The Proficy Portal server has the following requirements:

Connector Requirements

To ensure the best performance and problem-free use of the Proficy Portal connectors, it is recommended that the data source application is run with the most recent Service Packs, Hot Fixes, or Software Improvement Modules (SIMs). In some instances, there is a minimum software update requirement for the connecting application. The connector requirements are:




iFIX - the local iFIX iClient install should be updated with the most recent iFIX General SIM. The SCADA nodes in the iClient remote nodes list should also have the most recent SIM.


Supported versions:

  • 5.0

  • 5.5

  • 6.0

  • 6.1


Supported Historian versions: 1.0, 2.0, 3.0 or greater.

Install the Historian client to the Proficy Portal server and update the installation with the most recent Historian General SIM. If you are connecting to both Historian version 1 and 2 servers, install the higher version of the Historian client to the Proficy Portal server.


Supported PI-API versions: to 1.3.4.

Plant Database

Supported Plant Applications versions: 4.2 or greater.


Supported Shop Floor SPC versions: 4.6, 5.03, 5.5.


At the time of release, the following versions/updates are required:

  • 5.0 - Service Pack 4 with Update 042204_IA_504

  • 5.5 - Service Pack 2 with Update 042204_IA_5502

  • 6.0 - Service Pack 3 with Update 042204_IA_603

  • 6.1 - Service Pack 2

For newer updates, check the web site (see link at the bottom of this table) for CIMPLICITY/Proficy Portal connectivity updates.


Supported iFIX versions: 3.0 or greater on the Proficy Portal server machine

NOTE: The iFIX connector on the Proficy Portal machine can communicate with any SCADA server that iFIX 3.0+ can communicate with, such as iFIX 2.1 and FIX 6.15 - 7.0.

iClient must be installed to the Proficy Portal server. iFIX 2.6 and 3.0 require a SIM for trend data.


Supported versions: any 1.0 compliant server.

Client Requirements

Your Proficy Portal clients require the following hardware and software:

NOTE: Other software that runs on the same machine as the Proficy Portal client may run a different version of the Java Run-time plug-in. Multiple versions of the Java Run-time plug-in can be run in different browser sessions. However, if you attempt to run multiple versions in the same browser session, the attempt will fail.
