Post Installation Test 1 - Cloud - Author-it

Development Documentation

The first test checks the log file for errors and ensures you can connect to the Authentication Service.

To View the Log File and Complete the Authentication Service Test:

  1. Open the folder containing the log files for your installation. The default locations are:
    • Author-it API Server: C:\Program Files\Author-it Software Corporation\Author-it API Server\Logs
    • Author-it API Server for IIS: C:\inetpub\wwwroot\AuthoritAPI\Logs
  2. Locate and open the XML file (for example, AuthoritLogViewer-APIServer_2010-07-16-alg.xml). Then:
    • Check for any error messages (displayed in red). Make any corrections to the installation or setup if required.
    • Locate an entry checking the Authentication service. Copy the URL.
  3. Open a browser window and paste the URL removing the final reference to the service type. For example:
    • Author-it API Server: http://localhost:9098/Authentication
    • Author-it API Server for IIS: http://localhost/AuthoritAPI/Authentication.svc

      A successful test will display the Authentication Service page.
