Get started

Run RocketBI locally:

To try out RocketBI on your machine, the best way is using our pre-built Docker images.


  • docker engine 19.0+
  • docker-compose 2.0+

1. Prepare:



Edit .clickhouse.env with your clickhouse server's host, port, username, password and cluster name.

NOTE: If you're installing RocketBI on the same host with your clickhouse-server, please use as your CLICKHOUSE_HOST instead of localhost for docker to resolve hosts correctly.

1.2. (Optional) Install sample clickhouse:

If you don't have clickhouse access at the moment, you can still try RocketBI by installing our sample clickhouse instance by running the following commands:



cd sample_clickhouse_cluster/

docker-compose up -d


cd -

If the commands run successfully, you will have access to an instance of clickhouse cluster locally with the following information:


2. Start RocketBI:

docker-compose up -d

3. Explore your data:

  • Open browser and go to localhost:5050 to enter the web UI.
  • Login to RocketBI with this default account:
username: [email protected]
password: 123456
  • Begin by creating a dashboard and using drag-n-drop tool to explore your data.

Build from source:

Server services:


  • java 8
  • maven 3
  • mysql 5.7
  • ssdb 1.9.9

There are 3 services that RocketBI relies on: bi-service, caas-service and schema-service.
To build a service:

cd <service_dir>

# install needed libraries:

# build source:
mvn package

# config mysql and ssdb host/port (default port for mysql is localhost:3306 and for ssdb is localhost:8888):
vi conf/local.conf

# start service locally:
./runservice start local

Services will be start at specific port specify in conf/local.conf file. For example, the default http port for bi-service is 8080, to test if
bi-service is up and running, run:

curl localhost:8080/ping

To stop a service, run:

./runservice stop
