In this tutorial we are going to learn how to install Keptn in your Kubernetes cluster running in Azure Kubernetes Services (AKS) in the Azure Cloud.
Please download and install the following tools if you do not have them installed on your machine already.
We are going to setup a Kubernetes cluster in Azure. Therefore, please download the
az command line tool. Next, please create a cluser in the Azure Portal.

Every release of Keptn provides binaries for the Keptn CLI. These binaries are available for Linux, macOS, and Windows.
There are multiple options how to get the Keptn CLI on your machine.
This will download and install the Keptn CLI automatically.
curl -sL https://get.keptn.sh | sudo -E bash
keptnbinary in the unpacked directory
chmod +x keptn), and move it to the desired destination (e.g.
mv keptn /usr/local/bin/keptn)
Now, you should be able to run the Keptn CLI:
To install the latest release of Keptn in your AKS cluster, execute the
keptn install command with the
platform flag specifying the target platform you would like to install Keptn on.
keptn install --platform=aks
In the Kubernetes cluster, this command creates the keptn, keptn-datastore, and istio-system namespace. While istio-system contains all Istio related resources, keptn and keptn-datastore contain the complete infrastructure to run Keptn.
Now that you have installed Keptn you can take a look at its user interace aka the Keptn's Bridge.
Expose the bridge via the following command to be able to access on localhost:
kubectl port-forward svc/bridge -n keptn 9000:8080
Open a browser and navigate to http://localhost:9000 to take look. The bridge will be empty at this point but when using Keptn it will be populated with events.
Now that you have successfully installed Keptn, you can explore other tutorials!
