Lab 1 - Welcome

Welcome to OpenShift!

This lab provides a quick tour of the OpenShift console to help you get familiar with the user interface. If you are already familiar with the basics of OpenShift, this will be easy in that we are simply ensuring you can login and create a project.

Accessing OpenShift

OpenShift provides a web console that allows you to perform various tasks via a web browser.

Let's Login to the Web Console

Use your browser to navigate to the URI provided by your instructor and login with the user/password provided.

https://console-openshift-console.apps.example.redhatgov.io


Login Webpage

Once logged in you should see your available projects - or you will be provided with an informational box that "No projects exist"


Developer Default View

So this is what an empty project looks like

First let's create a new project to do our workshop work in. We will use the student number you were given to ensure you don't clash with classmates:

Click on the "Project: all projects" button and select "Create Project" from the drop down menu

Populate "Name" with "terminal-YOUR# " and populate "Description" boxes with whatever you like. And click "Create"

This is going to take you to the next logical step of adding something to the project, but we don't want to do that just yet.

Let's launch a terminal.

At the top of the screen, click the [>_] button.

Note: If the button does not exist, it may be necessary for the cluster administrator to load the "Red Hat Terminal Operator".

Check to see what projects you have access to:

$ oc get projects
oc get projects
NAME          DISPLAY NAME   STATUS
terminal-YOUR#                  Active

Type the following command to show services, deployment configs, build configurations, and active deployments (this will come in handy later):

$ oc status

Summary

You should now be ready to get hands-on with our workshop labs.
