Cinegy Workspace 21 consists of pure static content and can be therefore deployed easily on any Web server. For this download the archive from the partner portal and extract its content into a folder that can be served by a Web server of your choice. If you are using IIS, the dedicated folder is: C:\inetpub\wwwroot\workspace_root

Note
Please note that subfolder name doesn’t have to be workspace_root, it can be any arbitrary name.

As a next step, Cinegy Workspace has to be configured. Navigate to C:\inetpub\wwwroot\workspace_root\assets\configuration and open config.json file.

The two important sections are mams and domains.

The mams section contains a configuration list for connecting one or several Cinegy Archive databases, while domains is a list of one or several Windows Domains (or local Windows Workgroups) which will be used to authenticate Cinegy Workspace users.

For example, you have Cinegy Archive Service, Cinegy Media Asset Management Service, and Cinegy Image Service installed locally on your computer. You have two Cinegy Archive Databases: "Cinegy_db_main" and "Cinegy_db_slave" located on "SQL_Server" within "MyDomain". The configuration file will be as follows:

{
		"domains": ["MyDomain"],
		"itemsPerPage": 10,
		"mams": [
	{
		"casEndpoint": "http://localhost:8082/ICinegyDataAccessService",
		"dbName": "Cinegy_db_main",
		"dbServer": "SQL_Server",
		"mamEndpoint": "http://localhost:7601/mams/1.0/api/mam/",
		"name": "Cinegy Main Database",
		"thumbnailServer": "http://localhost:8001/image_service/1.0/api/thumbnail/",
		"uploadStores": [
			{
				"name": "Video Upload",
				"type":"Simple",
				"url":"http://localhost/upload/"
			},
			{
			"name": "Store 1",
			"region": "eu-central-1",
			"roleArn": "arn:aws:iam::12345:role/workspace_user_s3_upload_access",
			"type": "AWS",
			"url": "some-bucket-name-here/subfolder-name-here"
			}
		]
	},
		{
		"casEndpoint": "http://localhost:8082/ICinegyDataAccessService",
		"dbName": "Cinegy_db_slave",
		"dbServer": "SQL_Server",
		"mamEndpoint": "http://localhost:7601/mams/1.0/api/mam/",

			"roleArn": "arn:aws:iam::12345:role/workspace_user_s3_upload_access",
			"type": "AWS",
			"url": "some-bucket-name-here/subfolder-name-here"
			}
		]
	}
],
	"remoteConfigHost":"https://cblzme81s2.execute-api.eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/prod/v1/config",
	"useRemoteConfig": false
}
