Before You Start with Data Gateway

Download and install the required software.

  • Download the latest version of Oracle Analytics Cloud Data Gateway from Oracle Technology Network.

  • To upgrade an earlier server installation of Data Gateway on Linux, install the new version of Data Gateway into the existing installation folder on each machine where you've deployed Data Gateway. See Install Data Gateway.
  • (Optional) If you are creating remote connections for analyses and dashboards, download and install the latest Developer Client Tool for Oracle Analytics Cloud from Oracle Technology Network on a Windows machine. If you have a visualization-only deployment (for example, Oracle Analytics Cloud Professional Edition), you don't need Developer Client Tool.

  • If you want to install the legacy version of Remote Data Connector, follow the instructions in Install the Legacy Remote Data Connector.
  • If you're deploying Data Gateway on Linux, unless you're performing a silent installation, make sure you have an X server set up with the correct DISPLAY variable setting.
