Starting with App Launchpad 2.0, tenant users can deploy container applications to a Kubernetes cluster. A supported source of container applications is a Helm Chart repository.

You can connect multiple Helm Chart repositories to App Launchpad .

Prerequisites

Verify that you set up a Helm Chart repository. To establish a connection between App Launchpad and a Helm Chart repository, you need the URL of the repository and the credentials of a Helm Chart repository user account.

Procedure

  1. Log in to the VMware Cloud Director service provider admin portal.
  2. From the main menu (Main menu icon), select App Launchpad.
  3. On the Settings tab, click Chart Repository.
  4. Click Add.
  5. Add the required repository details.
    1. Enter the URL of the repository.
    2. Select the authentication type.
    3. Enter the user name and the password of a Helm Chart repository user.
    4. If you are using a secured connection, you can optionally select to accept the self-signed SSL certificate of the repository.
    5. Click Save.

What to do next

You can now add the container applications from the Helm Chart repository to App Launchpad application catalogs.
