Install

Running the Saagie installer is a multi-step process. You must:

  1. Validate the .mdl files generated during the configuration process.

  2. Validate cluster prerequisites.

  3. Run the installer.

  4. Note your instance’s URL.

1. Validate environment

Validating your environment will verify that it meets all prerequisites.

To validate your environment, run following argument:

/path/to/bin/saagiectl validate all
If your environment does not pass validation, submit a ticket to Saagie support.

2. Run the installer

The installer will check the compatibility of your platform with the information you provided during the configuration process. It will also install missing components.

To run the installer, use the following in-line argument:

/path/to/bin/saagiectl install <component> (1)
1 Replace <component> with the appropriate component in the order listed below.

You will repeat this process six times. You must run the installer in this order:

  1. helm

  2. kafka

  3. common

  4. customer

  5. platform

  6. umdc

You can also use all as component to run all six steps in a single command.
If you are given the option to upgrade helm, please contact Saagie before continuing the installation.

There are two outcome options each time the installer checks for compatibility: no error and error.

  • If your result is no error, run the installer for the next component.

  • If your result is error, follow the instructions provided in the error message. Then, run the installer for that component again.

2.1. Maximum timeouts

If you feel like the process might be taking too long, verify the maximum timeout for that component.

Table 1. Maximum timeout per component
Component Time

helm

3. Instance URL

After all components have been run successfully, the installer will provide the URL of your instance. Login to Saagie in your browser with the URL, login, and password.

  • If you used Keycloak, the installer will provide the login and password for your administrator account.

  • If you used an LDAP, you already have the login and password for your administrator account.
