Environment Setup: Minikube

This documentation describes new, pre-release CDK features. If you want to work with a stable feature set, use the CDK as described in this section of the documentation.

Before you can deploy the CDK, you must first set up your local environment with a Minikube cluster.

Windows users

ForgeRock supports deploying the CDK and CDM using macOS and Linux. If you have a Windows computer, you’ll need to create a Linux VM. We tested using the following configurations:

  • Hypervisor: Hyper-V, VMWare Player, or VMWare Workstation

  • Guest OS: Ubuntu 19.10 with 12 GB memory and 60 GB disk space

  • Nested virtualization enabled in the Linux VM.

Perform all the procedures in this documentation within the Linux VM. In this documentation, the local computer refers to the Linux VM for Windows users.

The Minikube implementation on Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL2) has networking issues. As a result, consistent access to the ingress controller or the apps deployed on Minikube is not possible. This issue is tracked here. Do not deploy CDK or CDM on WSL2 until this issue is resolved.
