⚙️ Setting up Kubernetes Goat

  • Before we set up the Kubernetes Goat, ensure that you have created and have admin access to the Kubernetes cluster
kubectl version --short
  • Set up the helm version 2 in your path as helm2. Refer to helm releases for more information about setup
helm2 --help
  • Then finally setup Kubernetes Goat by running the following command
git clone https://github.com/madhuakula/kubernetes-goat.git
cd kubernetes-goat
bash setup-kubernetes-goat.sh
  • To export the ports/services locally to start learning, run the following command
bash access-kubernetes-goat.sh

Kubernetes Goat - KIND setup

  • If you want to setup Kubernetes Goat using KIND, refer to kind-setup
