To install the Presslabs Dashboard, press on CONFIGURE and enter the following:

  • Cluster: the cluster you've created when going through the Dashboard Prerequisites will automatically appear here; you also have the possibility to quickly spin a new cluster directly from here, by presing Create a new cluster.

    NOTE

    If you've created a cluster and it doesn't appear here, most likely you've created one with lower resources then our recommended ones, see Dashboard Prerequisites .

  • Namespace: you can leave the default one

  • Presslabs Dashboard Service Account: Create a new service account

  • Presslabs Dashboard Domain: The domain you chose for the Presslabs Dashboard, e.g. dash.myagency.com

  • IP Address: Enter your reserved IP address here. If left empty a temporary IP address will be appointed.

    NOTE

    For a production environment it is recommended to reserve a static IP .

You also have to approve:
