Before you can deploy the CDK, you must first set up your local environment to communicate with your working Kubernetes cluster.
After you’ve completed these environment setup tasks, you’re ready to deploy the ForgeRock Identity Platform in your namespace on your Kubernetes cluster.
Important information for users running Microsoft Windows
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: Current Ubuntu LTS release 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.
Important information for users running macOS on ARM-based (M1) chipsets
Running the CDK is currently not supported on macOS systems running an ARM-based chipset, such as the Apple M1 or Apple M1 Max.
See the Release Notes for a workaround.
