Custom Tasks

How do I setup AtTask (WorkFront) in order to create an AtTask project for each prep kit?

AtTask is set-up using 'CustomTasks'. See Custom Tasks for details.


How do I setup the email configuration in order to send status emails?

The email configuration file, config_email_global.xml is located in the ../L10nStreamlining/config folder. See Sending Emails for details.

L10n Vendors

How do I setup my project's translation vendor?

The translation vendor is defined through the configuration file and is located in a L10nStreamlining config folder. This file can be located at the project, group or global level. For example, if all of your projects will be sent to the same vendor then the configuration file can be located at the group or global level.

See Translation Vendors for more information.

How do I hide the password

Use a .netrc file, The .netrc file is located in the $HOME directory.

Example of a .netrc:

login username
password myPassword

Then ftp will use the login and username in the .netrc file to connect and the username password are not visible.

Prep Kit

I have clicked on Prep Kit but I don't want this kit to be translated any more. How do I deactivate the kit?

When you have pressed the Prep Kit button, a number of steps were taken. In particular, a prep kit was created, the database was updated, and the files were sent to the configured translation end point.

  • Open a command prompt
  • Use the 'deactivate' command for this project and this version of the kit
  • Go to the staging/sendkits/<group_name>/<project_name> and if the prep kit you want to deactivate is still there, remove those files.
  • Run the Automation job
  • Check the Dashboard to make sure you do not see the prep kit version you deactivated in the outstanding kits
  • Notify (email, phone, etc.) the responsible party in charge of translation this job is not needed any longer and has been deactivated in the Lingoport system.

I always want to send full files rather than deltas to my vendor. How do I set this up?

By default, LRM sends out deltas in a prep kit unless there is a missing file. This setting, prep.kit.changes.only, is located in configuration file which resides in the ../L10nStreamlining/<groupname>/config folder.

The possible values are:

  • 0 - prep files are for full-file
  • 1 - prep files can be for changes-only

Project Definition

How do I send reports to a different location?

Use option -f <report path> to send the report to a different report location. See Create Reports for additional information.

How do I call an LRM job remotely?

Calling from Remote / cURL

One possible way to call a Jenkins job remotely is to use cURL. For instance,

 curl "<JENKINS_URL>/view/Infrastructure/job/LRMCriticalErrors/buildWithParameters?token=LGCRITICAL&SRC_PROJECT=CET.Smoke&BRANCH_NAME=MysterO"

will invoke the 'LRMCriticalErrors', a job that checks for critical errors on resource files handled by an LRM project, here 'CET.Smoke', for a given branch, here 'MysterO'.

If you want to get the console output, use the following command after the previous one:

 curl -X POST  "<JENKINS_URL>/view/Infrastructure/job/LRMCriticalErrors/lastBuild/consoleText"

To be called remotely, a Jenkins job must be configured with a token for the 'Build Trigger Remotely' build trigger, like LGCRITICAL for LRMCriticalErrors.

Calling from Remote / LingoBot CLI

LingoBot can be set up to be invoked either from a collaborative environment, such as Slack, or from a command line using lingobot-cli.jar.

Some infrastructure Jenkins jobs can be invoked that way. (See java -jar lingobot-cli.jar). For instance, to check for LRM resource files critical errors, the same job as for the cURL invocation above, use this command

 java -jar lingobot-cli.jar "show errors" "CET.Smoke:MysterO"
