Install Tanzu Application Platform Run profile

This topic tells you how to install Run profile cluster by using a reduced values file.

The following is the YAML file sample for the run-profile:

profile: run
ceip_policy_disclosed: FALSE-OR-TRUE-VALUE # Installation fails if this is not set to true. Not a string.

  ingress_domain: INGRESS-DOMAIN
  kubernetes_distribution: "openshift" # To be passed only for Openshift. Defaults to "".
  kubernetes_version: "K8S-VERSION"
  ca_cert_data: | # To be passed if using custom certificates.
    -----END CERTIFICATE-----
supply_chain: basic

      type: LoadBalancer # NodePort can be used if your Kubernetes cluster doesn't support LoadBalancing.

    sslDeactivated: TRUE-OR-FALSE-VALUE
    ingressEnabled: true
    host: appliveview.VIEW-CLUSTER-INGRESS-DOMAIN

  customer_entitlement_account_number: "CUSTOMER-ENTITLEMENT-ACCOUNT-NUMBER" # (Optional) Identify data for creating Tanzu Application Platform usage reports.


  • INGRESS-DOMAIN is the subdomain for the host name that you point at the tanzu-shared-ingress service’s external IP address.
  • K8S-VERSION is the Kubernetes version used by your OpenShift cluster. It must be in the form of 1.23.x or 1.24.x, where x stands for the patch version. Examples:
    • Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform v4.10 uses the Kubernetes version 1.23.3.
    • Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform v4.11 uses the Kubernetes version 1.24.1.
  • VIEW-CLUSTER-INGRESS-DOMAIN is the subdomain you setup on the View profile cluster. This matches the value key appliveview.ingressDomain or shared.ingress_domain on the view cluster. Include the default host name appliveview. ahead of the domain.
  • CUSTOMER-ENTITLEMENT-ACCOUNT-NUMBER (optional) refers to the Entitlement Account Number (EAN), which is a unique identifier VMware assigns to its customers. Tanzu Application Platform telemetry uses this number to identify data that belongs to a particular customers and prepare usage reports. See the Tanzu Kubernetes Grid documentation for more information about identifying the Entitlement Account Number.

If you use custom CA certificates, you must provide one or more PEM-encoded CA certificates under the ca_cert_data key. If you configured shared.ca_cert_data, Tanzu Application Platform component packages inherit that value by default.

If you set shared.ingress_domain in run profile, the is automatically configured as host: appliveview.INGRESS-DOMAIN. To override the shared ingress for Application Live View to connect to the view cluster, set the key to appliveview.VIEW-CLUSTER-INGRESS-DOMAIN.
