The installation process creates the following folders in the installation folder:
Figure 14: Intellicus Folder Structure
You can start using Intellicus Web-based Reporting Suite immediately after the installation.
If you did not check the “Start Intellicus Service” option at the time of installation (as shown on Figure 13), you can start Report Server and Web Server after installation.
To start Report Server, click Windows Start > All apps > Intellicus > Start Report Server (as shown in Figure 17).
To start Web Server, click Windows Start > All apps > Intellicus > Start Web Server (as shown in Figure 17).

Alternately, run services.msc from Windows. Here you need to start Intellicus Report Server to start the Intellicus services as shown in Figure 16.
Figure 16: Start Intellicus Report Server from Services.msc
The Web Server and Report Server will start automatically whenever the machine is restarted, if the Startup type property of Intellicus Report Server is set to “Automatic”.
You can now check the Web Server and the Report Server status by running Intellicus Service Manager as shown in Figure 17. You can also stop or start the Web and Report servers from Intellicus Service Manager as shown in Figure 17.

What if the Web Server does not start
By default, Intellicus is configured to run on port 8080. The Web Server will not start if this port is used by any other application. To start the Web Server change the port from 8080 to the one that is free.
Changing the port number
Below are the steps on how to change the port number when Jakarta Web Server is used.
The port number information is stored in server.xml file.
Figure 18: Location of server.xml
- Open server.xml in a text editor.
- Change the value of Connector port to a number that is free.
- Save the changes.
Figure 19: Changing the port number
Enable HTTPS Mode
In server.xml, there are connector tags to enable SSL against respective certificate key. You need to configure connector port from server.xml against the respective certificate. Below is a sample code that needs to be un-commented from server.xml to configure such https port:
<Connector port=”8443″ protocol=”org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11NioProtocol”
Restart Web Server after making change to server.xml file.
Configuring standard Tomcat setup
The following minimal customization is required to run Intellicus application on standard setup of Tomcat:
- File Name: <Installed Location>\Jakarta\conf\web.xml
Purpose: Add following settings (marked in bold) to instruct Tomcat to remove unnecessary statements (like comments, new line characters etc.) at the time of compilation. This will reduce the compiled file size and will not throw file size exceed exception during compilation.
Purpose: Add the following settings (marked in bold) to increase the default buffer size of web socket.
This is required to run reports having large data.
- File Name: <Installed Location>\Jakarta\conf\server.xml
Purpose: Add following settings (marked in bold) to enable HTTP compression. This improves transfer speed and bandwidth utilization, which is required to reduce report rendering time.
- It is mandatory to set ‘JRE_HOME’ path pointing to the installed JDK/Java version in your system before running Tomcat.
- Intellicus war file (available in APIs folder) should be placed under /Jakarta/webapps folder.
Starting the Web Interface
You can start using Intellicus Web-based Reporting Suite through its web client (portal). To access the web client, use the following URL:
http://<IP of the portal>/intellicus
For example, if the IP of the portal is 184.108.40.2066 and port is 7000, then the URL would be:
If the port is 8080, then the URL would be:
To access Intellicus from the machine where Web Portal is running, the URL would be:
