Before you install

Before installing PulseUno, review the following requirements and considerations:

Support matrix Verify that your system meets the hardware and software requirements. For details, see the Support Matrix.

Verify that you have proper permissions to perform the installation:

  • Windows: local administrative privileges
  • Linux: root access

Dimensions CM and StarTeam: The PulseUno installer installs a standalone instance of PulseUno. To install PulseUno on a machine with a Dimensions CM or StarTeam server, use the Dimensions CM or StarTeam server installer.

Deployment Automation: To install PulseUno on a system that hosts a Deployment Automation server, contact Support.


  • Oracle
  • PostgreSQL
  • MS SQL (Windows only)

Before installing PulseUno, set up a database.

The PulseUno installer creates a pulse database user and/or schema. You just need to supply a database super user account that will create the pulse database user and/or schema, and allow TCP/IP network access and username/password authentication.

For details about an Oracle database, see the Oracle help.

For details about an MS SQL server, see the Microsoft help.

For details about PostgreSQL, see the PostgreSQL help.

Windows only: An embedded PostgreSQL 13 database is bundled with the installer. If you decide to use it, you don’t need to prepare a database before the installation.

Git command line

If you plan to synchronize Git branches with Dimensions CM streams, you need to install the Git command line before installing PulseUno.

Install a Git command-line tool on the same system where you are installing the PulseUno Git server. This way, the installer will automatically configure the Git server to use the Git command line.
