HTTPS 5672 epmd Optional
TCP 8088 Superset Optional
TCP 80 HTTP access Superset Optional
TCP 443 HTTPS access Superset Optional
TCP 9090 PostgreSQL Web-GUI tool Optional

# Version

You can see the version from product page of Marketplace. However, after being deployed to your server, the components will be automatically updated, resulting in a certain change in the version number. Therefore, the exact version number should be viewed by running the command on the server:

# Check all components version
sudo cat /data/logs/install_version.txt

# Linux Version
lsb_release -a

# Nginx  Version
nginx -V

# Docker Version
docker -v

# Superset Version
docker exec -it superset_app /bin/bash -c 'cat /app/superset-frontend/package.json |grep version'

# PostgreSQL version
docker exec -it superset_db /bin/bash -c 'psql -V'
