Before You Begin

Visual Summary

Here's an example configuration of Pivotal Cloud Foundry as Cloud Provider in Harness.

Review: PCF Permissions

PCF user account with Admin, Org Manager, or Space Manager role. The user account must be able to update spaces, orgs, and applications.

For more information, see Orgs, Spaces, Roles, and Permissions from Pivotal.

Step 1: Add the Cloud Provider

To add a cloud provider to your Harness account, do the following:

  1. Click Setup, and then click Cloud Providers.
  2. Click Add Cloud Provider and select Pivotal Cloud Foundry.

The Add Pivotal Cloud Foundry Provider panel appears.

Step 2: Endpoint URL

Enter the API endpoint URL, without URL scheme. For example, api.run.pivotal.io. Omit http://.For more information, see Identifying the API Endpoint for your PAS Instance from Pivotal.

Step 3: Username / Password

Username and password for the PCF account to use for this connection.

You can use an inline username or a Harness Encrypted Text secret.

For the password, select or create a new Harness Encrypted Text secret.

Step 4: Pivotal Cloud Foundry Name

Provide a unique name for this connection. You will use this name to select this connection when creating a service infrastructure for your deployment.

Step 5: Skip Validation

If you do not have a specific Endpoint URL or credentials set up, you can skip validation and add the Cloud Provider as is.

Enable this option during creation of the Cloud Provider only.

Later, when you create an Infrastructure Definition as part of your Harness setup, Harness will need to validate. Return to this Cloud Provider and disable Skip Validation.

Step 6: Usage Scope

Usage scope is inherited from the secret you selected for Select Encrypted Password.
