Documentation & Use Cases


  • Docker
  • Docker Compose
  • License for FRINX ODL (you can find a trial license in the "Installation Guide" section below)

min 16GB RAM & min 4 vCPUs with normal startup, and 5GB RAM & 2 vCPUs with minimal config has been successfully tested for POCs and demos.

Tested on

  • Ubuntu 16.04 / 18.04 /
  • docker 18.03.1-ce, v18.06.1-ce
  • docker-compose 1.21.2, v1.22.0

Installation preparation


To install the Ubuntu repository version, execute the following command

sudo apt-get install

Check the version with

docker --version

You'll see output similar to this:

Docker version 18.06.1-ce, build e68fc7a

Docker Compose

To install Docker Compose, at first, install the curl command

Type the following apt or apt-get command:

sudo apt install curl

After installing curl, use following command to get Docker Compose:

sudo curl -L "$(uname -s)-$(uname -m)" -o 	/usr/local/bin/docker-compose

Note: You can download the latest version of Docker Composer after checking Release Notes and finding the latest version, e.g. 1.23.2. Then you can edit the download link release version number to get the latest release.

Installation Guide

Trial license

We offer a one month trial license. No signup needed! License token:


Get the project

Clone the repository:

git clone

Navigate into the project folder:

cd FRINX-machine


The installation script is in the FRINX-machine folder.

The installation script does the following things:

  • Updates project submodules (e.g. conductor)
  • Copies license token
  • Pulls conductor project parts from maven repository
  • Builds conductor-server .jar file
  • Pulls and creates docker images
  • Creates external volumes for data persistence

We recommend to run the install script as regular user and not as sudo, so all files (e.g. netinfra utils) can be edited by the regular user later.

Installation with the trial license token:

./ -l 0e57a786f7dbd27fa77db684cf3b234d6f23ed784e52cbfb107fd4317ba2646c66f7a141b0e823946d8f9d956852c95d33dc82f945779b1c9969049e94935b2a


The startup script can be found in the FRINX-machine folder. Here is what it does:

  • Creates the docker containers from the images and starts them.
  • Imports workflow definitions.

Docker needs privileged mode, so should be executed with sudo. Otherwise it will prompt for password while executing.

sudo ./

Min 16GB RAM & min 4 vCPUs with normal startup are recommended.

Minimal startup
sudo ./ -m

Starts application with lower RAM usage. Min 5GB RAM & min 2 vCPUs with minimal startup are recommended.


The script in the FRINX-machine folder:

  • Stops and removes containers
  • Does not remove external volumes

Using docker, also needs privileged mode:

sudo ./teardown

Removal of external volumes

Caution all data will be lost!

To remove the external volumes use:

sudo docker volume rm redis_data elastic_data

Docker expects external volumes to exist when starting the containers. They can be created with:

sudo docker volume create --name=redis_data
sudo docker volume create --name=elastic_data


Once started open your browser and open the following GUIs:

  • localhost:5000 --> FRINX workflow GUI
  • localhost:5601 --> Kibana (for log and inventory access)
  • localhost:8888 --> FRINXit (CLI for FRINX ODL)
