Simple guide

This page is a super easy to follow, "TL;DR", minimum list of commands to get a ROSA cluster deployed. This will work great for this workshop, though more attention should be paid for clusters to be used in production.


The steps on this page assume you have completed the prerequisites in the Setup section.

Create account roles#

Run once per AWS account, per y-stream OpenShift version:

rosa create account-roles --mode auto --yes

Deploy the cluster#

Choose the CLI or the UI method.


  1. Create the cluster with the default configuration. Just choose a cluster name.

    rosa create cluster --cluster-name <cluster-name> --sts --mode auto --yes
  2. Check the status.

    rosa list clusters


  1. Create OCM Role (only once per AWS account)

    rosa create ocm-role --mode auto --admin --yes
  2. Create OCM User Role (only once per AWS account)

    rosa create user-role --mode auto --yes
  3. Use the OCM UI to select your AWS account, cluster options, and deploy.

  4. The status will update in the UI.
