     sudo rpm --import https://artifacts.opensearch.org/publickeys/opensearch.pgp
    
  3. From the command line interface (CLI), you can install the package with rpm or yum. x64
     # Install the x64 package using yum.
     sudo yum install opensearch-dashboards-2.1.0-linux-x64.rpm
     # Install the x64 package using rpm.
     sudo rpm -ivh opensearch-dashboards-2.1.0-linux-x64.rpm
    

    arm64

     # Install the arm64 package using yum.
     sudo yum install opensearch-dashboards-2.1.0-linux-arm64.rpm
     # Install the arm64 package using rpm.
     sudo rpm -ivh opensearch-dashboards-2.1.0-linux-arm64.rpm
    
  4. After the installation succeeds, enable OpenSearch Dashboards as a service.
     sudo systemctl enable opensearch-dashboards
