measurecolor_connections

From this dialog you can manage existing connections and create new connections to MeasureColor servers.

By clicking the [+New connection] button a dialog is shown enabling you to input the company. A key for that company will be created automatically.

KEY

The automatically generated key to be linked to this company. Use this key to create a data link between your Reports server and a MeasureColor server. Go to MeasureColor's System management to input this key under System→External Reports.

KEY TYPE

In the MeasureColor Connections dialog all keys will be of the MeasureColor type. Use the 'External Databases' dialog to create and manage keys for non-MeasureColor servers.

COMPANY

The company this key is linked to as entered during key creation.

CREATOR

The admin that created this key.

LAST ACTIVITY

Timestamp of the last activity. This can aid in establishing a connection with a remote MeasureColor as it shows you whether or not a connection succeeded and when it was the last time data was sent through this key.

ACTIVE

Whether or not this key is currently active.

AVAILABLE

This shows you whether a MeasureColor connection is available or in use. This is important as any connection can be used by one server only. Create a new connection is you need to add a server and none of the connections is availabe. Licens restrictions may apply.

STATUS

Toggle the status between ACTIVE or DISABLED (temporarily).

DELETE

Remove the active key (permanently).

  • Go to the System management module on the MeasureColor server.
  • Go to System → External reports.
  • In the Overview of external Reports servers click the [Add] button.

  • Select Reports as Server type.
  • Name the connection with Connection name.
  • Type the URL where your Reports install can be reached from your PC.
  • Use the Reports generated key and set this as Verification Token.
  • Tick the Send every measurement automatically to synchronize at all times with the Reports server.
  • Tick the Enable connection after creation
  • Press the blue [Test Connection] button. After some time (this can take a while as the system waits for a response from the server).

If the configuration is valid the interface will show that with a green check sign and the connection can be saved by pressing [Update].

If a red cross appears check your settings in both MeasureColor and Reports.
