Configuring messaging between Smart Connection 9 users

Configuring messaging between Smart Connection 9 users

InDesign and InCopy users can send each other messages by sending a message to object items such as articles and layouts. Received messages are displayed on screen in a dialog box.

Example: An InDesign user can select a placed article on the layout and send a message to the InCopy user who is currently working on that article.

Note: By enabling the user messages feature, the Smart Connection > Send Message command is enabled in InDesign and InCopy.

Add the following 2 options to the configserver.php file:

1. Messaging

  • File: configserver.php file
  • Name of option: Messaging
  • Location: SERVERFEATURES list
  • Example:

new Feature( 'Messaging' ),

2. Event port

  • File: configserver.php file
  • Name of option: EventPort
  • Location: SERVERFEATURES list
  • Example:

new Feature( 'EventPort', 8093 )

Note: You are free to change the Event Port number. If you are using more than one Enterprise system on a single network, the port must differ or else clients will send and receive messages through databases that the user is not making use of.
