Upsource 3.5 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. Select Set up:


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 built-in Hub or external (standalone) Hub. If you are going to integrate with the YouTrack issue tracker or TeamCity, you should choose External Hub. Otherwise you may choose Build-in Hub.

If you are going to select External Hub:

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

  • Select External Hub
  • Enter your Hub URL and verify the connection.

If Build-in Hub selected:

  • Enable login as guest—allow guest (non-registered) users to access projects. You'll be able change guest user rights or deny anonymous access altogether later.
