Minimum requirements and components

Decipher is a production ready IDP solution, closely integrated with Blue Prism. We recommend that you deploy Decipher on dedicated hardware to better support scalability as your use of Decipher increases. We also recommend installing and testing Decipher in a non-production environment prior to using it in a live environment.

Decipher is designed to provide an on-premise solution and is not supported in Blue Prism Cloud at this time.

Minimum requirements

The following minimum setup is required to run Decipher IDP on a standalone deployment:

  • Administrator access to the devices on which Blue Prism is installed.
  • CPU: Intel i7 3rd generation or above.
  • Windows 10, or Windows Server 2012 or later.
  • RAM: 6 GB (1 GB for the application server at a load of 10,000 pages per day, plus 3 GB for SQL Server, plus 2 GB for Windows).
  • Hard drive space for image storage. The average file size is 1 MB per page and 1 TB per 1 million pages.

Supported browsers

Decipher requires Google Chrome to be set as the default browser. Decipher IDP does not currently support any other browsers.

Minimum SQL permissions

The minimum SQL permissions for the user required to connect to the database during the installation process must have the appropriate privileges to create or configure the databases from within the product, therefore an appropriate administrator account will need to be used when running the installation process:

  • Create Database: dbcreator (server role) or sysadmin (server role)

  • Configure Database: sysadmin (server role) or db_owner (database role)

The database user required to connect to the databases during normal operation must have the minimum SQL permissions to access the Decipher databases. The required permissions are:

  • db_datareader

  • db_datawriter
