Re: HTTP Request Not Reliable

Yes, it was disabled for us as well. That seems to be the standard setting.

Re: HTTP Request Not Reliable

We had the same problem.
In our case I set "Switch Preferences > Error handling > Retry failed external processes after (minutes)" to 10 minutes. After that it has run flawlessly for a year. Try that if you don't already have the retry active.

Its unfortunate it can't negotiate through the auto managed folders. Thank you for your input.
What do you mean?
Are you required to use auto managed folders?

Re: 7-Zip arguments for Unzipping a zip file using Execute Command

Execute command is tricky. In some cases it works without the quotes and in some with them. The Output options in the properties are important too. You could also try %3 to output to folder. Unfortunately I have tried those options and its still a no go. I was hoping someone out there uses 7-Zip in...

Re: Assemble.Jobs coming from different flows at vastly different times

EDIT: Nevermind, I found a tutorial on YouTube that may be explaining what I need into subfolders... <snip> Then at the end, when it's time to archive the job, I would use that private data variable to "set hierarchy path", under "path segment 1". Then after that I would use "archive hierarchy", an...

Re: Assemble.Jobs coming from different flows at vastly different times

The prior operator of our system created a flow that uses the Assemble job command to archive processed files. This is cool and I understand how it functions pretty well. If 6 jobs come in at relatively the same time with the prefix B123456_, and these are all combined and put into folder B123456 i...

Re: PDF Review Module

Thanks for the help with the inject that seems to work but now I've created a new problem which still causes me to send 2 emails. Once I put variables in my html to email it gives me the information about the report not the file that was preflighted. Is there a way around that? These are the variab...

Re: PDF Review Module

We had the same problem. I solved it by creating a repository-folder that I save the pitstop report to, and then, right before the mail configurator that sends out the link to the review, i added an "inject job" configurator that swaps the pdf-file in the flow to the report instead, and then I coul...

Re: PDF Review Module

I must be missing something cause I am trying to email a report out along with the link to proof the file via PDF Review Module but I can't get the report to send all I keep receiving is the actual file. I can send from pitstop server app in switch and get the report but now from PDF Review Module ...

Re: Trigger e-mail message only once. Can you do that?

Is there any way of identifying the files as belonging to the same job, like for instance some sort of job number in the file name or something? In that case it should be possible to only send mail the first time, and if more files with the same job number comes in, no mail will be sent. That could ...

Re: Send file to Printer in a Flow

For us, the easiest solution was using "FTP Send" to send the pdf to the printer.
As it turns out, all HP Laserjet printers have FTP printing. You just have to enable it.
You can then use "FTP Send" to send the pdf to the printer with anonymous login.
Check if your printer has support for this.

Re: merge PDF

I would do it with two instances of "inject job". I have attached a sample flow. You need to change the job repository folders for the two "inject job" configurators to match the folders with the "pdg" and "plan" files. You also need to change the infolder to the folder with the "letter" files. I ha...

Thanks for the information. It's kinda hard to understand why some things work while others doesn't when you don't know what you're doing... :lol: I know.

Re: XSLT help

job-name in your case is an attribute to the node "job", not an element with a text node directly under "job". The other values are elements with text nodes directly under "job".
That's why you need the @-character. It means "attribute" in xslt.

Re: Unzipping files zipped on a Mac

This is just a guess, but I think your problem is related to the fonts themselves, and not the unzipping. Those are probably mac specific fonts, and they will not work in windows. If standard OpenType or TrueType fonts has been used, this is usually not a problem and the fonts will work anyway, but ...
