Lab 1 - Welcome

Return to Workshop

Welcome to OpenShift!

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.

Key Terms

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.

Accessing OpenShift

Additionally, you can utilize a command line tool to perfrom tasks.

Let’s try the command line (CLI)

Open a terminal and login using the same URI with following command:

$ oc login --insecure-skip-tls-verify=true
Authentication required for (openshift)
 Username: userYOUR#
Login successful.

Check to see what projects you have access to:

$ oc get projects

It looks empty via the command line too

You just created a project using the web console, let’s tell the terminal command line tool to use it.

Type the following command to use the demo project:

$ oc 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.
