Service Catalog is an extension API that enables applications running in Kubernetes clusters to easily use external managed software offerings, such as a datastore service offered by a cloud provider.
It provides a way to list, provision, and bind with external Managed ServicesA software offering maintained by a third-party provider. from Service BrokersAn endpoint for a set of Managed Services offered and maintained by a third-party. without needing detailed knowledge about how those services are created or managed.
hack/local-up-cluster.sh, ensure that the
KUBE_ENABLE_CLUSTER_DNSenvironment variable is set, then run the install script.
helm initto install Tiller, the server-side component of Helm.
Once Helm is installed, add the service-catalog Helm repository to your local machine by executing the following command:
helm repo add svc-cat https://svc-catalog-charts.storage.googleapis.com
Check to make sure that it installed successfully by executing the following command:
helm search service-catalog
If the installation was successful, the command should output the following:
NAME VERSION DESCRIPTION svc-cat/catalog 0.0.1 service-catalog API server and controller-manag...
Your Kubernetes cluster must have RBAC enabled, which requires your Tiller Pod(s) to have
When using Minikube v0.25 or older, you must run Minikube with RBAC explicitly enabled:
minikube start --extra-config=apiserver.Authorization.Mode=RBAC
When using Minikube v0.26+, run:
With Minikube v0.26+, do not specify
--extra-config. The flag has since been changed to –extra-config=apiserver.authorization-mode and Minikube now uses RBAC by default. Specifying the older flag may cause the start command to hang.
If you are using
hack/local-up-cluster.sh, set the
AUTHORIZATION_MODE environment variable with the following values:
AUTHORIZATION_MODE=Node,RBAC hack/local-up-cluster.sh -O
helm init installs the Tiller Pod into the
kube-system namespace, with Tiller configured to use the
default service account.
Note: If you used the
--service-accountflags when running
helm init, the
--serviceaccountflag in the following command needs to be adjusted to reference the appropriate namespace and ServiceAccount name.
Configure Tiller to have
kubectl create clusterrolebinding tiller-cluster-admin \ --clusterrole=cluster-admin \ --serviceaccount=kube-system:default
Install Service Catalog from the root of the Helm repository using the following command:
helm install svc-cat/catalog \ --name catalog --namespace catalog
