These pages describe the process of installing and setting up the EBA DMS environment.
The details of each step are available on the individual subpages.

Overview of the process of setting up an EBA DMS document system:

1.Installing the database

EBA DMS stores all data and settings at SQL level, which means that you need an SQL database.

EBA is developed on the free and open source PostgreSQL database and is recommended for use as companies do not need to purchase licences to use this database. Microsoft SQL and Oracle databases are also supported.

2. Installing the EBA software package

EBA consists of several installation packages called. modules. Some of these modules are installed on the server, some on workstations and some on both types of computers.

TheEBA client is the user part of the programme – the graphical interface that is installed on the server and on the workstations, as it is needed by everyone who works with e-documents. It is important that the same version of the client is installed on all computers.

TheEBA application services are the server part of the programme, which is installed only on the server, where it takes care of automating certain tasks, such as performing send/receive actions, notifications, making a backup copy of the EBA system database, and periodically importing and exporting data in the form of exchange files that can be used with back-end systems.

AnEBA Printer is a software virtual printer that is visible on a computer like any other printer. The EBA Printer allows that a document does not need to be printed and then scanned in order to be imported into the EBA DMS. The EBA Printer redirects the printed document directly to the EBA DMS, where an e-document is created, which is treated and processed like any other document.

3.Setting up database connections, EBA client and EBA application services

After the software has been installed, the database has been set up and the EBA application services have been configured, it is necessary to interconnect these instances.

4.Obtaining qualified digital certificates

In order to operate in the EBA system, you need to obtain qualified digital certificates from one of the accredited agencies for issuing qualified electronic certificates in Slovenia. Currently, these are SIGEN-CA, Pošta(r)CA, Halcom CA or AC NLB.

A company usually needs three qualified certificates to work, and the EBA can issue you with temporary test certificates until you obtain qualified digital certificates

Once you have received your Qualified Digital Certificates, please collect them and store them in the appropriate location. You will need the certificates when you register and register your company for the first time with the EBA

5.Registering your company in the EBA DMS

Before you can actually use the EBA DMS, you must register your company in EBA Agency. Test environment have separate registration.
