There are several automations available in scoopa to integrate with 3rd party services.

An alternative ingest way via a custom S3 bucket for each platform, and an alternative delivery option in form of a push-to-ftp. Read all about that in the following articles.

Ingest via S3 (Direct-Cloud-Ingest)

Ingest to scoopa can be automated to deliver a seamless experience from the creator to the recipient. Besides our web-uploader and our smartphone-app - you can upload assets directly to an S3 Bucket. We call that DCI (Direct Cloud Ingest).

Getting Started:

You can request access to DCI anytime by getting in contact with us (

A dedicated S3-Bucket will then be created by us and linked to your desired platform.

We will provide you with the necessary credentials.


Possible connectivity to S3:

You have multiple options to upload your assets to your newly created S3-Bucket:

  • Manual, using a File-Transfer-Application (for example: Cyberduck, Transmit)

    • This is recommended if you need to upload large quantities to scoopa but do not need automations.

    • This is more reliable and comfortable then using the web interface in your browser.

  • Automated, using an intermediate NAS

    • This is recommended for quickly setting up an automation with moderate use of funds.

    • You can sync folders on your NAS (for example Synology) to upload any new files to your S3 Bucket.

    • For Synology DSM we recommend using the built-in „Cloud-Sync“ App.

  • Automated, directly from your EVS-Network

    • By using C-Next, EVS can deliver directly to an S3 Bucket. Alternatively you can use X-File to Push to a local NAS, do

    • File-Renaming and Prefixing and much more.

  • Any other solution that can connect to S3


Things to consider: 

  • Only video-files are being ingested (extension: mxf, mov, avi, mpg, mpeg, mp4, h264, m4v, wmv, ts)

  • You can prefix your files with a scoopa folder-id: 12345_ddmmyy_yourfilename.mxf
    You can find the folder-id by browsing to your desired scoopa-folder with any web-browser, the id is the last part of the url following „/folder/12345

  • It is also possible to ingest directly to the archive (Different, Cheaper Price Point at 0,2€/GB) by prefixing the file with „dta__“ (<- 2 underscores).
    So a combination of dta__folder-id_yourfilename.mxf also works.

  • If you do not prefix the file - it’s also fine. These files will be ingested to the admins mailbox in scoopa so that the admins can move it to the right place.
    (this is also the case if a folder-id is provided but cannot be found in scoopa)

  • Folder structures on your S3-Bucket are NOT supported. Make sure to only upload files to the root of the bucket. 

  • Files in Folders will be ignored.

  • Incomplete Uploads (Multipart) as well as successful uploads will be purged from the bucket after 24h. So make sure to keep track of your uploads on your end. (for example: the built in „Cloud Sync“ App on Synology NAS does this for you.)

  • Files with the same size and filename will not be ingested again and ignored by scoopa if they have been previously ingested

Push to FTP

It is possible to push new assets automatically to FTP-Server-Folders. Essentially you can setup FTP-Servers and based on those you can setup workflows that connect scoopa-folders and ftp-folders. Once this workflow is setup, new files will not only trigger notification-mails as usual, but also push the new file to the connected FTP-folder.


Start creating your first FTP-Server by navigating to "Automations" -> "FTP" -> "Add FTP-Server".

In the popup, enter your Server Credentials: Server/IP, Username and Password as well as the FTP Port (21 is the default). Next you should give your new connection an name to identify the connection.

After hit save you will be redirected to the FTP-Overview where you should see a checkmark behind your newly created server. This means the connection has been tested and is valid.

If the checkmark is missing, go to edit your FTP-Server and check your credentials. In the edit-view you can also trigger a re-validation of your credentials by pressing "re-validate".

Edit FTP-Server.

You can also delete existing FTP-Servers by clicking the delete-icon in the overview. As with all delete-operations this has to be confirmed.


After you created your first FTP-Server, you can start creating workflows based on that server. Go to: "Automations" -> "FTP" -> "Add Workflow".

You should first enter a suitable name for the workflow that describes the workflow in a few words.

Next you can select the target folder on the ftp-server by navigating through the remote server in the "Target selection" Section.

After that you can select which folders in scoopa should be source folder for this workflow. Select one or more folders in the "Source selection" Section.

You can now save your workflow. It is in effect from now on.

It is also possible to edit the workflow by pressing the edit-icon in the FTP-overview. Besides changing the aforementioned settings you can also disable the workflow.

You can also delete workflows by pressing the delete-icon in the FTP-overview.


You can monitor all running and processed ftp-transfers in the "Transfer-Logs" section.

Besides the overall status of the transfer, the source-file and target ftp+folder you can also see the date, progress and speed of the transfer. If there is an error you can also see the error message here as well as the number of attempts scoopa tried to push the file to the ftp-server.
