Changing status on a failed proxy
on Feb 22, 2013 at 5:35:11 pm

I need some help in having Worker Node change the Proxy Status of an item if it Fails to create the proxy.

I currently have it set to create a proxy when Proxy Status is changed to Make Proxy and then change the status to Proxy Created after it finishes.
That works just fine, but if for some reason Worker Node fails to create the proxy the status stays as Make Proxy.
Is there a way to have it change the status to None if it fails to make the proxy file?

Thanks!

I'd assume that if the job fails that the action would stop.

I have seen it do this however where it finishes the action even if part of it can't complete.

I'd like to hear from Squarebox on this one.

The action does stop (and turns red in Worker Node), but I'd like to have it change the proxy status back to "None" when that happens.
As of right now I have to manually find that file and change the proxy status whenever this happens.

I sent an email to our rep.

Once I hear back I'll post the answer in here.

Per our rep there is not a way to do this as of right now.
He recommended to just send an e-mail on failure.

This is exactly the reason that Squarebox gave us the command line interface and the ability to fire outside scripts from the Worker gui.

While I'm sorry you couldn't get your action through the gui, at least they've given us an alternate way to perform actions.

Most systems either don't have a way to fire an external action, or require programming knowledge to do even the most basic actions.

It looks like I'm going to need to spend time learning shell scripting.
It doesn't seem too difficult: just time consuming.

As Bryson suggests, you should be able to do this by executing the command line to set the status to None (to indicate that an attempt was made to create the proxy) before starting the transcode, then updating it to Proxy Created on successful completion. One of the variables you can pass in to the command line is $I the database object id of the clip.

That CLI trick is nice, Rolf.

We're actually working on some new transcoding workflows that write back to CatDV whether they pass or fail. Stay tuned to this space...
