multi-rig_configuration

As of 2019-02-13 OpenKJ Songbook now supports multi-rig type setups.

Note! If you only run at one venue at a time, this is not necessary.

The default account type only supports 1 concurrent hosting system and one library that's common to all venues.

If you modify your subscription and add additional system entitlements, you will then be able to use the service with multiple hosting systems at different venues at the same time, each with its own unique songbook library.

On the client side, you will need to make sure you are running the latest stable version of either the OpenKJ hosting software or the OpenKJ standalone Songbook Agent. In the same settings area where you set your API key, there is now a system ID field as well. It will allow you to select the ID (tied to the hosting system license) to use for that particular computer. Once set, your songbook library updates will be specific to that system ID and when you set a venue to accepting it will automatically switch it to use the correct library for your system.

You need to make sure you are using different system IDs for each hosting computer. For example, if you have 4 systems and have purchased 4 entitlements, you will need to set one up on system ID 1, one on system ID 2, one on system ID 3, and finally, one on system ID 4. Additionally, once you have set the system IDs, you will need to update your remote database from each of those systems.

If you inadvertently left a venue set to accepting from another system on a different system ID, you can force it to switch over to use the proper library by toggling accepting off and then back on from the system you'll be using.
