Setup for GKE
This page describes the legacy CDM implementation, which will be deprecated in an upcoming release. We strongly recommend that you transition to the current CDM implementation as soon as possible.
Before deploying the CDM, you must set up your local computer, configure a Google Cloud project, and create a GKE cluster.
After you’ve completed all of these environment setup tasks, you’ll be ready to deploy the ForgeRock Identity Platform on your new Kubernetes cluster.
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.
