Deploying ToolJet on Amazon EC2
You should setup a PostgreSQL database manually to be used by the ToolJet server.
You can effortlessly deploy Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud Service (EC2) by utilizing a CloudFormation template. This template will deploy all the services required to run ToolJet on AWS EC2 instances.
To deploy all the services at once, simply employ the following template:
curl -LO https://tooljet-deployments.s3.us-west-1.amazonaws.com/cloudformation/EC2-cloudfomration.yml
Follow the steps below to deploy ToolJet on AWS EC2 instances.
Setup a PostgreSQL database and make sure that the database is accessible from the EC2 instance.
Login to your AWS management console and go to the EC2 management page.
Imagessection, click on the
Find the ToolJet version you want to deploy. Now, from the AMI search page, select the search type as "Public Images" and input the version you'd want
AMI Name : tooljet_vX.X.X.ubuntu_bionicin the search bar.
Select ToolJet's AMI and bootup an EC2 instance.
Creating a new security group is recommended. For example, if the installation should receive traffic from the internet, the inbound rules of the security group should look like this:
protocol port allowed_cidr tcp 22 your IP tcp 80 0.0.0.0/0 tcp 443 0.0.0.0/0
Once the instance boots up, SSH into the instance by running
ssh -i <path_to_pem_file> ubuntu@<public_ip_of_the_instance>
Switch to the app directory by running
cd ~/app. Modify the contents of the
.envfile. ( Eg:
.envfile looks like this:
PG_USER=<pg user name>
PG_PASS=<pg user password>info
If there are self signed HTTPS endpoints that Tooljet needs to connect to, please make sure that
NODE_EXTRA_CA_CERTSenvironment variable is set to the absolute path containing the certificates.
TOOLJET_HOSTenvironment variable determines where you can access the ToolJet client. It can either be the public ipv4 address of your instance or a custom domain that you want to use.
We use a lets encrypt plugin on top of nginx to create TLS certificates on the fly.info
Please make sure that
TOOLJET_HOSTstarts with either
Once you've configured the
./setup_app. This script will install all the dependencies of ToolJet and then will start the required services.
If you've set a custom domain for
TOOLJET_HOST, add a
A recordentry in your DNS settings to point to the IP address of the EC2 instance.
You're all done, ToolJet client would now be served at the value you've set in

ToolJet AMI comes inbuilt with PostgREST. If you intend to use this feature, you'd only have to setup the environment variables in
~/app/.env file and run

Upgrading to the Latest Version
The latest version includes architectural changes and, hence, comes with new migrations.
If this is a new installation of the application, you may start directly with the latest version. This guide is not required for new installations.
Prerequisites for Upgrading to the Latest Version:
It is crucial to perform a comprehensive backup of your database before starting the upgrade process to prevent data loss.
Ensure that your current version is v2.23.3-ee2.10.2 before upgrading.
Users on versions earlier than v2.23.3-ee2.10.2 must first upgrade to this version before proceeding to the latest version.
