Installing an API node¶
- You need to manually install one or several API Nodes:
If you want to create a static infrastructure in the API Deployer. See Concepts for more information.
If you don’t plan on using API Deployer
If you plan to use Kubernetes-based infrastructures in the API Deployer, you do not need to install any API node. Installation will be fully managed.
The process of installing a DSS API node instance is very similar to a regular DSS installation. Requirements and Installing a new DSS instance thus remain mostly valid.
Unpack the kit like for a design node.
Then from the user account which will be used to run the DSS API node, enter the following command:
dataiku-dss-VERSION/installer.sh -t api -d DATA_DIR -p PORT -l LICENSE_FILE
DATA_DIR is the location of the data directory that you want to use. If the directory already exists, it must be empty.
PORT is the base TCP port.
LICENSE_FILE is your DSS license file.
In short, all installation steps are the same as for a design node, you simply need to add
-t api to the
Using the API node requires a specific DSS license. Please contact Dataiku for more information.
Dependencies handling, enabling startup at boot time, and starting the API node, work exactly as for the DSS design node.
