StackStorm requires Ubuntu, RHEL or CentOS Linux. It is not supported on any other Linux distributions. The table below lists the supported Linux versions, along with the Vagrant Boxes and Amazon AWS instances we use for testing. See below for more details about our Linux distribution support policy.
If you are installing from ISO, perform a minimal installation. For Ubuntu, use the “Server” variant, and only add OpenSSH Server to the base set of packages. All other dependencies will be automatically added when you install StackStorm.
Please note that only 64-bit architecture is supported.
Amazon AWS AMI
This is the recommended minimum sizing for testing and deploying StackStorm:
If you split your filesystem into multiple partitions and mount points, ensure you have at least
1GB of free space in
/opt. RabbitMQ and MongoDB may not operate correctly without
sufficient free space.
By default, StackStorm and related services use these TCP ports:
nginx (80, 443)
rabbitmq (4369, 5672, 25672)
If any other services are currently using these ports, StackStorm may fail to install or run correctly.
Linux Distribution Support Policy¶
StackStorm only support Ubuntu and RHEL/CentOS Linux distributions. In general, it is supported on the two most recent major supported releases for those distributions. Specifically:
Ubuntu: Current LTS releases are supported. Today this is
Support for Ubuntu
14.04has been removed, as it is now End of Life. StackStorm 3.0 is the last release that supports Ubuntu
RHEL/CentOS: We currently support RHEL/CentOS
7.x. In general, we recommend using the most recent version in that series, but any version may be used.
We are now beginning testing with RHEL
8.0. We anticipate adding support with StackStorm 3.2. When we add that support, we will remove support for RHEL
6.x. We expect that StackStorm 3.1 will be the last version that supports RHEL
