Infrastructure

You will be hosting Fonto Content Quality within your own infrastructure. Fonto releases the application as both a Docker image and as a self-contained deployment (SCD).

Proxy & security

Fonto Content Quality needs a proxy endpoint to be implemented within the CMS. This endpoint needs to proxy all its requests to the app.

Since the editor is hosted & served by the CMS, you are able to leverage the already existing HTTP security within your proxy endpoint implementation.

The documentation for the proxy endpoint can be found in our API documentation.

Best practices

Place Fonto Content Quality behind a firewall and make sure only incoming requests from the CMS are allowed.

When blocking outbound traffic, make sure to add exclusions for any annotator that needs to access external resources. For example, the annotators LanguageToolAnnotator, HttpApiAnnotator and DictionaryAnnotator (using an httpSource) can be configured with a remote resource.

Use the health API (/api/health) to periodically check for a 200 OK response indicating that Fonto Content Quality is reachable.
