Has anyone installed StreamSets on Windows. The documentation provides more information on Linux.

Yes. You can run pipelines on Windows natively using StreamSets Data Collector Edge Edge can execute pipelines but it doesn't provide a UI so I assume you want the full Data Collector. You can run StreamSets Data Collector on Windows using the Windows Subsystem for Linux. I have used WSL to run data collectors on my laptop. If you have minimal Linux skills (can use a package manager and get around in the Linux shell) then you should be able to get it working.

Basic steps are:

  1. Install Windows Subsystem for Linux. (Windows app store, search for “Ubuntu” and install the generic Ubuntu) Note that you should be able to use any Linux distribution. I just prefer Ubuntu.
  2. Use package manager to update your machine and install required packages. (see my suggested list below)
  3. Install SDC following the installation documentation.

I believe the following packages are required. Though I copied this from an old ansible script that installs Control Hub so your mileage may vary.

sudo apt install \
   openjdk-8-jdk-headless \
   mlocate \


  1. If you find you needed to install other packages, please make a note on this page. In fact if you have any other tips I am sure others in the community would appreciate your additions here!
  2. You could just use a virtual machine but what fun is that?
  3. Auto-starting SDC is a little more involved. I leave it to your google skills. :-)
  4. This is not a supported configuration. i.e. You can get functional support but if a problem exists at the OS level then you are unlikely to get assistance in figuring out what is wrong. Bottom line: Don't run this in production.

StreamSets Data Collector is supported on MacOS X and Linux (see the installation requirements for exact versions). It might be possible to get it working on Windows with the Linux Subsystem, but I've never done so.
