SharePoint integration

Easily find and share assets with SharePoint

Search, download and distribute digital assets in Cumulus without leaving Microsoft’s familiar work environment. This integration solution makes finding and publishing assets easier. Use Cumulus together with the Enterprise Content Management (ECM) system, Microsoft SharePoint, to make your images, videos and documents accessible to the entire enterprise.


The user has access to all Cumulus assets that match his or her permissions within SharePoint. The SharePoint user does not receive a login mask, but is logged on to the Cumulus server via a ‘single sign on’ process. A search for records on the Cumulus server occurs within the SharePoint internal search.

Accelerate and simplify processes

Cumulus optimizes fine-tuning and the approval processes around your digital assets. Use Cumulus as the central storage system to help your team focus on the work rather than waste time searching for the right image, video or document.


After selecting an asset from the search results, the ECM user has the option to download the asset for further use. The Cumulus server retrieves and stores the original data set. Opening an asset in an external web application is also possible.

Access the Cumulus Media Library directly from SharePoint at any time.

SharePoint communicates with the Cumulus Integration Platform

The Canto Integration Platform (CIP) is a module for Cumulus that allows communication with third parties. Files and information can be exchanged between Cumulus and other systems (which use HTTP Web services), regardless of which third-party system is used and which programming language is used. This means that the DAM can be flexibly extended at any time.


CIP provides both read and write access to Cumulus and is divided into several services that allow the handling of assets, their metadata, thumbnails and previews as well as the search, sorting and filtering of data sets. Detailed API documentation provides a quick introduction into the possibilities of the interface.
