Download the Contrast installer

When your license is provisioned, you get access to a Contrast Hub account where you can download installers and licenses. If you're unsure about who holds access for your company, contact Support.

Alternatively, you can use curl commands instead of the Contrast Hub to download installers and licenses.

Before you begin

Determine which installer you want to download:

  • If you are installing with internet connectivity, download the installer that does not contain the Contrast library and CVE data. This installer is the NO-CACHE installer.

    Once you install Contrast, enable Hub connectivity in system settings so that you continue to get the latest library data.

    Linux installer example:Contrast-3.8.11.1683721903-NO-CACHE.sh.

  • If you are installing without internet connectivity (airgap), download the installer that contains the Contrast library and CVE data.

    Linux installer example:Contrast-3.8.11.1683721903.sh.

Steps

  1. Log in to the Contrast Hub with the credentials provided to you.

  2. Download the Contrast installer for your operating system.

    1. Select Downloads in the header.

    2. Select Installers

    3. Select the file to download:
