Configuring Appliance Clients

Storage Made Easy produces a number of client-side applications allowing you to access your files via different platforms, like Mobile, Web and Desktop.

By default our client applications come pre-configured to work with StorageMadeEasy.com, however if you are using our Enterprise Appliance either on-premise or through our IaaS service, the endpoint in these client applications will need to be changed so that it functions against your appliance.

There are two options to configure the endpoints:

  1. Custom branded for the customer with pre-configured endpoints. Please contact us for more details on this option.

  2. The normal Storage Made Easy clients that are provided with the Appliance and that can be downloaded from the relevant mobile App Stores can be used by changing the API endpoint. Please see further details below on how to achieve this.

This article steps through the second option, instructing you how to change the default endpoint on the client applications.

Download the App from the Google Play Store and from the front screen click the Menu (three dots) -> Server option and change the endpoint to be your appliance hostname.

iOS

Download the App from the Apple App Store and from the front login screen click the Go offline option and from the subsequent menu click Settings. Change the endpoint to be yourdomain.com/api.

Now navigate back to the login screen.
