Mount standalone applications to OpenShift - Automated

This task describes how to automatically mount standalone applications to OpenShift clusters.

Prerequisites

  • Purchase a product certified for Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
  • Connect OpenShift clusters, version 4.2 or above, to Workspace.
  • Install the version of the OpenShift Command-line Interface (CLI), commonly known as oc, that matches your version of OpenShift.

About this task

This process automatically mounts your product into all OpenShift pods in the namespaces and clusters you select during this process.

To install into multiple namespaces for a single cluster, you need to repeat the procedure for each namespace.

Namespaces with the prefix kube- and openshift- are protected and are not selectable in the procedure. You are also not able to select namespaces that have been previously mounted.

When you unregister your OpenShift cluster after using this automated mount capability, you can still continue to use your products as if they were manually mounted, keeping Red Hat Marketplace and CSI drivers operational.

Procedure

  1. On the main menu, click Workspace, click Software, and then click on the product box.
  2. On the Downloads tab, click Mount.
  3. The automated method is pre-selected. To mount a dataset to OpenShift, follow the steps listed on the page, and then click Mount.

Result

Red Hat Marketplace Dataset Operator and Red Hat Marketplace CSI Driver are now installed into the the following namespaces:

  • openshift-operators
  • openshift-redhat-marketplace

Red Hat Marketplace Dataset custom resource definition (CRD) is installed into the namespace you selected during the procedure.

For more information, see the wiki for Red Hat Marketplace Dataset Operator and CSI Driver on Github.

  2. On the Downloads tab, on the row containing the cluster and namespace that you want to remove the standalone application from, open the overflow Menu (three dots), and click Unmount.
  3. A confirmation modal shows to ensure you want to proceed with this action, click Unmount.

Result

The standalone application is unmounted from the specified namespace and all containers running in this namespace will no longer have access to the product.

Red Hat Marketplace Dataset Operator and Red Hat Marketplace CSI Driver are not removed during this procedure. You must uninstall these components manually using the OpenShift cluster console.
