Installing Optional Features

Several features require additional configuration before they can be used.

Google Maps

Important

Exago’s Google Maps wizard uses the Google Maps API, which requires a paid license for commercial use. You must acquire a Google Maps API license in order to enable this feature.

There are additional steps needed in order to enable the new Google Maps wizard introduced in v2016.3.

  1. Download and install the Google Maps Polygon Database for free from our support site.
  2. Create a new directory inside Exago’s installation path named MapCache
  3. Extract the polygon database into the MapCache directory.
  4. If Remote Execution is in use, the polygon database must also be extracted into a mapCache folder inside of each Scheduler Service’s /bin directory.
  5. Give the web server full permissions to read the mapCache directory.
    For Windows:

    1. Right click on the folder and click Properties.
    2. In the security tab click Edit then Add.
    3. Enter iis_iusrs then click OK.
    4. In the Permissions for Config window, select the IIS_IUSRS that was just created and check Allow Full Control. Click OK.

    For Linux:

    1. chown $apacheUserID MapCache
    2. chmod -R u+wr MapCache

Exago’s Google Maps wizard uses the Google Maps API, which requires a paid license for commercial use. You must acquire a Google Maps API license in order to enable this feature. Please see the the Maps and Places > Geocoding sections of the Google Maps Pricing Table for details. You must obtain a Google Maps Javascript API key and a Google Maps Geocoding API key, either as part of the same license, or separate.

Note

Licensing fees are subject to change by Google.

Note

For help with API keys, see Google API Console Help.

To install the license file:

  1. Toggle General > Feature/UI Settings > Advanced Report Designer Settings > Show Google Maps Wizard in the Admin Console to True.
  2. Place your unlimited license key or Google Maps JavaScript API key in the Admin Console: General > Feature/UI Settings > Advanced Report Designer Settings > Google Map Key (unlimited or JS API restricted).
  3. If you used a Google Maps JavaScript API limited key in the previous setting, place your Google Maps Geocoding API key in General > Feature/UI Settings > Advanced Report Designer Settings > Google Map Key (optional Geocode API restricted).

Legacy Maps (GeoCharts)

The GeoCharts feature present since v2013.2 has an additional requirement for use if you are enabling it for the first time, or if you are implementing your application under a new domain name.

Our mapping features use the Google Maps API. Historically, this was a free solution. However, in June 2016, Google began to require paid licenses for commercial usage.

If you had GeoCharts enabled prior to June 2016, and you have not since changed the domain name of your application, this section does not affect you because you have been grandfathered in.

If you are a new user in need of mapping, we strongly suggest implementing the new Google Maps feature instead of legacy GeoCharts.

If you intend to implement GeoCharts under a new domain name, then you must acquire a Google Maps API License in order to use this feature. See Google’s Pricing & Plans page for details. Your license must include the Google Maps Javascript API.

Note

For help with API keys, see Google’s API Console Help.

To install a legacy GeoCharts license file, place the license key in the General > Feature/UI Settings > Advanced Report Designer Settings > GeoChart Map Key (optional) setting of the Admin Console.
