    Introduction

    JasperReports Server bundled installers install bundled Apache Tomcat, PostgreSQL servers, and PhantomJS.  Normally, these installers run in either graphical or text-based menu mode.  However, it's possible to install JasperReports Server silently using an options file.  This install mode can be particularly helpful when used as part of another product installation.

    Step-by-Step instructions

    1. Open a text editor and add the following lines:

      mode=unattended
      installer-language=en
      jasperLicenseAccepted=yes
      prefix={path to install location e.g. C:\jrs63 or /opt/jrs63}
      
    2. Save the file as options.txt or whatever file you wish and close the text editor

    3. Open a command line window and browse to where the installer has been saved

    4. Run the following command:

      Windows:

      jasperreports-server-{version}-windows-x64-installer.exe --optionfile options.txt
      

      Linux:

      ./jasperreports-server-{version}-linux-x64-installer.run --optionfile options.txt
      

    Result

    JasperReports Server will install silently then exit.  The server will need to be started separately.  To do so, execute the ctlscript.sh or ctlscript.bin file with the start option.


    Additional Information

    To see a list of available options, run the installer from the command line with the --help option.

    An example with additional options may look as follows:

    mode=unattended
    installer-language=en
    jasperLicenseAccepted=yes
    prefix={path to install location e.g. C:\jrs63 or /opt/jrs63}
    postgres_installation_type=bundled
    postgres_locale=en
    postgres_port=5432
    postgres_password=<postgres password>
    tomcat_installation_type=bundled
    tomcat_server_port=8080
    tomcat_server_shutdown_port=8005
    tomcat_server_ajp_port=8009
    phantomjs_installation_type=bundled
    jasperserver_install_sampledata=1

    In case the following message appears on linux: sudo: ./TIB_js-jrs_7.1.1_linux_x86_64.run: command not found

    execute sudo chmod +x  ./TIB_js-jrs_7.1.1_linux_x86_64.run and then run the file
