Chapter 3. Deploying a trial environment

You can deploy a trial (evaluation) Red Hat Decision Manager environment. It consists of Decision Central for authoring or managing services and Decision Server for test execution of services.

This environment does not include permanent storage. Assets that you create or modify in a trial environment are not saved.

This environment is intended for test and demonstration access. It supports cross-origin resource sharing (CORS). This means that Decision Server endpoints can be accessed using a browser when other resources on the page are provided by other servers. Decision Server endpoints are normally intended for REST calls, but browser access can be needed in some demonstration configurations.

The procedure is minimal. There are no required settings and all passwords are set to a single value (the default password is RedHat).

To deploy a single authoring environment, use the rhdm72-trial-ephemeral.yaml template file. You can extract this file from the product deliverable file. You can download the file from the Software Downloads page.


  1. Use one of the following methods to deploy the template:

    • In the OpenShift Web UI, select Add to Project → Import YAML / JSON and then select or paste the rhdm72-trial-ephemeral.yaml file. In the Add Template window, ensure Process the template is selected and click Continue.
    • To use the OpenShift command line console, prepare the following command line:

      oc new-app -f <template-path>/rhdm72-trial-ephemeral.yaml

      In this command line, replace <template-path> with the path to the downloaded template file.

  2. Optionally, set any parameters as described in the template. A typical trial deployment requires only the following parameter:

  3. Complete the creation of the environment, depending on the method that you are using:

    • In the OpenShift Web UI, click Create.

      • A This will create resources that may have security or project behavior implications pop-up message might be displayed. If it is displayed, click Create Anyway.
    • Complete and run the command line.
