How to Launch an Operator Station Using a URI Link
When ABBYY FineReader Server 14 is installed, a URI scheme named "frs14:" is registered. This scheme allows Verification and Indexing Stations to be launched and configured directly from a browser. This may be required when integrating interactive ABBYY FineReader Server workflows with the user's working environment (e.g. with a web application).
When receiving a document for which an interactive stage is enabled, the user's working environment will generate a link for launching the Verification or Indexing Station. Clicking this link will open the respective station, which will connect to the server specified in the URI. The user will then be able to select and open the document.
Note. The Verification or Indexing Station must be installed locally.
Example of using a URI link
- frs14://VerificationStation/ – This link will launch the Verification Station.
- frs14://IndexingStation/ – This link will launch the Indexing Station.
You can also specify the address of the server hosting ABBYY FineReader Server to which the operator station should connect when it is launched by the user. The following is an example for connecting to localhost:
Note. If no server address is specified, the operator station will connect to the localhost server or to the most recent server.
Using the command line
An operator station can also be launched from the command line. The server address should be passed in the "ServerLocation" parameter. For example:
- OperatorStation.exe /StationMode:"Verification" /ServerLocation:"localhost" – This command will launch the Verification Station.
- OperatorStation.exe /StationMode:"Indexing" /ServerLocation:"localhost" – This command will launch the Indexing Station.
