Note: this option is suggested for testing purposes. If you intend to run the Proxy in production, it is strongly recommended to install it in your production cluster (see instructions above).

Download the Proxy and Providers

Choose your architecture and download the files. Keep them in a single folder (simply unzip the downloaded file).

Generate a Proxy API Token in the Studio

In order for the Proxy to talk to the Fiberplane Studio successfully it needs to be successfully authorized. This step will generate a Proxy API Token that will be needed later.
  1. Go to your Fiberplane Settings page.
  1. Click + New Proxy to register a proxy with a name that identifies the cluster you will install it into (for example, "Production"). This will generate and display a Proxy API Token that the proxy will use to authenticate with the Fiberplane Studio.
  1. Copy the Proxy API Token generated in Step 2 for the next step.

Create a data_sources.yaml file

Create a data_sources.yaml configuration file in the same folder as the Proxy binary. Using the format below add the data sources you want to connect Fiberplane with:
# data_sources.yaml # # Replace the following line with the name of the data source - name: prometheus-prod description: Prometheus (Production) providerType: prometheus config: # Replace the following line with your Prometheus URL url: http://prometheus

Run the Proxy

Run the Proxy executable passing in the previously created token as an argument.
./proxy --token <PROXY_API_TOKEN>
Once you complete your Proxy setup, your data sources linked in the Proxy configuration should be recognized by the Studio - you can verify this again by going to the Settings > Data Sources screen.👇
