git clone

Pull the Containers and Start

cd boodskap

docker-compose pull


Depends upon your machine configuration and internet bandwidth speed, the above step may take about 15 minutes to several hours


You can find the Boodskap Platform container ID by

docker ps | grep boodskap01 you may find something similar to the below

7c0473f0848e   boodskapiot/platform:5.2.0-00   "/bin/sh -c 'exec /u…"   About an hour ago   Up 2 minutes       1883/tcp, 2021/tcp, 5151/udp, 5151/tcp, 5555/udp, 6161/tcp, 6161/udp, 7171/tcp, 8083/tcp, 7171/udp, 8181/tcp, 40000-40100/tcp, 8181/udp,>18080/tcp   boodskap-boodskap01-1

Now you can see the container logs by typing

docker logs -f your-container-id

Replace your-container-id with something similar to 7c0473f0848e

Wait until you see something similar to the below

Quick Tips

  • The default admin domain (tenant) is not meant to be used for any development except admin purpose
  • When you install the license, a new tenant will be created and the email id supplied during license generation will be set as default domain administrator
  • You can login to the newly created domain by logging as admin user and
    • Home -> Login As -> Re-Enter the admin password -> Click on the Login Action
  • Passwords can be changed by
    • Drop Down Profile Icon -> Edit Profile -> Change Password



  • On Premise installations won't support creation of additional domains (tenants)
  • You can Contact Us for
    • New domain license keys
    • Additional CPU resources exceeding 24 cores
