Cluster: the cluster you’ve created when going through the App Prerequisites will automatically appear here; you also have the possibility to quickly spin a new cluster directly from here, by presing Create a new cluster.
If you’ve created a cluster and it doesn’t appear here, most likely you’ve created one with lower resources then our recommended ones, see App Prerequisites .
Make sure that the cluster you want to install the App on isn’t scaled to 0. To check this, go to your cluster on Google Cloud and check the number of nodes.
Namespace: you can leave the default one
App-instance-name: the name of your App install
Bitpoke App Service Account: Create a new service account
Bitpoke App Domain: The domain you chose for the Bitpoke App, e.g.
IP Address: Enter your reserved IP address here. If left empty a temporary IP address will be appointed.
For a production environment it is recommended to reserve a static IP .
You also have to approve:
- I acknowledge that Workload identity must be enabled for the Bitpoke App to function properly

That’s it, you’ve successfully deployed the Bitpoke App. All that’s left to do now is set the DNS records at your DNS provider.
