$ mv rosa /usr/local/bin/rosa
After you configure your AWS account, install and configure the ROSA CLI (
AWS Security Token Service (STS) is the recommended credential mode for installing and interacting with clusters on Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS (ROSA) because it provides enhanced security.
Install and configure the ROSA CLI (
rosa). You can also install the OpenShift CLI (
oc) and verify if the required AWS resource quotas are available by using the ROSA CLI.
Review and complete the AWS prerequisites and ROSA policies.
Create a Red Hat account, if you do not already have one. Then, check your email for a verification link. You will need these credentials to install ROSA.
Configure your AWS account and enable the ROSA service in your AWS account.
rosa, the Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS command-line interface (CLI).
Download the latest release of the
rosa CLI for your operating system.
Optional: Rename the executable file you downloaded to
rosa. This documentation uses
rosa to refer to the executable file.
rosa to your path.
$ mv rosa /usr/local/bin/rosa
Enter the following command to verify your installation:
Command line tool for ROSA. Usage: rosa [command] Available Commands: completion Generates bash completion scripts create Create a resource from stdin delete Delete a specific resource describe Show details of a specific resource edit Edit a specific resource help Help about any command init Applies templates to support Managed OpenShift on AWS clusters list List all resources of a specific type login Log in to your Red Hat account logout Log out logs Show logs of a specific resource verify Verify resources are configured correctly for cluster install version Prints the version of the tool Flags: --debug Enable debug mode. -h, --help help for rosa -v, --v Level log level for V logs Use "rosa [command] --help" for more information about a command.
Optional: Generate the command completion scripts for the
rosa CLI. The following example generates the Bash completion scripts for a Linux machine:
$ rosa completion bash | sudo tee /etc/bash_completion.d/rosa
rosa command completion from your existing terminal. The following example enables Bash completion for
rosa in an existing terminal on a Linux machine:
$ source /etc/bash_completion.d/rosa
Log in to your Red Hat account with
Enter the following command.
$ rosa login
<my_offline_access_token> with your token.
To login to your Red Hat account, get an offline access token at https://console.redhat.com/openshift/token/rosa ? Copy the token and paste it here: <my-offline-access-token>
I: Logged in as 'rh-rosa-user' on 'https://api.openshift.com'
Enter the following command to verify that your AWS account has the necessary permissions.
$ rosa verify permissions
I: Validating SCP policies... I: AWS SCP policies ok
This command verifies permissions only for ROSA clusters that do not use the AWS Security Token Service (STS).
Verify that your AWS account has the necessary quota to deploy an Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS cluster.
$ rosa verify quota --region=us-west-2
I: Validating AWS quota... I: AWS quota ok
Sometimes your AWS quota varies by region. If you receive any errors, try a different region.
If you need to increase your quota, go to your AWS console, and request a quota increase for the service that failed.
After both the permissions and quota checks pass, proceed to the next step.
Prepare your AWS account for cluster deployment:
Run the following command to verify your Red Hat and AWS credentials are setup correctly. Check that your AWS Account ID, Default Region and ARN match what you expect. You can safely ignore the rows beginning with
OCM for now.
$ rosa whoami
AWS Account ID: 000000000000 AWS Default Region: us-east-2 AWS ARN: arn:aws:iam::000000000000:user/hello OCM API: https://api.openshift.com OCM Account ID: 1DzGIdIhqEWyt8UUXQhSoWaaaaa OCM Account Name: Your Name OCM Account Username: firstname.lastname@example.org OCM Account Email: email@example.com OCM Organization ID: 1HopHfA2hcmhup5gCr2uH5aaaaa OCM Organization Name: Red Hat OCM Organization External ID: 0000000
Initialize your AWS account. This step runs a CloudFormation template that prepares your AWS account for cluster deployment and management. This step typically takes 1-2 minutes to complete.
$ rosa init

$ rosa download oc
After downloading the
oc CLI, unzip it and add it to your path.
Enter this command to verify that the

$ rosa verify oc
After installing ROSA, you are ready to create a cluster.
