Both methods are described in more detail in the sections below.

Important

The details you entered in the configuration tool when you configured the Continia File Service must be reused when you set up the service in Business Central, so it's important that they're identical with the ones you enter when following the guides below.

Also, note that when you migrate your files to the Continia File Service using one of the below methods, the files must be located on the same drive in the local file system.

Standard configuration

To configure the Continia File Service in Business Central using the standard assisted setup guide, follow these steps:

  1. Choose the Search icon, enter Storage Migration Assisted Setup Guide, and then choose the related link.
  2. Follow the on-screen instructions.
  3. When you're done, select Finish to close the guide and implement your settings.

The Continia File Service is now fully configured and ready for use as your default document storage type.

Advanced setup

  2. On the General FastTab, under Document Storage Type, select File Service.
