  1. Apache ActiveMQ -5.15.7 is configured in the customer environment. Unica Director does not bundle or provide Apache ActiveMQ. You must download, install and configure it. Before beginning the Unica Director installation you should have the ActiveMQ - Broker URL, port and credentials. You are required to provide this information while installing Unica Director.
  2. You should install the Unica Director agent on the Unica Campaign systems (Web application and listener machines) - You must have the required information or access to install Unica Director on these machines. Example - Operating system details like - hostname, login details, installation location and so on.
  3. Please identify ports that could be used for Server component and Agent components. These ports should not be in use by any other service or application on the machine.
  4. Add Unica Campaign Listener Hostname in application:

    Note: The Listener Hostname cannot be an IP address.

    1. Log in to Unica.

    2. Navigate to Settings ->Configuration.

    3. Navigate to Campaign ->unicaACListener.

    4. Update the ServerHost to Hostname.

    1. Go to Settings -> Configuration.

    2. Go to FlowchartEvents . set “enableEvents" to yes.

    3. Go to FlowhcartEvents-> ActiveMQ . Fil in all ActiveMQ details.

    For example:

    url tcp://
    Unica Platform User with Data Sources for ActiveMQ Credentials asm_Admin
    Data Source For ActiveMQ message broker credentials ACTIVEMQ_CRED_DS

    Please make sure that the following performance counters are available. You can check this by launching the Performance Monitor:
    • Processor Time
    • Working Set
    These counters help the Unica Director - Agent application to gather the statistics of the Unica Campaign listener or server processes on memory and CPU utilization.
    Note: If the performance counters are not available, open the command prompt as an administrator on the target server and enter the following commands to rebuild the performance counters. Otherwise you will not be able to see the data in the System Usage Graph on the Windows Operating System.
