Section 1 - Deploying the DevOps Tools

Section 1 Overview

Once you have completed this section, you should have a functioning deployment of the SDP. This includes a Jenkins master, one or more Jenkins agents, and services used by SDP libraries, such as SonarQube.

Before You Begin

You Should Have…​

  • A working OpenShift cluster

  • Credentials for a User on that cluster that has the cluster-admin role

  • Access to the relevant GitHub Repositories

  • The Helm client installed

  • The OpenShift CLI installed

You Should Be Able To…​

  • Modify simple configuration files

  • Run bash commands/scripts

System Requirements

  • Your OpenShift cluster meets the minimum hardware requirements as laid out in the documentation

  • Your cluster has enough available CPU and Memory for the SDP containers (see below)

  • Your cluster has enough remaining CPU and Memory for your application and any additional services (such as Prometheus, for monitoring)

Additional Recommendations

Your OpenShift Cluster is able to:

While not required to deploy the SDP, persistent volumes allow for safely restarting containers without loosing any storage or history. It can also make certain pipeline actions faster, such as building Docker images.

Container Resource Recommendations

Container CPU (ea.) Memory (ea.) Quantity

Jenkins Master




Jenkins Agent








* While only one Jenkins Agent is required, it’s highly recommended to have more. The quantity depends on how frequently Jenkins builds are run.
