Installing Cloudflow Enterprise components
This instruction shows how to install the Cloudflow Enterprise components. These components are available to Lightbend Subscription customers.
Before installing, you need to make sure you have the credentials required to download the cloudflow-enterprise components from the Lightbend commercial repository.
Add the Lightbend Helm repository and update the local index:
helm repo add cloudflow-helm-charts https://lightbend.github.io/cloudflow-helm-charts/ helm repo update
Install the components, note that you set the
$DOCKER_PASSWORD environment variables before executing this command.
We recommend using the following command to create an environment variable for username and password. This is to avoid storing this information in the shell’s history file.
read DOCKER_USERNAME read -s DOCKER_PASSWORD
If you want to see the password typed in, remove the
Once configured, we can execute the Helm command to install the Cloudflow enterprise components. Note how we use the
$DOCKER_PASSWORD in the Helm command.
helm upgrade cloudflow-enterprise-components cloudflow-helm-charts/cloudflow-enterprise-components \ --install \ --namespace cloudflow \ --set enterpriseOperatorVersion=2.0.10 \ --set enterprise-suite.imageCredentials.username="$DOCKER_USERNAME" \ --set enterprise-suite.imageCredentials.password="$DOCKER_PASSWORD"
After we have used the username and password environment variables, we can clear them by closing the shell or executing the following commands:
unset DOCKER_USERNAME unset DOCKER_PASSWORD
To quickly verify that the installation worked, you can open a proxy to the Lightbend console service and confirm that you can access the Lightbend console UI.
First, create the port-forward.
kubectl port-forward -n cloudflow svc/console-server 5000:80
Then open the following URL in your browser: https://localhost:5000
This opens the Lightbend Console in your browser.
If you need to upgrade Cloudflow to a newer version, Upgrading Cloudflow in the administration section will show you how.
