This module allows you to extend the ALVAO Asset Management with:

Technical requirements

  • ALVAO Asset Management


After activating the module on the server, run ALVAO Server Setup, which will install the necessary components.

Manual installation

Install ALVAO Custom Apps WebService on the server:

  1. Make sure the machine where you want to run ALVAO Custom Apps WebService has an IIS intranet server installed with a version that meets the technical requirements.
  2. We recommend creating a custom application pool on IIS ALVAO AppPool .NET 4.0 This step is not strictly necessary to run the application, but it significantly affects the loading speed of the WebApp.
  3. Before installation, make sure you have ASP .NET v4.8 or higher installed.
  4. (Optional) Before installation, setting up the Windows Integrated Authentication is strongly recommended:
    1. In IIS Manager, click on the application AlvaoWebApp and then click Authentication.
    2. Make sure Windows Authentication is enabled (and all others are disabled).
      Authentication must also be enabled on the website where the application is installed.
    3. Open the web.config file located in the ALVAO WebApp folder in a text editor.
    4. Make sure that in the configuration/system.web attribute is authentication mode is set to Windows.
    5. In the IIS root, set Feature delegation (Feature Delegation) - enable read or write in the following authentication modes: Anonymous and Windows.
    This authentication method cannot be used to authenticate users who are not imported from Active Directory.
    For this authentication method to work properly, you need to have Alvao server address on the intranet.
  5. Log in as administrator and run the AlvaoCustomAppsWebService.msi installation package. If you have a problem with UAC, run the installation from the command line using msiexec -i AlvaoCustomAppsWebService.msi.
  6. When installing, select the ALVAO AppPool .NET 4.0 application pool. If you did not create this AppPool in step 2, select .NET v4.5.
  7. The installer creates a folder on disk (<InetPub>\wwwroot\AlvaoCustomAppsWebService) and also a virtual directory in IIS (AlvaoCustomAppsWebService).
  8. After installation, you must configure the web.config file in the ALVAO Custom Apps WebService folder (open the file in Notepad).
  9. In the line:
      <add name="Db" connectionString="Data Source=localhost;Initial Catalog=Alvao;Integrated Security=True;Current Language=Czech;TrustServerCertificate=True"  providerName="Microsoft.Data.SqlClient" />

    set the connection to the database. The connection string has the same format as in the web.config file in the ALVAO WebApp settings.
  10. In the database, set the application pool identity with the public, db_datareader, db_datawriter, db_ddladmin, db_executor permissions.
  11. In ALVAO WebApp - Administration - Settings - Web services - Custom Apps WebService (URL) enter the path to the ALVAO Custom Apps WebService folder. For example: http://server/AlvaoCustomAppsWebService.
ALVAO Custom Apps WebService has Windows authentication set up.
