Overview

To start the lingobot service, some configuration is needed first.

  1. A lingobot user needs to be added and configured in Jenkins
  2. A lingobot user needs to be added to the Dashboard
  3. A bot needs to be created on your chosen adapter (Slack, Spark, or Flowdock)
  4. All the infomation about these users needs to be encapsulated in the configuration file to start the lingobot service on the globalization server.
  5. Start the lingoport.lingobot service on server.

Configuration Settings: lingobot_config.sh

Configuration for LingoBot is intended to be as simple as possible. All that is needed for this friendly chatbot to be ready for use are a few environment variables, all of which should be set in LingoBot's configuration file. The config file can be found in LingoBot's home directory under the "config" sub-directory. By default, LingoBot home is set to:

/var/lib/jenkins/lingoport/lingobot-<x.y>

Below is a template of the configuration file's contents for a Slack configuration. The file itself is called lingobot_config.sh and is located in /var/lib/jenkins/lingoport/lingobot-<x.y>/config
