Install on an Ubuntu box
This article takes you step by step through the installation of the Devo Relay on a machine running Ubuntu. We install the Relay using a .deb package that resides in Devo public repository.
The hostname of the machine on which you install the relay must not contain dots.
Before you begin
Make sure you can provide a machine with the following requirements:
Ensure that the Devo Relay can access the following resources:
For USA users:
For EU users:
These are the ports used by the Devo In-house Relay:
These ports should not be used by any other services.
You should have the API Key for your Devo domain handy when you start this process. To copy the API key, log in to the domain using the Devo web application, then go to the Access Keys tab in Administration → Credentials.
Installing the Devo relay
You must have Python installed before starting the relay installation process. In case you don't have it, run the following command:
Import the Devo repository public key:
Create the devo.list file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ with the following contents:
Update the resources list.
Install the relay package with this command:
This launches the configuration utility.
The utility takes you through the steps required to set up the secure connection with the Devo Cloud for your region.
First, select the cloud region your Devo domain resides in, then press Enter.
If you select Manual to configure a private cloud location, additional steps request the following information before proceeding.
- Your Devo web application URL (i.e.)
- IP address of your Devo endpoint
- Port to send to on your Devo endpoint
Now enter a name for the new relay. This is not the hostname; it's the relay name that will appear in the Devo web application in Administration → Relays.
The relay name can contain a maximum of 50 characters and must not contain periods. You can use underscores and hyphens but other special characters are not allowed.
Now enter the API Key for the Devo domain to which you will be forwarding events.
Go to Administration → Credentials in the Devo web application to copy the API Key.
Click Yes if the relay requires a proxy to reach the internet. If you do, you can enter the proxy address in the next screen. Otherwise, click No.
- Now you can activate the relay. Go to Administration → Relays and click the Activate button that appears in the new relay's row in the Relay list.
To confirm that the relay is operating correctly, follow our procedure to send test events and make sure they are saved in your Devo domain.
You can now start sending information from your data sources to the new Devo Relay and create the relay rules for event processing.
Reconfiguring the relay
To relaunch the configuration utility at any time after the installation, use the command:
