OpenShift Quick Start: Build, Deployment and Pipeline

David Pitt Microservices, OpenShift, Tutorial Leave a Comment

This post is a continuation of our hands-on OpenShift Quick Start blog series.

In the first post we introduced OpenShift & its features. In part two, you worked to get OpenShift running locally & adding a Container with an API service to a Pod. In part three, you worked on scaling pods and managing Cluster with the CLI.

This blog continues that series, introducing the automated Continuous Integration / Continuous Delivery (CICD) features of the OpenShift platform using both the Web Console and the Command Line. A hands-on exercise will then show how a Jenkins build Pipeline can be customized…

OpenShift Quick Start: CLI

This post is a continuation of our hands-on OpenShift Quick Start blog series. In the first post we introduced OpenShift, and in part two, you worked to get OpenShift running locally & adding a Container with an API service to a Pod. Make sure you’ve completed that step prior to starting the continued exercise below!

The previous blogs in this series managed OpenShift using the web admin user interface. However, everything that can be done with the user interface can also be done from using the CLI (Command Line Interface). Arguably, developers prefer to interact with text commands, but that’s a generalization.

In this post, we’ll demonstrate common OpenShift commands can be done in the web admin from the command line.

Our previous blog in the series introduced RedHat’s OpenShift solution that provides a way for enterprise teams to implement their own PaaS. Essentially, it sits atop the Docker-based Kubernetes platform to provide a ready-to-use DevOps platform.

This blog introduces two hands-on exercises (taken from our OpenShift Course), that work to walk you through the following tasks:

– Installing OpenShift locally
– Adding a Container with an API service to a Pod

Unfortunately, it will take more than this quick start blog to get OpenShift installed and enabled in an enterprise. That said, developers, system admins, and any party that may be working on or responsible for the platform, will benefit from understanding how to get OpenShift up and running on a local machine as shown in this blog.
