Configure EFS for Kubernetes on AWS for Privacera Platform

By default with Kubernetes on AWS, Privacera Manager uses Elastic Block Store (EBS).

If you want to use Elastic File System (EFS) instead of EBS, follow this procedure.


You must set the property detailed here before you first run the ~/privacera/ update command. The file system cannot be changed after that.

  1. You must have created an EFS volume and you must know its file system ID (FSID) to configure it for Privacera Manager.

  2. You must not have yet run the ~/privacera/ update command. Enabling EFS must be the first configuration you need to set.


On the Privacera Manager host:

  1. Copy a configuration template file:

    cd ~/privacera/privacera-manager/config/ 
    cp sample-vars/vars.efs.yml custom-vars/
  2. Edit custom-vars/vars.efs.yml and change the value of the following property to the FSID you noted as a prerequisite:

  3. Save the file.

  4. Run Privacera Manager for the first time to make the change take effect:

    cd ~/privacera/privacera-manager 
    ./ update
