Product Specifications

2) Unpacking JUMO Installer Zip

Current version JUMO Installer

The JUMO installer has to be unpacked on a drive of the respective computer/server.

In this tutorial a folder "jumo_scada" was created directly under C, where the ZIP folder was unpacked:

3) Downloading and installing current Docker application

Docker Engine and Docker Compose are always required. On Window systems, only Docker Desktop has to be installed; it contains Docker Engine and Docker Compose.

Container Desktop is a possible UI alternative to Docker Desktop.




Installation rights are required for the following steps.

If your administrator account is not the same as your Windows user account (the case for domain users), you need to add the user to the "docker-users" group. Start the "Computer Management" as administrator and navigate to "Local Users and Groups",-> Groups -> docker-users. Right click to add the user to the group. Log out and log back in for the changes to take effect.

On Docker Desktop startup, Windows will prompt you to complete the WSL2 installation. The link in the prompt will take you to a website where WSL2 (Windows Subsystem for Linux 2) can be downloaded. All that needs to be done here is to execute "Step 4" and click on "Restart".

4) Loading and installing JUMO smartWARE SCADA image from JUMO Registry

1. Open PowerShell

The following page provides an overview all Powershell commands for Docker:

  • Open PowerShell and enter the following command.

cd C:\jumo_scada

"C:\jumo_scada" is our example path in these instructions. Replace it with the path leading to the unpacked JUMO installer.

  • Once cd C:\jumo_scada appears in the next front line instead of the original path, enter the following command:

docker login
  • Subsequently, you have to log in with the "username" and "password" provided by JUMO. You receive this log-in data together with the license key when purchasing JUMO smartWARE SCADA.

  • After log-in, enter the following commend

docker-compose pull
  • Upon pressing the Enter key, the data is updated by Docker "pulling" the JUMO smartWARE SCADA images from the previously entered path. However, this does not yet activate the containers. The process can take several seconds.

  • When the download is completed, please enter the following command. This command starts the containers in Docker.

docker-compose up -d

The following commands can be used in case of error messages:

docker ps -q | % { docker kill $_ }
docker-compose rm -f
docker-compose up -d

2. Opening Docker desktop

  • Now check in Docker desktop whether your container appears in the Docker Dashboard.

3. Going through JUMO smartWARE SCADA - Installer

  • Open your browser and enter the following in the URL line. Depending on how the installation was done, the IP address of the server or the assigned DNS name must be entered here.

  • Then the JUMO Installer opens. Please follow the installation instructions.

You can switch the language to English.

Normal Mode

Night Mode

After each menu item in the JUMO Installer, you can switch to the next one via "Next step".

Menu item



Here, the connection to various databases and servers is checked. The test can take several seconds.

If the check fails, enter the following commands.

docker-compose kill
docker-compose down
docker-compose up -d


In the "Provision" sector, a certificate has to be signed and a host name has to be allocated. Select "Self-signed" to continue. Assign the name of the server/system on which you are installing the JUMO smartWARE SCADA as the host name (e.g.: smartware-scada or the correspondingly assigned DNS name the IT has given) and click on "Submit".

Example host name, subsequently available in browser under http://smartware-scada or https://smartware-scada


Customer-specific host name under Windows (optional addition)

1.) Opening the "host" file under path C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc

2.) Enter the IP address in the file followed by the desired host name.

Example: scada-silothermometrie

3.) In the installation steps of the JUMO smartWARE SCADA, the desired host name can then be entered in the Host name field

4.) JUMO smartWARE SCADA can be accessed with URL https://scada-silothermoetrie after the installation

Basic setting

Databases and Server are established in the basic settings. When establishing the database, click on the "Send" button. Subsequently, you determine a password for your database and confirm your determined or generated password via the Send button. Passwords can be randomly generated via the fingerprint symbol. Subsequently, press the "Send" button at "Set up authentication server" to create the database.


A base tenant and an asset tenant must be defined here. Tip: Name the base tenant after your company and the asset tenant after its subject area in which the SCADA is to generate added value.

Edge Gateway

In the "Edge Gateway" area, you are asked whether a local IoT edge gateway should be created or not (usually: "Yes"). You are also asked about external IoT edge gateways. If, in addition to the SCADA main server (local IoT edge gateway), other networks or JUMO variTRON devices (external IoT edge gateways) are to be connected via MQTTS, click "Yes" (can also be changed subsequently).

Under "Data source name", the name is assigned to the first data source. It is recommended to use "Local edge gateway".

External edge gateways must be purchased per license. The internal edge gateway is always included.


In the security settings, a password is set or generated for the database and authentication server respectively. Passwords can be randomly generated here via the fingerprint icon (recommended). In the "Redis" tab, simply click on "Submit".


Depending on which feature or module is required, it can be decided here whether it will be implemented or not. Please follow the purchased licensing here. Modules that are not required consume unnecessary server power.

  • If a camera is required, then click "Yes".

  • Maintenance is usually to be clicked with "No", unless it was explicitly ordered.

  • If the module "Advanced reporting" has been purchased or a batch functionality is desired, then click "Yes".

  • If it is desired to work with scripts or to use the Runtime Script, then click "Yes".


An overview of all user names and passwords which are to be printed or saved as a PDF file is displayed in the final window. After pressing the "send" button in the "Conclusion" menu item of the JUMO installer, Linux Terminal commands have to be entered (appears in the software).

The root password is especially important.

  • After pressing the "send" button in the "Conclusion" menu item of the JUMO installer, the following commands have to be executed in PowerShell:

docker ps -q | % { docker kill $_ }
docker-compose down --remove-orphans
docker-compose up -d

Executing these commands takes a little time! At this point, a restart and update is performed.

docker ps -q is a command to show all IDs. The command docker-compose kill stops all running containers. docker-compose down --remove-orphane removes all containers where the activity was not defined in the file, while the last two previously known commands re-pull JUMO smartWARE SCADA images and restart the container.

Activating JUMO smartWARE SCADA license

The start page of the JUMO smartWARE SCADA can be called up in the browser via the host name. The login works with the user "Root" and the corresponding password from the password list of the last step.

At this point, we recommend that you provide the server with a CA certificate. The application can then be accessed at https://.

To adjust the log-in themes (SSO, Security, Registration, LDAP, etc.) please check the chapter User management Keycloak (IAM)

1) Opening license settings

As soon as a JUMO application is started, a warning not appears that no valid license was found. The license settings open by clicking the license setting in the warning window. Here, copy the system UID.

The UID of the respective SCADA Installation can be found in the central administration under Settings and Licensing. This settings overview can only be viewed in the top root client.

Es wurde keine gültige Lizenz gefunden” (German) → No valid license was found

2) Activating the SCADA license

In order to use the SCADA application, a valid license has to be entered in the system. If a valid license has not been entered, only the central administration can be accessed.

In order to be able to store a license in the system, it must first be activated in the JUMO license portal under using the license key sent to you and the system-specific UID (identification number of the SCADA installation). You receive the license key by mail as soon as you have purchased the JUMO smartWARE SCADA.

If you wish to activate the software offline, please contact JUMO.

JUMO smartWARE SCADA license portal:

Once the license is activated/established, it can be downloaded as a file or copied directly.

Before you leave the website, be sure to back up (copy to a text file or hit the download button) after activating the license, as it is a one-time activation. The license key cannot be used for further licenses!

3) Activating the SCADA Software

The activation of SCADA with the activated license is done via the settings for licensing in the central administration. The activated license has to be entered und LicenseKey and saved

Congratulations! You have successfully activated your SCADA.

Would you like to add further users in addition to the root user, please consult chapter User management Keycloak (IAM).
