    • Specify the Working Directory as a path to the Genesys Pulse installation folder.
    • Specify the Command Line as pulse_startup.bat if Genesys Pulse is deployed on Windows or ./pulse_startup.sh if Genesys Pulse is deployed on Linux.
  3. Install Genesys Pulse:
    • Copy the Genesys Pulse IP to the Genesys Pulse host.
    • Run the setup.exe (Windows) or install.sh (Linux) installation file.

      For Upload a Package, select the zipped file that contains the Genesys Pulse Installation Package (Genesys Pulse IP). The zip file should have in its root the files from the IP folder (such as ip_description.xml and read_me.html).
    • For Upload an XML template, select the XML Template file (Pulse.xml from the Templates Installation Package directory).
    • For Upload an APD template, select the APD Template file (Pulse.apd from Templates Installation Package directory).
    • Click Finish.
  2. Create Genesys Pulse Application from Template:
    • In GAX, go to Environment > Application templates> New and Import Genesys Pulse Application Template. (The Pulse.apd file from the Templates Installation Package directory).

      • specify the Host where Genesys Pulse will be deployed
      • specify the Working Directory as a path to the Genesys Pulse installation folder
      • specify the Command Line as pulse_startup.bat if Genesys Pulse is deployed on Windows or ./pulse_startup.sh if Genesys Pulse is deployed on Linux.
  3. Deploy the Genesys Pulse Installation Package:
    • Click on the Genesys Pulse Installation Package to open the Properties tab.
      Important
      The Genesys Pulse Installation Package status should be complete.
    • Click on the related icon and choose Install to open the IP Deployment Wizard.
    • Fill required fields:
      • Select a host where Genesys Pulse is deployed and the Genesys Pulse Application object.
      • Set the InstallPath to the same value as the Working Directory specified in the Genesys Pulse Application object.

More Installation Steps

Important
Begin with Install Genesys Pulse from the Installation Package (for GAX starting with release 9.0.1) or Install Genesys Pulse via GAX IP Deployment Wizard (for GAX prior to release 9.0.1) and then proceed with the following steps.
  1. In the Genesys Pulse installation folder, create the conf folder with the pulse.properties file:
    • host= <Configuration Server host>
    • backup_host=<Backup Configuration Server host>(optional)
    • port= <Configuration Server port>
    • backup_port=<Backup Configuration Server port> (optional)
    • app=<Genesys Pulse application name>
    • http_port = <http port for Genesys Pulse to start on>
    • root_url = < the root URL to access Genesys Pulse> (optional, default value is /pulse)
  2. Navigate to Configuration > Environment > Application, select the Genesys Pulse Application, Permissions tab and configure the SYSTEM account to have Read, Update, and Execute permissions.
  3. Optional: Configure options in the [pulse] section on the Application Options tab for the Genesys Pulse Application object:
    Important
    During startup, Genesys Pulse looks for all options that are required for its operation and adds them if they are not explicitly configured. If a required option is either not configured or specifies an invalid option value, Genesys Pulse uses the option’s default value.
  4. Create a new Database Access Point (DAP), which is necessary for connectivity to the Genesys Pulse database:
    • Enter a Database Name.
    • On the General tab, set the Connection Type to JDBC and specify the following field values:
      • Role = Main
      • Debug = false
      • JDBC Query Timeout: 15
      • Case Conversion: any
    • On the Ports tab, change the value of the default port to the value of your RDBMS port.
    • (Optional). A connection to the Genesys Pulse database can be specified as the JDBC URL in the jdbc_url option.
      Tip
      If you need to use virtual ip/host(s) to access Genesys Pulse Database and you do not want to create Host objects for them, then use any existing host on the Server Info tab but configure the correct ip/host through the jdbc_url option in your DAP object.
  5. Add the Database Access Point to the connections of your Genesys Pulse Application object.
  6. Add the Genesys Pulse Collector Application object to the connections of your Genesys Pulse Application object.
  7. For a High Availability (HA) deployment:
    Important
    All Genesys Pulse instances must use the same database.
  8. From the user account created when you prepared the Genesys Pulse database, execute the SQL statements in the appropriate initialization script deployed during installation (scripts folder)—either:
    • pulse_init_mssql.sql
    • pulse_init_oracle.sql
    • pulse_init_postgres.sql
  9. Start all Genesys Pulse instances.
  10. To access Genesys Pulse (see the Logging In page for more information), enter the following URL in the address bar of the browser:
    http://<Host name>:<http_port>/<root_url>/
    where:
    • <Host name> is the name of the computer on which you installed Genesys Pulse.
    • <http_port> is the port number defined in the the pulse.properties file.
    • <root_url> is the URL defined in the the pulse.properties file.
