We are running an on prem system on a local network without internet connection.
We wish to embed a query builder to our db (postgres) and It seems metabase is a great option.
We see only the paid version has a query builder, where the authentication is done with an api key to metabase servers.
Is there a way to use metabase query builder on local environments without an internet connection?
So it all depends if you need to embed Metabase inside your own app.
If no, then you can just use Metabase.
If yes, then you need FullApp embedding (https://www.metabase.com/docs/latest/embedding/full-app-embedding), which requires a license token (what you call "api key" I guess).
The Enterprise edition comes with instructions on how to run Metabase in "air-gapped" environment, so you should contact sales if you're interested in that https://www.metabase.com/sales/ https://www.metabase.com/pricing
Thank you for the prompt reply.
I'll contact the sales, but just to be clear, if we wish to use Metabase in an air-gapped environment, do we have to have the enterprise quota?
@Dvir If you need the Pro/Enterprise functionality, then yes, only the Enterprise contracts would allow running air-gapped, since the Pro plans are self-service and charged by user count via the token checkin.
I've contacted sales, thanks.
