The below instructions will help you to integrate your Tcadmin server with clientexec to auto-activate packages:

Server configuration:
First you need to configure the plugin in ClientExec's server section "system setup>>servers/domains"

  • Click on add new server
  • Provide a name, your tcadmin hostname and tcadmin host IP.
  • Add the tcadmin host's name servers and corresponding IP under 'Name servers' tab.
  • Navigate to 'Plugin configuration Tab and for now, only provide your Tcadmin Billing API url, Admin username, Admin password and error e-mail
  • Save new server

Custom Fields Configuration:
We need to setup the package custom fields to match those entered in the server configuration.

You can create custom fields under "Pystem setup>>Products/Addond>>Customfields". Update these fields to make them "Available on Signup" so customers can enter their preferred username and password, and make them both required. You can also restrict these fields to your game server package types.

  • Add three new custom fields ie, 'tcadmin username', 'tcadmin password' and 'Location'
  • The TCAdmin username and tcadmin password should be 'Text Field'
  • For Location, select drop-down and add the location details as: North (corresponding DCID), South (corresponding DCID), East (corresponding DCID), West (corresponding DCID)

Now go to system setup>>servers" click on the TCAdmin server to edit it.

Provide the name of the custom fields as:
  • 'Client Username Custom Field'= Name of the customefield configured for username (here 'tcadmin username')
  • 'Client Password Custom Field' = Name of the customfield configured for password (here 'tcadmin password')
  • 'Game Hostname Custom Field' = Name of the customfield configured for location (Here 'Location')
  • Save changes

Product Configuration:
Create a new product group under "System setup>>Products/Addons>>Product" for each game that you will be hosting.

  • Now go to "system setup>>products/addons" and add your new product and there select the tcadmin package group from the drop-down under 'Product general' tab
  • Navigate to advanced tab and select the configured server from the drop-down
