This lab provides a quick tour of the console to help you get familiar with the user interface along with some key terminology we will use in subsequent lab content. If you are already familiar with the basics of OpenShift simply ensure you can login and create the project.
We will be using the following terms throughout the workshop labs so here are some basic definitions you should be familiar with. You'll learn more terms along the way, but these are the basics to get you started.
Additionally, you can utilize a command line tool to perforrm tasks.
Use your existing Butterfly terminal, and login, using the same URI with following command:
$ oc login https://api.example.redhatgov.io:6443 --insecure-skip-tls-verify=true Authentication required for https://api.example.redhatgov.io:6443 (openshift) Username: userYOUR# Password: Login successful.
Check to see what projects you have access to:
$ oc get projects
Create a project
Let's tell the terminal command line tool to create and use a new project:
Type the following command to create and use the demo project:
$ oc new-project demo-YOUR#
Type the following command to show services, deployment configs, build configurations, and active deployments (this will come in handy later):
$ oc status
You should now be ready to get hands-on with our workshop labs.
