Send Documents to Connector Framework Server

To send documents to CFS, use the following procedure.

To send documents to CFS

  1. Create a new configuration to send to Media Server with the process action, or open an existing configuration that you want to modify.

  2. Add a new output task by setting the OutputEngineN parameter. You can give the task any name, for example:

  3. Create a section to configure the task by typing the task name inside square brackets. For example:

  4. In the new section, set the following parameters:

    Type The output engine to use. Set this parameter to CFS.
    CfsHost The host name or IP address of your CFS.
    CfsPort The ACI port of your CFS.
    XslTemplate The path to the XSL template to use to transform records into documents. Media Server includes an XSL template for sending documents to CFS. This template is named toCFS.xsl and is in the Media Server installation directory.
    Input (Optional) A comma-separated list of the tracks that you want to output. Specify one or more tracks. If you do not set this parameter, the engine outputs all tracks that are configured by default as 'output' tracks. For information about whether a track is considered an 'output' track, refer to documentation for your analysis, encoding, and ESP engines in the Media Server Reference.
  5. Configure how to combine records into documents. For information about how you can combine records, see Choose How to Output Data.

  6. Save and close the configuration file. HPE recommends that you save your configuration files in the location specified by the ConfigDirectory parameter.
