Deployments of Inferno are based on the test kit template. This template contains a
docker-compose.yml file that can run all of the services inferno needs.
At a minimum, deploying inferno involves the following:
git clonethe repository you want to deploy (or get it onto your server in some other way)
setup.shto pull & build the needed docker images and run database migrations
docker compose up -dto start all of the services in the background
By default, a deployment of Inferno includes the following services:
nginx- A reverse proxy which handles sending requests to the correct services
inferno- The inferno web process which serves Inferno’s static assets and the JSON API
worker- The inferno web process which actually executes tests
redis- Redis handles communication between the inferno web and worker processes
validator_service- A JSON API wrapper around the HL7 FHIR validator which Inferno uses to validate FHIR resources
fhir_validator_app- (Optional) A web front end for the validator service which allows users to easily perform standalone FHIR resource validation. Nothing depends on this service, so it can be safely removed from
docker-compose.ymlif you don’t need to provide standalone FHIR resource validation.
