      Note: If you use SSO, and therefore a different subdomain to app.captionhub.com, you will need to adjust this URL to use the appropriated subdomain, e.g. https://yourcompany.captionhub.com/platforms/qumu/videos/configure_auth

Additional setup for automation

Qumu Cloud requires additional authentication for the configuration of automation. You’ll need to request these details from Qumu support by emailing support@qumu.com and ask them to create a client and provide a JWT secret for a “Server Authentication Integration”. They should send a text file back. You’ll need to open the text file and extract the text after “key”: in quotes to use as your Client ID (example shown in red below), and the text after “jwtSecret”: in quotes as the Dynamic Ingest Secret (example shown in blue below). Please don’t include the quotes.


['The auto generated JWT secret is: {"client": {"key": "somekey", "description": "JWT secret for OAUTH2/UCG", "redirectUris": [], "tokenValidityTimeMs": 10800000, "jwtSecret": "somesecret"}}']


Finally, you’ll need to enter the Qumu User ID of the user you want Dynamic Ingest to run on behalf of. This should be the Qumu Cloud ‘Username’ of the user, not the email address. You can find a list of usernames in the Username column of the user page in Qumu Cloud, e.g. https://yourdomain.qumucloud.com/admin/listUsers.

Automations can now be set up by following our automation guide. You can choose to import all presentations from Qumu (from the point the integration is enabled), or if you prefer to import a subset of projects, please set up tags for automation using the guide below.

Using tags for automation

It is possible to set up an automation template to process a subset of videos from your Qumu account. This is done using “Tags” metadata. For this to work, you need to set up a metadata type called “Tags” in your Qumu Cloud account. This metadata type must be called “Tags” and be of type “Tags”. In order to assign this metadata attribute to your presentations, you also need to enable it for all relevant presentation types. The steps for doing this are as follows.

Creating a metadata type for Tags

  1. Log in to your Qumu Cloud account
  1. Click the “Administration” button on the top right of the screen
  1. In the left menu, under “Workflow”, click “Metadata Type Library”
    1. Notion image
  1. Click the blue “Create” button at the top
  1. Give the new metadata type Name “Tags” and Data type “Tags”. Note that any deviation from this naming will mean the process does not work.

Now you’ll need to add this metadata field to each of your presentation types

  1. In the left menu, under “Workflow”, click “Presentation Types”
