Part 1: Setup

What Will You Do

This is Part 1 of a multi-part, self-paced quick start exercise. In this part, you will perform a few "one-time" tasks. Declarative specifications are provided for the exercise so that you can get started with just a few commands.


Step 1: Download RCTL

The RCTL CLI allows you to programmatically interact with the controller enabling users to construct sophisticated automation workflows.

  • Login into your Org
  • Navigate to "My Tools" to download both the RCTL CLI and the "CLI Config" file
  • Initialize RCTL using the step-by-step instructions
  • Ensure you update your OS's Path environment variable for RCTL

Step 2: Clone Git Repo

Declarative specs for this excercise are available in a Git repository

  • Clone the Git repository to your laptop using the command below.
git clone https://github.com/RafaySystems/getstarted.git
  • Once complete, you should see a folder called "opa_gatekeeper" which contains the declarative specs needed for this excercise.
