Adding a service to a cluster

You can add a service to an existing OpenShift Dedicated cluster through the OpenShift Cluster Manager (OCM).

Prerequisites
  • You have created and provisioned a cluster for OpenShift Dedicated.

  • Your cluster meets all of the prerequisites for the service that you want to add on to your cluster.

  • For paid add-on services, note the following considerations:

    • If the organization has sufficient quota, and if the service is compatible with the cluster, the service appears in OCM.

    • If the organization has never had quota, or if the cluster is not compatible, then the service does not display.

    • If the organization had quota in the past, but the quota is currently 0, the service is still visible but disabled in OCM until you get more quota.

To add a service to a cluster, you must be the cluster owner.

Procedure
  1. Navigate to the Clusters page in OCM.

  2. Select the cluster you want to add a service to.

  3. Click the Add-ons tab.

  4. Click the service option you want to add, click Install. An installing icon appears, indicating that the service has begun installing.

    A green check mark appears in the service option when the installation is complete. You might have to refresh your browser to see the installation status.

  5. When the service is Installed, click View in console to access the service.

Accessing installed services on your cluster

After you successfully install a service on your cluster, you can access the service through the OpenShift console.

Prerequisites
  • You have successfully installed a service on your OpenShift Dedicated cluster.

Procedure
  1. Navigate to the Clusters page in OpenShift Cluster Manager (OCM).

  2. Select the cluster with an installed service you want to access.

  3. Navigate to the Add-ons tab, and locate the installed service that you want to access.

  4. Click View on console from the service option to open the OpenShift console.

  5. Enter your credentials to log in to the OpenShift console.

  6. Click the Red Hat Applications menu by clicking the three-by-three matrix icon in the upper right corner of the main screen.

  7. Select the service you want to open from the drop-down menu. A new browser tab opens and you are required to authenticate through Red Hat Single Sign-On.

You have now accessed your service and can begin using it.

Deleting a service from OCM

You can delete the add-on services from your OpenShift Dedicated cluster through the OpenShift Cluster Manager (OCM).

Procedure

  2. Click the cluster with the installed service that you want to delete.

  3. Navigate to the Add-ons tab, and locate the installed service that you want to delete.

  4. From the installed service option, click the menu and select Uninstall add-on from the drop-down menu.

  5. You must type the name of the service that you want to delete in the confirmation message that appears.

  6. Click Uninstall. You are returned to the Add-ons tab and an uninstalling state icon is present on the service option you deleted.
