Using an In-house Live Forms server

...

...

We strongly recommend the installation video.

 

  1. Download and install the
    Frevvoproduct
     server. Instructions for your a Windows platform can be found on the Installation Instructions page. Click here for information about other platforms.
  2. Setup your In-house
    Frevvoproduct
     server for Confluence. You must now create a tenant specifically  specifically for Confluence. Details can be found in the Installation Video. 
  3. Click, Installing and Configuring the add-on to complete the installation. 

...

Considerations:
  1. If you change the value of the session timeout in the Confluence tenant created in 
    Frevvoproduct
    and the server is restarted, forms/flows in Confluence become inaccessible until the tenant is edited or the server is restarted once again.

...

  1. If you create a user in Confluence, with the role of frevvo.designer, and then try to login to the Confluence tenant on the
    Frevvoproduct
    server with this id, an "Invalid username/password" error will display. A password reset on the
    Frevvoproduct
    server will have to be performed to reset the random password generated when the user was created in Confluence. 

Installing and Configuring the Confluence add-on

...

  • Download the
    Frevvoproduct
     Confluence v3.x compatible add-on here.
  • Download the
    Frevvoproduct
    Confluence v4.0 - v4.2 compatible add-on here

...

This is the scheme, host & port on which the forms server is running. The add-on (installed in Confluence) must be able to access the

Frevvoproduct
 server. For example, the URL for
Frevvoproduct
'  SaaS service is: http://cf.frevvo.com OR https://cf.frevvo.com if you want to use SSL. The URL to your in-house installation might be: http://frevvo.mycompany.com:8082/.

...

This feature is available in Live Forms v4.1.4 and higher. You can specify a Confluence group here. If specified, users belonging to this group can edit forms and flows already added to existing Confluence pages belonging to any other user. If this is left blank, edit access is restricted to the original designer/owner of the form/flow. Also, users Users belonging to this group can also view/delete submissions for forms and flows belonging to any other user. Note that the editor also needs to have "designer" privileges for this. 


This group does not give users permission to create new Confluence pages and add existing forms/flows created by another designer. The only forms you will see in the add existing form dropdown are the forms created by you.

Confluence Server URL

Info

This is reserved for future use.

...

In some configurations, the externally visible URL to the forms server may be different from the above URL, i.e. the URL that a browser outside the firewall uses to access

Frevvoproduct
 could be different from the URL that the add-on (inside the firewall) uses to access
Frevvoproduct
.  If that's the case, enter the externally visible URL in this configuration parameter. Your users must be able to access the
Frevvoproduct
 server from their browsers via this URL. When the  form, workflow or task list is rendered in the browser, this URL will be used to access
Frevvoproduct
. This URL defaults to the above Forms Server URL if not specified.

Info

Frevvo supports confluence over SSL. If Confluence is running over ssl, configuring this URL, helps you must configure the Form Server External URL in the Confluence add-on to your

Frevvoproduct
Server url. This URL will help to render forms/flows on the Confluence pages properly.  You also need to configure the 'Confluence Server Url' in the tenant you have set up specifically for Confluence. In the
Frevvoproduct
Server, edit the tenant and set the 'Confluence Server Url' to your HTTPS Confluence site. See Manage Tenants for more information.
With both of these settings configured, you should be able to access/create forms on Confluence pages.

Enable Debugging

If checked, the add-on will print debugging information to Confluence pages. In addition, for forms and flows, you can also specify a parameter to the form macro that is generated in Confluence pages: _norender:true. If this parameter is present, the macro will simply print debugging information but will not actually render the form.

...

If you get this error adding a flow to a Confluence page you an can solve this with a simple browser setting.
