The Serial Listener listens for data via specified serial device
On the Basic tab you can specify the implementation type.
To enable the Serial Config tab click on the Open Config button
The Advanced tab allows you to specify whether or not you should only run the Listener when it is triggered externally, how many elements should be serialized and whether or not to also scan sub-folders.
Also you can set:
Initialize on trigger only: If enabled, the Listener doesn’t start up until a trigger initializes it.
Allow command-line invocation: If enabled, the listener can be invoked using the CLI client application.
Restart on listening error: If enabled, the listener will be restarted after an error occurs.
FIFO Queue Name: The FIFO field enables a “First In, First Out” queuing mechanism between Listeners and Transports. If a “FIFO Queue Name” is provided, that name will be used as a key for a queue Transactions & will be pushed into before reaching a transport. They’ll be ordered in this queue according to when the Listener created them.
FIFO Queue Delay: It is the interval between updates/checks against that queue. Providing a queue name guarantees that a given Transport sends transactions in the same order the Listener created them in.
Transaction Logging – This tab allows us to enable transaction events logging. That data can be logged by a TransactionEventListener.
The Transaction Logging Enable checkbox allows transaction events originating from this listener to be logged by a TransactionEventListener.
Log Transaction Data – if enabled, logs transaction data body.
Log Transaction Data Base64 – if enabled, logs transaction data body as Base64.
Log Transaction Attribute – if enabled, logs transaction attributes.
Log All Attributes: if enable, no attributes will be filtered
Allowed Attributes: attributes which are allowed to be logged
On the Serial Config tab you can specify:
Serial Port Descriptor: serial/comm port to listen for data on
Baud Rate: baud rate of listening port
Data Bits: number of data bits in received serial port event
Stop Bits: stop bit configuration for serial port event
Parity: parity bit configuration for serial port event
Flow Control: flow control configuration for serial port event
Listening Method: Available (reads data from port as it becomes available) or Packet (reads data once packet size in bytes is reached)
Packet Size: size, in bytes, of received packets.
