Author-it services

Author-it Modules Installation & Update Guide

Author-it services perform back-end processes for Author-it applications. These services run on applications services servers or publishing servers, and are enabled with Author-it Service Manager.

Service

Description

Options

Author-it Xtend Indexing

The Author-it Xtend Indexing service indexes your library so that Xtend can search it.

Notification

The Notification service sends email notifications for Review.

  • Poll Time (minutes): Determines how frequently the service checks for system events that trigger email notifications.

Publishing

The Publishing service processes remote publishing jobs and publishing jobs for Contribute.

The Publishing service's options specify the location of compilers for publishing outputs. The service requires these locations to publish to those outputs.

These outputs are no longer supported by Author-it, but can still be published to with some setups.

  • Add the paths to the compilers, including the .exe file in the path. For example:

  • HTML Help Compiler
    Example: C:\Program Files (x86)\Author-it\Compilers\HTMLHelp\hhc.exe

  • Win Help Compiler
    Example: C:\Program Files (x86)\Author-it\Compilers\WinHelp\hcrtf.exe

  • Java Compiler
    Example: C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\bin\javaw.exe

  • Java Help Path
    Example: C:\Program Files (x86)\Author-it\Compilers\JavaHelp

  • Oracle Help Path
    Example: C:\Program Files (x86)\Author-it\Compilers\OracleHelp

Reviewer

The Reviewer service enables Review to start and end reviews according to their scheduled start time and end time.

  • Poll Time (minutes): Determines how frequently the service checks for reviews that have reached their scheduled start time or end time.
