platform.

Creating a connection in the DryvIQ Platform user-interface is easy! Simply click Add connection, select your platform, and enter the requested information. DryvIQ will securely validate your credentials and connect to your platform.
