Accessing the IBM Cloud Shell

For this workshop we'll be using the IBM Cloud Shell. The IBM Cloud Shell is a cloud-based shell workspace that you can access through your browser. It's preconfigured with the full IBM Cloud CLI and tons of plug-ins, and other 3rd party CLIs like OpenShift's oc, Helm's helm and Kubernetes' kubectl.

Refer to the SETUP_CLI section if you wish to install these CLIs on your local machine.

Accessing the IBM Cloud Shell

From the IBM Cloud console, click the IBM Cloud Shell icon. A session will start and automatically log you in through the IBM Cloud CLI.
