Sitecore Support introduces Sitecore Support Box Storage

In case you have not used Sitecore Support Portal in a while, Sitecore made a change on where to upload the files needed in order to investigate a ticket.

This message can be seen in email notifications from Sitecore Support:

NOTICE:
Sitecore Support File Server available at ftpes://dl.sitecore.net/upload is scheduled for decommissioning on 01-Feb-2019.
Please use an alternative approach for exchanging files with Sitecore Support team via Sitecore Support Box Storage.
Additional information is available here: https://kb.sitecore.net/articles/862874

Basically if you wish to upload files larger than 10 MB to the Sitecore you will need to use the new option that is available to everyone Sitecore Support Box Storage.

After you login to Sitecore Support Portal its quite easy to find Sitecore Suport Box Storage:

Sitecore Box

 

As a limitation you cannot upload more than 3 files at once and each file not bigger than 1 GB.

You also have the possibility to mark the files to what ticket number it belongs to:

Sitecore Support Box Storage security:

1. Files uploaded via this dialog are accessible only to Sitecore Support engineers and are automatically cleaned up 90 days after the upload date.

2. Your colleagues are able to see the full list of files but cannot download them.

First Cluj-Napoca, Romania Sitecore Meetup

Hello there,

We had last week (25th February 2016) our first Sitecore Meetup in Cluj-Napoca, organized by Cluj-Napoca Sitecore Technical User Group and sponsored by Addition

The initial schedule was:

  • 6:45 pm: Best practices in a multisite solution – Vlad Iobagiu, MVP
  • 7:30pm: Continuous Delivery with Team City, Sebastian Tecsi Solution Architect @Addition
  • 8:00 pm: Sitecore v8.1 new features – Daniel Mocan, Solution Architect @Addition

Vlad had some problems with his flights and we held his presentation a bit later and over Skype with lots of Airport Announcements in the background 🙂 But at the end we managed to get the useful information out of him 🙂

Overall was a nice evening with some beer, pizza, soft-drink and lots of talks about Sitecore.

My presentation attached here . Also the little code that I have used is here too: https://github.com/sebastiantecsi/cidemo

Also a more detailed blog post about my presentation will come soon.

Some photos at the event are uploaded here https://www.meetup.com/Cluj-Napoca-Sitecore-Meetup/photos/26771508/ and here https://www.facebook.com/AdditionConsulting/posts/1230094163687458

Thank you everyone for the presence.

Just to start…

I have been thinking about this for a while, and finally decided to create a Blog.

I work for quite a while with Sitecore, so primary I will write here about challenges, suggestions and interesting things related with Sitecore and not only.
