The Consumers page
Some Consumers provided by 1E create their own Consumer entries on the Consumers page, others require that these are added by hand.
You can create a Consumer entry by hand by clicking on the Add button. Doing this displays a form used to define how the Consumer will interact with Tachyon. The parameters available on this form are described in the following table:
|Name||Sets the name for the consumer. This will be determined by the third-party application and must be entered correctly to enable the consumer to work. For example the Tachyon Configuration Manager console extensions must have a consumer defined that is called CmConsoleExtensions.|
|Consumer URL (optional)||This value can be used as a placeholder for any URL that is used by the Consumer. Tachyon never makes use of this so this is more of a reference for Tachyon Consumer Administrators if they want to look at the Consumer interface. It is also the case that not all Consumers have a URL, so this parameter can be safely left at its default.|
|Maximum simultaneous instructions||Determines the number of simultaneous instructions that may be made by the Consumer. Instructions in Tachyon have a Gather data for setting which determines how long the instruction will be in operation gathering data. The Maximum simultaneous instructions value sets how many instructions a Consumer can have in operation at any one time. If the value is exceeded, newly requested instructions will be delayed until one of the in operation instructions has completed.|
|Offload target URL||Determines the target URL when attempting to offload responses to a Consumer. The Consumer will need to have a listener at that URL waiting to receive the responses.|
|Offload timeout seconds||Determines the timeout for offloading responses to a Consumer. This governs the amount of time Tachyon will allow for the Consumer to respond to its offloading before logging an error in the Tachyon log file.|
|Use Windows Authentication|
Determines whether or not the Tachyon will try and use Windows Authentication when attempting to offload responses to a Consumer.
For example, when Tachyon retrieves data back from a question asked by a Consumer, it can be configured to offload the responses directly to the Consumer. To do that Tachyon has to make a connection. Checking the Use Windows Authentication checkbox configures Tachyon to use Windows Authentication for that connection. Otherwise, if Use Windows Authentication is not checked, Tachyon assumes there is no authentication/anonymous authentication.
|Enabled||This checkbox specifies whether the Consumer is enabled or not. In order for a Consumer to work with Tachyon, its Consumer entry on the Consumers page must be enabled.|
