The Shopping client is a module in the Tachyon Agent. It replaces the Shopping Agent that was installed on machines to support connection to the Shopping website in versions of Shopping before v5.5. When the Tachyon Agent starts, if the Shopping module is enabled the Tachyon Agent will automatically remove any previous installation of the 1E Shopping Agent. The Shopping client also includes the Windows Servicing Assistant (WSA).

The Shopping client does not require a Tachyon license or any Tachyon servers.

The Shopping client is not supported on:

  • Non-Windows devices
  • Legacy OS (ie. OS which Microsoft no longer support including XP, Vista, Server 2008 etc.)

The table below lists the configuration properties required to enable the Shopping module required for integration with Shopping v5.5 or later. The Shopping module must be enabled on all devices that will connect to the Shopping 5.5 website. Enabling the Shopping module also enables the WSA. There are no additional properties required to enable or configure WSA.

These properties must exist in the Tachyon Agent configuration file, except where indicated, and can be specified during installation of the Tachyon Agent as Windows installer properties, and therefore specified in upper-case. They can appear in the Tachyon Agent configuration file in mixed-case, and can be reconfigured after installation using Tachyon Agent command-line parameters.

Configuration PropertyInstallation defaultDescription

Module.Shopping.Enabled

false

Set this property to true to enable the Shopping module. The default value is false. Must be set to true to enable users of the computer to use the 1E Shopping self-service portal and the Windows Servicing Assistant.

Enabling this will also cause any installations of Shopping Agent to be uninstalled the first time the Tachyon Agent is started.

Module.Shopping.ShoppingCentralUrl


Defines the URL that the Tachyon Agent will use to connect to the Shopping self-service portal.It should be set to the URL for the Shopping website. The Shopping website uses a host header, for which a DNS Name FQDN should have been defined. The Shopping Web Site URL should define the full path to the Shopping web application, comprising the scheme (HTTP or HTTPS), the host header (DNS Name FQDN), the port number (you do not have to provide this if using default port 80 or 443), and the path /Shopping. For example https://shopping.acme.local/Shopping.

This property is mandatory when Module.Shopping.Enabled=true.

Module.Shopping.LoopbackExemptionEnabled

false

Optional. Set this property to true if users are likely to use Microsoft Edge or other Metro browsers to access the Shopping web site. Default value is false.Enabling Loopback Exemption implements a mechanism that enables the Edge and Metro Internet Explorer browsers to make calls to the Shopping module via the local computer. This mechanism affects these browsers as a whole and is not just restricted to Shopping. Before enabling this option, check your corporate security policy and be aware of the implications of allowing access between browsers and the local machine. By enabling loopback, you are only setting the Edge/Metro Internet Explorer browsers to the same level of security as other browsers which allow this setting already. These browsers are:

  • All versions of Chrome
  • All versions of Firefox
  • Non-Metro UI based Internet Explorer browsers

If you are running an unattended install, you can use MODULE.SHOPPING.LOOPBACKEXEMPTIONENABLED for all OSes but only works on Windows 8, 8.1, 10 and Windows Server 2012 R2. To make the solution more secure, the Agent only allows inbound connections to localhost/127.0.0.1
