  5. Install Postman to run digit bootstrap scripts

Run Deployer

Once all the deployments configs are ready, run the command given below. Input the necessary details as prompted on the screen and the interactive installer will take care of the rest.

Run the egov-deployer golang script from the DIGIT-Devops repo.

root@ip:# cd DIGIT-DevOps/deploy-as-code/deployer

  • If you do not have your domain yet, you can edit the host file entries and map the nginx-ingress-service load balancer id like below

    • When you find it, add the following lines to the host file, save and close it.

    • aws-load-balancer-id

  • If you have a GoDaddy account or similar and a DNS records edit access you can map the load balancer id to desired DNS. Create a cname record with the load balancer ID and domain.
