Various Delphix Dynamic Data Platform Workshops and associated automation artifacts like Packer templates, Terraform blueprints, Golang, etc


This repo consists of some standard OS + Database templates configured ready to use with Delphix (located in the packer-templates folder):

  • delphix-centos6.9-oracle11.2.0.4.json
  • delphix-centos7-ansible-base.json
  • delphix-centos7-oracle-
  • delphix-centos7-oracle-
  • delphix-centos7-postgres-9.6.json
  • delphix-ubuntu-bionic-guacamole.json

There are also some bespoke Packer templates used for specific scenarios:

  • delphix-centos7-daf-app.json
  • delphix-centos7-kitchen_sink.json
  • delphix-centos7-tooling-base.json
  • delphix-tcw-jumpbox.json
  • delphix-tcw-oracle12-source.json
  • delphix-tcw-oracle12-target.json
  • delphix-tcw-tooling-oracle.json
  • delphix-toolchain-dafdb-pgsql-source.json

The Oracle templates requires access to the Oracle binaries placed in an AWS s3 bucket.

Go Examples

The go directory contains examples of interacting with the Delphix Dynamic Data Platform using golang. The examples in that directory are purpose-built to be used in the workshops contained within this repo.


Toolchain Workshop

Please see the documentation for the Toolchain Workshop

Base Templates

  1. Clone this repository
  2. Navigate into the cloned directory in a terminal
  3. Copy the .example.env to .environment.env

These templates depend on Packer and Ansible existing in your path. If you are running a Mac, then the easiest way is to install via homebrew. After cloning this repo, install the required Ansible dependencies.

brew install ansible packer git
git clone
cd base-templates
cp .example.env .example.env
ansible-galaxy install -r roles/X_requirements.yml



  1. Edit the .environment.env file in the root directory of the cloned repo

User Variables

  1. AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID - The AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID environment variable
  2. AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY - The AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY environment variable
  3. AWS_REGION - The region packer will build the temporary infrastructure for the AMI
  4. ORACLE_BINARIES_ROOT_URL - The URL where the AWS instance can retrieve the Oracle binaries during the packer build (For Oracle templates, only)
  5. AWS_VPC_ID - The VPC ID from the region that packer will use
  6. AWS_SUBNET_ID - The subnet ID from the VPC that packer will use

The below values are arbitrary, and only for tagging resources

  1. AWS_EXPIRATION - The date this AMI is expired, i.e. "2037-07-01" or "never"
  2. AWS_OWNER - The name of the person who owns the AMI, i.e. "Adam Bowen"
  3. AWS_PROJECT - The name of the project that the AMI belongs, or came, from
  4. AWS_COSTCENTER - The name of the cost center, if applicable


  1. source the .environment.env file
  2. run packer against the template you want to use:
source .example.env
packer build delphix-centOS6.9-oracle11.2.0.4.json
packer build delphix-centOS6.9-oracle11.2.0.4.json 
cent69-Oracle11204 output will be in this color.

==> cent69-Oracle11204: Force Deregister flag found, skipping prevalidating AMI Name
    cent69-Oracle11204: Found Image ID: ami-8b44f234
==> cent69-Oracle11204: Creating temporary keypair: packer_5ad55a87-66df-e148-9439-a7bd06aa04fb

==> cent69-Oracle11204: Authorizing access to port 22 from in the temporary security group...
==> cent69-Oracle11204: Launching a source AWS instance...
==> cent69-Oracle11204: Adding tags to source instance
    cent69-Oracle11204: Adding tag: "Name": "Packer Builder"
    cent69-Oracle11204: Instance ID: i-0434f9b2e3a90c0c3
==> cent69-Oracle11204: Waiting for instance (i-0434f9b2e3a90c0c3) to become ready...
==> cent69-Oracle11204: Waiting for SSH to become available...

Second Example:

source .dafdb-source
packer build delphix-toolchain-dafdb-source.json
packer build delphix-toolchain-dafdb-source.json
delphix-toolchain-dafdb-source output will be in this color.

==> delphix-toolchain-dafdb-source: Force Deregister flag found, skipping prevalidating AMI Name
    delphix-toolchain-dafdb-source: Found Image ID: ami-090c2433423df7c1b
==> delphix-toolchain-dafdb-source: Creating temporary keypair: packer_5c24fd34-75a9-e10e-afa8-5784ac498ae2
==> delphix-toolchain-dafdb-source: Creating temporary security group for this instance: packer_5c24fd36-f5cc-8180-51b5-1bc18409d591
