Set Data Destination

You can choose between four data destination options depending on how you want to use the Rekor Scout® Agent.

  1. Scout Cloud: Send data to (a Rekor Scout web server hosted by Rekor).

  2. Scout On-Premises: Send data to a self-hosted Rekor Scout web server (hosted by you on a Linux machine).

  3. Other HTTP Web Server: You wish to integrate Rekor Scout with your application. Send data to your own HTTP endpoint.

  4. Local Queue: Store data locally in beanstalkd and drain the queue programmatically from your application.

If you intend to use the Rekor Scout Agent for surveillance purposes, you will most likely select option 1 or 2. Options 3 and 4 are useful if you are a developer integrating Rekor Scout data into your application. More details can be found in Application Integration.

For Rekor Scout Agents installed on hardware with a GUI:

  1. Launch the Configure Rekor Scout program

  2. From the top menu, go to Configure -> Data Destination

For hardware without a GUI (Linux only):

  1. Registering with a Rekor Scout web server (cloud or on-premise) using your email and password

    sudo openalpr-licenseregister
    sudo alprlink-register -w https://[ip_address_of_web_server]
  2. Sending to a generic HTTP URL

    echo "upload_address = [ip_address_of_http_endpoint]" | sudo tee -a /etc/openalpr/alprd.conf
