Deploying ToolJet on Kubernetes (AKS)


You should setup a PostgreSQL database manually to be used by ToolJet. We recommend using Azure Database for PostgreSQL since this guide is for deploying using AKS.

Follow the steps below to deploy ToolJet on a AKS Kubernetes cluster.

  1. Create an AKS cluster and connect to it to start with the deployement. You can follow the steps as mentioned on the Azure's documentation.

  2. Create k8s deployment

     curl -LO

Make sure to edit the environment variables in the deployment.yaml. We advise to use secrets to setup sensitive information. You can check out the available options here.


If there are self signed HTTPS endpoints that Tooljet needs to connect to, please make sure that NODE_EXTRA_CA_CERTS environment variable is set to the absolute path containing the certificates. You can make use of kubernetes secrets to mount the certificate file onto the containers.

  1. Create k8s service and reserve a static IP and inorder expose it via a service load balancer as mentioned in the doc. You can refer service.yaml.

     curl -LO
  2. Apply YAML configs

     kubectl apply -f deployment.yaml, service.yaml

You will be able to access your ToolJet installation once the pods and services running.

If you want to seed the database with a sample user, please SSH into a pod and run:

npm run db:seed --prefix server

This seeds the database with a default user with the following credentials:
