The ws.conf.json file allows the front server to communicate with the Back Office and the PDF server.

  1. Create the “-“ directory:

    As antidot user

    mkdir /usr/local/afs7/Fluid-Topics/conf/-

  2. Create the following file:

    As antidot user

    /usr/local/afs7/Fluid-Topics/conf/-/ws.conf.json

  3. Add the following lines:

    {
    "bo": "$BACK_OFFICE_URL|$BACK_OFFICE_HOSTNAME",
    "boApiKey": "$BACK_OFFICE_USER_API_KEY",
    "pdfServer": "$PDF_SERVER_HOSTNAME:5000"
    }

Where:

  • "bo" is the URL (starting with http or https) of the Back Office or the hostname of the server hosting the Back Office Environment. "localhost" by default.
  • "boApiKey" is the API key used to access the Back Office instead of using the Back Office user name and user password.
  • "pdfServer" is the hostname of the server hosting the PDF Server Environment (antidot-fluidtopics-pdf-server). The port number used by the pdfServer is always "5000".

PDF server configuration can be modified in the fluidtopics_pdf_server.conf Configuration File.
