Zato installation under Vagrant


  • Vagrant, any version

Installation steps

  • Get the Zato Vagrantfile:
mkdir -p ~/zato-vagrant && cd ~/zato-vagrant
curl \ | \
  • Deploy Zato in Vagrant:
vagrant up
  • Access the virtual machine using ssh:
vagrant ssh
sudo su - zato
  • Retrieve your dynamically generated password for Zato Dashboard:
vagrant ssh -c 'cat /opt/zato/web_admin_password'

That concludes the process - a Dashboard instance is running on http://localhost:8183 and you can log into it with the username 'admin' using the password printed in the terminal above.

Environment variables

Dedicated environment variables can be used to fine-tune the resulting installation. If any is missing, a default value will be automatically generated.
