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

File transfers are initiated by the schedule backup / 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 BlackPearl Archive Service – View full status details of the archive
service and enter / update the configuration values required to access the
BlackPearl. These include end point, access key, secret key and default bucket name.
If a connection to the BlackPearl cannot be made an error is displayed and the
values are not saved.

* View BlackPearl 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 BlackPearl – adds a bulk copy job for the selected clips
(the bulk job contains a child job for each individual clip which can be
monitored separately). 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 the BlackPearl is accessible). When the copy job is run, the source
media associated with each clip is copied from the file system to the BlackPearl
and the original file is preserved.

* Schedule Restore from BlackPearl – adds a bulk restore job for the selected clips
(the bulk job contains a child job for each individual clip which can be
monitored separately). 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 the BlackPearl is accessible). When the restore job is run, the source
media associated with each clip is copied from the BlackPearl to the file system.

* Purge Files Archived to BlackPearl – deletes the source media associated
with the selected clips if they have been successfully archived and the BlackPearl
has backed up since the last archive date of the clips.

* Fix BlackPearl 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.
