ServiceBus360 Installation

This section explains how to install and configure ServiceBus360 in a virtual machine running on Windows 7/Windows 8/Windows 8.1/Windows 10/Windows Server 2012/Windows Server 2012 R2 or Windows Server 2016. 

  1. Open the 'Command Prompt' in your server machine.
  2. Navigate to the location where the MSI file is saved and execute it. Please run the MSI from an Administrator Command Prompt.
  3. In the Welcome to ServiceBus360 Setup Wizard screen, click ‘Next’ to continue.
  4. Read the End User License Agreement and select ‘I accept the terms in the License Agreement’ to accept the license agreement. Click 'Next'.
  5. In the Custom Setup screen, you can select a valid location to save ServiceBus360 on your computer. When you do this, also make sure you change the Website and Windows service component information as changing one will not automatically change the other. Once ready, click 'Next' for the final installation verification step.
  6. In the Prerequisite Checks screen, check whether all the prerequisites have been verified and a green tick mark is placed next to every item. If something is wrong, please cancel the setup, correct the errors, and rerun the setup. If everything is correct, click 'Next' to proceed to the next step.
  7. In the Information required for creating ServiceBus360 Database screen page, specify the SQL Server Name and Database name. You have the option to test whether the connection to the database is successful. (As a best practice, leave this section with the default values). You can install ServiceBus360 with Azure database. In case of using an Azure database, select SQL Server Authentication option under Authentication Mode and enter the Username and Password. Click 'Next' to proceed to the next screen.
  8. In the IIS Virtual Directory Settings page, select the IIS website where you want to create the virtual directory. Enter the application pool settings such as Name, username, and password. Once you have entered the information, click 'Next' to proceed further. Make sure the user is a part of the local groups.
  9. Review the information and click ‘Install’ to start the installation process. Once the installation is complete (it takes about 1-2 minutes), click 'Finish' to complete the process.
  10. ServiceBus360 will be installed successfully and the application can be accessed at : http://<yourVMName>/ServiceBus360. Just one more step to get started, now configure ServiceBus360 with your Azure AD details and click 'Save Configuration'.
