Business Analyst Server post installation

Available with Business Analyst license.

The Business Analyst Server post installation registers the Business Analyst Server object extensions on ArcGIS Server and allows the configuration of Business Analyst Server settings.

After you complete your Business Analyst Server setup, the post installation dialog box below should automatically appear. If it does not, you can initiate the process by navigating to Start > All Programs > ArcGIS > Business Analyst Server 10.6.1 > Business Analyst Server Post Install.

  1. In the Configure Portal dialog box select the type of installation. Click Next.
    • Typical Federated with Portal will allow for leveraging new capabilities at 10.6.1 such as configuring on-premises Geoenrichment as a utility service in Portal and installing the Business Analyst web app on premises while still supporting legacy methods of Business Analyst Server. A Service with the standard name DefaultMap will be published.
    • Typical standalone will publish the standard DefaultMap service with the legacy Business Analyst Server methods.
    • Custom will publish a typical standalone service with the option to manually configure Business Analyst settings.
