Previously, the web-service had to be manually executed for you to run DvSum rules on your Data Sources.
We are now providing the feature of running SAWS as a service. You need to install and execute it once and not worry about it again. Here is how to install this new feature:
After signing in to DvSum, go to Administration > Manage Account > SAWS tab
Step 1: Click on Download button. A "Webservice" zip file will be downloaded on your system. Unzip the web service folder.
Step 2: Open the Webservice folder and double-click on "saws_service_install.bat". This will ask for your confirmation thrice and then install the SAWS on your system.
Now we need to configure SAWS with DvSum application by providing Host Name and Port where your SAWS will be running. To do that, Go back to DvSum application > Administration > Manage Account > SAWS tab
Step 3: Click on "Add" Button. Provide the Name, Host Name and Port for your SAWS and Save.
Now the SAWS installed on your system is also configured with DvSum application. Hence, the Red Status Cloud will turn Green.
The process is not yet completed. We still need to define a communication key in the properties file of SAWS. This helps the web-service to communicate with DvSum application and your Source.
DvSum Communication key
Whenever you add SAWS, DvSum will generate a Communication Key which allows the communication of SAWS between DvSum Application and your company’s Data Source.
Step 4: Copy the Communication Key. Go to Webservice folder and open configuration.properties file. Set this communication key as “api.token”
Step 5: Save and Close the file configurations.properties
This completes the installation and configuration. Happy Validating your Data!
Note: Once the SAWS is installed, it runs as a Service. You are not required to manually start and stop it. However if you want to stop it, you can double click saws_service_stop.bat or to start again, you can double click saws_service_start.bat file.
