File Uploads

Single File Uploads

To upload an asset to Ooyala Flex, follow these steps:

  1. If you are in the Ooyala Flex console, click Upload on the toolbar.

    • If you are in MAM, click Upload on the top toolbar.
  2. The Web Uploader opens in a separate window.

  3. Click the text to browse for your file, or click Web Upload.

  4. Browse to the file you wish to upload, and select it.

  5. Click Open.

  6. From the Inbox drop down, select an inbox.

  7. From the Workspace drop down, select a workspace.

  8. If a metadata schema is associated with the inbox, you must fill in any mandatory metadata fields before uploading the asset.

  9. Click Upload File.

  10. The file uploads. You will see a bar showing the progress of the upload.

Canceling an Upload

To cancel an upload while it is in progress, click the Cancel icon, located on the right-hand side of the asset.

Pausing an Upload

To pause an upload, click the Pause icon, on the right-hand side of the asset.

To resume the upload, click the Play icon.

Bulk Uploads

Web Transfer supports bulk uploads. This means you can upload multiple assets to Ooyala Flex simultaneously. In a bulk upload, each file is still processed individually, by individual workflows, but these workflows are grouped together as a single event from a UI perspective.

To perform a bulk upload, follow these steps:

  1. On the toolbar, click the Upload option.

  2. The Web Uploader opens in a separate window.

  3. Click the text to browse for your file, or click Web Upload.

  4. Select the files you wish to upload and click Open.

  5. Click Open.

    • Alternatively, you can drag multiple files into the upload area, instead of manually navigating to them.
    • If you intend to upload using FileCatalyst, you must manually select the file. Dragging the file into the uploader window will not work, as FileCatalyst needs to use its own selector to access the asset.
  6. Set an Inbox and Workspace from the drop down menus and click Select.

  7. Here you can add more files to upload by clicking the + icon, or remove files by clicking the x on the right of the file names.

    • The Group Upload checkbox determines whether the upload is treated as a bulk upload. If this checkbox is selected, the upload is a bulk upload. If it is not selected, the files upload independently of each other.
    • If a metadata schema is associated with your selected inbox, you must fill in any mandatory metadata fields before uploading the asset.
  1. Click Upload Files.

  2. A progress bar is displayed for the bulk upload.
