Create a service account

To connect your applications or services to a OpenShift Streams for Apache Kafka instance, you need to create a service account:

  1. Select Application Services from the menu on the landing page.
  2. On the Application Services landing page, select Service Accounts. You will be taken to the empty screen shown in Figure 12.
Figure 12: The Service Accounts screen is blank until you create an account.


3. Click Create service account to set up the service account. Enter a unique service account name and an optional description, and click Create.

4. Copy the generated client ID and client secret to a secure location. These are the credentials that you’ll use to connect to this Kafka instance.

After saving the generated credentials, select the confirmation check box and close the Credentials window.
