Third-Party Apps That Can Be Used With Egnyte

This article contains a list of third-party mobile applications that we have certified to work with Egnyte. Most of the apps below either link directly into Egnyte or can connect into your account using WebDAV or FTP.

Typically, there are two different workflows for using a third-party mobile app to view or edit files:

  1. Open third-party app → Connect to Egnyte directly or via WebDAV → Access files and automatically save back to Egnyte
  2. Open Egnyte mobile app and select file → Choose "Open In" option to view or edit file with a different app → Use a "Save Back" or "Open In" option from within third-party app to upload file back to Egnyte mobile app

This article will focus on the first workflow, but you should know that most of the apps below also support the second process via a "Save Back" or "Open In" option.

Setting Up

Apps that Connect via WebDAV

For apps that connect to Egnyte using WebDAV, use the following structure when entering credentials.

Server Name/ URL: https://mycompany.egnyte.com/webdav

Username/ Login: <your Egnyte username>

Password: <your Egnyte password>

Note that you will need to have Map Drive access enabled in Egnyte to link your account with any apps that require a WebDAV connection. Account admins can access this from Settings → Configuration → Security tab.

Only Power Users have access to WebDAV in Egnyte.

Apps that Connect Directly with Egnyte

For apps that connect directly to Egnyte, input your credentials as you normally would:

Your Egnyte account name: mycompany

Username: <your Egnyte username>

Password: <your Egnyte password>

Apps that Connect via FTP

For FTP clients, use the following structure.

FTP Server/ Host: ftp-mycompany.egnyte.com

Username: yourEgnyteusername@mycompany

Password: <your Egnyte password>

Egnyte supports three transfer protocols: FTP, FTPS, and FTPES. Make sure the protocol your app is using is consistent with your Egnyte account’s FTP policy or you will be unable to establish a connection. Admins can access this from Settings → Configuration → Applications tab.

If your account only allows secure FTP connections, make sure the app is using FTPES.
