A simple overview of the steps involved in installing and enabling access to the CapaInstaller Management Portal
The Management Portal relies on the following software
Deploy a Back-end Service
To be able to authenticate against an Active Directory, the Management Portal relies on the CapaInstaller Back-end Service.
If you already have a Back-end Service Deployed for other purposes, skip this step.
- 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 Management Portal site. This server's DNS name will be the base URL for access to the Management Portal.
Enable Security and add Trustee
Enabling Security and adding a Trustee from Active Directory is done under System Administration in the CapaInstaller Console.
In this example, we add the Active Directory group "Supporters" to the default "Supporters" profile in CapaInstaller.
Members of this AD group will now inherit the Access permissions for the profile.
However the security module only grants access to Management Portal, there is no graduation of access to Management Portal. Either you have access or not.
Execute the Windows Installer package
Execute the Windows Installer package (CapaInstaller Management Portal.msi) for the Management Portal.
Locate the file in the share of the root configuration management point e.g. "...\CMPDEV\Resources\Management Portal\CapaInstaller Management Portal.msi"
Configure Database access
- To configure access to the CapaInstaller Database insert the Database server URL and the Database name
- Enter the SQL Server Database login that is used for access to the CapaInstaller Database
