Upsource 2.5 Help

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.

If Build-in Hub selected:

  • Create admin login and password—specify login name and password for your administrator account (Login:admin and password:admin are offered by default). 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.
  • Enter your Hub URL and verify the connection.


Click Finish when you're done.
