Third-Party Software

Before performing a demo deployment, you must obtain non-ForgeRock software and install it on your local computer.

ForgeRock recommends that you install third-party software using Homebrew on macOS and Linux[1] .

The versions listed in the following tables have been validated for deploying the ForgeRock Identity Platform and building custom Docker images for it. Earlier and later versions will probably work. If you want to try using versions that are not in the tables, it is your responsibility to validate them.

Install the following third-party software:

Software Version Homebrew package

Python 3

3.9.6

python

Kubernetes client (kubectl)

1.21.2

kubectl

Kubernetes context switcher (kubectx)

0.9.3

kubectx

Kustomize

4.2.0

kustomize

Azure Command Line Interface

2.25.0

azure-cli

If you plan to use the CDK to create custom Docker images for the ForgeRock Identity Platform, install the following additional software:

Software Version Homebrew package

Docker Desktop[2]

3.6.0

docker (cask)[1]

Skaffold

1.26.1

skaffold

Next Step


1. The Linux version of Homebrew does not support installing software it maintains as casks. Because of this, if you’re setting up an environment on Linux, you won’t be able to use Homebrew to install software in several cases. You’ll need to refer to the software’s documentation for information about how to install the software on a Linux system.
2. Install Docker Desktop on macOS. On Linux computers, install Docker CE instead. For more information, see the Docker documentation.
