We automatically load encrypted data from RWDs using Symphonie Data Retriever with the following steps, and we were hoping to be able to repeat this with RLDs and SymphoniePRO Desktop:
User creates a site file with encryption password When a new RWD file comes in, open file with SDR command line interface and extract logger serial number (SDR auto matches to the site file and uses stored encryption password) Append serial number to file name (serial numbers are unique, site numbers are not, so we're making sure to have unique filenames via serial+site number) Send file down the chain to be recognized by its serial+site number and parsed to the correct site in our SQL-based system
Since we have files coming in from a lot of different loggers and sources, we need a way to create unique names for the files. Without the command line version of SymphoniePRO automatically matching to a site file, it makes it programatically quite difficult to determine which site file and encryption password belong to each incoming RLD file.
Sorry for that long explanation, but hopefully it makes sense in what we're trying to do. It sounds like it isn't currently possible to operate like this with the command line version of SymPRO Desktop, so unless there are plans to develop this functionality or some sort of workaround, we're going to have to get creative on our end.
