Deploying Your Rasa Assistant

This page explains when and how to deploy an assistant built with Rasa. It will allow you to make your assistant available to users and set you up with a production-ready environment.

When to Deploy Your Assistant

The best time to deploy your assistant and make it available to test users is once it can handle the most important happy paths or is what we call a minimum viable assistant.

The recommended deployment methods described below make it easy to share your assistant with test users via the share your assistant feature in Rasa X. Then, when you’re ready to make your assistant available via one or more Messaging and Voice Channels, you can easily add them to your existing deployment set up.

Alternative Deployment Methods

Docker Compose

You can also run Rasa X in a Docker Compose setup, without the cluster environment. We have a quick install script for doing so, as well as manual instructions for any custom setups.

Rasa Open Source Only Deployment

It is also possible to deploy a Rasa assistant without Rasa X using Docker Compose. To do so, you can build your Rasa Assistant locally or in Docker. Then you can deploy your model in Docker Compose.
