Server administrator - Server connections

When memoQ TMSs talk to each other, a project manager on the child server needs to export the child server's certificate and send it to the parent server's administrator. After they add it to the parent server, a project manager on the parent server needs to set up a special user (called a server connection) for the child server. Both tasks can be done on this pane in Server Administrator.

You need the project manager edition of memoQ to manage a memoQ TMS or a memoQ TMS cloud.

You may manage the server only if you are a member of the Project managers or Administrators group in the memoQ TMS. To change most settings, you must be member of the Administrators group.

How to get here

  1. At the very top of the memoQ window - in the Quick Access toolbar quick-access-default -, click the Server Administrator (cogwheel in a cloud) icon-server-administrator icon. The Server Administrator window opens, with the Connection pane.

    Or: On the Project ribbon, click Server Administrator.

  2. Under Category, click Server connections. The Server connections pane appears.


What can you do?

If your server is a parent in a server-to-server workflow:

  • Add or change a server connection: Under the list, click Add or Edit. The Server connection properties window opens.
  • Delete a server connection: Under the list, click Delete, then click Yes to confirm deleting. The connection disappears and you need to add it again if you want to use it.
  • Disable or enable a server connection: Under the list, click Disable or Enable. Disabled connections appear with the Not activated status.

If your customer wants to make your server a child in a server-to-server workflow:

  • Export the server's public key: Under the list, click the Export my public key button. A Save as window opens. Save the certificate as a CER file to your computer. Then send this public key to your customer. They import it to their (parent) server, and add your server (as a child) to the list of server connections.
