To modify the port used by ServicePulse, the command line specified in the registry must be updated.
To change it:
- Open Regedit.exe
SYSTEM\ CurrentControlSet\ Services\ Particular. ServicePulse
- Edit the value of
ImagePath. The value contains the full path to the ServicePulse.exe and a command line of the URL to use:
The default value for ImagePath is:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Particular Software\ServicePulse\ServicePulse.Host.exe" --url="http://localhost:9090"
Change the value after
--url= and restart the service.
It may be necessary to reserve the new URL for the account being used to run ServicePulse. For example, to reserve port 9090 for all users:
netsh http add urlacl url=http://+:9090/ user=Everyone
ServicePulse runs as a Windows Service and can be installed more than once on a single machine, with each instance listening on it's own port. This is done by specifying appropriate arguments during installation.
ServicePulse will, by default, attempt to connect to ServiceControl and ServiceControl Monitoring using the URLs
The connections to ServiceControl and ServiceControl Monitoring can be changed using the connections tab in the configuration screen in ServicePulse:
Full URLs must be specified, including scheme and port number. The URLs are persisted in local storage and are also embedded in the query string of ServicePulse URL in the browser address bar, for bookmarking and sharing.
ServicePulse uses connection URLs in the following order:
- The query string of the ServicePulse URL.
- Local storage.
- Default values.
In order to use the query string to specify a ServiceControl instance that ServicePulse should connect to, the browser URL should be of the format:
The query string parameter for
scu= is the URL representation of the ServiceControl API url, and the query string paramater
mu= is the URL of the ServiceControl Monitoring server. In the example above, ServicePulse is connecting to the ServiceControl instance at
http:/ and connecting to a ServiceControl Monitoring instance at
http:/. By providing these connection details in the URL, a browser bookmark or desktop shortcut can be created to instantly open ServicePulse with those connection details or easily share them with other people.
