To successfully deploy you will need a few tools installed and we'd recommend getting some environment variables created as well to make life easier.
To deploy Hydrolix in GCP you will need to have some supporting tools installed. You should make sure these are installed first.
You can check if they are installed by:
which kubectl which gcloud
We'd also recommend setting up some environment variables, to make the installation easier:
export CLIENT_ID=<HYDROLIX WILL PROVIDE YOU> export [email protected] export OWNER=admin export HYDROLIX_HOST= <CHOOSE A HOSTNAME> export HYDROLIX_DOMAIN=hydrolix.net export CLOUD=gcp export REGION= <CHOOSE A GCP REGION e.g. us-central1> export HKT_VERSION= < THE HKT VERSION YOU ARE USING e.g.v3.6.1> export PROJECT_ID= <YOUR PROJECT ID WHERE THE PLATFORM WILL RESIDE>
More information on each of the values are below.
The Hydrolix CLIENT_ID you have been provided when requesting a licence.

Move the binary to your local bin folder
