Configure Privacera Manager UI#

  1. In a terminal window, connect to the cloud Linux instance using an SSH client. Follow the steps given in the links below.

  2. Get the <PRIVACERA_HUB_REPO_NAME> and log onto the Privacera Docker Hub, substituting the value you've received for <PRIVACERA_HUB_USER>.  You will be prompted for the password.  Use the value for <PRIVACERA_HUB_PASSWORD>.

    docker login <PRIVACERA_HUB_REPO_NAME> -u <PRIVACERA_HUB_USER>
    
  3. Replace <PRIV_MGR_PACKAGE>, <PRIV_MGR_IMAGE> and <PRIVACERA_HUB_REPO_NAME> below:

    export PRIV_MGR_PACKAGE=<PRIV_MGR_PACKAGE>
    export PRIV_MGR_IMAGE=<PRIV_MGR_IMAGE>
    export PRIVACERA_HUB_REPO_NAME=<PRIVACERA_HUB_REPO_NAME>
    
  4. Default installation folders for Privacera and Privacera Manager are '~/privacera', and '~/privacera/privacera-manager',  (If you use a different folder, you will need to adjust the commands and sequences accordingly. )

    Use the following sequence to first create the installation folder, then using wget, download and extract the privacera-manager components as shown.

    mkdir -p ~/privacera/downloads
    cd ~/privacera/downloads
    wget $PRIV_MGR_PACKAGE/privacera-manager.tar.gz -O privacera-manager.tar.gz
    cd ~/privacera
    tar -zxf ~/privacera/downloads/privacera-manager.tar.gz
    

    The folder '~/privacera/privacera-manager' will contain all the required components. 

  5. Create 'pm-env.sh', a shell script used by Privacera Manager during the installation process and for future upgrades.

    cd ~/privacera/privacera-manager/config
    echo '#!/bin/bash' > pm-env.sh
    echo "export  PRIV_MGR_PACKAGE=$PRIV_MGR_PACKAGE/privacera-manager.tar.gz" >> pm-env.sh
    echo "export  PRIV_MGR_IMAGE=$PRIVACERA_HUB_REPO_NAME/privacera-manager:$PRIV_MGR_IMAGE" >> pm-env.sh
    
  6. Run the following commands.

    cd ~/privacera/privacera-manager/
    cd config/pm-ui/
    cp sample.application-custom.properties application-custom.properties
    

If you want to run the Privacera Manager UI on a specific port other than the default port, do the following changes:

`vi application-custom.properties

Change the server port, Privacer Manger UI will run on this port.

server.port=6888

To upgrade using the new version, you should be having an existing Privacera Platform installed in your environment. Follow the steps to upgrade:

  1. Open the pm-env.sh file to add the new release version for the Privacera Manager packages.

    vi ~/privacera/privacera-manager/config/pm-env.sh
    
  2. Update the version by replacing <REL_VERSION> with the new release version and save it.

    export  PRIV_MGR_PACKAGE=https://s3.amazonaws.com/privacera/rel/<REL_VERSION>/cloud/pm/privacera-manager.tar.gz
    export  PRIV_MGR_IMAGE=<PRIVACERA_HUB_REPO_NAME>/privacera-manager:<REL_VERSION>
    
  3. Run the upgrade. This only upgrades the Privacera Manager packages.

    cd ~/privacera/privacera-manager
    ./privacera-manager.sh upgrade-manager
    
  4. Start the PM UI.

    cd  ~/privacera/privacera-manager
