Live Forms™ in-house Quick Start Installation Guide: 

The steps below describe the

Frevvoproduct
Tomcat bundle installation on a Windows system.

Prerequisites

The following prerequisites must be satisfied in order to run

Frevvoproduct
in-house.

Return to this page and continue with Download the Bundlewhen the prerequisites are met.

Download the Bundle

  1. Download the Tomcat Bundle from the frevvo Software Downloads Directory.
  2. Unzip the frevvo zip file into a location of your choice: e.g. c:\frevvo. We'll refer to this directory below as <frevvo-home>.

Start the Insight Server

Frevvoproduct
 requires the Insight server for the Reporting feature. The Insight server is included in the tomcat bundle. You should start the Insight server first before starting
Frevvoproduct
. Further configuration is not necessary for the trial period. Follow these steps:

  1. Ensure that you do not have another server running on ports 8082 or 8983
  2. Open a command prompt. Navigate to <frevvo-home>\solr-x.x.x (replace "x.x.x" with your solr version number.)
  3. Type bin\solr.cmd start to start the Insight server. This starts the Insight server in the background, listening on port 8983.



    You will see this message when the Insight server is running:



4. Browse http://<your server:port>/solr to verify the Insight server is running. The <server:port> default values are localhost:8983. Change <your server>  to the server name and <your port> to the port the Insight server is running on if they are different than the defaults. Do not include the angle brackets <>. You will see the Insight server (Solr) dashboard with the current status:



Warning

If you close the Insight server (Solr) startup window, the server will stop running. Leave the window open or set up Live Forms and the Insight Server to run as Windows services.

Start 
Frevvoproduct

  1. Navigate to <frevvo-home>\frevvo and double-click Start frevvo. This starts tomcat on port 8082 with 
    Frevvoproduct
     pre-configured.
  2. Open the

    Frevvoproduct
     home page in a new browser window. e.g. http://localhost:8082/frevvo/web/login.

  3. Login to
    Frevvoproduct
     with username admin@d and password admin.
  4. Enter the license key from the confirmation email in the License Key box when prompted. Click Submit. The
    Frevvoproduct
     login screen will display.

Expand
title Click here if you see an error about Insight Server Configuration when you browse the login URL.
Warning

If you start

Frevvoproduct
before the Insight server, you will see this message when you browse the
Frevvoproduct
login URL. Follow these steps to start the servers in the correct order:

  1. Navigate to your <frevvo-home> directory.
  2. Run the stop-frevvo batch file.
  3. Open a command prompt. Navigate to <frevvo-home>\solr-x.x.x. (Replace "x.x.x" with your solr version number.)
  4. Type bin\solr.cmd start to start the Insight server.
  5. Browse http://<your server:port>/solr to verify the Insight server is running. The <server:port> default values are localhost:8983. Change <your server> to the server name and <your port> to the port the Insight server is running on if they are different than the defaults. Do not include the angle brackets <>.
  6. Navigate to your <frevvo-home> directory.
  7. Run the start-frevvo batch file.

Create a New Tenant

Frevvoproduct
server installation is complete. Next you must create your first tenant.

  1. Click the Manage Tenants link on the page that displays.
  2. There is a single tenant named "d." This is the default tenant.
  3. Click the  icon to create a tenant. Fill in the form and submit it. The new tenant will be created.

We recommend that you do not use the admin user to create your own forms. Add a new user for that purpose.

Add a New User

  1. Click the  icon, to administer the newly created tenant.
  2. On the page that is displayed, click the Manage Users link.
  3. There is a single user (the administrative user you defined when you created the tenant). 
  4. Click the  icon to create a new user. Fill in the form and submit it. Assign Roles to the user as desired. Note that you must assign the frevvo.Designer role to any users who wish to design forms.
  5. Create as many users and assign them roles as needed.
  6. Logout of the admin account.
  7. Congratulations! 
    Frevvoproduct
     is installed and ready for use. You can start building forms and workflows right away.

Start building forms and workflows

  1. Login as one of the newly created users with the frevvo.Designer role by filling in the user@<your tenant> ex: designer@mycompany and the password that you assigned to this user on the Login screen. The page that displays is called the Application Home Page.
  2. If you are new to 
    Frevvoproduct
     and have not created any applications yet, you will see the following Getting Started message. Click the link to navigate to the Evaluation Guide for your version.

  3. You can find examples on creating your own workflows on the Tutorials page. Refer to Getting Started for the next steps to follow to create forms/flows. 

 

Info
titleSecurity Managers

Trial tenants are configured to use the frevvo Default Security Manager by default. Once you have purchased a license for your

Frevvoproduct
tenant, you can switch the Security Manager of your tenant and retain forms/flows, users, roles and submissions.

If you are planning to switch the Security Manager of your tenant to LDAP or SAML Security Managers in the future, make sure the users created in the default security manager tenant have the same user names as the users in your LDAP server or identity provider.

Detailed Installation Instructions

When you have completed the trial period and you are ready to customize your

Frevvoproduct
stylefont-weight:bold
server software, please see the detailed In-house Installation Guide.

Warning

The

Frevvoproduct
bundle includes an HSQL embedded database. If you use the HSQL database during your trial period, you cannot migrate the data (user, roles, applications) automatically from HSQL to your production database. Once your production database is in place, you must manually: 

  1. Create your tenant.
  2. Use csv upload feature to move your users/roles to the tenant.
  3. Download and upload the applications from designer user accounts in the trial database to the designer users in the new database.
