Overview

Installing and running Appian on Kubernetes requires a variety of artifacts, including Helm charts, container images, and binaries. This page details how to download and install them.

Generate temporary registry credentials

Temporary credentials for Appian's container registry can be generated from the SUPPORT page of the MyAppian site on Appian Community:

  1. Click DOWNLOADS > PLATFORM > LOW-CODE PLATFORM.
  2. Select Appian 23.1.
  3. Underneath Installers in the Downloads pane, click Show Kubernetes Files > Generate Container Registry Credentials.
  4. Select the region nearest your geographic location.
  5. Copy the generated temporary registry login password.

Appian operator Helm chart

The Appian operator Helm chart can be pulled from Appian's container registry.

Note:  You must be running Helm v3.8.0 or greater to pull the chart. You can check what version of Helm you have by running the following command:

1
helm version

Login to the registry

To login to the container registry to pull Helm charts, run

1
helm registry login --username AWS --password <PASSWORD> 937620572175.dkr.ecr.<REGION>.amazonaws.com

where <REGION> is the region you selected and <PASSWORD> is the password you generated in Generate temporary registry credentials.

Pull the Helm chart

To pull the Helm chart from the container registry, run

1
helm pull oci://937620572175.dkr.ecr.<REGION>.amazonaws.com/helm-charts/appian-operator --version <APPIAN_OPERATOR_VERSION>

where <REGION> is the region you selected in Generate temporary registry credentials and <APPIAN_OPERATOR_VERSION> is the version of the Appian operator.

Appian operator and Appian images

The Appian operator and Appian images can be pulled from Appian's container registry.

Note:  You must be running Docker Engine 20.10 or greater to pull the images. You can check what version of Docker Engine you have by running the following command:

1
docker version --format '{{.Server.Version}}'

Login to the registry

To login to the container registry to pull images, run

1
docker login --username AWS --password <PASSWORD> 937620572175.dkr.ecr.<REGION>.amazonaws.com

where <REGION> is the region you selected and <PASSWORD> is the password you generated in Generate temporary registry credentials.

Pull the images

To pull an image from the container registry, run

1
docker pull 937620572175.dkr.ecr.<REGION>.amazonaws.com/appian/<COMPONENT>:<COMPONENT_VERSION>

where <REGION> is the region you selected in Generate temporary registry credentials and <COMPONENT> and <COMPONENT_VERSION> are the component - and version of the component - of the image you wish to pull. Valid components include appian-operator, zookeeper, kafka, search-server, data-server, service-manager, webapp, and httpd.

Push the images to your registry

You'll need to push the images to your organization's container registry. For each image, run

1

3
docker tag \
  937620572175.dkr.ecr.<REGION>.amazonaws.com/appian/<COMPONENT>:<COMPONENT_VERSION> \
  <REGISTRY_HOSTNAME>/appian/<COMPONENT>:<COMPONENT_VERSION>

and

1
docker push <REGISTRY_HOSTNAME>/appian/<COMPONENT>:<COMPONENT_VERSION>

where <REGION> is the region you selected in Generate temporary registry credentials, <REGISTRY_HOSTNAME> is the hostname of your organization's registry, and <COMPONENT> and <COMPONENT_VERSION> are the component - and version of the component - of the image you wish to push.

Note:  Pushing the images to your organization's registry is only necessary if installing and running Appian on Kubernetes in a remote cluster (i.e. not Docker Desktop, minikube, etc).

Migration Tool

The binaries for the Migration Tool can be downloaded from the SUPPORT page of the MyAppian site on Appian Community:

  1. Click DOWNLOADS > PLATFORM > LOW-CODE PLATFORM.
