I have a simple, serious question. How the heck do I install Boundary? Specifically, where in the docs is the external database created and the connection configured?
The table of contents does not make very much sense from a flow and direction perspective.
- Overview - nothing there
- “Without Generated Resources” - what does this mean? There is discussion about initializing the database, but not connecting to an external one or setting it up.
- Systemd install - nothing about there database
- Postres Install - puzzling that there is literally no information there despite claiming to cover Postgres-specific installation requirements. It does have a link to HA install.
- High Availability Install - this has some architecture components documented, but very feebly. Again, no mention of the database here other than in passing.
This has to be the most frustrating installation guide I’ve seen in an enterprise software offering. Providing something that clearly tells the story, then clearly strives to describe how it’s done, would help tremendously. What kind of a heading is “Without Generated Resources”? Has anyone UAT’d these instructions?
I apologize for the scathing review of the docs, but this is a paid, enterprise product for some, right? Does paid get different set of instructions - is this just bad by design to push to enterprise?
