How to Setup Devtron in AWS EKS ?.

Devtron is installed in a Kubernetes cluster in a variety of ways. This tutorial helps to install Devtron without integration through Kubernetes Helm package manager.

Kindly follow this blog to create a EKS cluster. Once the cluster is active, Kindly enter the below command to know about the cluster nodes status.

kubectl get nodes -o wide
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Helm installation

Now that the cluster is running, run the following command to install Helm.

curl -fsSL -o get_helm.sh https://raw.githubusercontent.com/helm/helm/main/scripts/get-helm-3
chmod 700 get_helm.sh
./get_helm.sh
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Check the version of Helm to confirm the Helm installation.

helm version
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Installing Devtron

Run the following command to install Devtron and its default configuration without integration via Helm.

helm repo add devtron https://helm.devtron.ai
helm install devtron devtron/devtron-operator --create-namespace --namespace devtroncd
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

This will launch the Devtron operator and all Devtron microservices in the devtroncd namespace in minutes.

Check out the various microservices that ship with the Devtron. Run the below command to check pods and services running in the devtroncd namespace.

# To check pods running in devtroncd namespace
kubectl get pods -n devtroncd
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
# To check services running in devtroncd namespace
kubectl get svc -n devtroncd
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

After the Devtron installation is complete, make the Devtron dashboard available through the NodePort service and access the Devtron dashboard.

Run the following command which exposes the devtron service running in the devtroncd namespace to the NodePort service over port 30000.

kubectl patch -n devtroncd svc devtron-service -p '{"spec": {"ports": [{"port": 80,"targetPort": "devtron","protocol": "TCP","name": "devtron","nodePort": 30000}],"type": "NodePort","selector": {"app": "devtron"}}}'
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Run the following command to check for patches for devtron-service running in the devtroncd namespace.

kubectl get svc -n devtroncd
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Run the below command to get the dashboard URL.

kubectl get svc -n devtroncd devtron-service -o jsonpath='{.status.loadBalancer.ingress}'
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

The Devtron dashboard is now accessible.

You need credentials to log in to the Devtron dashboard as an administrator. Use admin as the username and run the following command to get the password.

kubectl -n devtroncd get secret devtron-secret -o jsonpath='{.data.ACD_PASSWORD}' | base64 -d
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Copy the generated password and use it to log in to the devtron dashboard.

Now you can see the Devtron dashboard. Then add Devtron integration to extend Devtron's capabilities.
