VMware Tanzu Container Provider

After initial installation and creation of a ManageIQ environment you can add a VMware Tanzu Container provider.

  1. Browse to menu: Compute > Containers > Providers.

  2. Click Configuration, then click Add a New Containers Provider (Add a New Containers Provider).

  3. From the Type list, select VMware Tanzu.

  4. Enter a Name for the provider.

  5. Enter the appropriate Zone for the provider. If you do not specify a zone, it is set to default.

  6. In the Default tab, configure the following for the VMware Tanzu provider:

    1. Select a Security Protocol method to specify how to authenticate the provider:

      • SSL: Authenticate the provider securely using a trusted Certificate Authority. Select this option if the provider has a valid SSL certificate and it is signed by a trusted Certificate Authority. No further configuration is required for this option.

      • SSL trusting custom CA: Authenticate the provider with a self-signed certificate. For this option, copy your provider’s CA certificate to the Trusted CA Certificates box in PEM format.

      • SSL without validation: Authenticate the provider insecurely (not recommended).

    2. Enter the Hostname (or IPv4 or IPv6 address) of the provider.


      The Hostname must use a unique fully qualified domain name.

    3. Enter the API Port of the provider. The default port is 8443.

    4. Enter the Username of your user. This user must have cluster level access to the VMware Tanzu cluster.

    5. Enter the Password of your user.

    6. Click Validate to confirm that ManageIQ can connect to the VMware Tanzu provider.

  7. Click Add.
