Introduction:

This KB Article details on how one can activate a Registry in an Enterprise Dashboard that is located in a remote server. (DevTest 7.5.x through 9.0.x)

Environment:
DevTest 7.5.x through 9.0.x
Instructions:

To add a registry (DevTest 7.5.x through 9.0.x):

  1. Navigate to the LISA_HOME directory of a newly installed DevTest Server.
  2. Copy _site.properties and rename the copy to site.properties.
  3. Open site.properties for edit. Locate Section 1 - Enterprise Dashboard.
  4. Uncomment the following line and substitute localhost or the valid hostname for somehost. Use the hostname for the CIC Enterprise Dashboard bridge.

    For 8.x and later:

    lisa.enterprisedashboard.service.url=tcp://somehost:2003/EnterpriseDashboard

    For 7.5.x:

    lisa.enterprisedashboard.url=tcp://somehost:2003/EnterpriseDashboard

  5. Save site.properties and exit.
  6. Restart the registry.

To activate CIC for registries older than Release 9.1:

DevTest uses CIC to support pre-9.1 registries with Enterprise Dashboard 9.1 or later. If your registries are Release 9.1 or later, you do not need to activate CIC.

  1. Start Enterprise Dashboard
  2. Start CIC by executing LISA_HOME/bin/EnterpriseDashboardCIC.exe.
  3. Modify the lisa.enterprisedashboard.service.url property for every legacy registry to point to the host where CIC is running: lisa.enterprisedashboard.service.url=tcp://<host>:2003/EnterpriseDashboard
  4. Restart the legacy registry.
  5. Start the DevTest Enterprise Dashboard UI if it is not running.
  6. Confirm that the legacy registry appears on the home page display.
