Before you deploy an application, you must install application-controller. This component enables application center services. After you install application-controller, you can deploy applications and manage application versions in the application center. This topic describes how to install application-controller.


  1. Log on to the ACK console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Application Center > Application.
  3. Install application-controller.
    Select a target cluster and click Install. The installation process takes about three minutes.
  4. Add a cluster to the application center.

    By default, the system adds the cluster that has application-controller installed to the application center. After you add a cluster, you can deploy applications to the cluster in the application center. You must select a cluster when you initialize the application center. We recommend that you install application-controller for the first cluster that you select during initialization. In this case, you do not have to install application-controller for other clusters. You can use application-controller on the first cluster to deploy and manage applications in other clusters.

    After you add a cluster, click Get Started to deploy applications.1
