The Connector uses two Sitecore scheduled tasks:
- The Upload Schedule task uploads files for translation to the Clay Tablet Platform.
- The Download Schedule task downloads translated files from the Clay Tablet Platform.
Running these scheduled tasks has minimal impact on the performance of the Clay Tablet Platform server, because if there are no active jobs when they contact the server, they just wait until the next scheduled invocation before contacting the server again. If the network is unavailable temporarily, these tasks log error messages on each invocation.
The default polling interval for these scheduled tasks is 2 minutes.
You can configure the following aspects of these scheduled tasks:
- You can modify the polling interval of the Upload Schedule and Download Schedule tasks. For detailed instructions, see Modifying the Polling Interval of the Scheduled Tasks.
- You can configure the Upload Schedule task to automatically send out all items in Translation Queue at regular intervals, as a single translation job. For detailed instructions, see Configuring the Connector to Send All Items in the Queue for Translation.
Note: For instructions on configuring how the Upload Schedule creates translation jobs when automatically sending out items in the Translation Queue, see Using Custom Logic to Configure how the Upload Schedule Creates Jobs when Automatically Sending Out Items from the Translation Queue.
