Things to configure after the first start

When you run Upsource for the first time, it will open Configuration Wizard in your default browser. First you can specify System settings

  • Base URL - you might want to change the default value if:
    • your server has several DNS interfaces and you wish to make Upsource accessible by a particular DNS interface;
    • you have set up Upsource to work behind reverse or terminating HTTP proxy (see Proxy configuration) - in this case the new value should match the base URL you’ve set before.
  • Application Listen Port - you can change the default port that Upsource will use for HTTP communications if the suggested port is or expected to be taken.
  • Location of system directories (Under Advanced Settings)

Click Next to proceed to User management settings

Here you have to choose to set up Upsource with either build-in Hub or external (standalone) Hub. If you are going to integrate with the YouTrack issue tracker, select External Hub. Otherwise you may choose Build-in Hub.

Please note: Prior to selecting External Hub, you should first install and start your external Hub service.

If Build-in Hub selected:

  • Create admin login and password - specify login name and password for your administrator account. (You’ll be able to reset your password if you ever forget it.)
  • Send usage statistics anonymously - keep this option checked to help us make Upsource better. We never share collected data with any third party.

If External Hub selected:

  • Enter your Hub URL and verify the connection.

Click Next to proceed to Licenses where you can keep the default free license or change it to a different one:

Click Finish when you’re done.

Upsource will open its welcome page (http://your-host-name:port_for_upsource/bundle/starting/) which will also be opened upon any consequent startup.
