  • Your machine needs to satisfy qTest's recommended hardware requirements
  • qTest Manager 8.4.4 has been deployed 
  • qTest Sessions 3.0.9 has been deployed
  • Access to the server where you install qTest Manager's Database, connect to your Manager database and create a schema for Insights.

$ CREATE SCHEMA insights;

apps = [‘insights’]
postgres {
  host = '<IP address of Postgres server>'
  port = <Postgres port>
    auth {
user = ‘postgres’ 
    pass = '<password of postgres user>'
    db {
    qtest = '<qTest Manager database>'
    session = '<Sessions database>'
Insights {
//Insights HTTP Port, make sure the port is not being used by other application
  httpport = <qTest Insights port>
//Insights Admin Port, make sure the port is not being used by other application
  adminport = <qTest Insights admin port>
etl {
//path to directory where you installed jsvc on Linux, example: /user/bin/jsvc
jsvc = '<path to jsvc>'
