Linx Services with dynamic properties


#1

Linx Services can get their properties from static values or Linx Settings. Where we have something like a DirectoryWatch we cannot get the Path value from another resource like a database. It will be useful if a Linx Service can get its properties from a resource that can be specified by the user. It makes it possible for users to manage these values in a manner that makes sense for their situation.

Ideas

  • Make it possible to retrieve Linx Settings from a database.
  • Introduce a LinxServer.Startup event where you can override/set Linx Settings (works like a Linx Process).
  • Introduce a LinxService.Startup event where you can set the Linx Service properties (works like a Linx Process).

Any other suggestions, problems?


#2

Yes, I would like to be able to inspect and perhaps also amend the interval set for timer services while on the Linx server. Is that included in this concept?


#3

Yes, we already have a story in the backlog to allow TimerService properties to point at Settings. You can change Settings on the Linx Server.
