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.

  1. 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.

  2. Create a Kubernetes secret with name server. For the minimal setup, ToolJet requires pg_host, pg_db, pg_user, pg_password, secret_key_base & lockbox_key keys in the secret.

Read environment variables reference

  1. Once you have logged into the Openshift developer dashboard click on +Add tab. 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
online yaml editor

Once you have added the files click on create.

:info 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. Navigate to topology tab and use the visual connector to establish the connect between tooljet-deployment and postgresql as shown in the screenshot below.
