  2. You must have or create a Google Cloud project:
    1. Sign in to your Google Cloud account. If you're new to Google Cloud, create an account to evaluate how our products perform in real-world scenarios. New customers also get $300 in free credits to run, test, and deploy workloads.
    2. In the Google Cloud Console, on the project selector page, select or create a Google Cloud project.

      Go to project selector

    3. Make sure that billing is enabled for your Cloud project. Learn how to confirm that billing is enabled for your project.

  3. Enable the following APIs in your Cloud project:
    • Google Kubernetes Engine API: Create GKE clusters.
    • Cloud Build API: Build containers.
    • Container Registry API: Publish containers to Container Registry.
    Enable the APIs

Deploying a sample container

Use the Google Cloud Console to deploy a sample container and create a service in your cluster:

  1. In the Cloud Console, go to the Cloud Run for Anthos page.

    Go to Cloud Run for Anthos

  2. Open the Create service form by clicking Create service.

  3. In the available clusters dropdown menu, select the cluster to which you have access.

  4. Leave default entered as the name of the namespace.

  5. Enter a service name, such as hello.

  6. Click Next.

  7. Select Deploy one revision from an existing container image, then select hello from the demo containers drop-down.

  8. Click Next.

  9. Select External under Connectivity, so that you can invoke the service.

  10. Click Create to deploy the image to Cloud Run for Anthos and wait for the deployment to finish.

Congratulations! You have just deployed a service to a Cloud Run for Anthos enabled cluster.
