How to use Pitstop Server (not CLI !) in scripts?

Post by DrPrepress » Thu Oct 11, 2018 4:23 pm

Colleagues, please, give an example code of an Action or a Profile from the script without Command Line Interface.

Thanks.

Any reason you don't want to use the CLI?

Dear bens! In the subject of post, I clearly indicated that I was interested in calling Pitstop without the CLI.

For compatibility with versions earlier than 13

Am I correct when I say you have heard about PitStop Server SDK? This was the method to automate PitStop Server before there was PitStop Server CLI. However, PitStop Server SDK is gone for a long time already (bens might know how long)

On the Enfocus website you can find the manuals of PitStop Server versions 10, 11, 12, 13, 2017 and 2018. There are PitStop Server CLI manuals available for all these versions of PitStop Server, so you can use PitStop Server CLI to automate versions of PitStop Server prior to version 13.

You can find the manuals here:

The CLI was introduced with PitStop Server 09, over 9 years ago.

If you really need to support PitStop Server 08 or earlier - or you need more control than the CLI provides - then there is the PitStop Library SDK. But this requires knowledge of the C programming language; it is not scriptable as such. See https://www.enfocus.com/en/products/pitstop-library-sdk

I read it. We'll have to use the CLI.
Thank you all!
