Upgrading GlobalSight
Comparing GlobalSight with WorldServer

This document describes the Web services API provided by GlobalSight. This API is used to integrate external systems to GlobalSight in order to submit content to the localization/translation work-flow, and monitor its status.

The Web services API allows any client to connect and exchange data with GlobalSight, regardless of its implementation technology or operating system.

IP filter

GlobalSight has an IP filter functionality as a company-level option that can be configured at super company level to decide whether to enable or disable the function. By default, it is enabled.

When enabled, only IPs in the list of those allowed can invoke web service APIs. When disabled, any IP can do this.

To determine if this option is enabled, the GlobalSight IP filter needs to know the username and password of the invoker. These must therefore be delivered to the GS server. If they are not delivered, GlobalSight filters the IPs even when set to false.

For Java client, client codes are commonly generated via an IDE (Integrated Development Environment) such as Eclipse. Make the following other changes:

1. Add an override method to AmbassadorServiceLocator.java:

getAmbassadorWebService(java.net.URL portAddress, 
                              String userName, 
                              String password)

2. Add construct to AmbassadorWebServiceSoapBindingStub.java:

public AmbassadorWebServiceSoapBindingStub(
        java.net.URL endpointURL,
        javax.xml.rpc.Service service,
        String userName, 
        String password)
{
  this(service);
  super.cachedEndpoint = endpointURL;
  super.cachedUsername = userName;
  super.cachedPassword = password;
}

3. Obtain the proxy via getAmbassadorWebService() with the user ID and password

You can now invoke the GlobalSight Web service API.

Description of the web service

The web service exposes the methods described in this section in pseudocode. For a description of WSDL, see the GlobalSight web service WSDL section below. The WSDL can be queried from the GlobalSight server at runtime by reading the following URL:

http://<server>:<port>/globalsight/services/AmbassadorWebService?wsdl

Most Web service methods return XML documents as a result of execution. The format of the individual response XML depends on the specific method invoked.

In the case of any errors, an XML response describing the error, the method invoked, and its arguments, are returned in the following format:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF‐8" ?>
<errorXml>
  <method>login</method>
  <error>Unable to login to GlobalSight with username ‘joe’ and password ‘joepw’
  </error>
</errorXml>

Some web service APIs have permission limits. For example, the current user must have “customer.upload” permissions to use the uploadFile() method to upload files to GlobalSight. Otherwise, an error arises indicating that the current user does not have permission. For a description of the permissions required, take note of the Required Permissions references in the description of each API.

Authentication

  • String login(String username, String password)
    • username–the username of the login user
    • password – the password of the login user

The login() method must be called prior to using the web services. The login() method takes in a username and password, and returns an access token as a string. The username/password must be valid to access GlobalSight. The returned access token must then be passed to subsequent web service calls.

  • String getAllPermissionsByUser(String accessToken )
    • accessToken – the accessToken received from login()

This is available in GlobalSight version 7.1.4.0 and onwards.

This method returns XML containing all of the permissions that the current logged user has. An example XML response is:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF‐8" ?>
<Permissions>
               <PermissionGrp>			
                      <id>70</id>
                      <name>projects.edit</name>
               </PermissionGrp>
               <PermissionGrp>
                      <id>83</id>
                      <name>locprofiles.new</name>
               </PermissionGrp>
               <PermissionGrp>
                      <id>89</id>
                      <name>fileprofiles.view</name>
               </PermissionGrp>
</Permissions> 
  • String getVersion(String accessToken )
    • accessToken – the accessToken received from login()

The getVersion() method is used for getting the version scope that the Desktop Icon supports. For example, (3.1, 7.1) means that the Desktop Icon supports a minimal server version of 3.1 and a maximum version of 7.1. Use the new getGSVersion() method from 8.2.1 onwards.

This only applies to the Desktop Icon application.

  • String getGSVersion(String accessToken )
    • accessToken – the accessToken received from login()

The getGSVersion() method is used for getting the version scope that the Desktop Icon supports. For example, (3.1, 7.1) means that the Desktop Icon supports a minimal server version of 3.1 and a maximum version of 7.1. Use this method from 8.2.1 onwards.

This only applies to the Desktop Icon application.

  • String getServerVersion(String accessToken )
    • accessToken – the accessToken received from login()

This method is used for getting the Globalsight server version, for example 7.1.8.0.

  • String isExistedPermission(String accessToken, String permissionName)
    • accessToken – the accessToken received from login()

Check if the permission given exists on the target server. This is used to check if a certain feature has been deployed on the server. It returns “true” or “false” in the String.

Content import

Note: best practice for creating jobs is to use API's in order

login >> getUniqueJobName >> uploadFileForInitial >> uploadAttributeFiles >> addJobComment >> createJobOnInitial

Required steps are in bold

  • void uploadFile(HashMap args)
    • accessToken – the accessToken received from login()
    • jobName – the desired jobname to use for this job
    • filePath – the file’s local path
    • fileProfileId – file profile id, each file should select a file profile
    • Bytes – file contents in bytes[]

The uploadFile() method is used for uploading a file to the server. The contents of the file is passed to uploadFile() via the Bytes argument. If uploadFile() is called more than once with the same jobName and filePath, it will append the content (this can be used to upload files in chunks). The value of filePath is used by the server to determine the relative path to the file that will be created on the server.

Required Permissions: DataSources >> Upload Files

  • void uploadFile(String accessToken, String jobName, String filePath,String fileProfileId, String content)
    • accessToken – the accessToken received from login()
    • jobName – the desired jobname to use for this job
    • filePath - The path of the file
    • fileProfileId –The id of the file profile
    • content – Job content(String type)

The uploadFile() method is used for uploading a file to the server. The contents of the file is passed to uploadFile() via the content argument. If uploadFile() is called more than once with the same jobName and filePath, it will append the content (this can be used to upload files in chunks). The value of filePath is used by the server to determine the relative path to the file that will be created on the server.

Required Permissions: DataSources >> Upload Files

  • void uploadFile(String accessToken, String jobName, String filePath,String fileProfileId, byte [] content)
    • accessToken – the accessToken received from login()
    • jobName – the desired jobname to use for this job
    • filePath - The path of the file
    • fileProfileId –The id of the file profile
    • content – Job content(byte[] type)

The uploadFile() method is used for uploading a file to the server. The contents of the file is passed to uploadFile() via the content argument. If uploadFile() is called more than once with the same jobName and filePath, it will append the content (this can be used to upload files in chunks). The value of filePath is used by the server to determine the relative path to the file that will be created on the server.

Required Permissions: DataSources >> Upload Files

  • void uploadFileForInitial(HashMap args)
    • args -- parameters for uploading files to GlobalSight server. There are some parameters contained in the object,
      • accessToken -- Access token
      • jobName -- job name which is defined by user
      • jobId -- ID of job, if its value is null, it means that this is a new job. Otherwise, new file will be just uploaded.
      • filePath -- The path of the file
      • fileProfileId -- The id of the file profile
      • priority -- Priority of the job
      • bytes -- Content of uploaded file

The uploadFileForInitial() method is used for uploading a file to the GlobalSight server and set the process status of job as UPLOADING. The difference between this method and uploadFile() is uploadFileForInitial() will create a job instance and set its status to UPLOADING first, but uploadFile() method is just handled to upload file to GlobalSight server. The contents of the file is passed to uploadFileForInitial() via the content argument. If uploadFileForInitial() is called more than once with the same jobName and filePath, it will append the content (this can be used to upload files in chunks). The value of filePath is used by the server to determine the relative path to the file that will be created on the server.

Required Permissions: DataSources >> Upload Files

  • void uploadAttributeFiles(String accessToken, String jobName, String attInternalName, String fileName, byte[] bytes)
    • accessToken – the accessToken received from login()
    • jobName – the unique name of a job
    • attInternalName – The internal name of Attribute
    • fileName – the file name
    • bytes – the content of the file

This method is used for uploading job attribute files.

    • targetLocales –It is a Vector.Contains the target locales which like to be translated,can not be empty.

Locales bound in the L10N profile are selected. The target locales are added to a vector. This method creates a job with the target locales selected and multiple format files that are selected with different file profiles.

  • void createJob(String accessToken, String jobName, String comment,String filePaths, String fileProfileIds, String targetLocales)
    • accessToken – the accessToken received from login()
    • jobName –the desired jobname to use for this job
    • comment –the comment of this job
    • filePaths - String Path of files which are contained in job, split by "|",sample:"Setup.docx" or "Setup.docx|Overview_Partner.docx".Can not be empty.

    • targetLocales – String Target locales which like to be translated, split by "|",sample:"it_IT,de_DE" or "it_IT,de_DE|it_IT,de_DE". If empty, all locales of current L10nProfile will be used default.

This method is used for creating a job with the selected target locales and multiple format files that are selected with different file profiles.

  • void createJobOnInitial(HashMap args)
    • args -- parameters for creating a job. There are some parameters contained in the object,
      • accessToken -- Access token

      • comment -- comment for this job
      • filePaths - It is a Vector.Contains the file path in job,can not be empty.
      • fileProfileIds – It is a Vector.Contains the file profile id ,can not be empty.
      • targetLocales – It is a Vector.Contains the target locales which like to be translated,can not be empty.
      • priority -- priority of job
      • attributes – Attributes used to create the job

This method is used for creating a job with the selected target locales and multiple format files that are selected with different file profiles. In using this method, it can apply more job status information in creating process such as IN_QUEUE. This method only can be invoked after running uploadFileForInitial() method because it needs jobId to get job instance instead of using jobName.

  • void createJob(String accessToken, String jobName, String comment,String filePaths, String fileProfileIds, String targetLocales, String attributeXml)
    • accessToken – the accessToken received from login()
    • jobName –the desired jobname to use for this job

    • taskId – on the original GS server
    • job comment, original activity comments
    • segment comment
    • original GS server WSDL url(String)

Content export

  • String getJobExportFiles (String accessToken, String jobName)
    • accessToken – the accessToken received from login()
    • jobName – the unique name of a job

This method is used to get the exported files with a specified job name. It returns the file path information and the user can invoke the corresponding methods to get it from GlobalSight server.

The response XML is in the format:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<jobFiles>
       <paths>de_DE/testjob/demo/demo_company.html</paths>
       <root>http://127.0.1.1:8080/globalsight/cxedocs/QA</root>
</jobFiles>
  • String getJobExportWorkflowFiles (String accessToken, String jobName, String workflowLocale)
    • accessToken – the accessToken received from login()

</jobFiles>
  • String exportJob (String accessToken, String jobName)
    • accessToken – the accessToken received from login()
    • jobName – the unique name of a job

This exports all pages for all target locale workflows of the specified job. If the workflows are in the LOCALIZED state, then a full export is performed and segments may be committed to the TM, depending on how the associated translation profile has been configured.

Otherwise, an interim export is performed and the latest versions of the files are simply written out. Files are exported to the default export location. The getLocalizedDocuments() method can also be used to get access to the exported files. The response XML is in the format:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<exportStatus>
       <jobName>test job</jobName>
       <workflowLocale>All Locales</workflowLocale>
       <status>Export Request Sent</status>
</exportStatus>

Calls to exportJob() are asynchronous. The method returns quickly, but the actual export duration depends on the complexity of the export.

  • String exportWorkflow (String accessToken, String jobName, String locale)
    • accessToken – the accessToken received from login()
    • jobName – the unique name of a job locale – the workflow locale to export

Documentum support

  • String passDCTMAccount(String accessToken, String docBase, String dctmUserName, String dctmPassword)
    • accessToken – the accessToken received from login()

This method is for Documentum only. The passDCTMAccount() method must be called via HTTPS to start using the web service. The login() method logs into GlobalSight first, then passes on the Documentum username/password and docbase for GlobalSight to check out and check in files to and from the Documentum server.

The Documentum user account returned should be passed on to the subsequent web service calls, which needs user information such as the createDocumnetumJob() or cancelDocumentumJob() method.
