Many people are starting to use the RestAPI for SSP to help configure their SSP servers. However, the syntax can sometimes be a little tricky. When using XML formatted input for the RestAPI scripts/programs, the XML entries need to be in alphabetical order in order to use XSD validation. Prior to that, an unknown XML element in the XML would just be ignored. Now it is validated by default. Because of the complexity of SSP's XMLs, the XSD cannot be changed to allow the values to be in any order (XSD... [More]

When building an SLC one step is to create a schedule defining when the SLC is in effect. When you get to the Create SLC Schedule you will be presented with a dropdown with two choices, Calendar Schedule and Duration Schedule. If you select Calendar Schedule two of the parameters are the Normal Start Range (NSR) and the Normal End Range (NER). In a majority of cases you only need to set on of these parameters. The use of an SLC is to determine if an event did or did not happen during a specific time period. Both the NSR... [More]
