Deploying Explorer on Railway

Explorer can be deployed as a Railway service using the am-proxy Docker image. Railway now supports deploying the services from Docker images directly (opens in a new tab).

Create a Railway service from a Docker image

Make sure to provide the correct Prometheus URL (can be internal Railway URL) to the PROMETHEUS_URL environment variable and kick off the deployment.

Add a PORT environment variable and create an external endpoint

In order to make Explorer accessible externally - you need to tell Railway which port to listen on using the "magic" PORT environment variable and create a public endpoint (Railway will generate a URL for you or you can bring your own domain).

Verify deployment

The Explorer should be accessible at <RAILWAY_SERVICE_URL>:6789 - navigate there and verify that it has connected with your Prometheus correctly, you should be seeing your Autometrics data come through.
