Set-up Your Data Connection


Fantastic!  Now that your Bezlio account is set-up, the next step is to connect your account to your data sources inside of your firewall.


Step 1: Set Up Your Data Connections

Within Bezlio, click on the ‘Data’ link in the left-hand navigation bar.  This will load the ‘Data Connections’ panel.

From within here,  click the ‘Add Connection’ button.


Step 2: Obtain Connection ID and Connection Token

On the next screen, fill in the ‘Connection Name’ field with a name that would be meaningful to represent the network you intend to connect to. 

Typically we suggest just making this your company name with no spaces. 

Also on this screen click the radio button for ‘Bezlio Remote Data Broker’ and then press the ‘Add Connection’ button. 

After a few moments you will be returned to the ‘Data Connections’ panel. 

Note the ‘Connection ID’ and ‘Connection Token’.

Step 3: Download Bezlio Remote Data Broker (BRDB)

Next, click the button labeled ‘Download BRDB’ and save the resulting file to a location on your network accessible to where you would like to load Bezlio Remote Data Broker.

Step 4: Install Bezlio Remote Data Broker (BRDB)

From the server where you would like to install Bezlio Remote Data Broker (BRDB), execute the installer downloaded from the previous step and accept all of the defaults. 

You may wish to uncheck the plugins you don’t intend to use during this process or those can be disabled at a later time.

NOTE:  The only dependency to be aware of is that BRDB needs to have .NET Framework version 4.6.1 installed.

Step 5: Start the BRDB Service

Upon completion of the installation, navigate to the ‘Services’ control panel (on modern versions of Windows, click the Start button, type ‘Services’, and click on the icon that results), right-click on the service ‘Bezlio Remote Data Broker’, and press ‘Start’.

Step 6: Configure BRDB

Now open a web browser (Google Chrome recommended) and navigate to http://localhost:3600

When the page loads, click the ‘Maintain’ drop-down and then select ‘Trusted Connections’.

On the ‘Trusted Connections’ screen, press the ‘Add Trusted Connection’ button. 

On this dialog, fill in the ‘Connection ID’ and ‘Connection Token’ as noted on step 2 and click ‘Save Trusted Connection’.
