Note: Please check the Installation Prerequisites before you proceed.
Run the below commands to verify currently installed RDA prerequisites.
Note: Please make sure the below commands are in the PATH variable in the user's login profile.
Step 1: Request software by contacting [email protected] The following procedure assumes you received the download link.
Download the 'rda-docker-compose-with-ssl.tar' software package.
Step 2: Create a virtual environment using python3
python3 -m venv <name of the environment>
$ python3 -m venv rda-venv
Step 3: Source virtual env that was created in Step 2 as shown below.
$ cd rda-venv
$ source bin/activate
Step 4: Install docker-compose tool needed to install RDA as shown below
(rda-venv)$ pip3 install docker-compose
(rda-venv)$ docker-compose --version
docker-compose version 1.29.0, build 07737305
Note: Make sure docker-compose is installed properly
Step 5: Extract the 'rda-docker-compose-with-ssl.tar' software package under the user's home directory or some other directory.
tar -xvf rda-docker-compose-with-ssl.tar
RDA files extracted under rda-venv with the files
Step 3: Run setup.py python script as shown below.
Successful installation and setup of RDA on Mac OS
Note: The setup.py creates a directory called 'cfx' under user's home directory for configuration files and exported files. (Ex: /home/<userid>/cfx)
Below are the 'RDA' directory locations and their purpose.
/home/<userid>/cfx/cfxdx/config --> Location of the conf.yml file where many datasource credentials and other settings are configured.
/home/<userid>/cfx/cfxdx/output --> Location of the exported CSV / Excel / JSON files
Step 4: To access 'RDA' interface, open up a browser and enter the URL as https://ipaddress:9998
Note: Access RDA using https://<rda-ip-address>:9998/
The default user name is rdademo and the password is rdademo1234
Note: Default username/password can be changed from docker-compose.yml file under RDA install directory.
Step 4: Accessing RDA Page
Install RDA Datanetwork Components (Optional)
The following steps explain how to install Kafka/Zookeeper components needed for RDA Data network bots.
Download docker-compose file required to install Kafka/Zookeeper and use the below steps to start Kafka/zookeeper docker instances (these instances in turn will be used by RDA runtime)
bash# cd /home/macaw/
bash# mkdir -p kafka-zookeeper
bash# cd kafka-zookeeperbash# wget <docker-compose-file>
bash# <edit the file and add the ipaddress or FQDN of RDA machine>
bash# docker-compose pull
bash# docker-compose up -d
In addition to the above steps, make sure you enable the following ports
sudo firewall-cmd --add-port=2181/tcp --permanent
sudo firewall-cmd --add-port=9092/tcp --permanent
sudo firewall-cmd --reload
Step 1: Make sure the docker (desktop) environment is intact as per RDA installation prereqs. Also, docker-compose is available to the user (as shown in the below screenshot).
Step 2: Go to the directory where RDA was previously installed.
Goto directory where RDA was installed previously
Step 3: Make sure RDA is up and running. This can be verified by running the docker command as shown in the below screenshot.
Make sure RDA (cfxdx) is up and running using the command 'docker ps -a' as shown above.
Step 4: Go to the directory where RDA was installed and also, docker-compose.yml is available (as shown in the below screenshot).
RDA directory with docker-compose.yml file
Step 5: Using the docker-compose command 'docker-compose down' and bring down the RDA instances that are running in your environment as shown in the below screenshot.
docker-compose down will delete the old RDA containers (as shown above)
Step 6: Using the docker-compose command, upgrade RDA using the 'docker-compose pull' command as shown in the below screenshot.
docker-compose pull will download/install latest images from registry (as shown above)
Step 7: Start RDA upgraded instance using 'docker-compose up -d' as shown in the below screenshot.
Access RDA using https://<IPAddress>:9998 and verify the latest version.
