Installing Sisense on Linux

Refer to Checking the Prerequisites before installation.

To install Sisense:

  1. Backup the Sisense servers prior to installation, for rollback purposes.
  2. In Linux, create a sudo-enabled user account.

    A sudo-enabled user account is required for each server Sisense will be deployed on:

    sudo -l -U <installation user>

    Check to see user has the correct rights. The user must have the rights to run ALL as shown below:


    It is recommended you use a user that has a UID/GID of 1000. Run the following command to check that the user is assigned with a UID/GID of 1000:

    id -u <installation user>

    If you need to use a user with a UID/GID other than 1000, see Installing RKE with a Specified UID.

  3. Log in to an SSH session with the installation user you created.
  4. Navigate to the directory that you will install from.

    cd sisense-installation-files

  5. Deployment

    Sisense supports four types of deployment:

    • Single-node
    • Cluster (multi-node)
    • OpenShift
    • Cloud-based Kubernetes

    Contact your Sisense Customer Success Manager to receive the link to the latest Linux archive file. The archive includes five configuration files, one for each of the deployment types and a generic config.yaml file that contains all of the parameters for each deployment.
