StackStorm requires Ubuntu, RHEL, RockyLinux 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 are planning to add the DC Fabric Automation Suite to your system later, you will need additional RAM. Check the DC Fabric Automation Suite System Requirements
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)
redis (6379) or zookeeper (2181, 2888, 3888)
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/RockyLinux/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
RHEL/CentOS: We currently support RHEL/CentOS
8.x. In general, we recommend using the most recent version in that series, but any version may be used. StackStorm is verified on RHEL/RockyLinux
8.xdistributions, but our RPMs should be compatible with other RHEL``8.x`` derivatives, e.g. CentOS 8 Stream.
