Setup

1. Extract the applet’s files to the folder where you want to host the applet
    We suggest to create the following path and extract it there: C:\Connections\
2. Create an IIS Application Pool
    On the Windows Server machine, launch an instance of PowerShell as Administrator.
    Run the below commands to create the application pool and set its properties.
Import-Module WebAdministration
$applicationPoolNameConnections="Cinchy Connections"
New-WebAppPool -Name $applicationPoolNameConnections
$appPath = "IIS:\AppPools\"+ $applicationPoolNameConnections
$appPool = Get-IISAppPool $applicationPoolNameConnections
$appPool.managedRuntimeVersion = ""
Set-ItemProperty -Path $appPath -Name managedRuntimeVersion $appPool.managedRuntimeVersion
Set-ItemProperty "IIS:\AppPools\$applicationPoolNameConnections" -Name Recycling.periodicRestart.time -Value 0.00:00:00
Set-ItemProperty "IIS:\AppPools\$applicationPoolNameConnections" -Name ProcessModel.idleTimeout -Value 1.05:00:00
3. Import the provided CSVs into their corresponding tables
    C:\Connections\ClientApp\dist\assets\Domains.csv into the table [Cinchy].[Domains]
    C:\Connections\ClientApp\dist\assets\Saved Queries.csv into the table [Cinchy].[Saved Queries]
    C:\Connections\ClientApp\dist\assets\Integrated Clients.csv into the table [Cinchy].[Integrated Clients]
    C:\Connections\ClientApp\dist\assets\Applets.csv into the table [Cinchy].[Applets]
4. In the [Cinchy].[Integrated Clients] table, update the columns “Permitted Login Redirect URLs” and “Permitted Logout Redirect URLs” to “<url>/connections” where Client ID = “cinchy-connections”
5. In the [Cinchy].[Applets] table, update the column “Application Url” to “<url>/connections” on the record where name=“Connections”.
6. Configure the Connections applet
a. Update C:\Connections\appsettings.json properties to match your environment.
    “Client Secret” should match the Guid of the cinchy-connections record in the Integrated Clients table.
    “Url” should be the URL of your Cinchy environment
    “TempDirectory” should be a path pointing to a folder that exists, this will hold all log and error files
b. Update C:\Connections\ClientApp\dist\index.html
    Do a find and replace on “/connections/” and change it to be the path of which you deployed the application to on IIS. This usually requires no change unless you choose to deploy to a different URL path.
c. Update C:\Connections\ClientApp\dist\assets\config.json
    “authority” should be your CinchySSO URL in lowercase (<base-url>/cinchysso)
    “cinchyRootUrl” should be your Cinchy URL (<base-url>/Cinchy)
    “redirectUri” should be this applet’s url (<base-url>/connections)
    “model” should be the model where your data sync configs are. Keep this as “Cinchy” if you don’t know.
    “domain” should be the model where your data sync configs are. Keep this as “Cinchy” if you don’t know.
    “useHttps” should be true if your Cinchy platform is hosted on a secure environment
    “server” should be your Cinchy URL without “http://” or “https://”
7. Create the IIS Application
New-WebApplication -Name connections -Site 'Default Web Site' -PhysicalPath C:\Connections -ApplicationPool 'Cinchy Connections'
