Please note that RMsis 2.x DC server will be deployed on the JIRA DC node from which you are performing the installation. However, it can be accessed from any node after the installation.

The entire sequence of the installation process is elaborated below:

Step 5 :Server Settings

  • By default RMsis 2.x DC Server will be configured with http on port 3060 without any proxy settings. In order to deploy RMsis 2.x DC on JIRA DC, you will have to configure and enable Reverse Proxy.  
    • A detailed description for configuring RMsis 2.x DC with JIRA DC using reverse proxy is available here:
    • Please configure your reverse proxy and apply the changes before proceeding further.
  • User has an option to specify the Minimum and Maximum memory used by the JVM. 256 MB and 512 MB are the minimum acceptable limits here.

  • Specify server scheme:
    • This should be similar to your JIRA setup.
    • If you are running JIRA on http, choose http for RMsis as well.
    • If you are running JIRA on https, choose https for RMsis and configure certificate details:
  • To run RMsis Server on https, select the option https from "Specify RMsis Server scheme". 
  • After selecting https, RMsis will ask for "Key Alias", "Keystore File" and "Keystore Password", where
    • Keystore Type: The type of keystore file to be used for the server certificate. Tomcat operates only on JKSPKCS11 or PKCS12 format keystores.
    • Key Alias:The alias used for the server certificate in the keystore.
    • Keystore File: The pathname of the keystore file where you have stored the server certificate to be loaded.
    • Keystore Password:The password used to access the specified keystore file.
  • Configure reverse proxy for RMsis 2.x DC Server by checking the Enable Reverse Proxy Settings.
  • RMsis will ask for "Proxy Scheme", "Proxy Host Name" and "Proxy Port", where
    • Proxy Scheme: The scheme on which the proxy server is running, can be either http or https.
    • Proxy Host Name: The host name or IP address of the proxy server. 
    • Proxy Port: The port number, on which the proxy server is running.
  • Click on Save button.
After configuring reverse proxy, RMsis will use the proxy base url as: <Proxy Scheme>://<Proxy Host Name>:<Proxy Port>/rm
Note : When RMsis is configured using reverse proxy, additional command line arguments for reverse proxy scheme, hostname, and port will be displayed with RMsis process.

Step 6 : Deploy RMsis 2.x DC

  • In this step, RMsis plugin will install RMsis application with an embedded Tomcat Server.

  • Please wait for some time (It will take one to two minutes). After RMsis server startup, the screen will show :

  • Congratulations !!! Now RMsis 2.x DC server is running successfully,
  • Click on FINISH button to complete the setup process.
  • Subsequently, you will be automatically redirected to the project selection and license activation page.

Select at least one project and click on Submit. The project selected here will be available in RMsis for use. We recommend selecting a few projects as more projects can be activated later. This will reduce the time required to complete initial sync, especially for huge installations.

Generate the license key using the system code displayed in the page and insert here to begin using RMsis.
