Step 3. Install DataClarity

  1. Download or copy over the distribution file provided by DataClarity, <distribution>.tar.gz, where “distribution” is the name of the specific distribution file, for example, dataclarity-2021.5-premium.tar.gz.

    You may use the following command to download the file by inserting the URL to the file, for example:

    curl -LO
  2. Unpack the tar file:

    tar -zxf dataclarity-free-latest.tar.gz

    After unpacking, you get the distribution folder with,, and template files.

  3. The install script must have an executable mode enabled. Run the following command to make sure it is enabled:

    chmod +x
  4. From the distribution folder, execute the installation script:

    1. Enter production to install the latest stable production version or beta to install the pre-release version. 
      Note: This option will appear in premium installation only.

    2. Enter the public entry point (IP, host, FQDN).

      Note: If you set an IP address, the installation script will skip the next step for adding an alias, as it will not be necessary.

    3. For Add host alias to resolve “[hostname]”, enter one of the following:

      • y — If you want to use your PC hostname that is not registered in public DNS (not bound to that PC on the global DNS server). This command will add the PC’s hostname and IP to the hosts file inside the docker containers.

        For IP address for “hostname”, type in the external IP by which you can reach the PC outside the machine.

      • n — To skip adding host alias.

    4. For Disable HTTPS, enter one of the following:

      • y — To disable SSL, making the client-server connection insecure.

      • n — To enable SSL.
        To use your own certificate for your domain, create the folder certs in /distribution/template, and then place the certificate file and the key file in that folder. Otherwise, the installer will automatically generate a self-signed certificate for your domain.

    5. (This step appears if you enabled SSL (selected n for Disable HTTPS)).

      For Disable built-in SSL termination, enter one of the following:

      • y — The platform will use an insecure connection to communicate internally. Use this option if you want to place a gateway (reverse proxy), which will handle SSL offloading, in front of the platform.
      • n — The platform will use a secure connection to communicate internally and externally.
    6. For Disable authentication for Kubernetes Dashboard, select one of the following:

      • y — To disable authentication for the Kubernetes Dashboard; it is not recommended if you are using a public entry point.

      • n — To use authentication for the Kubernetes Dashboard. You will need to use a token to log into the Kubernetes Dashboard.

        If you choose this option, the access token will be displayed at the end of the installation process

    7. To Proceed with the installation enter y.
