JFrog Mission Control can be installed using the Mission Control installer, or by extracting a ZIP file. The installer is completely self-contained and installs all the components that Mission Control needs while the ZIP file installation assumes that you have Elastic Search and MongoDB already installed and are managing those separately.
Once you have Mission Control, installing it is very straightforward:
Extract the contents of the compressed file
tar -xvf jfmc-deb-<version>.tar.gz
Run the installer
We strongly recommend invoking Mission Control scripts with the
cd jfmc-deb-<version> ./installJFMC-deb.sh
JFrog Mission Control uses several databases for different features of its operation. Until version 2.1, Mission Control installed an instance of all of these databases dedicated for its own use.
From version 2.1, Mission Control gives you the option of using your own MongoDB or Elasticsearch databases if you have these already installed and in use in your organization.
When you run the installer, it will issue prompts asking if you want to install Mission Control using it'sowninternal databases, or if you prefer to use your own external databases.
For details on how to respond to these prompts, please refer to Using External Databases.
The log file for the installation will be in a file installJFMC-deb.<timestamp>.log.
A control file is created as part of the installation. Start Mission control using this file
To install on Debian or Ubuntu using the Mission Control standalone ZIP file installation, please refer to Linux ZIP File Installation.
