Chapter 4. Installing Service Registry on OpenShift

This chapter explains how to install Service Registry:


You can install more than one instance of Service Registry depending on your environment. The number of instances depends on the number and type of artifacts stored in Service Registry and on your chosen storage option.

4.1. Installing Service Registry from the OpenShift OperatorHub

You can install the Service Registry Operator on your OpenShift cluster from the OperatorHub. The OperatorHub is available from the OpenShift Container Platform web console and provides an interface for cluster administrators to discover and install Operators. For more details, see the OpenShift documentation.


  • You must have cluster administrator access to an OpenShift cluster.


  1. In the OpenShift Container Platform web console, log in using an account with cluster administrator privileges.
  2. Create a new OpenShift project:

    1. In the left navigation menu, click Home > Project > Create Project.
    2. Enter a project name, for example, my-project, and click Create.
  3. In the left navigation menu, click Operators > OperatorHub.
  4. In the Filter by keyword text box, enter registry to find the Red Hat Integration - Service Registry Operator.
  5. Read the information about the Operator, and click Install to display the Operator subscription page.
  6. Select your subscription settings, for example:

    • Update Channel > Select one of the following channels:

      • serviceregistry-1: All minor and patch updates, such as 1.1.0 and 1.0.1. An installation on 1.0.x automatically upgrades to 1.1.x.
      • serviceregistry-1.0: Patch updates only, such as 1.0.1 and 1.0.2. An installation on 1.0.x automatically ignores 1.1.x.
      • serviceregistry-1.1: Patch updates only, such as 1.1.1 and 1.1.2. An installation on 1.1.x automatically ignores 1.0.x.
    • Installation Mode > A specific namespace on the cluster > my-project
    • Approval Strategy > Manual
  7. Click Install, and wait a few moments until the Operator is ready for use.
