** This article is intended for facilities that are migrating from a Locally Hosted RGP Deployment to RGP Cloud. Your RGP dues will be increased to your new rate as soon as you receive your cloud preview information**
The Cloud Migration Preview Period allows you to confirm that all workstations, receipt printers, cash drawers, and EMV terminals are operating properly with your cloud host.
Step 1 - Access your Cloud Host
Using the credentials that were emailed to you, follow the instructions to Access Your Cloud Host.
Step 2 - Testing Hardware and Configuring EMV terminals
OpenEdge EMV Terminals
If you are using the OpenEdge EMV integration, please review this document to make sure the terminals operate on your cloud host using the EdgeExpress integration.
It's best just to work through the cloud deployment steps for each EMV connected terminal and confirm/update the settings as required.
Receipt Printer and Cash Drawer
On the workstations connected to your receipt printers, within the cloud client application:
- Click Options -> General Settings
- Point to your receipt printer
- Create a fake cash transaction within RGP on the cloud host’s cloud database
- Confirm your receipt printer works as expected
Settings By Workstation
Some RGP settings related to the receipt printer and cash drawer are BY WORKSTATION.
For these settings you will need to reconfigure them as required on your cloud host for each relevant seat.
Login to your cloud host and navigate to Data Entry -> Manage -> Settings -> This Workstation.
Within Rock Gym Pro on your cloud host, please create a test customer and confirm that you are able to capture a webcam image.
Step 3 - Going "Live" with RGP Cloud
Before going live with RGP Cloud, be sure that each of the six steps listed below have been completed on EVERY Rock Gym Pro workstation.
- RGP Cloud Client installed on all Rock Gym Pro workstations
- For fixed seat workstations, the credentials must be paired with the computer. See the section on Pairing Computers in the Access Your Cloud Host article.
- Appropriate cloud seat credentials entered into each cloud client installation
- Cloud connection tested and confirmed for each workstation
- Web camera and Receipt Printer tested and confirmed for each workstation with the connected hardware
- IMPORTANT: If required, OpenEdge EMV terminals configured and operating for each workstation.
IMPORTANT: You will perform the switch-over steps yourself at a time convenient for your business
Please read the Switch Over Steps document to familiarize yourself with the switch over steps. You will follow the steps in this document when you are ready to go live.
