Jama Connect User Guide

Installing Jama Connect

Jama Connect is a Linux-based application that runs on Docker containers and uses Replicated software to "orchestrate" deploying applications. The process of installing Jama Connect includes installing and configuring Docker and Replicated. These tasks deliver the components necessary to run Jama Connect.

Components and what they do

Docker containers — A standalone executable package of software that includes code, runtime, system tools, system libraries, and settings. See https://www.docker.com/resources/what-container for details.

Replicated — A container-based platform for easily deploying cloud native applications inside customers' environments to provide greater security and control. The Admin Console is the interface for installing and administering the Jama Connect application. See https://www.replicated.com/ for details.

Jama Connect license — The license included in your Welcome email. You upload the license to your application server, then begin installing Jama Connect.

  • Jama Connect users access Jama Connect by browsing to the instance URL (https://jamainstanceurl.customer.com/).

  • Replicated administrators browse to the Admin Console by browsing to the same instance URL, but on port 8800 (https://jamainstanceurl.customer.com:8800/).

  • Replicated updates Jama Connect and the license via API calls for internet-enabled environments. Our airgap option removes the need for remote API calls.

  • Any content added to your Jama Connect instance is stored in the database. Uploaded artifacts, such as attachments and report templates, are stored in the file system in the /data directory.
