In our steps for setting up a single instance of Yellowfin, Yellowfin runs on port 80 (standard HTTP port) of your specified DNS hostname or IP address, with 4GB of allocated RAM, with Traefik fronting it. .
When deploying Yellowfin with Traefik fronting it, the Yellowfin Kubernetes service will default to the “ClusterIP” service type in Kubernetes, so it will not expose any ports to the external interface of the Kubernetes cluster.
Before deploying a single instance with these defaults, make sure you have already created a repository database and synced it with the same version of Yellowfin that will be used in the Yellowfin container. To do this, download the full application installer for Yellowfin, and install it on your workstation. This will create a Yellowfin repo DB as well as an instance of Yellowfin in a folder which can be deleted after configuring the containers.
For a list of supported database types, see the database information on Install And Deploy Yellowfin.
To deploy a single instance of Yellowfin, follow the steps below.
- Install the full application installer version of Yellowfin on your workstation (this is temporary to ensure the repo DB is available for the containers to use)
- Copy the web.xml file from this installation and save it as a backup to your preferred location (this acts as a reference for the Yellowfin credentials required to connect to your Yellowfin repo DB)
- Ensure Kubernetes is running and that Traefik has been installed
Copy the following text and paste it into your preferred text editor:
Read through the above text and replace the database connection settings with your own configuration details (these are located in the web.xml file of the Yellowfin installation)
In the configuration text, find the section starting with ### Yellowfin Standalone Ingress ### and add your own server details. At a minimum, replace `INSERT_DNS_HOSTNAME` with your own DNS name (or IP address) for Traefik to listen to, for routing requests to the Yellowfin instance. For example:
Save the text to a YAML file called yellowfin-single-yml
Run the following command in a terminal to deploy Yellowfin and execute it in the background:
Kubectl apply –f yellowfin-single-instance.yml
Start Yellowfin by typing your host URL
Ensure that Yellowfin is running from your container and that you can login (this confirms that your login credentials are correct, so you can safely delete the workstation instance of Yellowfin
Delete the workstation instance of Yellowfin by removing the folder
