Performing a Silent Installation
This topic describes how to install Sisense silently.
You can install Sisense using the command-line interpreter, for example, when you need to run an installation on a remote machine.
You can also customize the installation using variables, for example, install Sisense without the sample dashboards.
To perform a silent installation:
- Download the latest sisense version.
- Open the command line interpreter and type in the installation commands as follows:
- Full installation (without previous user activation)
<Location of downloaded executable file>\SisenseLatestFull.exe -q -username=<> -password=<>
- Full installation (for user already activated by Sisense)
<Location of downloaded executable file>\SisenseLatestFull.exe -q
- Full offline installation (requires a license key from Sisense)
Note: To get an offline license, go to My Account and click GET KEY, or contact your Sisense Success Manager.
After attaining your key, copy and paste it after -offlinelicense= (replacing <offline_license_key> in the example below).
<Location of downloaded executable file>\SisenseLatestFull.exe -q -offlinelicense=<offline_license_key>
- Installation without Sample ElastiCubes and dashboards
<Location of downloaded executable file>\SisenseLatestFull.exe -nosamples -q
- Choosing Sisense Website name and port
<Location of downloaded executable file>\SisenseLatestFull.exe -q -webname=<website_name> -webport=<website_port>
Silent Customized Installations
To define which Sisense components are installed, you can edit the PrismFeature.xml and copy it to “%programData%\sisense”.
If you are using IIS express, download PrismFeature.xml.
If you are using IIS, download PrismFeature.xml.
Note: Create “%programData%\sisense” if it does not exist.
The PrismFeature.xml file contains an XML node named “Feature”.Changing its ‘Selected’ child node value (true/false) determines if the feature is installed or not. For example, in this configuration, the Prism Server Console is installed:
<Name>Prism Server Console</Name>
After editing the XML file, run the installation according to the instructions above.
To uninstall Sisense using the command-line interpreter:
In the command-line interpreter, enter:
<Location of downloaded executable file>\SisenseLatestFull.exe /q /uninstall
