  4. Click on the Manual installation link.
  5. In the first step, add the name of the Agent and choose the environment it will be associated with. Click Next.

Alternatively you can click on Add environment contact which will automatically add in the email of the Contact Person for that environment. Click Next. The package is either downloaded onto your computer or a link is sent by email depending on what you have chosen. (Make sure you have configured the Email Integration to the correct environment)
