Configuring for Linux Installation on a Proxy, No Proxy System

If your Linux system uses a proxy server for external traffic and no proxy for local traffic, you must complete the following system configuration and Sisense configuration steps before initializing Sisense on your system.

  • For a single-node system: Configure the node where you plan to deploy Sisense.
  • For a multi-node system: Configure all of the nodes where you plan to deploy Sisense.

To configure the proxy settings:

  1. Log in to the Linux server and enter the following commands to add proxy environment variables to /etc/environment.

    sudo bash -c 'printf -v no_proxy '%s,' {0..255} && echo no_proxy="localhost,svc,node1,$no_proxy" >> /etc/environment'
    sudo bash -c 'echo https_proxy="http://example.proxy.tld:port" >> /etc/environment'
    sudo bash -c 'echo http_proxy="http://example.proxy.tld:port" >> /etc/environment'
    
  2. Enter the following commands to export the proxy environment variables.

    printf -v no_proxy '%s,' {0..255} && export no_proxy="localhost,svc,node1,$no_proxy"
    export http_proxy="http://example.proxy.tld:port"
    export https_proxy="http://example.proxy.tld:port"
    
  3. Now, you must navigate to the directory where you extracted the Sisense tar.gz file.

    cd sisense-[sisense-version]
    
  4. Edit the configuration YAML file by entering the following command.

    vim {installation-folder)/config.yaml
    
  5. Go to the PROXY SETTINGS group, remove the comment (#) tag from the parameters, and configure them. For example:

    http_proxy:"http://example.proxy.tld:port"
    https_proxy:"http://example.proxy.tld:port"
    no_proxy:"localhost,svc,node1,0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23,24,25,26,27,28,29,30,31,32,33,34,35,36,37,38,39,40,41,42,43,44,45,46,47,48,49,50,51,52,53,54,55,56,57,58,59,60,61,62,63,64,65,66,67,68,69,70,71,72,73,74,75,76,77,78,79,80,81,82,83,84,85,86,87,88,89,90,91,92,93,94,95,96,97,98,99,100,101,102,103,104,105,106,107,108,109,110,111,112,113,114,115,116,117,118,119,120,121,122,123,124,125,126,127,128,129,130,131,132,133,134,135,136,137,138,139,140,141,142,143,144,145,146,147,148,149,150,151,152,153,154,155,156,157,158,159,160,161,162,163,164,165,166,167,168,169,170,171,172,173,174,175,176,177,178,179,180,181,182,183,184,185,186,187,188,189,190,191,192,193,194,195,196,197,198,199,200,201,202,203,204,205,206,207,208,209,210,211,212,213,214,215,216,217,218,219,220,221,222,223,224,225,226,227,228,229,230,231,232,233,234,235,236,237,238,239,240,241,242,243,244,245,246,247,248,249,250,251,252,253,254,255,"
    
  6. Save these changes to the configuration YAML file and return to the instructions in Initializing Sisense on Linux.
