This article will outline, in a few steps, how to use the cloud-hosted ThinScale Platform during your product trial.


There are a few steps that need to be performed beforehand, in order to use this platform.


Step 1 - You will need to request a trial license here, which will require you to register on the ThinScale Portal.

You simply need to click the link provided here, or hit download trial on the homepage of ThinScale.com and choose a product.


This will bring you to “My ThinScale” where you have the option to log in or register to the portal. 


You will need to register if you have not done so already. Simply enter your credentials where appropriate, assign your password and hit register. 


Once successfully registered a confirmation email will be sent to you. You will need to activate your account first. 


Once successfully verified you will be able to see your product downloads.




Step 2 - Click "Start Trial" and check your email for more information. You will receive an activation email and another one containing the cloud-hosted trial account details needed for step 3. 



In Product Downloads, select "Management Platform" from the dropdown list, click "Download" to download the ThinScale Management Console and install it.

Step by step installation can be found here.


Keep in mind, if you're using our Cloud Infrastructure, then you only need to install the Management Console component. 

 

Otherwise, both the Management Server and Console components are required if an on-prem infrastructure is utilized.


Note: versioning number might be different from the one displayed above


Step 3 - Once installed, launch the Management Console and use the credentials provided in the email.




Step 4 - Please select your desired product from the list, click "Download" and install it. (Please use "Related Articles" for more information about step by step clients installation).

To connect the device into the newly installed Management Console, use the credential provided in the same email.


Note: versioning number might be different from the one displayed above



Step 5 - Once successfully installed, the client will appear in the Management Console. 


You are now set.
