This is a multi-part, self paced quick start exercise that users can follow to experience the key capabilities of the platform on an imported Kubernetes cluster. This exercise has been specifically designed to be experienced with just a laptop and not require access to expensive infrastructure on public cloud environments.

What Will You Do

Part What will you do?
1 Create a new Project in your Org and import a k8s cluster into the Project
2 Add a new user (ideally a remote colleague) to the new project. Configure this user with a specific role
3 Have the user perform kubectl operations on your k8s cluster using zero trust kubectl and view kubectl access audit logs
4 Configure and publish a namespace to remote Kubernetes clusters
5 Configure and publish a custom cluster blueprint and apply to your cluster
6 Integrated Dashboards for Visibility and Monitoring
7 Create and operate a GitOps pipeline for deployment automation
8 Create and enforce a k8s policy on your cluster
9 Create and implement a backup policy for your cluster


This exercise assumes that you have access to the following:

  • A laptop/desktop
  • A reliable Internet connection (to download container images to your cluster etc.)
  • No firewall/router blocking outgoing connections on port 443
  • A current version of kubectl CLI installed on your laptop
  • An Org with Org Admin privileges
  • An account on GitHub (to test/experience GitOps pipelines)
  • An AWS Account (AWS S3 service) (to test/experience cluster backups)
