Create directory for ACE dashboard in NFS mount
Login to NFS server and go to NFS mount. Create a directory where ACE Dashboard configuration/data will be persisted.
I have created the directory ‘ace-dashboard’ here.
Create Persistent Volume
Login to Openshift cluster.
oc login <Openshift cluster url> -u <username> -p <password>
Below is a sample json file to create PV for ACE dashboard. Save it in a file, say named ‘pvcreate.json’. Note that accessMode for ACE dashboad should be ‘ReadWriteMany’ (RWX).
Now run below command to create persistent volume using this definition.
oc create -f pvcreate.json
You may also create Persistent Volume Claim; however here we will leave it on Kubernetes to create PVC.
Create ACE Dashboard instance from Platform Navigator
Login to ICP4I Platform mavigator.
Click on ‘Add new instance’ in ‘AppConnect’ and click ‘continue’. Fill the appropriate values in respective fields.
Specify the hostname of the ingress proxy to be configured. For example in this case “icp-proxy.18.104.22.168.nip.io”
Uncheck ‘Use dynamic provisioning’ as we are using NFS and leave Persistent Volume Claim blank. Click on ‘Install’.
If you are using dynamic provisioning, you would have skipped step 1 and 2. In that case, the check box for ‘Use dynamic provisioning’ should be checked and name of storage class should be supplied in ‘Persistent storage class’. Note that the storage should support access mode RWX.
It will take few minutes to install and configure ACE Dashboard. Go to Platform navigator and you should be able to see ACE Dashboard link there.
Click on the dashboard link; it will navigate you to the page from where you can deploy BAR files and create integration servers.
In this recipe, we learnt how to deploy ACE Dashboard on ICP4I using persistent storage.
