Manually deploying SharePoint-side package

Jive provides a manual deploy of the SharePoint package (.wsp) to a SharePoint farm, either single server or multiserver. This deployment requires the assistance of a Jive Professional Services engineer.

Package file naming

The name of the package file has the following structure:


Here <SharePoint_version> indicates the SharePoint version the add-on is compatible with. <JiveForSharepoint_verion> indicates the version of the add-on; for this add-on, the version number starts with v5.

Deploying the package

To deploy the .wsp file:

  1. Upload the package from the specified location to the SharePoint farm:
    Add-SPSolution -LiteralPath <<c:\JiveForSharepoint_2013_v5.1.1.19.wsp>>

    where <<c:\JiveForSharepoint_2013_v5.1.1.19.wsp>> is the path to the downloaded package.

  2. Deploy the uploaded solution for the specified SharePoint web application:
    Install-SPSolution -Identity <<JiveForSharepoint_2013_v5.1.1.19.wsp>> -GACDeployment -web application <<url of the web app>>

    where <<JiveForSharepoint_2013_v5.1.1.19.wsp>> is the name of the package.

After a successful solution deployment, deploy the following features to SharePoint:

STSADM.EXE -o installfeature -name Jive.Sharepoint.Deployment_AnnouncementEventReceiverFeature -force
STSADM.EXE -o installfeature -name Jive.Sharepoint.Deployment_CalendarEventReceiverFeature -force
STSADM.EXE -o installfeature -name Jive.Sharepoint.Deployment_CreateSiteCollectionJobFeature -force
STSADM.EXE -o installfeature -name Jive.Sharepoint.Deployment_FileActivityDiscoveryFeature -force
STSADM.EXE -o installfeature -name Jive.Sharepoint.Deployment_FileActivityDiscoveryJobFeature -force
STSADM.EXE -o installfeature -name Jive.Sharepoint.Deployment_FileEventReceiverFeature -force
STSADM.EXE -o installfeature -name Jive.Sharepoint.Deployment_FileEventReceiverJobFeature -force
STSADM.EXE -o installfeature -name Jive.Sharepoint.Deployment_JiveContainerWebPartFeature -force
STSADM.EXE -o installfeature -name Jive.Sharepoint.Deployment_LinkEventReceiverFeature -force
STSADM.EXE -o installfeature -name Jive.Sharepoint.Deployment_TaskEventReceiverFeature -force
Note: When upgrading the deployment, those features should not be upgraded, they must match the deployed package.
