Configuring ServicePulse

ServicePulse connects to and relies on ServiceControl and optionally ServiceControl Monitoring as its data source. For details on ServiceControl, ServiceControl Monitoring and ServicePulse configuration options, see:

ServiceControl consumes messages from the Audit queue and stores it temporarily (by default, for 30 days) in its embedded database. Set the message storage timespan by setting automatic expiration for ServiceControl data.

Migrating / Moving

ServicePulse does not contain any message data; it has only a few configuration values stored in the following file \app\js\app.constants.js. By default ServicePulse is installed in C:\Program Files (x86)\Particular Software\ServicePulse.

Run the ServicePulse installer on the new server manually or via scripting powershell or a batch file and copy the \app\js\app.constants.js to the new location.

ServicePulse license

ServicePulse will check the current licensing status by querying the ServiceControl API, located by default at http://localhost:33333/api. If ServicePulse indicates that the license is invalid or has expired, then the license must be updated in ServiceControl.
