Install commands

Important: Modification to any files (chart.yaml, templates, etc) in hcl-leap-deployment-vX.X.X_XXXXXXXX-XXXX.tar.gz is not supported.

To run the installation of your prepared configurations using Helm, use the following command:

# Helm install command 
helm install -n my-namespace -f path/to/your/custom-values.yaml your-release-name path/to/hcl-leap-
  • The my-namespace is the namespace where your HCL Leap deployment is installed to.

  • The -f path/to/your/custom-values.yaml must point to the custom-values.yaml you have created, which contains all deployment configuration.

  • your-release-name is the Helm release name and prefixes all resources created in that installation, such as Pods, Services, and others.

  • path/to/hcl-leap-deployment-vX.X.X_XXXXXXXX-XXXX.tar.gz is the HCL Leap Helm Chart that you have extracted as described earlier in the planning and preparation steps.

After a successful deployment, Helm responds with the following message:
