The reviewer needs to have the following information which should be set up by the Jenkins administrator:

  • The Jenkins URL
  • A Jenkins username and password.
  • To get the API token and verify the Jenkins account:
    • Log in to Jenkins using the reviewer username and password.
    • Select the pull down next to username at the top of the window and select Configure.
      • Under API Token, Show API Token.... Copy the token.

In addition, the reviewer will need:

Loading Local Files in Google Chrome

Due to security reasons Chrome will not load local files by default. You'll need to launch the Google Chrome browser from the command line window with the additional argument –allow-file-access-from-files as well as allowing local files access within the Chrome Extension.

  • Determine where chrome.exe is located on your machine by entering chrome://version into your Chrome Browser and search for Executable Path.
  • Launch the Google Chrome browser from the command line window with the additional argument –allow-file-access-from-files.
>"path to your chrome installation\chrome.exe" --allow-file-access-from-files
  • Within the Chrome Browser right-click on the Lingoport Incontext QA Chrome Extension and choose Manage Extensions

Using Multiple Displays with Google Chrome

In order for multiple high resolution displays to work properly with Google Chrome you'll need to launch the Google Chrome browser from the command line with additional arguments. You may want to create/change the Chrome shortcut to include the options rather than opening from a command line each time.

  • Determine where chrome.exe is located on your machine by entering chrome://version into your Chrome Browser and search for Executable Path.
  • Launch the Google Chrome browser from the command line window with additional scaling directives /high-dpi-support=1 /force-device-scale-factor=1.
>"path to your chrome installation\chrome.exe" /high-dpi-support=1 /force-device-scale-factor=1
Note: arguments are single spaced. If you need to load local files then add –allow-file-access-from-files to the argument list.
