This section describes how to configure Content Provider in your system. After installation is complete, follow the steps below to configure Content Provider:

How to Get Service ID? 

Service ID is an identifier that helps to link your channels at iLangL Cloud with your current Content Provider installation. It’s generated automatically during installation and must never be changed. To get service ID, you need to follow the steps below:

  • Open iLangl.ContentProvider.Service.exe.config, the XML configuration file from the installation folder. Please check the screenshot below for more details on default path, connection settings and place where you can find the Service ID.


  • Find the service ID <add value="[Service Guid]" key="serviceid"/>.

[Service Guid] - is a Service Id that you are looking for.

How to set up Connection Through Connection Alias?

You have an option to specify connections to all your local content datasources in Content Provider configuration file and define aliases for each of them. After that, you can use these aliases instead of connection strings to set up the connection from iLangL Cloud.

There are two ways to set up an alias:

  1. Specify local connection string in the cloud channel.

  2. Specify local connection string in 'Content Provider' configuration file with the specific name and use this name in the cloud channel.

Config file contains comment instruction on how to specify connection:

Local connections:
Yon can add connection settings to this section and use the name like alias in iLangL Cloud.
name - connection alias, must be unique. Identified current connection row and can be used in Cloud like refference to this connection;
server - content datasource server name or IP;
port - server port;
database - database name;
prefix - table prefix in database (example: wp_ for wordpress);
userid - user name;
password(not always required *) - user password;
* In case of using Integrated security for Microsoft SQL Server connection without password can be established under the current windows service account

Changes applied as soon as you save this file.


For example, type in:

<add name="Test Connection" server="localhost" database="MyDatabase" userid="User" password="Password" />

Changes are applied as soon as you save this file as shown below:

Here is an example of MySql Connection:


When you modify the data sources in the config file, changes are applied automatically. There is no need to restart the service.

To check configuration, you need to create new channel and ping the content provider.


If pinging Content Provider does not pass successfully, you will get a timeout error message.

In this case check the following:

  • Make sure the Service ID is correct.
  • Make sure your local service is up and running. Find the service with 'iLangl Content Provider' name and start it.


  • Make sure that startup type is 'Automatic'.

  • Check if you can open from the PC where you're installing the service. If not, modify your firewall settings to open outbound connection for https(443 port) for Content Provider.
