The Resource Console

The Resource console is the one-stop shop for creating, managing and editing local and remote resources. You can use the Resource console to maintain all your resources, share them on a server, publish or unpublish them, import and export them, etc.

You can invoke the Resource console by clicking Tools / Resource console or selecting the XXXXX icon on the toolbar.


The Resource console consists of the following areas:

· The resource server setup. At the top of the window, select the Server URL and click the Select button to log in. If you want to log in with a different user ID, click Manage logins, which appears to the right of the Select button.
· The list of resources. On the left side, the icons show the different resource types. Click on the icon for the resource type you want to manage.
· The resource filters. Use the drop-down list or text fields above the resource list to filter. You can always filter for the name or description of a resource. If the resource type has a language, you can filter for resources in a given language. In the case of translation memories and term bases, you can also filter for meta-data such as project, client, domain and subject.
· The resource list. This list shows all the resources of a given resource type that comply with the criteria selected in the resource filter. The list contains (in this order) all the server resources you access on the specified server, all local and offline synchronized resources, and all the pinned server resources. Different resource locations are indicated with different colors.
· The resource information pane. The resource information pane gives you details about the resource selected in the resource list.
· The resource commands. You can manage the resources using these commands.

Using the resource list

You will find the following columns in the resource list:

· Pinned or unpinned. When you work with several remote servers, you may want to keep certain resources always available. Log in to the server and click on this column to pin the resource. If you change the Server URL later, the resource will remain visible in the list, under the local resources.

Note: Only published resources can be pinned. If you want to pin a resource that is not published, publish it first using the third column.

· Status. The status column indicates whether a resource is ready for use. If you see the lightning icon, the resource either needs to be repaired or is unavailable through the network.
· Published or unpublished. Not all resources on a server are available for use. If you wish to publish a resource for use, click on the Publish icon. If you wish to unpublish a resource and make it unavailable for use, click on Unpublish icon.

Note: If you unpublish a resource on the server, the pre-configured permissions will be lost. If you just want to edit a resource, remove it from the server, edit it locally and then share it on the server, using the commands below. This way you can keep the permissions.

· Name. This column shows the name of the resource.
· Resource location. This column shows you whether the resource is remote, local or offline synchronized. It also shows if you have a local copy of the remote data available.
· Path/URL. This column shows the URL of the server resource or the local path of the resource.
· Language(s). This column shows the language(s) of the resource, if applicable.
· Filter. In the case of Filter configurations, this column shows what file format this configuration applies to.
· Rule type. In the case of Export path rules, this column shows whether the export path rule is a file rule or a folder rule.
