What’s New in Jet — March 2020

End-to-end file transfer just got easier.

Signiant is excited to introduce improvements to Job configuration, searching files, and Jet APIs.

Over the past few months we’ve been rolling out new functionality that enhances the Jet file transfer experience from start to finish, making it much easier to configure, automate and audit your Jet jobs.

Configure

Reuse the same storage endpoint and path with Storage Profiles

You may have noticed the new Storage tab when you login to Jet — this is a list of all your Storage Profiles. Simply, Storage Profiles are a combination of an endpoint plus a folder path. Since many media companies are using Jet for distribution workflows and other workflows where they are sending/receiving files from the same source or destination, Storage Profiles make creating new Jobs much more efficient. Let’s say that you are used to transferring files from your office in LA to  corporate HQ in London, but now you have to send the same batch of files from LA to NYC. When you create that new LA → NYC Job you can reuse the LA Source endpoint and path, as it’s already configured as a Storage Profile.

Automate

Trigger file transfers programmatically

If your day-to-day responsibilities include ensuring file transfer operations run smoothly, you know that automating manual processes can significantly reduce the chance of delays and human error.  A couple months back, we released APIs that allow you to manage Jobs and view your endpoints; however, the latest release of our API allows you to trigger file transfers programmatically, allowing you to integrate Jet transfers into your existing workflows.

Audit

Get an update on Job progress

We all have deadlines. With this in mind, when you quickly need to check when the files are going to reach their destination, Jet’s enhanced Job Status widget will provide this information. And when errors do happen to occur, you can quickly take action on the error.

Search for completed files

Jet is frequently used by M&E companies who are regularly transferring large volumes of data. Because of this, we’ve added the ability to search on completed Jobs so you can easily find out when a file has been transferred.
