Sitecore ImageEngine Integration

To get started, ScientiaMobile will configure your image origin and provide you with an endpoint that you can use to pass images through our service. We will handle the CDN configuration and all you need to do is update a few settings in Sitecore.

The CDN properties are controlled using these settings, found in the Sitecore.config file:

<setting name="Media.MediaLinkServerUrl" value=""/>
<setting name="Media.MediaLinkPrefix" value="-/media/images" />
<setting name="Media.AlwaysIncludeServerUrl" value="true" />
<setting name="MediaResponse.Cacheability" value="public" />
  • Media.MediaLinkServerUrl is the ImageEngine endpoint that ScientiaMobile will configure and provide you.
  • Media.MediaLinkPrefix is the media library link URL. With ImageEngine we need to specify the directory containing your image content. If you require ImageEngine to deliver non-image content, we can either provide you with a secondary domain or we can make a modification to our edge caching rules to enable mixed content.
  • Media.AlwaysIncludeServerUrl tells Sitecore to always include the server URL in the media requests
  • MediaResponse.Cacheability allows the cache settings of any item to be publicly available. This enables us to access cache-control and other headers.
