Here is a guide to help you to install Gazelle Communication Tool( Rocket Chat ).

Minimal Requirements

  • Debian squeeze or ubuntu 12.04 64bits or higher with an Internet access.
  • Database : Postgresql 9.1+
  • Java virtual machine : JDK 1.7
  • Application server : JBoss 7.2.0.
    • It must be installed in: /usr/local/jboss7

To install those requirements you can refer to the documentation of installation of JBoss : General Requirements JBOSS 7


  • Gazelle-Keycloak

To install Gazelle-Keycloak follow the link below : [Keycloak] (https://gitlab.inria.fr/gazelle/documentation/gazelle-user-documentation/-/blob/master/Gazelle-Keycloak/installation.md)

Quick start

To install the Gateway module, you have to: clone this repository :

git clone https://gitlab.inria.fr/gazelle/applications/core/communication-tool-gateway.git

and launch this :

Wildfly Local start

mvn clean install
cd communication-tool-gateway-war
mvn org.wildfly.plugins:wildfly-maven-plugin:run

or this :

Quarkus Local start

mvn clean install
cd communication-tool-gateway-quarkus
mvn quarkus:dev

gateway address will be : http://localhost:8080

Gazelle TM configuration


  • Gazelle communication tools enabled : enabled
  • Gazelle communication tools URL : http://localhost:8080
  • Refresh channels and users : click
  • save

now users and organizations can be imported to the communication tool (e.g. Rocket Chat)


To deploy Gazelle-GCT-RC:

  1. cp gazelle-tm-ear/target/gazelle-tm.ear /usr/local/jboss7/standalone/deployments
  2. Display JBoss server logs, start JBoss and wait for ear deployment. tail -f /var/log/jboss7/standalone.log -n 1000
  3. The application can be browsed at http://localhost:8180/gazelle. Port could also be different whether you have modified the JBoss configuration. For more information about how to manage that externalization, please refer to general considerations for JBoss7.

Insert configuration values

Configuration can be done through the Administration interface or with an sql script.

Each time a configuration is modified, the application needs to be restarted.

To restart the application, there are 2 options:

  • Restart jboss: sudo service jboss restart
  • Touch the ear: touch /usr/local/jboss7/standalone/deployments/gazelle-tm.ear

Here is the list of configuration variables that must be defined: 

Variable Default value Description
Gazelle communication tools enabled true  
application_url http://server_domain:8180/gazelle URL to reach the tool
Gazelle communication tools URL http://server_domain:8080/gazelle URL to reach the communication tool
application_works_without_cas false Indicates authentication mechanism to use
cas_url http://keycloak.localhost:28080/realms/gazelle/protocol/cas URL of the CAS service

Database configuration

To insert values with an sql script, connect to the database :

su postgres
postgres=\# CREATE USER gazelle;
postgres=\# ALTER USER gazelle WITH ENCRYPTED PASSWORD 'gazelle';
postgres=\# \q
update usr_users set password = MD5('gazelle')    #only en local mode , for change all password database to "gazelle"
INSERT INTO cmn_application_preference (id, class_name, description, preference_name, preference_value) VALUES (nextval('cmn_application_preference_id_seq'), 'java.lang.String', 'CGU URL', 'link_to_cgu', 'cgu link that need to be changed');
INSERT INTO cmn_application_preference (id, class_name, description, preference_name, preference_value) VALUES (nextval('cmn_application_preference_id_seq'), 'java.lang.String', '', 'default_gazelle_language', 'EN');
INSERT INTO cmn_application_preference (id, class_name, description, preference_name, preference_value) VALUES (nextval('cmn_application_preference_id_seq'), 'java.lang.String', '', 'test_session_specification_url', 'https://www.ihe.net/resources/technical_frameworks/');
update tm_testing_session set continuous_session = false;
