The Cinegy Convert Watch Service is designed for monitoring network shares and Cinegy Archive database job folders.

To enable tasks monitoring, the service should be properly configured with all the necessary credentials defined. To run the Cinegy Convert Watch Service configuration tool, go to Start > Cinegy > Cinegy Convert Watch Service Configurator. The Cinegy Convert Watch Service Configurator window is launched:


The indicator in the bottom part of the window shows connection of the Cinegy Convert Watch Service to the Cinegy PCS.

Refer to the Cinegy Process Coordination Service Manual for details on running and configuring the Cinegy PCS.

All the parameters for database connection, the Cinegy Process Coordination Service association, as well as tasks configuration and job folders creation are divided into separate tabs.

All the configured tasks are located in the "Watch Folders" tab in a table view as follows:



Press this button to refresh the watch folders list.

The first column is used for selecting the watch folders ready for processing. Next column displays the corresponding task type icon. The "Priority" column shows the priority of processing for each task, which is defined when configuring watch folders as explained later in this manual.

High priority tasks are processed first, suspending the medium and low priority ones respectively. Once the higher priority task is completed, the lower priority tasks are resumed automatically.

To remove a watch folder, click the Delete_resource_button icon in the corresponding field.

When a watch folder is added and configured, select the checkbox in the first table column to enable the task processing.

All configuration changes are retrieved automatically before processing new tasks.

If the checkbox for the required watch folder is not selected, the task processing will not be performed.

The columns width can be adjusted according to your needs by placing the mouse pointer on the grid line between the columns and dragging left or right to make it narrower or wider respectively:


Adjusting columns order via drag-and-drop, as well as managing watch folders order by pressing the column headers is also supported.
