After Installation

Created: May 19, 2021, Updated: March 15, 2022

These are the steps you probably should take right after installing your Bizzflow instance.

Test everything works

To see everything went well, you should:

Check the log and download the artifacts

You should receive a link to the installation job log via e-mail to the notification e-mail specified in the setup guide. The log should say whether the job has failed or succeeded. If the job failed and the log does not make any sense to you, please check our Troubleshooting section.

If your installation succeeded, your first action should be downloading the setup artifacts, as the artifacts will only be available for download for one week. After this period, they will be deleted.

If you do not download the artifacts within the week, you will no be able to access your Airflow instance for maintenance and destroy the resources created by the installer.

The combination of .tfvars and tfstate files can be used to alter, repair or completely destroy your Bizzflow installation along with all cloud resources. Please consult Terraform official documentation on how to use them.

Visit the Airflow UI

On the log page, you should find the IP address that can be used to visit your Bizzflow’s UI. Simply copy this IP address to your browser and Airflow webserver should appear. If you didn’t specify differently during installation, the default credentials should be:

user:     bizzflow
password: wolfzzib

This leads us to another step…

Change the default user’s password

In order to secure your Bizzflow instance, you should reset your password right after the installation. In Airflow, log in (if you haven’t already) and click Bizzflow Administrator in the top right corner of the screen and select Profile. Then find the button Reset my password and click it. Follow instructions to change the password.

Run a DAG

If you want to check your Bizzflow really works, you may try running the demo extractor 20_Extractor_ex-mysql_demo-classicmodels. After it has finished, check the Storage Console by visiting http://{your-airflow-ip}/storage in the browser. You should see two kexes were created by the extractor task.

Learn the ways of the… Bizzflow

you are on this council but we do not grant you the rank of master
Listen to the Bizzflow guide, young Padawan

You may already feel the Force (Bizz)flowing through you, but there are still things you need to learn before you become the true Data Master. You need to learn to control your anger towards dirty data and embrace your fears of failing orchestrations in order to bring balance to… the Force. Sorry, I just ran out of puns.
