Install WebWallboard

Prerequisites

Note WebWallboard is not compatible with Internet Explorer, consider using Edge.

Before starting the installation, make sure the following preparations are.

 

Installation

  1. Unzip the package on the Anywhere365 server

  2. Run PowerShell as administrator

  3. Open the folder location of the package from your PowerShell window

  4. Start the install script:

    PS [WebWallboard directory]> .\InstallWebWallboard.ps1

  5. Follow the instructions in PowerShell:

    1. Enter the dashboard service base url

      (e.g. http://sub.yourdomain.net/dashboardservice/ )

    2. Enter the attendant service base url

      (e.g. http://sub.yourdomain.net/attendantservice/ )

    3. Enter the ucc name

    4. Select the correct number of the IIS site to install the web application

    5. Select the correct number of the existing application pool

      Note Usually the "UCCServiceApplicationAppPool" is used.

    6. Type yes or y to proceed with the install

  6. Make sure the Dashboard service and the Attendant service allow calls from the Webwallboard, to prevent CORS issues. Check the web.config file of the corresponding service, and check if the key “AllowedOrigins” contains * (for all domains are allowed) or the specific protocol and FQDNA fully qualified domain name (FQDN), sometimes also referred as an absolute domain name, is a domain name that specifies its exact location in the tree hierarchy of the Domain Name System (DNS). (e.g. http://sub.yourdomain.com). The latter option can be semicolon separated for multiple entries.

Example appsettings in web.config:

<appSettings>

<add key="AllowedOrigins" value="http://sub.yourdomain.net;https://sub.yourdomain.net" />

</appSettings>

Webwallboard should be available when all these steps are completed.
