First time install of IRIS for Health on Mac

I'm attempting a first-time installation of IRIS for Health on my home Mac for eval purposes. I want to be able to install IRIS and Ensemble. I downloaded the package but it doesn't come with instructions, and I'm running into issues. Is there a straightforward install instruction set online, or does anyone have one you can pass along?


Thanks, Jim Winski

Documentation about installation IRIS in macOS.

The easiest way to try it is to start it with docker.

docker run -d --name irishealth -p 52773:52773 store/intersystems/irishealth-community:2021.

With installed docker when this command will successfully download the image, and starts IRIS for Health, you may try to open it, as usual by URL http://localhost:52773/csp/sys/UtilHome.csp, with default login and password, but will ask to change it.

For Ensemble

docker run -d --name ensemble -p 52772:52772 daimor/intersystems-ensemble:2018.1

But, be aware, that all your changes will disappear when the container will be stopped and deleted.
