Deploy the operatoredit

  1. Apply the all-in-one template, as described in the quickstart.

    oc create -f
    oc apply -f
  2. [Optional] If the Software Defined Network is configured with the ovs-multitenant plug-in, you must allow the elastic-system namespace to access other Pods and Services in the cluster:

    oc adm pod-network make-projects-global elastic-system
  3. Create a namespace to hold the Elastic resources (Elasticsearch, Kibana, APM Server, Enterprise Search, Beats, Elastic Agent, Elastic Maps Server, and Logstash):

    A namespace other than the default namespaces (default, kube-, openshift-, etc) is required such that default Security Context Constraint (SCC) permissions are applied automatically. Elastic resources will not work properly in any of the default namespaces.

oc new-project elastic # creates the elastic project
  1. [Optional] Allow another user or a group of users to manage the Elastic resources:

    oc adm policy add-role-to-user elastic-operator developer -n elastic

    In this example the user developer is allowed to manage Elastic resources in the namespace elastic.
