Get Started with Armory CD-as-a-Service

Learn how to get started using Armory CD-as-a-Service to deploy apps to your Kubernetes clusters.

How to get started using Armory CD-as-a-Service

The following steps should take less than 5 minutes to complete:

  1. Register for Armory CD-as-a-Service.
  2. Connect your Kubernetes cluster.

Before you begin

  • You have reviewed the system requirements for using Armory CD-as-a-Service on the Requirements page.
  • You have access to a Kubernetes cluster and have installed kubectl.
  • You have installed Helm(v3), which is used to install the Remote Network Agent.

Register for Armory CD-as-a-Service

Access the Registration screen to create an account. Fill in the required fields. When you’re done, click Create Account.

You may have to log in after creating your account.

The Welcome to Continuous Deployment-as-a-Service Configuration page lists the steps you need to complete to begin using Armory CD-as-a-Service.

Connect your Kubernetes Cluster

  1. In the CD-as-a-Service Console, navigate to the Welcome to Continuous Deployment-as-a-Service Configuration page.

  2. Click the Connect your Kubernetes Cluster link.

  3. In the Add a New Remote Network Agent pop-up window, enter a name for your Remote Network Agent (RNA) in the Agent Identifier field. You install this RNA in the cluster where you want to deploy your app, so create a meaningful name.

  4. Click Continue.

  5. The pop-up window displays options for installing the RNA.

    • Quick: The quickest option is to copy the provided script and run it in your terminal after you have set your kubectl context. By default, the RNA is installed with * (all) permissions in the cluster. You need to do a manual install if you want to modify the default permissions.
    • Manual: Copy the Client ID, Client Secret, and the name you gave you RNA (the value of the Agent Identifier field). Then follow the instructions in the Install a Remote Network Agent guide.
