Installing the UNIFY​Broker Web Component


The UNIFYBroker Web Component is an optional install. Its purpose is to install the web component of UNIFYBroker without the service, to allow for a multi-tiered architecture. A multi-tiered architecture may be important in improving security or performance across the solution. Installation of the UNIFYBroker Web Component is as simple as running the UNIFYBroker Web.msi installer package.

This installer encompasses all the components required to host an UNIFYBroker web engine.


The UNIFYBroker Web Component is dependent on an UNIFYBroker Service installation.

WARNING: The installation is designed to be located on a different machine than the UNIFYBroker service. To use IIS on the same machine as the service, instead follow Configuring UNIFYBroker for use with IIS.
TIP: For instructions on the installation of the UNIFYBroker service, see Installing the UNIFYBroker Service
TIP: For instructions on disabling the embedded web server, see the configuration options on Configuring for use with IIS
