A Tile Datastore enables a data provider to drag a file into a data sharing tile, triggering a process to a destination in your account.
The Tile Datastore is a cloud connector, meaning that the source does not need an Agent to interact with it.
Although it can be used by any Licence type — Tiles are specifically designed for Tile Licence Accounts — where the sharing can be quickly deployed for ad-hoc shares of data or files.
There are three types of tile datastores available
Excel Tile — can be mapped to any destination datastore.
Delimited Text Tile — can be mapped to any destination datastore.
Generic Tile — which can be used with any file type (such as word, PDF or image files) which are mapped to a Folder destination
