About the Alias Sync Tool

The Alias Sync Tool is a Python script that resolves possible issues with aliases and joins that involve aliases. You can learn more about an alias in Concepts → Alias.

A System Administrator with root access to the host running an Incorta Node is able to run the Alias Sync Tool for each tenant in your Incorta cluster.

Download the Alias Sync Tool

You can download the Alias Sync Tool here:

Copy the file to the Incorta Node

  • Using Secure Copy or similar, copy the alias_sync.py to the /tmp/ directory to an Incorta Node in your cluster, typically an Incorta Node running an Analytics Service.
  • Change the ownership permissions to that of the incorta user or of the user that runs the Analytics Service process
  • As the incorta user, copy the alias_sync.py file to the <INCORTA_NODE_INSTALLATION_PATH>/IncortaNode/bin directory

Run the Alias Sync Tool

The alias_sync.py script has four parameters:

Name Description
Incorta_URL This is the HTTP URL for the Analytics Service. This must be HTTP and not HTTPS. The default port for the Analytics Services is 8080.
Tenant The name of the tenant
username The login name (username) of the Super User (tenant administrator)
password The password for the Super User. The password cannot contain special characters
Important

The password for the Super User cannot contain special characters. An argument with special characters will break the alias_sync.py script.

For each tenant in your Incorta Cluster, run the following command:

python alias_sync.py <Incorta_URL> <Tenant> <username> <password>
Example
python alias_sync.py http://myincortacluster.com:8080/incorta/ mytenant myadmin mypassword
