Configuring ServicePulse

ServicePulse connects to and relies on ServiceControl as its data source. For details on ServiceControl 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.

ServicePulse license

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

See also NServiceBus Licensing or licensing ServiceControl for adding a license using the ServiceControl Management app.
