Setup Initialization Process

  • WaveMaker platform requires a user; the user should have access to SSH to communicate between Platform, Studioworkspace, and AppDeployment instances, and for creating Docker containers.
  • For WME setup, you can provide your own user with fine-grained access or WaveMaker will create a user called wavemaker with its auto-generated keys.
  • If you want to provide your own user, create a user with specified prerequisites and ensure that the user has SSH access.

Running WME Installer

  • After downloading and extracting the WME installer, run the bash script which is displayed at the terminal as shown in the command below.
    bash /usr/local/content/wme/wme-installer/<version>/wme-installer.sh 
  • To configure SSL for platform please refer ssl configuration for platform

  • When prompted, enter the interface name. For example, eth0, ens5; and confirm the IP Address.

  • Provide the CIDR (Classless Inter-Domain Routing) range; CIDR is a network range allocation to a particular network address; it will tell you how many network IP addresses are available in a given network.
