feature request #6352
Add Transmission Engine trigger to Admin menu
From the Admin menu we can now trigger sortindex refresh and cache update.
It would be nice to have a functionality to run the transmission engine from here.
- lowerRank - default: UnknownRank = 5c4d6755-2cf6-44ca-9220-cccf8881700b (default and therefore can be omitted)
- upperRank - default: Kingdom = fbe7109d-66b3-498c-a697-c6c49c686162
- targetAreaLevel - no default but required
- mode: default:
byAreasAndRanks(the other options are not really need for the general user.
One problem might be that it is often a very long running process. So we have to test how the process and the progress monitor reacts an closing the TaxEditor.
The Editor should be prevented from starting a second transmission engine process as long another one is already running. This is already implemented for the according web service which is using the
eu.etaxonomy.cdm.api.service.ProgressMonitorManager. It therefore could make sense to use the web service instead of triggering the engine via the service layer. For example urls see #6338.
