Altova FlowForce Server 2019

FlowForce Server is a cross-platform software solution used to automate tasks on Windows, Linux, and macOS servers and workstations through a Web interface.


FlowForce Server integrates with other Altova server products (MapForce Server, StyleVision Server, and both flavours of Raptor XML Server) and automates their functions, such as executing a MapForce mapping, executing a StyleVision transformation, or validating an XML or XBRL file. With FlowForce Sever you can also create and automate common server tasks, such as sending emails, managing files on the local system or network, managing files through a File Transfer Protocol (FTP), running shell scripts, and others.


The FlowForce Server documentation is organized into the following main sections:


FlowForce Server Overview
Installation on Linux, macOS, and Windows
Configuring the Server
Managing User Access
Working with Jobs
The FlowForce Expression Language
MapForce Server and StyleVision Server Integration
Command Line Interface
Built-in Functions
Expression Functions
Job Configuration Examples


Click to expand/CollapseGoogle Chrome's Same-Origin Policy (SOP)

When viewing the Help that is delivered with your Altova product in Google's Chrome browser, you might find (i) that you cannot collapse the expanded TOC in the left-hand frame, and (ii) that image miniatures cannot be expanded to full-size images by clicking on the miniature. These limitations occur because of the Same-Origin Policy (SOP) restrictions that Chrome applies. If you face these restrictions, you have the following options:


Disable Chrome's SOP. You can do this by opening Chrome from the command line with the argument --disable-web-security. (If, after starting Chrome with web security disabled, you close the browser and restart it normally (that is, without the argument), then it will restart with web security enabled.) Note, however, that using this argument will disable the browser's web security and thereby compromise your organization's security. So this is a risky workaround, and we do not recommend it. It is better to go with one of the next two options.
Use a browser with a SOP that allows (i) the collapsing and expanding of TOC items, and (ii) the expanding of image miniatures. For example, Firefox.
Use Chrome with these SOP restriction. The Help's functionality is not affected in any other way besides the restrictions mentioned above.
