Connecting to a Centerprise Server using Lean Client

How to connect to a Centerprise Server from the Client Startup Screen

After you have successfully installed Centerprise client and server applications, open the client application and you will see the following Server Connection screen on startup.


Enter the Server URI and Port Number to establish the connection.

The server URI will be HTTPS://<IP-address>. IP address will be of the machine where Astera Integration server is installed.

Note: You can get help of your network administrator to get the IP address of the machine where Astera Integration server is installed. Or you can launch the command prompt and type the command ipconfig to get the IP configuration details for the machine and use that information to provide Server URI.


The default port for the secure connection between the Lean client and the Centerprise server is 9260.

If you have connected to any server recently, you can automatically connect to that server by selecting that server from the Recently Used drop-down list.

Click Connect after you have filled out the information required.

The client will now connect to the selected server. You should be able to see the server listed in the Server Explorer tree when the client application opens.

To open Server Explorer go to Server > Server Explorer or use the keyboard shortcut (Ctrl + Alt + E).


The yellow icon with exclamation mark means that the server is not configured. Before you can start working with Centerprise Lean client, you will have to create a repository and configure the server.

Once you have created the repository and configured the server, the next step is to login using your Astera Centerprise account credentials.

You will not be able to design any dataflows or workflows on the Lean client if you haven't logged in to your Astera Centerprise account. The options will be disabled.


How to Login from Lean Client

In the Server Explorer window, click on the icon as shown in the screenshot below.


This will direct you to a login screen where you can provide your user credentials.


If you are using Centerprise 8.0 for the first time, you can login using the default credentials as follows:
Username: admin
Password: Admin123

After you log in, you will see that the options in the Centerprise Lean Client are enabled.



How to Automatically Reconnect on Client Startup

If you don’t want Centerprise to show you the server connection screen every time you run the client application, you can skip that by modifying the settings.

To do that go to Tools > Options > Client Startup and select the Auto Connect to Server option. On enabling the option, Centerprise will store the server details you entered previously and will use those details to automatically reconnect to the server every time you run the application.
