After entering information in the required fields, the user interface displays all of the deploy commands for Calyptia CLI, Helm, and kubectl.

Calyptia CLI

One available method to install on top of Kubernetes is to use Calyptia CLI. Calyptia CLI lets you manage, operate, and create multiple core instances. Before getting started, ensure the following two requirements are fulfilled:

  • Verify that the current Kubernetes context is configured to the cluster you want to deploy in. Run kubectl get nodes to determine which cluster is in the current context.

  • You must have the proper token for authentication. Retrieve the token by signing in to Calyptia Core, and in the navigation menu select Core Instances, click New Instance, enter the name and tags you want to use, click Next, and view the information in the Calyptia CLI tab.


See the Getting Started with Core Operator for details about how to install and set up your first Calyptia Core instance in your Kubernetes cluster, by using either Calyptia CLI or Helm.
