API Library Login Test

To Complete the Library Login Test:

  1. Copy the General Concepts folder from the Author-it SDK Samples folder to C:\Inetpub\wwwroot. Rename the folder by removing all spaces.

    Note, there are several General Concepts folders, use the following folder for your installation:

    • Author-it API Server: General Concepts (ExtJS)
    • API Server Internet Information Services: General Concepts (API Server for IIS) [which displays the IIS Manager version of the ExtJS login screen]
  2. Open a browser window and add the URL to the default.htm file. For example, http://localhost/[folder name]/default.htm. The library login page will be displayed.
  3. Add the API Server URL.
    • Author-it API Server: example is: http://localhost:9098
    • API Server Internet Information Services: examples are: /AuthoritAPI or http://localhost/AuthoritAPI
  4. Add the credentials for logging in to the library. Click Login.

    When the Author-it API Server communicates successfully with the library, the following message is displayed (note, the message may not display immediately; allow the server time to complete the communication process [usually within a minute]):

    API Library Login Successful

    Note: If the login fails check the credentials and the library alias are correct.

  5. Add a Folder ID and click Get Folder. Note, folder IDs are stored in the library database.

    When successful the following message is displayed with the name of the selected folder:
