The UiPath Installation and Upgrade Guide

Silent Install

Overview


Install Test Manager silently on your machine through the command-line. For this option, you need to download and open a command-line to run the UiPath Test Manager installation kit. Alternatively, if you execute through PowerShell, you can call the installation package using .\UiPathTestManager.msi.

Make sure that your environment is ready, by meeting the hardware and software requirements.

🚧

Important

The APPPOOL_IDENTITY_TYPE and DB_AUTHENTICATION_MODE commands are case sensitive.

Commands


The following section lists the available command-line parameters, including options and default values.

Command

Description

INSTALLDIR (Optional)

WEBSITE_PORT (Optional) :grey-exclamation:

The port you want to use to enable the communication between the machine and Test Manager. If not specified, the default value is set to 443 to enable HTTPS. Since Orchestrator is using the same port, you need to specify a different one, if you have both components installed on the same machine.

CERTIFICATE_SUBJECT (Optional) :grey-exclamation:

The name of the SSL certificate you want to use to secure connections with Test Manager. If not specified, the full machine name is used as default.
If you have multiple certificates with the same subject, you need to specify the thumbprint from Certificate Manager Tool.

PORT_DO_VALIDATE (Optional)

Enables you to select whether the website port availability validation is performed or not. Set to 1 to perform validation. Otherwise, set to 0 if you do not want to perform validation.

PORT_FIREWALL (Optional)

Enables you to select if the firewall rules are automatically added for this port. Set to 1 to create firewall rules. Otherwise, set to 0 if you do not want to set firewall rules.

APPPOOL_IDENTITY_TYPE :grey-exclamation:

The type of application pool you are using for Test Manager. You can use one of the following parameters:
SpecificUser - Select this option to run the Test Manager website under an existing Windows or Domain Identity. You need to fill in the Username and Password fields;
