Install Ansible Service Broker Addon into Your CDK Installation
Start your Red Hat Container Development Kit (CDK) environment with registration (this is important, as yum gets used during Addon installation).
minishift start --service-catalog
Clone the addon repository and install Ansible Service Broker Addon:
git clone https://github.com/minishift/minishift-addons.git
minishift addon install ansible-service-broker
minishift addon apply ansible-service-broker
When logging in to your CDK console, you should already see the preinstalled Ansible APBs:
Install the ABP Command Line on Your Client Machine
Configure your shell to use the Minishift Docker daemon:
eval $(minishift docker-env)
Fetch the APB command line script and make it available in your PATH:
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ansibleplaybookbundle/ansible-playbook-bundle/master/scripts/apb-docker-run.sh && mv apb-docker-run.sh apb && chmod +x apb
Verify that your installation works:
If everything went well, you should see something like this:
Test the Connection Between ABP CLI and CDK
You will need special permissions to work with the broker on your CDK installation. Therefore, we need to execute the following:
oc adm policy add-cluster-role-to-user cluster-admin developer
oc login -u developer
Now let’s see if we can list the preinstalled APBs:
Configure Ansible Service Broker to Pull Images from Local Registry
In the default config of our Ansible Service Broker, the APBs are pulled from
https://registry.hub.docker.com/. We need to change this to our local registry running within CDK.
- type: local_openshift
The Ansible Service Broker pod now needs to be restarted in order to pull in the new configuration.
Create your first APB
First, we use the CLI to scaffold our new service:
apb init sample-service-apb
Now we locally build our APB. After the process has completed, the newly built APB docker image should appear in your local Docker registry:
Finally, we need to push the Docker image to our Service Broker inside CDK:
Now you should be able to see your first APB in your CDK’s service catalog:
