Installation and use of the Repository Browser

3018421

Question / Problem: 

How can I install install and use the Repository Browser?

Answer / Solution: 

The Repository Browser is on your big KTA ZIP installation file:
"ZIPFILE\TotalAgility\RepositoryBrowser\RepositoryBrowser.msi"
Make sure you extract it with 7-zip and verify it is not blocked (right-click - properties - unblock).

You can install it anywhere - it does not require KTA on the machine.
After installing, you have to modify its .config file to point to your KTA Database.

The file should be here:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Kofax\TotalAgility Repository Browser\Kofax.TotalAgility.RepositoryBrowser.exe.config"

To point to the KTA Database, backup the file and change this string accordingly:
<property name="connection.connection_string">Data Source=YOUR_KTA_SQL_SERVER_NAME;Initial Catalog=TotalAgility_Documents;Integrated Security=True;Connect Timeout=30;Encrypt=False;TrustServerCertificate=False</property>

Once you have it up and running, you can perform searches for documents or folders in the KTA Documents Database.
This is useful when you do have suspended / taken jobs (for example: in a Validation Activity) and you wish to see the content of its documents or folders.
Pickup the document or folder variable from the job you are troubleshooting - Jobs - Find - Variables.
Once found, the document or folder, you can examine their properties, see their fields. You can see and examine images and they properties.
You can also export to disk the folder or the document examined (right-click - Export to disk). This would give you access to the xDoc for further examination - helpful for Transformation Server activities. At the image level, you can save the source and examine renditions, if available.
