How to deploy a charm
You’ve packed your charm. This document shows you how you can now deploy your charm to a cloud of your choosing. This can be easily done with the Juju OLM, assuming you’ve already set it up with the cloud and added a model.
Before we do start deploying, let’s first configure the Juju model to display
DEBUG level log messages and watch the output. Open a terminal and run the following:
# Set the default log level to DEBUG $ juju model-config logging-config="<root>=WARNING;unit=DEBUG" # Tail the Juju log $ juju debug-log
Now, going back to the terminal where you packed your charm, run:
$ juju deploy ./my-new-charm.charm # Watch the Juju status to see the Charm's progress $ watch -c juju status --color
The deployment will take about 30 seconds, and you should see the various operator events being triggered in the
juju debug-log output. If all goes well, you should see output similar to the following from
watch -c juju status --color:
Model Controller Cloud/Region Version SLA Timestamp development micro microk8s/localhost 2.9.0 unsupported 10:25:35+01:00 App Version Status Scale Charm Store Channel Rev OS Address Message my-new-charm active 1 my-new-charm local 0 kubernetes Unit Workload Agent Address Ports Message hello-operator/0* active idle 10.1.215.218
Note that you can inspect the content of your charm easily—the bundle is just a zip file! Go ahead and open up
my-new-charm.charm in your native archive viewer to see how the charm gets packaged up.
