There are two settings that affect how files stored in Device Magic File Storage are accessed.

Version 1

Version 1 is the old organization-level setting that controlled whether a user needed to be logged in to access files stored in the Device Magic File Storage.

You can find this setting in your Organization Settings.

It is either Enabled - in which case anyone can access files if they have the link.

Or off - a user will need to be logged into your organization to be able to access the files.

Version 2 is the newly released way to access the stored files.

In version 2 each Destination / Device Magic Database export has its own Public/Private setting.

  • The Private link will always require a login to access.
  • The Public link will be accessible without login if the file is set to Public.

Managing V2 Stored Files

Clicking the "Manage Stored Files" button will take you to a page where you can view and search all your stored files.

You can edit he Public/Private setting on any of the files using the dropdown.

There are 3 options:

  • Private: Both links will work but the user has to be logged in to view the file.
  • Public: The Private link will require the user to be logged in, the Public link will let anyone with the link access the file.
  • Full Public: Both links will let anybody access the file.
