A simple overview of the steps involved in installing the CapaInstaller Self Service Portal
Deploy a Back-end Service
To be able to communicate with CapaInstaller services and to authenticate against an Active Directory, the Self Service Portal relies on the CapaInstaller Back-end Service.
If you already have a Back-end Service Deployed for other purposes, skip this step.
To save time and effort, mark and copy the Back-end service public URL to the clipboard. You will need to enter this URL later when installing the Self Service Portal.
- How to Deploy the Back-end Service
Enable the Web Server
Enable the Web Server (IIS) role on the Windows Server that is set to host the Self Service Portal site. This server's DNS name will be the base URL for access to the Self Service Portal.
Execute the Windows Installer package
Execute the Windows Installer package (CapaInstaller Self Service Portal.msi) for the Self Service Portal.
Locate the file in the share of the root configuration management point e.g. "...\CMPDEV\Resources\Self Service Portal\CapaInstaller Self Service Portal.msi"
Follow the steps in the guided Setup and enter the URL to the relevant Back-end service, when asked.
