In this hands-on lab, we will install Helm and configure the standard repository. Once that is complete, we will release a chart to ensure everything is working properly. After the release is verified, we will use Helm to clean up our cluster and remove the resources we created.
Successfully complete this lab by achieving the following learning objectives:
- Install and Configure Helm
On the Kubnernetes primary server, download and install Helm from its packaged binary.
Once Helm is installed, add the bitnami repo using
helm repo add bitnami https://charts.bitnami.com/bitnamiand install bitnami/wordpress using
helm install test bitnami/wordpress.
- Create a Helm Release
Ensure Helm is working by creating a Helm release in the default namespace. The release should be named
testand the WordPress should be the application that is released.
- Verify the Release and Clean Up
Check the status of the release to ensure the release succeeded, then verify in
kubectlthat the resources were created.
Once you are satisfied that resources were created, remove the resources from the cluster. Then, confirm there are no resources present in the default namespace.
