1) For the installation of Data360 Analyze; what firewall ports need to be open and why?
Answer: Port 8080 for the Application server and Port 5432 for Postgres DB needs to be open.
Application server port needs to open for communication, so a user can communicate through port 8080 and 5432 on the back end so Application server communicates to Postgres DB.
