Overview

JFrog Mission control currently supports Debian 8.x and Ubuntu 16.x.

NOTE: You should only install Mission Control on the supported versions of Debian or Ubuntu specified above as it has not been validated to work on higher versions.

System Library Requirements

Mission control needs the following libraries to be present as run-time dependencies. Please ensure these are available before you begin installation.

  • net-tools

When you install without thesedependancies, the installer displays an error indicating that some dependencies are missing, prompting you to install along with the install command. 


Installation Instructions

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.

Installing with the Mission Control Installer

Once you have  Mission Control, installing it is very straightforward:

  1. Extract the contents of the compressed file

    tar -xvf jfmc-deb-<version>.tar.gz
  2. Run the installer

    We strongly recommend invoking Mission Control scripts with the bash interpreter.

    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.

  3. The log file for the installation will be in a file installJFMC-deb.<timestamp>.log. 

  4. A control file is created as part of the installation. Start Mission control using this file

    /opt/jfrog/mission-control/scripts/jfmc.sh start
