Get Started with DSR Automation
This guide is designed to walk you through configuring Fides and automating your first Data Subject Request.
To quickly run Fides against real databases for experimentation, see the provided sample project.
Set up a compute instance
The instance you use for running Fides should simulate a "typical" developer machine (e.g., a modern laptop with 8GB RAM, an m6g.large on AWS EC2, etc).
Your instance must:
- Have Docker (version 20.10.11 or later) or Python (version 3.8, 3.9, or 3.10) installed
- Have a hard drive to persist database volumes, YAML resource files, etc.
- Be accessible for interactive shell commands (e.g. SSH)
- Be accessible via HTTP for web browser commands
Verify the installation
For Docker installations, run
docker -v in a new shell to confirm that docker is ready to use:
For Python installations, run
python -version in a new shell to confirm that docker is ready to use:
You are now ready to install Fides, and set up your environment!
