What is the Isarsoft Perception Cloud Connector? 

The Isarsoft Perception cloud connector allows to send data from Isarsoft Perception to third party or cloud systems in real-time.

What does a Cloud Connector do?

The Isarsoft Perception cloud connector offers a variety of interfaces to send metadata to third party systems. If a connection is configured, but the corresponding endpoint is not accessible the data to be sent is stored locally for 72 hours by default. Isarsoft Perception offers different Cloud Backends, they are listed below.

Besides the realtime cloud connection Isarsoft Perception offers an API. Furthermore, data can be exported to Microsoft Excel Spreadsheets, as described in our article.

What happens if there is a missed connection?

If the Cloud Connector is disturbed the data transfer is stopped immediately and the Connector stores the data till the connection between Isarsoft Perception and Cloud-Backend is restored. So no data is lost, it just arrives delayed in the external systems. By default the local storage is configured to store 72 hours of data.


High Security 

The Cloud Connector of the Isarsoft Perception leverages modern encryption standards. The data send to the cloud system thus is protected from unauthorized access.

Real time insight

Because the collected metadata is sent to the backend every second, customers get a real time insight. The high frequent transfer offers the combination of other external programs, which makes a comprehensive insight possible, that enables the costumer to perform on a higher level of efficiency.

How is the Cloud Backend Connected?

The process of integrating a Cloud or Third-Party System is different for each external system. The details are explained for each of the respective systems in separate articles.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
