The plugin comprises various commands that are available from the Tools menu
in the client.

File transfers are initiated by the schedule backup / archive / restore
commands but are carried out by a separate process. This means that the
client does not automatically reflect updates to a clip on completion of
a transfer. Use ‘Server->Refresh Window’ in the client to pick up any
changes during / after transfer.

The plugin includes the following commands:

* Manage Azure Cloud Archive Service – View full status details of the archive
service and enter / update the configuration values required to access the Azure
Cloud archive. These include region / endpoint, access key, secret key and default
container name. If a connection to Azure Cloud cannot be made an error is displayed
and the values are not saved.

* View Azure Cloud Archive Service Job Queue – list of jobs that can be filtered
by status (Pending, Complete, Failed, All). It provides the capability to view
job contents, view job results and cancel interrupted or queued jobs.

* Schedule copy to Azure Cloud – adds a copy job for each clip selected
(if multiple clips reference the same source media only one job is created).
Copy jobs can be scheduled when the archive service is not running or is offline
but will only be run when the archive service is online (running and Azure
Cloud is accessible). When the copy job is run, the source media associated
with the clip is copied from the file system to Azure Cloud and the original
file is preserved.

* Schedule move to Azure Cloud – as copy but on successful transfer of the
file to storage the job attempts to delete the original file. If for some reason
the deletion fails this does not affect the job status (or archive status of
the clip) but “Purge failed” is recorded in the job data.

* Schedule restore from Azure Cloud – adds a restore job for each clip selected
(if multiple clips reference the same source media only one job is created).
Restores can be scheduled when the archive service is not running or is offline
but will only be run when the archive service is online (running and Azure
Cloud is accessible). When the restore job is run, the source media associated
with the clip is copied from Azure Cloud to the file system.

* Purge files archived to Azure Cloud – deletes the source media associated
with the selected clips if they have been successfully archived.

* Fix Azure Cloud clip archive status – attempts to fix the clip archive parameters if the
clip state has somehow got out of sync with the archive job responsible for
transferring it and it is stuck in an irretrievable state.
