This section illustrates how to configure IIS (Internet Information Services) as a prerequisite of a production environment when running Automation Server on a .NET platform and in a Windows Server 2012 R2 (using IIS version 8.5).
The IIS is installed as a server role.
For more information about this prerequisite, refer to Enabling IIS and its features.
To install or review that you have properly installed the IIS server (with all its components required by Bizagi), follow these steps:
1. Locate the Server Manager panel.
This administrative option is available by right-clicking on Computer and selecting Manage, or directly from the quick-access icons:
You require administrator's privileges for IIS installation.
2. In the Server Manager window, locate the Dashboard quick start options and use Add Roles and features.
This will launch a wizard to guide you through setting up your IIS.
When you initially use this wizard to install IIS, it will show you a Before-You-Begin page. At this point, verify the following:
•The administrator account has a strong password.
•The network settings, such as IP addresses, are configured.
•The latest security updates from Windows Update are installed.
You may skip this page the next time you install IIS.
3. Select Role-based or feature-based installation and click Next.
4. Select the Web Server from the server pool, to select the local host for the installation and addition of the roles required.
5. Select Web Server (IIS) as the server roles you will install.
When asked for required features, select Add features to activate those required by the IIS server.
Mark the required features as shown:
Click Next and review the general information presented about the Web server role. Click Next.
6. Confirm the installation selections made through the wizard and click Finish to start the installation:
Finally, a window will show you the installed Web Server IIS and summary for its role's services.
There is an "Export configuration settings" option. This lets you download this configuration as an XML file for PowerShell use in another machine.
Click Close when you are done.
Verifying IIS configuration
Once IIS is installed and to make sure that you can create projects, open IIS Manager by using the inet command or by locating Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager access from the Administrative tools folder (Control Panel -> System and Security).
Make sure that you have you Web site under the listed Sites of your server, and that it is enabled and in a tunning status (you may rely on the default site named Default Web Site or a different one of your choice):
