Brightmetrics Install Guide for MiVB

Adding Brightmetrics for your MiVB environment takes a few steps and we'll document those here below.
The SMDR processor service (Brightmetrics SMDR) is a small utility that is installed on a server with network access to the MiVB server. It listens to the SMDR and ACD Event streams and logs the data to a local database for processing by the Brightmetrics™ MiVB Plugin.
System Requirements:

1. .NET Framework 4.5 or higher.
2. Microsoft SQL Server Local DB 2014 or newer

3. Network access to MiVB servers, including the following TCP ports:

  • SMDR Events: 1752
  • ACD Events: 15373

4. Same timezone as the MiVB servers

5. Confirm that the SDS Form Sharing is enabled. System Properties -> System
Administration -> SDS Form Sharing. This is used to sync the configuration across
the different appliances.

6. In order for us to load configuration data, we will need to have a user authorization
profile created for our agent to access the MiVB server. This can be
accomplished within the MiVB Portal System Administration Tool.

  • Navigate to System Properties>System Administration>User Authorization Profiles.
  • Create a new user authorization profile with System Admin option checked, and the System Admin policy name set to "system".
  • You will enter these credentials into the Data Source Configuration page in Brightmetrics when setting up the data source and agent.
