Configuring the Upload and Download Scheduled Tasks

The Connector uses two Sitecore scheduled tasks:

  • The Upload Schedule task uploads files for translation to the Content API Platform.
  • The Download Schedule task downloads translated files from the Content API Platform.

Running these scheduled tasks has minimal impact on the performance of the Content API 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:
