Deploying ToolJet on Kubernetes (GKE)

info

You should setup a PostgreSQL database manually to be used by ToolJet. We recommend using Cloud SQL since this guide is for deploying using GKE.

Follow the steps below to deploy ToolJet on a GKE Kubernetes cluster.

  1. Create an SSL certificate.

     curl -LO https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ToolJet/ToolJet/main/deploy/kubernetes/GKE/certificate.yaml

Change the domain name to the domain/subdomain that you wish to use for ToolJet installation.

  1. Reserve a static IP address using gcloud cli

     gcloud compute addresses create tj-static-ip --global
  2. Create k8s deployment

     curl -LO https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ToolJet/ToolJet/main/deploy/kubernetes/GKE/deployment.yaml

Make sure to edit the environment variables in the deployment.yaml. You can check out the available options here.

  1. Create k8s service

     curl -LO https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ToolJet/ToolJet/main/deploy/kubernetes/GKE/service.yaml
  2. Create k8s ingress

     curl -LO https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ToolJet/ToolJet/main/deploy/kubernetes/GKE/ingress.yaml

Change the domain name to the domain/subdomain that you wish to use for ToolJet installation.

  1. Apply YAML configs

     kubectl apply -f certificate.yaml, deployment.yaml, service.yaml, ingress.yaml
info

It might take a few minutes to provision the managed certificates. Managed certificates documentation.

You will be able to access your ToolJet installation once the pods, service and the ingress is running.

If you want to seed the database with a sample user, please SSH into a pod and run:
npm run db:seed --prefix server.
This seeds the database with a default user with the following credentials:
