Job Manager is available for installation on site or as a new hosted subscription service through Workgroups.com. Hosted services are quick to implement and start as low as $39 per user, per month (plus server fees). Sign up for service now.
An intelligent wizard automatically configures the installation procedure based on your Job Manager license and operating system. Components required by the installer are now downloaded dynamically from the US, Europe or Asia...all based on the installer's location.
Configuration of Job Manager is made as easy as it can be. Not only can it automatically detect most of the required settings, a number of in-place tests ensure that the settings you choose will work correctly.
Built-in SMTP Server
Administrators now have a choice of using their own SMTP server or a new built-in SMTP server to send email. Using the built-in SMTP Server provides administrators with the benefit of simplifying setup, the ability to offload email operations from their main mail server and the ability to quickly set up test systems with no corporate IT support.
Use the new all-in-one Server Configurator to create new databases, change the application family of existing databases, configure reporting services and email notifications, update license certificates and more.
Desktop Application Deployment Page
Using just a standard web browser, users can automatically download, install and log in.
Minimal Server Requirements
Job Manager server components can run on Windows 7, Windows Vista Business Edition or even Windows XP (see system requirements for specifics). Because of this, developers can usually set up testing and prototyping systems right on their desktop computers.
A simplified licensing manager allows administrators to manage their licenses as a single certificate instead of as multiple serial numbers. An “In-Use” view shows currently licensed capacity and real-time use.
Microsoft Windows and SQL Server
Use current versions of 32 and 64-bit Microsoft Windows and SQL Server:
- SQL Server 2008 (including Express Edition)
- SQL Server 2005 (including Express Edition)
- Windows Server 2008
- Windows Server 2003
- Windows 7
- Windows Vista
- Windows XP
Built-in LDAP Authentication
LDAP support is now built-in to Job Manager so you can use your corporate LDAP/Active Directory server to authenticate users' sign in.
Desktop applications use HTTP or HTTPS network protocol to communicate with the server. This allows them to efficiently communicate over the Internet and through firewalls, just like a web browser.
