How to Provision a Socrata Gateway Agent on a Mac

You must have Java 8 or higher installed in order to install an agent to connect directly to your data sources.

To provision and install a Socrata Gateway agent: 

  1. Select the gear icon, then select "Administration."
  2. Select "Gateway."
  3. Name the agent and download it.
  4. Unzip the downloaded file to the location where you would like to keep the agent and open the new folder.
  5. Open the macOS folder.
  6. Double-click the setup file. If a warning comes up, select the option to open the file anyway. This will open your terminal.
  7. Once the process in your terminal is complete, return to your Socrata site and click "Next."
  8. Scroll down to the bottom of the Gateway modal and click "Refresh."
  9. Refresh the page and see your new agent in the list of agents.
