In part 1 of this tutorial, you'll learn what FME Server is, tour the web user interface, and run a sample workspace.
Welcome to FME Server! This tutorial will give you hands-on experience with the basics of FME Server. It is comprised of 4 parts:
- Take a Tour of the Web Interface (current article)
If you’d like to follow along with your own FME Server, here are the prerequisites:
a) FME Server must be installed
b) FME Server must be licensed
See FME Server Licensing Walk-Through if you have not yet licensed FME Server.
c) Add Sample Workspaces
Navigate to the Programs Menu in Windows, find FME Server, then click on Add Sample Workspaces.
d) Enable Installed Services
Navigate to the Programs Menu in Windows, find FME Server, then click on Enable Installed Services.
e) FME Desktop must be installed and licensed
a) Open Web Interface
You can open the web user interface in a couple of different ways:
b) Log In
For the purpose of this tutorial, log in with the default author/author username/password that gets set up with the installation:
username = author
password = author
c) Take a Tour
The 3 large buttons represent the most common tasks carried out with FME Server:
Run Workspace, Manage Schedules, Manage Notifications
Beneath this are links to favourite workspaces, last published, and last run workspaces. These are all empty right now because this is a fresh installation.
Towards the bottom are links to upcoming webinars, blogs and training, and the bottom left is where you’ll find information about the build and version of your FME Server.
Scroll to the top and check out the menu options:
Run one of the sample workspaces from the web user interface:
a) Click on the Run Workspace button.
This is where we can select a workspace already published to FME Server, and run it.
b) Choose the Repository the workspace is in
You can think of a repository as a folder in which to store related items. Currently there is just a Samples repository, so select it.
c) Choose which Workspace to Run
The Workspace drop down lists the workspaces within the Samples repository. Select austinApartments.fmw.
d) Select the Service with which to run the workspace
This one was registered with 4 services...we’ll discuss services some more when we publish and register our own workspace. For now, select the Data Streaming service.
e) Click on Run Workspace
The workspace is executed by FME, and the result, a kmz file in this case, is downloaded.
