In this section, you will create a standardized cluster blueprint with the StormForge add-on. You can then reuse this blueprint with all your clusters.

Step 1: Create Namespace

In this step, you will create a namespace for the StormForge agent.

  • Navigate to a project in your Org
  • Select Infrastructure -> Namespaces
  • Click New Namespace
  • Enter the name stormforge-system
  • Select wizard for the type
  • Click Save

Agent Namespace

  • Click Discard Changes & Exit

Step 2: Download Agent Helm Chart

In this step, you will download the latest agent Helm chart. The downloaded chart will be used in a later step.

  • Enter the following command into your Helm client
helm pull oci://

Step 3: Create StormForge Credentials

In this step, you will create a credentials file that the StormForge agent will use to authenticate with your StormForge account. The credentials will be used in a custom values file for the Helm chart.

Step 4: Create Custom Values File

In this step, you will create a custom values file to be used with the Helm chart. The values file will contain the previously created access credentials and the cluster name.

  • Create a file named values.yaml
  • Enter in the following line at the top of the file clusterName: {{{ .global.Rafay.ClusterName }}}
  • Enter the contents of the previously saved credentials file

The file should look similar to the following file.

clusterName: {{{ .global.Rafay.ClusterName }}}
  clientID: ***** # stormforge_creds
  clientSecret: ****

Step 5: Create StormForge Add-on

In this step, you will create a custom add-on for the StormForge agent.. This add-on will be added to a custom cluster blueprint in a later step.

  • Select Infrastructure -> Add-Ons
  • Click New Add-On -> Create New Add-On
  • Enter the name stormforge
  • Select Helm 3 for the type
  • Select Upload files manually
  • Select stormforge-system for the namespace
  • Click Create


  • Click New Version
  • Enter a version name
  • Click Upload
  • Select the previously downloaded Helm chart
  • Click Upload Files
  • Select the previously created values file
  • Click Save Changes


Step 6: Create Blueprint

In this step, you will create a custom cluster blueprint that contains the StormForge agent add-on that was previously created. The cluster blueprint can be applied to one or multiple clusters.

  • Select Infrastructure -> Blueprints
  • Click New Blueprint
  • Enter the name stormforge
  • Click Save


  • Enter a version name
  • Select default for the base blueprint


  • In the add-ons section, click Configure Add-Ons
  • Click the + symbol next to the previously created add-on to add it to the blueprint
  • Click Save Changes


  • Click Save Changes

Step 7: Apply Blueprint

In this step, you will apply the previously created cluster blueprint to an existing cluster. The blueprint will deploy the StormForge agent to the cluster.

  • Select Infrastructure -> Clusters
  • Click the gear icon on the cluster card -> Update Blueprint
  • Select the previously created StormForge blueprint and version
  • Click Save and Publish

Apply Blueprint

The controller will publish and reconcile the blueprint on the target cluster. This can take a few seconds to complete.

Apply Blueprint

Step 7: Validate Agent Reporting

In this step, you will access your StormForge account to ensure the StormForge agent is reporting to your account.

You will see the cluster in which you previously applied the blueprint with the StormForge agent.

StormForge Account

  • Click on the cluster name to see additional details

StormForge Account


It could take up to 1 hour to begin to see insights for the cluster.


Congratulations! You have successfully deployed the StormForge agent on your managed Kubernetes cluster as an add-on in a custom cluster blueprint. You then validated the agent was communicating with your StormForge account.
