Deploying ToolJet on Openshift
You should setup a PostgreSQL database manually to be used by ToolJet.
Follow the steps below to deploy ToolJet on Openshift.
Setup a PostgreSQL database ToolJet uses a postgres database as the persistent storage for storing data related to users and apps. We do not have plans to support other databases such as MySQL.
Create a Kubernetes secret with name
server. For the minimal setup, ToolJet requires
lockbox_keykeys in the secret.
Read environment variables reference
- Once you have logged into the Openshift developer dashboard click on
+Addtab. Select import YAML from the local machine.
When entering one or more files and use --- to separate each definition
Copy paste depolyment.yaml to the online editor
Copy paste the service.yaml to the online editor
Once you have added the files click on create.
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.
- Navigate to topology tab and use the visual connector to establish the connect between tooljet-deployment and postgresql as shown in the screenshot below.

If you intend to use this feature, you'd have to set up and deploy PostgREST server which helps querying ToolJet Database. Please follow the instructions here for additional environment variables configuration to be done.
