Sider Enterprise runs on Docker, and it requires MySQL, Redis, MinIO, and GitHub Enterprise Server. Also, you should put a load balancer in front of Sider Enterprise. Before the installation of Sider Enterprise, you should first set up these services.

Get Docker Image#

We provide Sider Enterprise as a Docker image for our customers. After you contract with Sider Corporation, we send you a credential, with which you can get the Sider Enterprise Docker image.

To get the Sider Enterprise Docker image, you need to install AWS CLI. And run the following command to configure the credential.

# Configure your AWS credentials and regionaws configure --profile sider-enterprise set region us-east-1aws configure --profile sider-enterprise

Next, run the following commands with your credentials and the Sider Enterprise Docker image tag, and you can get the Docker image.

# Log inaws ecr get-login-password --profile sider-enterprise | \  docker login --username AWS --password-stdin
# Pull imagedocker pull{tag}
# Log outdocker logout

If your organization requires your machine to access via an HTTP proxy server, you should configure Docker to use it. See Configure Docker to use a proxy server for more details.

Prepare Environment Variables for Sider Enterprise#

Sider Enterprise is configured with environment variables. We recommend creating an environment variables file to reuse among sideci-web and sideci-worker.

This is an example of the environment variables file located in /etc/sider-env. Of course, you can put the file anywhere, but make sure this file should be readable only to specific users.


These parameters depend on MySQL, Redis, MinIO, and GitHub Enterprise Server configurations, so please be careful to correctly write the parameters. See Sider Enterprise Configuration

Run Sider Enterprise#

Now, you can run Sider Enterprise on your host. First, you have to run the following command to set up the database.

docker run --env-file /etc/sider-env --rm \{tag} \  bundle exec rails db:setup

After that, you can run the Sider Enterprise services like these commands (See Operation for more details):

docker run --detach \  --restart=always \  --env-file=/etc/sider-env \  --publish=80:3000 \{tag} \  bundle exec puma
docker run --detach \  --restart=always \  --env-file=/etc/sider-env \  --volume=/var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock:ro \{tag} \  bundle exec sidekiq
