Configuration

To launch the CAS Configuration resource edit form, press the Configure_watch_folder_buttonbutton in the relevant Cinegy Convert component and choose the "Edit" option:

edit_cas_connection_settings

Alternatively, this dialog can be launched by pressing the Addbutton on the "Cinegy Archive" tab of Cinegy Convert Watch Service Configurator:

Here you will have to specify a number of parameters:

To apply the parameters once they are configured, press "OK".

  • Name – the CAS connection name to be displayed in the resources list.

  • Description – any text to be used as the resource description.

  • SQLServer – the SQL server name.

  • Database – the required Cinegy Archive database name.

Having selected the desired one, press "OK".

Note
Please mind that the "OK" button will remain locked until one connection point is selected; the red indicator shows a tooltip explaining the reason why settings cannot be applied.

CAS Connection Import/Export

You can use the corresponding command from the iconbutton menu in the "Cinegy Archive Service" field on top if you wish to save this configuration as a PCS resource or an XML file, or import a previously saved configuration:

Resource_import_export

From now these resources can be used for any specific purposes in the relevant components of your Cinegy Convert structure, being available for all options that support export to and import from PCS.

Having specified all the parameters, press "OK".

The new CAS connection will be added to the list of resources and can be used for further work with Cinegy Archive integrated tasks.

If the previously configured CAS connection has been saved as a PCS resource, it can be selected from the "Load from PCS…​" submenu launched by pressing the Configure_watch_folder_buttonbutton:

load_from_pcs

It is also possible to select the CAS connection configuration from the dedicated dialog. Select the "<Browse>" command and choose the required resource from the list of all available:

select_cas_connection_dialog
Note
Please mind that the "OK" button will remain locked until one connection resource is selected; the red indicator shows a tooltip explaining the reason why settings cannot be applied.

To load theCAS connection configuration from a previously saved file, select the "Load from file…​" command and select the file from the "Load CAS configuration" dialog that appears.

If connection cannot be established, a corresponding message appears explaining the reason of connection failure. For example:
