You can install Sisense using the command-line interpreter, for example, when you need to run an installation on a remote machine.

You can also customize the installation using variables, for example, install Sisense without the sample dashboards.

To perform a silent installation:

  1. Download the latest sisense version.
  2. Open the command line interpreter and type in the installation commands as follows:
  • Full installation (without previous user activation)
    <Location of downloaded executable file>\SisenseLatestFull.exe -q -username=<> -password=<>
  • Full installation (for user already activated by Sisense)
    <Location of downloaded executable file>\SisenseLatestFull.exe -q
  • Full offline installation (requires a license key from Sisense)
    Note: To get an offline license, go to My Account and click GET LICENSE KEY, or contact your Sisense Success Manager.
    After attaining your key, copy and paste it after -offlinelicense= (replacing <offline_license_key> in the example below).

    <Location of downloaded executable file>\SisenseLatestFull.exe -q -offlinelicense=<offline_license_key>
  • Installation without Sample ElastiCubes and dashboards
    <Location of downloaded executable file>\SisenseLatestFull.exe -nosamples -q
  • Choosing Sisense Website name and port
    <Location of downloaded executable file>\SisenseLatestFull.exe -q -webname=<website_name> -webport=<website_port>

Silent Customized Installations

To define which Sisense components are installed, you can edit the PrismFeature.xml and copy it to “%programData%\sisense”.

If you are using IIS express, download PrismFeature.xml.

If you are using IIS, download PrismFeature.xml.

Note: Create “%programData%\sisense” if it does not exist.

The PrismFeature.xml file contains an XML node named “Feature”.Changing its ‘Selected’ child node value (true/false) determines if the feature is installed or not. For example, in this configuration, the Prism Server Console is installed:

<Features>
<Feature>
<Id>PrismServerConsole_Feature</Id>
     <Name>Prism Server Console</Name>
     <Selected>true</Selected>
     <Manual>false</Manual>
     <Selector>CheckBox</Selector>
     <Tests />
</Feature>
</Features>

After editing the XML file, run the installation according to the instructions above.

To uninstall Sisense using the command-line interpreter:

In the command-line interpreter, enter:

<Location of downloaded executable file>\SisenseLatestFull.exe /q  /uninstall
