Info

In choosing to manage an on-premise installation of Gold-Vision, you are accepting responsibility for a range of tasks and services which are normally provided as part of our hosting environment.   Although Gold-Vision uses industry-standard technologies, it is a comprehensive product and very likely to contain business-critical information.  In the technical area, this would include

  1. Installing, running and monitoring the 3 main elements of a GV installation
    1. An IIS/.Net web application
    2. A SQL/Server database
    3. A Windows file system document store
  2. Security
    1. Managing user access rights to the system (In conjunction with a GV administrator)
    2. Managing administration access rights for the initial installation and subsequent updates
    3. Managing External access & SSL Certificates
    4. Windows, SQL, and Gold-Vision patching and updating
  3. Backups
    1. Ensure that SQL/Server backups are correctly configured and monitored in line with the chosen transaction logging strategy
    2. Ensure that other elements of the system and backed up and monitored
  4. Capacity Planning
    1. Monitor usage levels and space utilisation for SQL/Server
    2. Monitor disk space usage for the attachment/document storage (Which is expected to grow over time)
  5. Disaster Recovery
    1. Ensure appropriate resources are available off-site in line with the company Disaster Recovery plan

File API Document Storage

Please follow the below recommendations if you require to capture files for the following:

  • Gold-Vision Portal
  • Aster API end points

Info

NOTE The File Api currently only supports windows file system based document stores. SharePoint is NOT supported.

Requirements

  • Setup an additional active directory user to act as the application pool user for the File Api. Capture the full username (domain\user) and password for later steps.
  • Create an additional document store which will be used for storing any files committed to the file ap. This document store should be separate from the primary document store. Ensure a UNC share is setup for this location and capture this for later.
  • Setup a Webdav in IIS to point at the file Api’s document store
  • Setup permissions for the document store. Recommendations for these are:
    • Primary Gold-Vision application pool user – Modify permission
    • File Api application pool user – Modify permission
    • All Gold-Vision users (or a group they all belong to) – read permission
