The Egnyte Admin needs to follow the below steps to integrate Anchor with Egnyte.


Step 1: Log in to Egnyte

Step 2: Click on the options button (horizontal 3 lines) and then choose 'Apps & Integrations' (highlighted) on the top right corner of the Egnyte web.

Step 3: In the Apps & Integrations page, type 'Anchor' in the search bar in the upper left corner.

Step 4: Click on the 'Anchor App' shown in the previous step. This will take you to the Anchor app page. On this page click on 'Enable Integration' (highlighted).

Step 5: This will open a pop-up modal that lets you choose how you want to enable Anchor for your organization.

Options are:

  1. Added for groups: allows you add Anchor to groups in your organization
  2. Allowed for users: allows users to add the app by themselves
  3. Added for all users: will add the app by default to all users in your organization

Select an option that is appropriate for your use-case and click 'OK.'

  1. Click the menu icon and select Settings from the drop-down.
  2. Click Applications from the menu on the left.
  3. Add the file extensions you'd like to exclude from uploading and click Save.
