Sitecore Connector

Upgrading to Version 1.4x

We made some key changes to the Sitecore Connector in version 1.4 so to upgrade from an earlier version, you will need to follow some additional steps.

  1. You need to update your database schema for version 1.4. Connect to your database via your preferred tool and run the following script:

    SQL

    ALTER TABLE [dbo].[TranslationQueue] ADD [LastError] [nvarchar](500) NULL
    GO


    If you don’t know your database endpoint, you can find it in your Sitecore configuration at /Website/App_Config/ConnectionStrings.config. The database endpoint is in the SitecoreLocalization entry.

  2. Install 3 packages:
    • Smartling.Connector.ver.1.4.0.0.zip: Skip all items when installer will ask you. In this case you will preserve your Smartling configuration
    • Smartling.Connector.Remote.ver.1.4.0.0.zip: Restore value of Server Url property in /sitecore/system/Modules/Smartling Connector/Context right after installation
    • Smartling.Connector.LinkFieldTranslator.ver.1.4.0.0.zip

The Sitecore connector should be ready to continue translation.
