Post-installation configuration is configuration related to the environment that Essentials runs in. This is mostly web server configuration, but also includes activating the Essentials software and configuring the method for signing in to Essentials Manager.
Essentials includes a desktop application, the Geocortex Post-Installation Configuration tool (the Post Installer), to help you perform the post-installation configuration. You can run the Post Installer at any time to modify the post-installation configuration.
You must run the Post Installer at least once after you install or upgrade Essentials and before you run Manager.
The Post Installer allows you to:
Choose the type of account administrators will use to sign in to Manager—Portal for ArcGIS, ArcGIS Online, or Windows. If you choose ArcGIS, you will use the Post Installer to set up access to Portal for ArcGIS or ArcGIS Online.
Manage how Essentials, Essentials Manager, and Geocortex Identity Server are deployed in Internet Information Services (IIS).
Configure the host names that users and applications will use to access the Essentials web applications.
Register a reverse proxy with Essentials.
Add templates for the Geocortex Viewer for HTML5.
Configure cross-domain support.
Enable Windows Authentication.
