Configuring the synchronization of produced pages and planned pages using Enterprise Server 10



Configuring the synchronization of produced pages and planned pages using Enterprise Server 10

When working with a Planning tool in Enterprise, the number of produced pages may at some point become out-of-sync with the number of planned pages. When this is the case, a decision needs to be made whether or not the pages should be synchronized.

In Enterprise, this is done as follows:

  • In Smart Connection, a message is shown asking the user if the produced pages should be synchronized with the planned pages. The user can choose between Yes and No. By default, the Yes button is active.
  • In InDesign Server, no user interaction is possible. The default behavior is that the pages are synchronized.

Overruling the default behavior

Info: This feature requires Enterprise Server 10.0.1 or higher.

Because synchronizing pages may result in content loss (pages that are removed may contain content), it is safer to have 'don't synchronize the pages' as the default option.

This behavior can be set by using the PageSyncDefaultsToNo option:

  • For InDesign Server, the PageSyncDefaultsToNo option can be set either in the configserver.php file of Enterprise Server or in the WWSettings.xml file of each Smart Connection for InDesign Server installation.
  • For InDesign, the PageSyncDefaultsToNo option can only be enabled through the WWSettings.xml file of each Smart Connection for InDesign Server installation. (InDesign ignores the option set in the configserver.php file.)

Configuring the configserver.php file

  • File: configserver.php file
  • Name of option: PageSyncDefaultsToNo
  • Area: SERVERFEATURES
  • Example:

new Feature( 'PageSyncDefaultsToNo'),

Note: For the InDesign Server Automation feature, the PageSyncDefaultsToNo option is already enabled in the configserver.php file.

Configuring the WWSettings.xml file

  • File: WWSettings.xml file
  • Name of option: PageSyncDefaultsToNo
  • Location: anywhere between the <Settings> </Settings> tags
  • Example:

<SCEnt:PageSyncDefaultsToNo/>
