Launch Dataverse on GCL

Deploying from Launcher

Deploying Dataverse

  1. Choose a name for your Dataverse deployment
  2. Select an appropriate Zone for your deployment
  3. Select an appropriately sized machine for your deployment with a minimum of 4 cores. If using BYOL this will need to match the number of cores that your license is valid for.
  4. Click Deploy
Deployment Complete

Deployment Complete

Watch your Dataverse deployment complete. You will now see the following information:

  1. Site Address – the publicly accessible URL for accessing Dataverse
  2. Admin Username and Password.

Now would be a good time to go grab a tea or coffee. The solution will take 5 – 10 minutes to complete setup in the background. When Setup is complete, following the link to the Dataverse instance should present you with the Dataverse login page.

You will need to ensure your GCP Project has a firewall rule enabling traffic on port 8080 to reach your Dataverse instance. See here for more info.
