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.
