Configure and deploy Comply in an online environment
The Comply installation process creates a Kubernetes cluster and installs the application on that cluster.
In Puppet Application Manager, upload your Comply license and follow the prompts.
You’ll be guided through the process of setting up SSL certificates, uploading a license, and checking to make sure your infrastructure meets Comply system requirements.Note: The license file is issued by Puppet. If you do not have a license file, contact your Puppet representative. You must also agree to our license agreement. If your licence terms update, for example the expiry date or number of licensed nodes, upload your updated license file to Puppet Application Manager.
To configure your installation, click Config.
In the Hostname field, enter the fully qualified
domain name (FQDN) that you want to use to access Comply.
For example, this could be the name of the node you have installed Comply on. If you choose to use an FQDN that is different from the name of this node, you must configure your domain name system (DNS) to resolve the FQDN to the IP address of the Comply node.
