On-Premise Requirements

On-Premise System Requirements

In order to successfully install ItemPath on premise, there are a few requirements:

Hardware Requirements

  • A dedicated machine or virtual machine (preferably Ubuntu Linux)
  • Ubuntu Linux 18 or greater
  • A dual core CPU or greater
  • 4 GB RAM or greater
  • 50GB SSD or greater
  • Outbound Port 80/443 access for remote assistance, monitoring, and support of email outputs
  • A dedicated (not dynamic) IP address for the machine
  • VPN + SSH access to this machine, with a local user with admin permissions

Software Requirements

  • Docker Engine 19 or greater, and Docker Compose 1.22 or greater. For Docker system requirements, go here: https://docs.docker.com/engine...
  • OR Podman 3.4 or greater, with podman-docker, podman-plugins and docker-compose installed.

PowerPick Requirements

In PowerPick, we need the following (your PowerPick integrator can help you with this):

  • The PowerPick Web Services module. This is required if ItemPath will be creating orders (e.g. through the API or with the Order Builder app).
  • A Web Client station. Add a station as a Web client type. Provide us with the Station Name.
  • An ItemPath user. Ideally with Admin-level command rights. Add a user and let us know the username and password.

If you’d like to create a firewall to limit access to your SQL server or IP, you’ll want to whitelist ItemPath’s IP address, available in the ItemPath app.

Preinstallation Checklist

Before being able to install ItemPath, we’ll need a few things first.

  • PowerPick SQL Server username, password, database name, dedicated IP address, and port number (if changed from the default port 1433)
  • PowerPick SQL Server will need to be able to accept remote connections via IP. For more details on how to set this up, go here
  • Remote connection information (VPN, SSH, TeamViewer)
  • Username and password for the machine (ideally with local root access)

PowerPick Global (PPG) Module

  • The PowerPick Web Services module is required when the scope of ItemPath includes creating, allocating, and processing orders.
