Installing the CodeLogic SQL Agent (Linux)

The agents send metadata to the CodeLogic Server, they are installed on the servers upon which the applications or databases are running. The applications and databases to be scanned are specified in the agent configuration files.

The repository on the CodeLogic Server contains a script, named, that automates the installation of the Linux agents. The script adds the CodeLogic key to the repo keyring; adds the software repository (the CodeLogic Server); updates the apt/dnf cache; and installs the agents using the default package manager (DPKG or RPM)

  1. Install a Certificate
  2. Download the Script
  3. Execute the Script
  4. Authorize the Agent

Install a Certificate


If you are using HTTPS you will need to install a certificate. If you are not using HTTPS skip to the download step.

sudo cp path/to/yourCertificate.cer /etc/pki/ca-trust/source/anchors  
sudo update-ca-trust
sudo cp path/to/yourCertificate.cer /usr/local/share/ca-certificates  
#if ca-certificates is not on machine  
sudo apt-get install -y ca-certificates  
sudo update-ca-certificates


keytool -import -trustcacerts -keystore path/to/cacerts -storepass changeit-alias codelogic -file path/to/certificate.cer


The keystore location on java 11 looks like /<yourjdkpath>/lib/security Example: /opt/jdk-11/lib/security/cacerts

Download the Script

Use wget or curl to retrieve the install_agents.tar file. Be certain to open any firewall for port 80 (http) or 443 (https). Extract the tar file.


cd /tmp  
wget http://your_server/codelogic/server/packages/install_agents.tar  
tar -xvf install_agents.tar


You MUST replace your_server with the actual address of your CodeLogic Server.

Execute the Script

The script runs on Debian‑based or RHEL‑based distributions. For more information on supported technology, see CodeLogic Installation Requirements.


sudo ./ -d your_server -l agent_name


You MUST replace your_server with the actual address of your CodeLogic Server.

Replace agent_name with a descriptive name for the agent. If the descriptive name contains spaces be sure to put the name in quotes. For example, -l "agent name".

If the label is not specified, agent_type-hostname_of_codelogic_server is used.

Authorize the Agent

For security, agents must be authorized before they will send metadata to the CodeLogic Server.

  • Click Admin and then select the Agents tab.
  • Locate the agent in the list.


The Request Status will be listed as OPEN.

  • Click the more menu icon in the Actions column and select Approve/Reject.

  • The Approve window opens.

  • Optionally, enter a name for the agent in the Agent Name field.

  • Click Approve to complete the authorization process.

Next Steps To run a scan immediately, see Binary Scanning via Command Line (SQL). To configure scanning, and set up a scanning schedule, see Configuring the CodeLogic SQL Agent.
