What Packages do I need?

When you’ve navigated to the Download page after logging into your Inversoft account you’ll be presented with several packages to download.

Review the following information to understand which packages you need to download. If your target platform is Linux, using the RPM or DEB packages is preferred and provides the simplest installation process. Only ZIP files are provided for Windows and Mac OS X.

Backend Downloads

The Passport Backend is the web service that handles all API calls and provides the web based management interface to Passport. You will always need to download this package since it is the core component of Passport.

Search Engine Downloads

The Search Engine package contains the Elastic Search service that Passport uses to index and provide ability to search for users.

Database Downloads

The database package contains the Passport schema and migration scripts that Inversoft provides to support version upgrades when database changes were made. In most cases, you will not need to use this package. Instead, Passport Backend will enter Maintenance Mode when it is started and this will automatically create the database or upgrade it. If you need to perform unattended installs or upgrades of Passport, you will need to download this package for the schema and migration SQL scripts. You can review the Advanced Installation portion of the Install Passport Backend section to learn more about unattended installations and upgrades.
