Deploying RMsis Application

RMsis installation is essentially in two parts

  • Install RMsis
    • RMsis plugin can be installed through JIRA Universal Plugin Manager.
  • Configure RMsis
    • After installation of RMsis, RMsis tab will appear in Jira menu bar.
    • Login as administrator in JIRA and then click on RMsis menu to configure RMsis.

The entire sequence of installation process is elaborated below:

Step 1 : Install using JIRA Universal Plugin Manager

Step 2 : Configure RMsis Home Page

  • After clicking on RMsis, You will land on RMsis Home Settings page.
  • In this step, RMsis will create RMsis Home directory to store backups, configurations (jdbc, mail etc.), logs etc.
  • Take a note of the information provided and click on next to move to the next step.

Step 3 : Configure RMsis Database

  • In this step, you can configure RMsis database and choose either internal or external database.
  • If you are using RMsis in a production environment, then select "External" and proceed to the next step.
  • If you are evaluating RMsis, you can opt to choose "Internal" and specify database details and proceed to the next step.

Step 3.1 : External Database Configuration

  • At present, RMsis supports MySQL and MSSQL 2005/2008 databases.
  • Create a database in either MySQL/MSSQL and specify database connection details, as shown below

  1. RMsis Database must be different from JIRA Database.
  2. You can use different database types for JIRA and RMsis e.g. MySQL for JIRA and MSSQL for RMsis.

Step 3.2 : Test Database Configuration

  • After filling the database details, you can check the database connection by clicking on TEST CONNECTION button.

Step 4 : Configure Mail

  • You can either disable OR configure your mail settings in this step.
  • The details are shown in the following screens

Step 5 :Server Settings

  • By default RMsis Server will run with http on port 3060 without any proxy settings.
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Reverse Proxy can also be configured for RMsis 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.
After configuring reverse proxy, RMsis will use the proxy base url as: <Proxy Scheme>://<Proxy Host Name>:<Proxy Port>/rm

Step 6 : Deploy RMsis

  • 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 :
