How to report issues
How to report issues
○ All issues that require engagement with Engineering team should be
sent to Development Manager first
○ Development Manager will work with team’s Scrum Master to balance
engagement against team’s current workload
○ For speedier response, engagement requests should provide as much
information as possible from Engagement Checklist
○ If an issue is found to be a defect in any part of the product, the defect
should be raised in “Language Technologies” project in TestTrack, not
“Translation” or “Terminology”
– Contact TestTrack Administrators for assistance if you do not currently have
access to that project
– SoloBug template will be issued by the TestTrack Administrators to assist with
defect raising

Part 2:
SDL GroupShare
Technical Overview
Install Locations
○ Application Installed into C:\Program Files (x86)\SDL\SDL
Server
– SDL Server\Application
• Main application binaries
– SDL Server\Web
• Web site binaries
○ Web Site
– Creates root site ‘SDL Server’
– Serves files from Program Files (x86)\SDL\SDL Server\Web
20
Links in the Chain
○ Client to Router
– WCF over HTTP/HTTPS/TCP
– Configured through web.config and registry
○ Router to Application Server
– WCF over TCP/SSL
– Configured through registry on web server and application server
○ Application Server to Execution Server
– Via Queue in Database
– Self-configuring via svc.ServiceProcess
○ Application/Execution Servers to Database
– ADO.Net over the Oracle .Net Provider
– Configured via the registry
21
Client to Router
○ Silverlight client always communicates back to the server that served
the application
– No configuration required for hostname
○ Client initially connects to the Discovery Service
– /platform/sdl/Discovery.svc
○ Discovery Service returns list of configured endpoints
– Endpoints configured in web.config
○ Client tests endpoint in preferred order
– Silverlight – HTTPS, HTTP
– Windows Client – TCP, HTTPS, HTTP
○ Connects to ‘best’ endpoint
22
Router Configuration
○
Endpoints defined in platform/web.config
<system.serviceModel>
<services>
<!-- router services -->
<service name="Sdl.Enterprise2.Platform.Router.IssuedTokenRouter" behaviorConfiguration="routerServiceBehavior">
<!-- Issued Token Router http endpoint -->
<endpoint name="Http.IssuedToken.RequestReply"
address=""
binding="basicHttpBinding"
bindingConfiguration="httpIssuedTokenBinding"
contract="Sdl.Enterprise2.Platform.Router.IRequestReplyRouter" />
<endpoint name="Http.IssuedToken.Metadata"
address="/mex"
binding="mexHttpBinding"
bindingConfiguration=""
contract="IMetadataExchange" />
</service>
:
○
○
Out of the box supports HTTP
–
Needs updating to support HTTPS or TCP
–
Installer includes commented out HTTPS and TCP endpoint
HTTPS Requires customer certificate
–
23
From recognised certification authority
Router to Application Server (Router end)
○ Routing Table in Registry
– HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\SDL\Platform\Router
○ Installer creates a single ‘default’ entry
– e.g. /default/BaseAddress = net.tcp://appserver.sdl.com:41000
– Sends all traffic to specified host/port
– Host and port specified by user during installation
○ Supports multi-application server deployments
– e.g. /multiterm.svc/BaseAddress = net.tcp://mtappserver.sdl.com:41000
24
Router to Application Server (Application Server
end)
○ Application Server listens to endpoint defined in registry
 HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\SDL\Platform\Services\Application
○ Same format as Router
– BaseAddress = net.tcp://localhost:41000
○ Same location also used for generic Application Server settings
– PeriodicTaskDaemon (true/false)
• If set the Application Server runs any periodic tasks that have been configured
– Register (true/false)
• If set the Application Server registers itself with the GroupShare System Database
25
Router to Application Server
○ Secure Channel
– communications goes over secure channel (SSL)
○ Application Server requires a certificate
– Installed into trusted root store
○ Installer creates and installs certificate
– On Application Server
○ User can select their own certificate at install time
– Larger customers may have existing SSL certificate
26
Service Registration
○ GroupShare Services self-register with System Database
– Adds entry to svc.ServiceProcess table
• Includes server hostname
– Registered services immediately become visible to system
– Application Service starts pulling work from queue.
• Work item assigned to named server with no config
○ Deploying new Application Server
– Install service
– Configure database connection string
– Start service
○ Quick and easy to add capacity
27
Application Service to Execution Service
○ All communications go via work item queue
–
svc.WorkItem
○ Single central work item queue
–
–
–
Simple – easy to monitor
Implicit load balancing
Prioritised queue
○ Work Items added to queue
–
–
–
Application Server,
Execution Services
Workflow Service
○ Execution Service
–
–
Polls queue and takes next highest priority work item
Work Item remains on queue marked as assigned to service
•
28
If service fails work item will time out and be reallocated to next available Application Server
Services to Database
○ All data access goes through database agnostic layer
–
–
Supports SQL Server, SQL Express, Oracle,
Some trade-off between performance and portability
○ Connection Strings live in Registry
–
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\SDL\Platform\Connections
○ Separate Connection Strings for each logical schema
–
Sdl.Identity – security schema
•
–
Sdl.System – GroupShare system schemas
•
–
etm – Enterprise Translation Memory
Sdl.Project – Translation Memory schema
•
29
svc - Services
Sdl.Translation – Translation Memory schema
•
–
sts – Secure Token Service
proj– Project Server schema
Services to Database
– Connection String
• Standard .Net format
• Data Source=(local);Initial Catalog=SDLSystem;Integrated Security=True
– Provider
• .Net Provider Class
• e.g. System.Data.SqlClient
○ Recommend Integrated Security
– Microsoft recommended best-practice
– Implies account used to run Application and Execution Services must
have appropriate access to GroupShare Database
• Installer asks for a user-created domain account
– TM Server requires dbCreator permission to create containers
30
GroupShare System Database
○ Separate schemas for each component
–
–
–
–
svc – services
sts – secure token service
etm – enterprise translation memory (not the actual TMs)
proj – project server
○ Schema versioning
– dbo.SchemaVersion table
• Holds version number of each installed schema
• Allows automatic schema upgrades in future releases
31
GroupShare 2014 System Database Changes
○ svc – services
– Additional settings for e-mail notifications
○ sts – secure token service
– Changes to improve performance
○ proj – project server
– Additional table and store procedure to support Assignment
32
File Store
○ File Store
– File store folder requires read / write permission for the service account used to
run Application Server and Execution Server
– File store can be a UNC folder (network folder)
– Project Server currently support only a single file store
○ File Store Folder Structure
– Folder per project
• Named using GUID
– Project folder has a flat file structure (Unlike project structure in Translation
Studio)
– Project files
• Named using <FileVersionGuid>.<Filename>.<ext>
33
File Store
○ Package folder
–
–
–
–
–
Two package types
•
Synchronization package
•
Publish package
Synchronization package
•
Created when users requests the project and by requesting a update
•
Used to synchronize data between server and Translation Studio client
Publish package used
•
Created when publishing a project from Translation Studio
•
Named using <Guid>.PublishProject-<Timestamp>.sdlppx
Synchronization & Publish packages can not be open in Translation Studio
Synchronization Packages are deleted once the client has download the package
○ Change file store location
–
–
Change the Path setting in the Setting table in the database
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\SDL\Server\Install\filesStorePath
•
34
Please note this only used as a fall back by the installer if the information can not be retrieved from the database
Licensing
○ GroupShare License Activate / Deactivate
–
Run SDL\SDL Studio GroupShare Product Activation from the start menu
○ View Current License
