Setup Local Environment

There are two different ways to setup your local environment:

  1. Recommended Docker+PCFDev Instructions
  2. Manual Instructions


The dashboard is continuously deployed by CircleCI. To deploy manually:

Bootstrap Deployment Spaces

In each space that you plan on deploying, you need to create a user-provided-service.


# Create user provided service with config
# See for all env variables
cf create-user-provided-service dashboard-ups -p @<(cat <<EOF
  "CONSOLE_CLIENT_ID": "your-client-id",
  "CONSOLE_CLIENT_SECRET": "your-client-secret",
  "CSRF_KEY": "$(openssl rand -hex 32)",
  "SESSION_AUTHENTICATION_KEY": "$(openssl rand -hex 64)",
  "SESSION_ENCRYPTION_KEY": "$(openssl rand -hex 32)",
  "SMTP_HOST": "",
  "SMTP_PORT": "25",
  "SMTP_USER": "username",
  "SMTP_PASS": "password",
  "SMTP_FROM": "",

Create a Client with UAAC

  • Make sure UAAC is installed.
  • Target your UAA server. uaac target <>
  • Login with your current UAA account. uaac token client get <your admin account> -s <your uaa admin password>
  • Create client account:
uaac client add <your-client-id> \
 --authorities "uaa.none scim.invite cloud_controller.admin" \
 --authorized_grant_types authorization_code,client_credentials,refresh_token \
 --scope cloud_controller.admin,,cloud_controller.write,openid, \
 --autoapprove true \
-s <your-client-secret>
  • Unable to create an account still? Troubleshoot here


This project uses CircleCI.

  • You will need to set up the credentials to deploy to the dashboard-prod and dashboard-stage spaces.
    • In both spaces run: cf create-service cloud-gov-service-account space-deployer dashboard-deployer.
    • You will get the link for that space's credentials by running cf service dashboard-deployer.
    • You will need to set these secret variables in the CircleCI UI.
      • CF_USERNAME_PROD_SPACE - The username for the dashboard-prod deployer
      • CF_PASSWORD_PROD_SPACE - The password for the dashboard-prod deployer
      • CF_USERNAME_STAGE_SPACE - The username for the dashboard-stage deployer
      • CF_PASSWORD_STAGE_SPACE - The password for the dashboard-stage deployer
  • If you fork this project for your own use, you will need to use the CircleCI CLI UI to set the variables. (If you're forking just to make a pull request, there's no need to do this.)

Optional features

Some features can be enabled by supplying the right environment configuration.

New Relic Browser

If you have New Relic Browser, you can set your New Relic ID and Browser license key. These are public and can be set in your manifest file. Note that your Browser license key is different than your New Relic License Key (which should be treated as confidential).

# manifest.yml
  NEW_RELIC_ID: 12345

Google Analytics

If you have a GA site configured, specify your tracking ID as GA_TRACKING_ID in your environment.

# manifest.yml
  GA_TRACKING_ID: UA-123456-11
