Upgrade steps for 5.3.0

The configuration for multiple connectors is different. The new configuratIon will be bootstrapped automatically. However, if you have bootstrap data in your project that assumes the old configation, you might need to change this to match the new configuration.

The connector config has moved from
/hippo:configuration/hippo:modules/translation-services-daemon/hippo:moduleconfig/translationsaddon:connector to .../translationsaddon:connector-{connector name}, such as translationsaddon:connector-livewords or translationsaddon:connector-globallink

Existing translation jobs should be updated. All nodes of type translationsaddon:job have a property translationsaddon:connector (String) with a value matching the connector class name (LivewordsTranslationConnector, TesterTranslationConnector, GlobalLinkTranslationConnector, etc). This property can be added manually in the console or created by a simple Groovy Updater Script.

In order to upgrade, please follow the steps below:

  1. Change all references of /hippo:configuration/hippo:modules/translation-services-daemon/hippo:moduleconfig/translationsaddon:connector
    in your bootstrap yaml files to /hippo:configuration/hippo:modules/translation-services-daemon/hippo:moduleconfig/translationsaddon:connector-{connector name}.
    Make sure that any configurations that are not in bootstrap yaml files are moved on the various environments as well. Think URLs and passwords, environment-specific subnodes.
  2. Remove any connector configurations you do not wish to use.
  3. Update all nodes of type translationsaddon:job, add the property translationsaddon:connector (String) if it does not exist with a value matching the connector class name (LivewordsTranslationConnector, TesterTranslationConnector, GlobalLinkTranslationConnector, etc). 
    Note: from version 5.4.11 upwards, the overview dashboard is more robust against any missing property.


Released: 1 July 2020

    In the Star connector, add a star.jobGroups configuration property. It specifies a comma-separated list of job group names to accept when polling for ready jobs.


Released: 7 May 2020


Released: 3 April 2020

    Improvement in the STAR connector: the sent file name is now the document name instead of the id.
    Improvement in the STAR connector: the mapping from standard ISO locales to Microsoft LDIC locales is moved from a coded utility to the connector property star.localesMap, see also the Star connector.
    In the yaml bootstrapping of the advanced search UI part,  use "add" operation instead of overriding property /hippo:configuration/hippo:frontend/cms/cms-advanced-search/workflowPlugin/workflow.categories.


Released: 6 February 2020
