This section presents how to quickly get the services up and running in a few minutes. This allows you to easily test the services and check how Software Factory works. When you are satisfied, check the configuration file to customize the settings and the architecture file to enable extra services. Also check the deployment documentation for deployment options and how to setup network access control.
On a CentOS-7 system, deploy the basic services (managesf, gerrit, zuul and nodepool) using these commands:
yum install -y https://softwarefactory-project.io/repos/sf-release-3.5.rpm yum install -y sf-config sfconfig --provision-demo
By default the deployment will use “sftests.com” for the FQDN, you might want to set it locally in your /etc/hosts so that the web interface works properly.
Podman provider quickstart¶
The Nodepool service integrated in Software Factory comes with a kubernetes provider driver to enable simple podman container usage. The sfconfig configuration management comes with a hypervisor-k1s role that you can use to quickly setup and configure a test environment.
For this quickstart, we will use the main instance as the hypervisor:
echo " - hypervisor-k1s" >> /etc/software-factory/arch.yaml sfconfig --enable-insecure-workers
Because the container doesn’t have network isolation, we have to use a sfconfig argument to enable the main host as a nodepool provider. Please check the the nodepool operator doc to properly deploy one or many dedicated k1s instances.
To configure an external gerrit such as review.openstack.org, you’ll need to manually create a user on the remote gerrit. For openstack.org, follow this guide to configure it.
It’s recommended to first deploy a local installation, before adding the external gerrit. In that case, after your local deployment is validated, add the local zuul ssh public key (located here: /var/lib/software-factory/bootstrap-data/ssh_keys/zuul_rsa.pub) to the remote user ssh key setting page. Then add the new gerrit connection to /etc/software-factory/sfconfig.yaml file:
zuul: gerrit_connections: - name: review.openstack.org hostname: review.openstack.org port: 29418 puburl: https://review.openstack.org username: external-gerrit-user-name # optional canonical_hostname canonical_hostname: git.openstack.org
