Installing Identity Broker Plus


Installation of Identity Broker Plus is as easy and simple as running the UNIFY Identity Broker Plus.msi installer package. This installer contains everything required for an installation of Identity Broker Plus with the exception of Identity Broker itself, which must be installed separately.

Installing Identity Broker Plus

Installation from the desktop

To begin installation, locate and run the UNIFY Identity Broker Plus v5.1.msi installation package from either Windows Explorer or through command prompt.

The title screen of the installation wizard will be shown.

Read and accept the UNIFY Software License Agreement.

Select either a Standard installation for both service and web files, or IIS installation for web files only.

Configure database settings. If you wish for the installer to attempt to add Identity Broker Plus database components to an existing Identity Broker database, select the Attempt New Install option and enter the required details - the location and name of the SQL server instance and the name of the database to update. If you wish to update the database manually, select the Manual Install option and see Manually Upgrading the Identity Broker Plus Database.

Select the installation location of Identity Broker. The default installation directory is:

C:\Program Files\UNIFY Solutions\Identity Broker\

Begin the installation when ready.

A progress bar will appear showing the progress of the installation. Wait until the installation process is complete.

The installation has completed successfully. Click finish to close the installation window.

Identity Broker Plus has now been installed. Restart the Identity Broker service now.
