Collibra DQ User Guide

Standalone Install (Script)

We've moved! To improve customer experience, the Collibra Data Quality User Guide has moved to the Collibra Documentation Center as part of the Collibra Data Quality 2022.11 release. To ensure a seamless transition, will remain accessible, but the DQ User Guide is now maintained exclusively in the Documentation Center.

Install Script
Download using the curl command below
Access the machine through either a cloud shell or SSH. The snippet below is an example SSH command.
ssh -i <your_key> <user>@<public-ipv4-ip-address>
ssh -i ~/.ssh/abc.pem [email protected]
Your pem file should have correct permissions. A simple command to confirm the permissions is sudo chmod 400 <your_key>


After you enter your SSH into the Centos or Redhat VM, run these commands from the command line:

Step 1 - Download the script

curl -o

Step 2 - Modify script permission

sudo chmod +x

Step 3 - Run the script

echo | ./
The most common directory to use for installation is your user directory (/home/<user>). You do not need to create any directories. The install script will create the correct directory structure. The user should have sudo access to perform the installation and the directory should not be a restricted system directory.

Step 4 - Click URL

Login to the application using user: admin password: admin123 for the first time.
Make sure you have access to the server and port. Adding the correct security group or whitelisting your IP address is a common step to be able to access an application running on a cloud server.

BYOL (Optional)

Using the same command, you can bring your own license or use a different download link.
./ "<Installer Download Link>" "<License Key>"

Confirmation (Optional)

Once the installation script is complete, check the details of the processes on the server.
ps -ef | grep -i spark
ps -ef | grep -i owl-web
ps -ef | grep -i owl-agent
ps -ef | grep -i postgres
When all of the processes are up and running, log into your standalone instance of Collibra Data Quality.
Configure your agent and connections as normal.
