Accessing server TMs with the Project Automation API
Thread poster: jnesbit
Mar 20, 2013

Hi, everybody. I'm having trouble getting information from our server admin for creating my first automation project using the Project Automation API. Seems like this should be a simple scrap of info to find, but no luck so far... When adding a server based translation memory there are three parameters required according to the documentation:

TranslationProviderConfiguration tmConfig = project.GetTranslationProviderConfiguration();
new TranslationProviderCascadeEntry
new TranslationProviderReference(new Uri(String.Format("{0}{1}/{2}", uri, path, tmname))), true, true, true, 0

For uri I'm using sdltm.http://SDLTMServerAddress and tmname will be the name of the desired translation memory... the question is what string is required for path? Is this something which is specified somewhere in the configuration for SDL TMS on the server side?

Finally, can anyone recommend any resources beyond the SDL Project Automation API for help in getting started with developing automation tools?

Thank you!

... why you don't use the OpenExchange Developers forum for this question. I could be wrong but I think you'll get more joy with a question like this in there.

Drop me an email if you need help with this.
