Installing Cosmos React UI by using Docker

Suggest edit
Updated on February 7, 2022

Explore the latest React-based run-time environment, which improves performance and responsiveness, and offers a revised set of user-friendly view and portal authoring tools. You can use Docker to install the Cosmos React UI framework in your on-premises development environment.

Note: You do not have to install Constellation manually if your environment meets any of the following criteria:
  • Pega Platform is hosted on Pega Cloud services.
  • You have a Pega hosted lab system.
  • Your IT organization has already installed Constellation as a corporate wide service, possibly at the same time as they installed Infinity. This is the expected deployment type. Installing Constellation as a single corporate wide service requires network and security awareness.

In these cases, the Constellation engine is already a part of your development environment, and you only need to enable the framework for your applications. No Constellation install is necessary, you just need the URL for the Constellation service:

  • Pega Cloud: The regionally correct URL for the Pega Cloud Constellation service is embedded into Infinity during Infinity deployment.
  • Pega lab system: Your technical support contact provides the correct URL for the Pega hosted Constellation service.
  • IT organization installed Constellation as a single corporate wide service: This group provides you with the Constellation service URL.
Before you begin: Prepare for installation:
  1. In a terminal window, pull the Cosmos React UI container by entering docker pull pega-docker.downloads.pega.com/constellationui/service:8.5.3-rc-latest.

  2. Set the SSL certificate and key for HTTPS by entering docker run -v /<path to folder with key certificate>:/host_folder -p 3000:3000 --name <container name> local/constellationui/service httpsKey=<SSL key> httpsCert=<SSL certificate> logLevel=<log type>.

    • <log type> is the type of log that the build produces. You can select one of the following modes: debug, info, warn, error.
  3. Install the service by entering docker run -p <host port>:<container port> --name <container name><container URL address> port=<port number><log type>.

    The variables have the following values:
    • <host port> is the port number of the host. The default value is 3000.
    • <port number> is the number of the port on which React UI listens. The number must match the <container port>.
    For example: docker run -p 3000:3000 --name constellation-service downloads.pega.com port=3000 info
