calling export as a service

Postby Scott » Tue Feb 13, 2007 10:16 pm


Am I able export a journal article or issue by calling the OJS export plugin as a service? For example if I wanted to obtain the journal XML as part of a workflow, if I currently use the URL (e.g. http://ojs-local.anu.edu.au/index.php/h ... ortIssue/6)
this obvously won't work due to permission restrictions. Is there a way to get around this (e.g. by passing some auth details) or how would I go about this?

Hi Scott,

There is another category of plugin called the gateway category; this is intended for use as a service. There are two plugins currently shipping in that category: the Google Scholar plugin and the Resolver plugin. The best way to make an export plugin run as a service is to write a simple gateway plugin as a wrapper for it; look at the READMEs and the code in each gateway plugin's directory for more information.

Yes, did a quick test and having export as a gateway plugin works a treat. Cheers.
