Installing Apicurio Registry from the OpenShift OperatorHub

You can install the Apicurio Registry Operator on your OpenShift cluster from the OperatorHub. The OperatorHub is available from the OpenShift Container Platform web console and provides an interface for cluster administrators to discover and install Operators. For more details, see Understanding OperatorHub.

You can install more than one instance of Apicurio Registry depending on your environment. The number of instances depends on the number and type of artifacts stored in Apicurio Registry and on your chosen storage option.

  1. In the OpenShift Container Platform web console, log in using an account with cluster administrator privileges.

  2. Create a new OpenShift project:

    1. In the left navigation menu, click Home, Project, and then Create Project.

    2. Enter a project name, for example, my-project, and click Create.
