Lab 8: Deploy Sample Application

Return to Workshop


To wrap up this workshop, we will finish by deploying a sample application in our newly installed OpenShift cluster.

Create New User

To start, you will to create a new user that does not have the cluster-admin role.

Since we used the HTPasswd identity provider for this installation, you are going to create user credentials for your cluster. The file that contains the users for your HTPasswd identity provider is located at /etc/origin/master/htpasswd on the master node.

As we did previously when creating the admin user, connect to your master node via SSH and run the following command to create a new user in your /etc/origin/master/htpasswd file.

sudo htpasswd -b /etc/origin/master/htpasswd user1 openshift123

You can now log into the Web Console using the username user1 and password openshift123. If you are already logged in as the admin user, you can click the username dropdown in the top right corner and select Log out.

Create Project

When you first log in as user1, you'll notice that you do not have any projects.

Start by clicking the blue Create Project button to create your first project.

In the project details, use the following values:

Since this is an empty project, you will be brought to a screen showing the available images that come with OpenShift.

Click the Java category.

Then click the Red Hat JBoss EAP section.

You will now see all of the images available that are related to JBoss EAP.

Find the Red Hat JBoss EAP 7.0 image and click the Select button.

You will now be asked to fill out the details of the application you're going to deploy. We are going to use the example application mentioned on the page.

Use the following values:

Then click the blue Create button at the bottom of the page.

Your application is now being built and deployed. Click the Continue to overview link the page to go back and watch the progress.

Click on the right arrow next to DEPLOYMENT kitchensink to expand the details.

You should see towards the bottom of the details the output from the build of the application.

Once the build is complete, you will see a deployment of the generated application happen. Once that is finished, you will see the dark blue circle with 1 pod inside of it.

This means your application is now up and running.

Click the URL above the DEPLOYMENT kitchensink to navgiate to your application. The link will be in the format of

In a new tab, you should see the JBoss EAP kitchen sink sample application running.

You Did It!

That's the end of the workshop.

You have successfully deployed an OpenShift cluster and done an end-to-end test to verify that everything is functioning properly!
