Automated OpenShift Installation for AWS


  • Docker Container Engine (Version: >= 17.09)

Quick Start


Available Scripts

There are three bash scripts available which make life easier.

Building the application

All parts of the application can be build using a provided script. The following dependencies are required:

  • Docker
  • Git

There are no more dependencies, compilation will take place inside a docker image.


Creating a cluster

./ -name="Test Cluster"

Required Parameters

AWS Keys

Parameter Description
-aws-key AWS access key id. If empty the credentials used for AWS CLI will be loaded
-aws-secret AWS secret key. If empty the credentials used for AWS CLI will be loaded

Optional Parameters

Parameter Description
-skip-terraform Skip terraform invocation. This should be used if there is an already existing infrastructure.
-skip-config Skip generation of configuration files. This is useful when there are already configuration files and only the installer should be run. Nevertheless recreating the configuration files would not harm the system.

Destroying a cluster

If you want to delete a previously created cluster, simply run


It is important that the files generated during creation are still available. At least the Terraform state (terraform.tfstate) and the Terraform configuration (configuration.tfvars) must be available.

Attention: After a successful destruction the terraform state and the old SSH key will be removed automatically.
