Configuring the Connector
4 minute read
You configure the Connector for Adobe Experience Manager mostly via the Lionbridge Connector rail, as described below.
Log in to Adobe Experience Manager with the admin account to start configuring the Connector.
Do one of the following:
- In the Touch-Optimized UI of Adobe Experience Manager, click the Tools icon and then click Lionbridge Connector in the Adobe Experience Manager rail. (This opens the Connector in a new browser tab.)
- In the Classic UI of Adobe Experience Manager, scroll down and click Lionbridge Connector in the right pane.
- In your Web browser, navigate to /content/ctctranslation/status.html on your Adobe Experience Manager instance.
The Translation Status page opens.
(This is the Drop-down text)
- In the Lionbridge Connector rail, click Admin Tools.
This displays the Admin Tools menu options. You can perform most Connector configuration changes using these tools.
Note: After the Connector is installed, you must start configuring the Connector by selecting Admin Tools > Configuration. If you do not begin with this, subsequent configuration options will not be available. For details, see Configuring Connector Global Settings.
