10 Starting IQdesktop

Below it is shown how to start IQdesktop on a local installation. How to start it on a local server or in the cloud will depend on your organization’s specific setup and thus cannot be shown here in general. An example of how the process could look in the case of a cloud setup is shown here.

On your local system, open a terminal, navigate to the folder where you have stored the configuration file and execute:

docker-compose --file my-iqdesktop-config.yml up 

Replace my-iqdesktop-config.yml with the name you gave your config file.

If everything is correctly set up, you will see a message similar to the following (note that the message might be different as new versions of IQdesktop become available):

Once started, you can close the Window and are ready to connect to IQdesktop.
