  • It is possible to create a parent-folder-filtered search using the Advanced tab in the Popsync Configuration form. You can filter the search to a single parent folder by entering the folder ID.
  • To limit searches to specific Sony Ci Network(s) or Workspace(s), you can add those ID(s) in the Advanced tab.
  • It is also possible to create multiple search entries for Popsync by selecting New Instance under the Select Instance field at the top of the Enable Search form.
  • Each Bluescape user’s corresponding user must be given access to that Network or Workspaces folders to search content. If a user cannot use search to find their content, Popsync will also be unable to find it.

The above instructions assume you are using standard Bluescape and SaaS services. If you are using custom, on-premises, or special (VPI) deployments of either service, contact Bluescape Support.
