Installation with Helm

kcp Chart

We provide a Helm chart to install kcp on top of an existing Kubernetes cluster. Its source is available in kcp-dev/helm-charts.

The chart repository can be added via:

helm repo add kcp

The chart can then be installed as kcp/kcp:

helm install my-kcp kcp/kcp -f my-values.yaml


At the very least, .externalHostname needs to be set and point to a DNS hostname that will point to the front-proxy's external hostname.

A list of all values is available in the git repository.

Multi-Shard Charts

We are also working on a collection of charts that allow for a multi-shard deployment. Those are currently WIP and considered highly experimental, but instructions are also available on GitHub.
