|If you do not have access to CloudBees CD/RO but want to evaluate the software, just send us a request.|
Accessing CloudBees CD/RO for the technical evaluation
In addition to this document, you should receive from your CloudBees representative the URL and the credentials you need to access your CloudBees CD/RO instance.
Enter the username and password provided by CloudBees to sign in to CloudBees CD/RO.
|It is assumed that only one user will be using the CloudBees CD/RO instance. If multiple users are involved, each should create his or her own project and namespaces.|
Completing the hands-on examples
The step-by-step examples are provided to introduce you to the key features and applications of CloudBees CD/RO. The instructions are self-contained and can be performed with no further background so that you can be successful right away.
|Because the examples build upon one another, it is highly recommended that you complete them in order.|
|The deployment examples make use of public content hosted on GitHub. These include a binary archive (.war file) and a Helm chart. Users only need read access to GitHub to download the .war file. The Helm charts are downloaded using a CloudBees-supplied configuration.|
It is also recommended that you read the product features pages in the CloudBees CD/RO documentation so you can get a practical understanding of the software. You can do this before or after you complete the examples.
