Install Insight Discovery agents

How to install Insight Discovery agents

To use Insight Discovery agents, you first must download the Insight Discovery software package and extract the contents, then configure the agent using the Optional Agent settings, and then run the local executable.

If you are currently running a firewall, you must ensure that you can accept connections from the inbound port 51337 to use Insight Discovery agents.

Insight Discovery agents transfer information between themselves and Insight Discovery. This data is AES-128 encrypted. For each transfer, both tools will exchange a session key for the encryption.

  1. Download Insight Discovery from the Atlassian Marketplace.

  2. Create a directory to hold the tool. Please note that Insight Discovery Tool must be able to both read and write data within this directory. 

    1. For Windows users, we recommend creating a new directory in C:\Program Files.

    2. For Unix users, we recommend creating a new directory in /opt/.

  3. Extract all of the files from the Insight Discovery package into your directory.

  4. Within the Insight Discovery directory, you can find the Discovery_Agent_Setup.msi installer package. Run the installation file.
