KAVart Requirements

KAVart relies of multiple programs in order to function properly. These programs are either normally licensed by a company or are free to install, saving licensing costs on the KAVart Application itself. These programs are Microsoft Excel, Windows Task Scheduler, and the InterSystems ODBC drivers.

  • ODBC or AES license; no actual AES knowledge required

Server Requirements

KAVart runs best on a designated reporting Windows server (either physical or virtual) but can also be run on a standard Windows PC. The recommended server specifications are listed out below. These are the minimum specifications needed to run the KAVart Application.

  • OS: Windows Server 2008 R2 or newer
  • CPU: 1.5 GHz or greater
  • Memory: 1 GB or greater
  • Storage: 5 GB or greater
  • Microsoft Excel 2007 or newer

Cache Requirements

A connection to the cache server is required to retrieve data from the system. This connection is established by utilizing an ODBC connection from the InterSystems ODBC drivers. The ODBC drivers must match the version of the KAVart Application. For example, if the 64 bit version of the KAVart Application is installed then the 64 bit ODBC drivers are needed. Below is a list of information that is needed to establish the ODBC connection. Please note, the Superserver port will need to be opened for "listening" and the Cache User will need to be setup in Security Plus with an identical username and access to the REPORTER and DBMS applications.

  • Cache Version
  • Cache Server IP address
  • Cache Superserver port number
  • Destination UCI
  • Cache Username/Password

Email Requirements

Email notifications can be sent from the KAVart Application to communicate the status of report automation. In order for the KAVart Application to send email notifications, the items below need to be provided.

  • Outbound SMTP server address
  • Outbound port number
  • Email domain name
