Install on one machine RHEL#

Deprecated: Use installation playbooks instead

Instructions to manually install and upgrade EclecticIQ Intelligence Center, and using rundoc to install or upgrade EclecticIQ Intelligence Center, are deprecated.

Use EclecticIQ Intelligence Center installation playbooks instead.


Make sure you’ve set up the repositories before attempting these instructions.

To follow the instructions here, you must complete the steps in the “Set up the repositories” guide.

This procedure consists of the following steps:

  • Install Java.

  • Install Postfix.

  • Install the Intelligence Center and its third-party dependencies.

  • Enable and start services.

Install Java#

Install Java 11 (OpenJDK).

yum -y install java-11-openjdk-headless tzdata-java
update-alternatives --set java $(readlink -f /usr/lib/jvm/jre-11/bin/java)

Install Postfix#

Some functionality of Intelligence Center relies on sending emails. For that an MTA has to be installed.

yum -y install postfix

Generate a secret key#

Next, generate a secret key and add it to /etc/default/eclecticiq-platform:

EIQ_SECRET_KEY=$(cat /dev/urandom | tr -dc 'a-zA-Z0-9' | fold -w 32 | head -n 1)
echo "EIQ_SECRET_KEY=$EIQ_SECRET_KEY" >> /etc/default/eclecticiq-platform

Install the Intelligence Center and its dependencies#

To perform a full install of the Intelligence Center, run:

yum -y install eclecticiq-platform-full

Then, restrict access to configuration files by running:

chown root:eclecticiq /etc/default/eclecticiq-platform*
chmod 640 /etc/default/eclecticiq-platform*

Install extensions#

Install all extensions:

📔 You must set up the /opt/eclecticiq-platform-backend/pip.conf and ~/.netrc files in “Set up the repositories” for this command to work.

# Uninstall old extensions from venv
/opt/eclecticiq-platform-backend/bin/pip freeze | grep '^eclecticiq-extension-' | grep -v '^eclecticiq-extension-api=' | cut -d= -f1 | xargs -r /opt/eclecticiq-platform-backend/bin/pip uninstall -y

# Install specified extensions in venv
/opt/eclecticiq-platform-backend/bin/pip install $extensions_packages

Start and enable third-party services#

Start and enable the services needed by the IC:

# Start and enable third-party services
for x in \
    elasticsearch \
    kibana \
    nginx \
    postfix \
    postgresql-14 \
    redis \
    statsite \
    logstash \
    ; do
        systemctl start $x
        systemctl enable $x

Database migrations#

Once done with the instructions here, you must perform database migrations to finish installing the IC.


To complete the installation procedure, make sure you run the database migrations before continuing with the other configuration steps.
