Downloading the Open Source metabase.jar...

Your download should begin automatically. If it doesn't, you can start it manually.

If you're looking for the Pro or Enterprise editions of Metabase, you'll need a different JAR file. See Activating your Metabase commercial license.

The most basic way of running Metabase is to open up a terminal and use Java to launch the application. This is the only command you’ll need:

java -jar metabase.jar

This will launch a Metabase server on port 3000 by default.

Metabase requires that you have Java 11 or higher available on your system. We have run Metabase with both the OpenJDK and Oracle JDK, so feel free to use either.

If you want to learn more about how to run Metabase using the .jar file, check out our documentation.
