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
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.
Enable the Web Server (IIS) role on the Windows Server that are set to host the Management Portal site. This servers DNS name will be the base URL for access to the Management Portal.
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.
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"
After completing the above steps, the CapaInstaller Management Portal is now available
Simply point a webbrowser to http://<server>/ManagementPortal and log in with a user with valid credentials
