Requirements

Setup user account (installation account)

Used to run the Foundation User Governance installer and deploy the Winshuttle Foundation User Governance .WSP.

The account used to install User Governance should have the same permissions as the account used to install SharePoint.

  • Membership in the Local administrators group on each server on which Winshuttle Foundation User Governance will be installed.
  • SharePoint Farm Administrator.
  • The installation account also requires the SPDataAccess role on every Content Database and Config Database for SharePoint hosting a Winshuttle site.
  • If you are installing to a SQL 2016 database, the installation account requires the following SQL rolesSecurityAdmin, Public, and DBcreator.

SQL Server service account

Used to install the Winshuttle Foundation User Governance database.

Email address

Used as the "From" address for task notifications for Winshuttle Transaction or Winshuttle Query script approvals.

  • An outbound SMTP server
Foundation Web Application and Timer Service Account used to run Web applications and the SharePoint Timer Service.
  • db_owner permission on the User Governance database.

Additional User Governance 12.1 Requirements

SharePoint Web Application

ClosedHelp with this

A SharePoint Web Application is composed of an Internet Information Services (IIS) web site that acts as a logical unit for the site collections that you create. When you create a new web application, you also create a new content database and define the authentication method used to connect to the database.

  • Anonymous Authentication must be enabled

Winshuttle Workflow 12.1 Requirements

Recommendation: Using a Development Server

To minimize the risk of disruption and data loss, Winshuttle strongly recommends installing SharePoint and Winshuttle Workflow on a development (i.e., non-production) server first. Because the development server simulates a server in a real work environment (but operates in isolation), you can create, test, and refine your processes before moving them onto a production server. When you are ready to move to the production server, specify the URL of the production server within Winshuttle Workflow, and publish your workflows and/or forms to that server.

Workflow 12.1 SQL and SharePoint Account Requirements

The following sections include information about how to prepare for your Winshuttle Workflow installation, including system requirements, development server, authentication, and accounts details.

Authentication

Winshuttle Workflow requires authentication to access a database and impersonate a system user with sufficient privileges to access the SharePoint Object Model. This is in addition to normal user authentication during SharePoint login.

To give Winshuttle Workflow the authentication it requires, there are two options:

  • SharePoint Object Model Access, which requires Windows authentication.
  • SQL Server Access, which requires either Windows authentication or SQL Server authentication.

What accounts do I need?

To deploy Winshuttle Workflow, you can provide up to 2 accounts and 1 email address:

  • Workflow Admin Account: Communicates with SharePoint and runs the Workflow Central Administration site. This account is also used to run SVservice.
  • Workflow Database Account: Manages the Workflow database.

The following tables provide a summary of accounts and required permissions.

  • Owner group at the root site
  • Owner group for the site collection that contains Workflow sites

-or-

  • Site Collection Administrator for root site
  • Site collection administrator for the site collection that contains Workflow sites.

Composer 12.1 System Requirements

Winshuttle Composer is an HTML 5, browser-based program that connects to a SharePoint instance where Winshuttle Workflow is installed.

Installation Recommendation: It is recommended that you install Composer in each Winshuttle Environment within your landscape. Minimally, you should have a Non-Production instance and a Production instance of Composer installed.

Supported Browsers

  • To run Composer and develop solutions: IE11, Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox.
  • To run forms created in Composer: IE11, Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox.

Server Requirements

Note: If you use a host header, you will need to create a DNS entry.

  • IIS 7.5 or later
  • .NET 4.5 or later
  • Winshuttle Workflow 10.7 or later
  • Microsoft SharePoint 2016 | 2013

    Note: SharePoint and Winshuttle Workflow are required for publishing forms, but do not need to be installed on the same server where Winshuttle Composer is installed.

LMS Requirements

LMS Version Compatibility

LMS Version

12.x Foundation (bundled version) Winshuttle Studio 12.x
12.1 Standalone version Winshuttle Studio 12.1.x

LMS Server Requirements

Operating System

Windows 2012 server SP 1 (64-bit) or higher

Database

  • MS SQL Server 2012 or higher
  • Minimum database size of 500MB is recommended.

Other software

  • .NET Framework 4.5
  • IIS 7.5 or higher

LMS Account Requirements

The account used to install the LMS should have the following permissions:

  • Administrator permissions on the target system.
  • dbcreator on the SQL server where the LMS database will be created.
  • securityadmin on the SQL server where the LMS database will be created.

Note:

  • If you are using a custom identity (such as an Active Directory user), the custom identity must be a member of  "Log on as a service policy."
  • The Winshuttle Administrator account specified at the end of installation is required to be a Winshuttle Foundation site collection administrator.

IMPORTANT: Registering ASP.NET with IIS

On occasion the latest .ASP version is not registered with the LMS host machine/VM. The Requirements check performed during installation will not detect this. (The installation will still complete successfully, but the LMS site will not be accessible.)

To avoid this, do the following:

  1. Open a command prompt as an administrator.
  2. Change to the directory where the .NET framework is installed (for example, C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319).
  3. Run the following command: aspnet_regiis.exe -iru

    NOTE: If you have already installed the LMS and .ASP.NET was/is not registered with IIS, you will need to register ASP.NET with IIS, and then re-install the LMS.
