Setup Hive ports

For correct work of Hive, it is necessary to open ports 80 and 443 using your network equipment or the Load Balancer of your cloud provider, f.e. Elastic Load Balancing (AWS) or Google Cloud Load Balancing (GCE).

Additionally, you may need to open all ports you use:

  • in your network equipment, f.e. by adding these ports to Security Group (AWS) or to Compute Engine firewall rules (GCE);
  • in the Firewall of your OS (if incoming connections are not allowed by default).

Change default ports

To change default Hive ports:

  1. Open the console of the virtual machine;
  2. Open the /opt/hw-bw/config/user.ini file using the command:

    sudo nano /opt/hw-bw/config/user.ini
  3. Add the following parameters to the file, and specify new IP and port, f.e.:

  • for HTTP ports:

    b.deck.ip.expose =
    b.deck.port.expose = 10001
  • for HTTPS ports:

    b.deck.https.ip.expose =
    b.deck.https.port.expose = 443
  1. Save the /opt/hw-bw/config/user.ini file;
  2. To apply changes, run the command:


Connect Hive and Apiary to the same docker network

The following settings are required, when Hive and Apiary are running on the same machine, and you want to create connection between Hive and Apiary projects without SSL.

To configure Apiary, go to the Apiary Help Center > Connection settings.

In Hive proceed with the following:

  1. Open the console of the machine, where Hive and Apiary are installed;
  2. Create your own docker network by running the command:

    docker network create -d bridge <NETWORK_NAME>
    • You can check if you have a docker network with type 'bridge' already created and use its name for the connection:
    docker network ls --filter driver=bridge
  3. Open the file /opt/hw-bw/config/user.ini (root privileges required);
  4. Add the following lines to the [main] section: = <NETWORK_NAME> = external
  5. Save the /opt/hw-bw/config/user.ini file;
  6. To apply changes, run the command:
