In this guide we'll run you through installing qTest Insights 1.11.2 on a Windows Machine

Before you begin

Before you install qTest Insights 1.11.2, make sure following things are done:

  • 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 as following instructions:

Connect qTest DB using postgres user

C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\9.5\bin>psql -h [Your_Postgres_server_address] -U postgres -W [Your_qTest_DBName]
Password for user postgres: //enter your password here

Create Insights schema (use the schema name "insights")

create schema insights;

Install qTest Insights 1.11.2

1. Download qTest Insights installation package 

Download qtestctl-3.0 package here

2. Extract the package

Extract the package, access the directory "qtestctl" 

3. Modify the configure file 

Open the file \qtestctl\qtest.config file, modify following section only

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>
}

 

4. Install and Start

Open the console on your machine (run as Administrator role), change the current path to qtestctl directory and run following command to let Insights run as service

 C:\[path_to_qtestctl]>install.bat

Start

 C:\[path_to_qtestctl]>qtestctl.bat start

That's everything and you now have qTest Insights being installed and started.

 

NOTE:

For some reason, if you want to stop the server. Open CMD (Run as Administrator role)

 C:\[path_to_qtestctl]>qtestctl.bat stop

For some reason, you want to uninstall qTest Insights. Open CMD (Run as Administrator role)

 C:\[path_to_qtestctl]>uninstall.bat 

 

Now, you need to connect it to your qTest Manager, access to your qTest Insights and follow steps in the section "Set up qTest Insights"
