Getting Started with APPUiO Cloud
This tutorial describes your first steps with APPUiO Cloud, from signup to your first deployment.
Step 1: Create an Account
To create your APPUiO Cloud account, fill the form in this page. You will receive an e-mail inviting you to create a password for your newly created account.
Step 2: Login
Login to the APPUiO Cloud Portal following the instructions in your welcome e-mail. You will be asked to provide a password and setup Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) in your account.
Step 3: Create an Organization
The first thing you need to do in the APPUiO Cloud Portal is to create an organization for yourself and your team.
|If you don’t choose a default organization, you won’t be able to create new projects in the OpenShift web console later.|
Step 4: Choose a Zone
In the home screen of the APPUiO Cloud Portal select the link that corresponds to your preferred zone marked as "Console"
If you are more of a command line person, you can also copy the Kubernetes API URL and login using
oc login --server=<url>.
Step 5: Get Started with OpenShift
There is a slight delay (usually less than 3 minutes) between the very first login to a zone and the default organization setup.
During this time you might see error messages like
Follow the "Getting Started" instructions of OpenShift; download the command line tools if you haven’t already, create a new project, and deploy your first application in just a few steps.
Step 6: Deploy an Application
Select your preferred programming language to get started; you can either use the OpenShift web console, or, if you are more technically inclined, just launch your preferred terminal and start typing:
|Programming Language||Web Console Version||Terminal Version|
