Overview
To use the telemetry, you must install on a computer:
Notes:
  • The computer where the telemetry server is installed must be a Web server. A Web server (IIS, Apache, ...) must be installed on the computer.
  • The HFSQL server and the telemetry server can be installed on two different computers.
  • The telemetry server can be installed on a Web server that is hosting a WEBDEV application server.
  • Caution: The telemetry does not operate with the non-transparent proxies.

Installing a HFSQL server

Installing the HFSQL server

The setup program of the HFSQL server is available on the DVD of WINDEV or WINDEV Mobile. If you do not own this DVD, the setup of HFSQL server is also available from our site (http://www.windev.com/st/telec/index.html).
To install the HFSQL server from the DVD of WINDEV/WINDEV Mobile:
  1. Start the setup program of WINDEV/WINDEV Mobile.
  2. Select "Install the HFSQL C/S server".
  3. Then, select "Install a HFSQL Client/Server server".
  4. Accept the license agreement.
  5. Choose the platform ("For Windows on this computer").
  6. If HFSQL servers are already installed on the current computer, select "Install a new server".
  7. Select the setup directory and specify the server name and port. The port 4900 will be used by default.
  8. Install (if necessary) the HFSQL Control Center if this one is not found or accessible from your computer.
  9. The setup is performed. By default, to connect to the server in administrator mode, you must use the "admin" user without password.
    Note: For security reasons, don't forget to change the administrator password.

Creating a specific account

To use the telemetry, a specific user account must be created. The telemetry data will be saved in the telemetry database via this account.
To create a specific user account for the telemetry:
  1. Start the HFSQL Control Center.
  2. In the home window, click "Connect to a HFSQL server".
  3. Specify the characteristics of the HFSQL server that was installed and validate.
  4. In the right section of the screen, select the "Users" tab. Only the "Admin" user exists at this time.
  5. To create a new user, in the ribbon, in the "Users" group, click "New". The screen used to define the characteristics of a user is displayed.
  6. Give a name and password to the new user and validate.
  7. By default, no rights are granted to this user.

Creating a database and defining the rights

To use the telemetry, a database must be created. This database will be used to store the data.
To create the telemetry database:
  1. In the HFSQL Control Center, select the name of the server.
  2. Display the popup menu and select "New database".
  3. In the window that is displayed, specify the name of the database and validate.
  4. Select the new database in the tree structure on the left.
  5. Display the popup menu and select "Managing rights".
  6. In the window that is displayed, select the user that was created beforehand and grant all the rights to him.
  7. Validate.
The HFSQL server is configured for the telemetry.
Installing a telemetry server
The telemetry server is a WEBDEV application server intended for the telemetry. To install the telemetry server:
  1. Start the setup pack of reserved server (WX210PACKRSRV.exe file available in the "Install\WDServerR" sub-directory of WINDEV or WINDEV Mobile).
  2. Validate the license.
  3. Select the module to install: "Install the telemetry server (WD Analytics)". Go to the next step.
  4. Select (if necessary) the version of the reserved application server to install (32 or 64 bits). Go to the next step.
  5. Select the setup directory. Go to the next step.
  6. Specify the parameters for connecting to the HFSQL server that was installed beforehand:
    • Name of HFSQL Server,
    • Port,
    • Database specific to the telemetry that was created on the server.
    • User and associated password. This user is the user who was created to use the telemetry.
  7. Go to the next step.
  8. Specify the first day of the week. This information will be used to perform statistical calculations on a weekly basis.
  9. Validate.
  10. The wizard checks whether a Web server is found in the setup computer.
    • If no Web server is installed on the setup computer, the wizard proposes to install one and to configure it in order to use the telemetry server.
    • If a Web server is found on the setup computer, the wizard proposes to configure it in order to use the telemetry server.
  11. At the end of setup, the wizard indicate the telemetry login and password. Copy and store this information. These login and password must be used to connect to the telemetry server from WINDEV.
  12. End the wizard.
Note: If the database name is incorrect, you have the ability to restart the setup of the telemetry server in order to specify the proper database name while keeping the identifiers.
To install the telemetry server:
  1. Start the setup pack of reserved server (WX250PACKRSRV.exe file available in the "Install\WDServerR" sub-directory of WINDEV).
  2. Validate the license.
  3. Select the module to install: "Install the telemetry server (WD Analytics)".
    Go to the next step.
  4. Select (if necessary) the version of the reserved application server to install (32 or 64 bits). Go to the next step.
  5. Select the setup directory.
    Go to the next step.
  6. Specify the characteristics of the HFSQL server used for the telemetry (installed beforehand):
    • Name of HFSQL Server,
    • Port.
    • Name and password of administrator of HFSQL server. This information is required to automatically configure the telemetry database and the associated user.
  7. Test the connection to check your parameters.
  8. Indicate the parameters specific to the database used by the telemetry:
    • the name of database intended for the telemetry (TLM by default).
    • the name of the user who is administrator of telemetry and his password.
  9. This database and its user will be automatically created.
  10. Go to the next step.
  11. Specify the first day of the week. This information will be used to perform statistical calculations on a weekly basis.
  12. Validate.
  13. The wizard checks whether a Web server is found in the setup computer.
    • If no Web server is installed on the setup computer, the wizard proposes to install one and to configure it in order to use the telemetry server.
    • If a Web server is found on the setup computer, the wizard proposes to configure it in order to use the telemetry server.
  14. At the end of setup, the wizard indicate the telemetry login and password. Copy and store this information. These login and password must be used to connect to the telemetry server from WINDEV or WINDEV Mobile.
  15. End the wizard.
Notes:
  • If the database name is incorrect, you have the ability to restart the setup of the telemetry server in order to specify the proper database name while keeping the identifiers.
  • A telemetry server in version 25 is compatible with Windows applications compiled with earlier versions (21, ...).
Minimum version required
  • Version 21
