Issue Statement

Resources in Adobe Connect Central such as Meeting rooms, uploaded presentations, sundry files, Archive recordings, etc., may have to be moved to another location within same Adobe Connect account. There is a GUI driven option in Adobe Connect Central and there is also the sco move API. The following instructions describe how to use the API to move Adobe Connect resources.


Adobe Connect hosted, on-premise, Managed-ISP and ACMS


Use Web Services API Calls to move Connect resources manually.

Steps To be followed

  1. Login to Connect and Click on Content Tab
  2. Check the URL in the browser address and it will appear as follows:
  4. Or similarly if you click on the Meetings tab, you will see a URL appear as follows:
  6. Notice the value “SCO-ID”
  7. Every type of resource, whether training course, presentation, meeting, recording, etc. in Connect has a unique values called the Sco-id. Connect identifies all resources by the Sco-id.
  8. Every Location has a Sco-ID as well: User Meetings will have a sco-id, Shared Meetings will have a sco-id and My Meetings will have a sco-id and same goes for Content and Courses.
  9. To Move the content from one location or a user profile to another location or user profile, we can use “SCO-MOVE” Api.
  10. Find the sco-id of source content by going to content and checking the URL in browser and keep it handy.
  11. For example, we have to move a Content ‘test.pdf’ from ‘My Content’ to User Content> ABC Content in your account which has the URL
  12. Go to My Content and click on test.pdf and check SCO-ID from address bar from browser. Let us take it as 11111 Keep the sco-id handy.
  13. Go to ‘User Content> ABC Content and check the sco-id from address bar in browser and this will be destination location sco-id or folder id. Let it be 99999
  14. Run the API on browser
    http://ConnectURL/api/xml?action=sco-move&folder-id={destinationlocationScoid}&sco-id={source content sco-id}
  15. In the above example the URL will be Hit enter. If you get a ‘Status OK’ message in browser, it means the content has been moved successfully.
  16. If you don’t get ‘status OK’ message, you may not be logged in or not have access to that location. It is preferred to use an admin account to avoid such issues.
  17. You can repeat the steps for any content or meeting or recording and move it in just few clicks.
