Create FlexRule Server Configuration File

◷ Reading Time: 3 minutes

FlexRule Server requires configuration files for each agent and master instance. These configuration files contain settings to run the server such as database credentials, master/agent host data, and encryption keys.

There are two types of configuration files:

  • Agent Configuration File: FlexRule.Server.ExecAgent.exe.config
  • Master Configuration File: FlexRule.Server.Master.exe.config

The default locations of these files:

  • Agent Configuration File:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\FlexRule\Server\ <server version> \ExecAgent\FlexRule.Server.ExecAgent.exe.config
  • Master Configuration File:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\FlexRule\Server\<server version>\Master\FlexRule.Server.Master.exe.config

How to create the configuration files

Configuration files can be created using the CLI commands or using the command generator.

You should create the configuration files separately for each master/agent instance.

Create the Configuration Files using the CLI Commands

  • Open a command prompt in administrator mode.
  • Navigate to the Master/ Agent folder
    e.g. cd C:\Program Files (x86)\FlexRule\Server\< server version >\Master
  • Run the following command to create the configuration file.
    FRS.exe config --new [master | agent]

    e.g. To create a config file in master, FRS.exe config --new master
  • Once you create the configuration file, you can run the commands to update the file with your server settings.
