Create a Workload

Overview

Follow the steps below to create a workload within your GVC.

Prerequisites

Create using the UI Console

Follow the steps below to create a workload (requires a GVC):

  1. Create a new workload using one of the following methods:
    • Clicking Workloads in the left menu and click New, or
    • Click the Create dropdown in the upper right corner and select Workload
  2. Enter a unique name and optional description. Click Next (Container 1).
  3. Set up your container. Browse through each tab and configure as required. Click here for additional details. Click Next (Identity).
  4. Select from the list of available identities. If you do not have any identities defined, the default (No Identity), will be the only option. Click Next (Options).
  5. Configure the options for the workload. Click here for additional details. Click Next (Firewall).
  6. Configure the firewall options for the workload. Click here for additional details. Click Next (Tags).
TIP

Depending on the requirements of your container, the firewall options can be configured to allow either or both inbound and outbound requests.

If your container will be accepting requests from the Internet, verify that the All Inbound Requests Allowed switch is turned on or enter the expected CIDR's.

If your container requires Internet access, verify that the All Outbound Requests Allowed switch is turned on or enter the expected CIDR's or hostnames in their respective textboxes.

  1. Enter any optional tags. Click Create.
  2. Your workload has been successfully created and the workload summary page will be shown. After a few moments, if the image was successfully deployed, the Workload Health status will show Healthy. The Global Endpoint link can be clicked and will open in a new browser.

Create using the CLI

Refer to the workload create command for details and examples on how to create a workload using the CLI.
