Validating the Installation

Testkube Cloud will notify if the installation is successful.

  • A green indicator means that your cluster was able to connect to the Testkube Cloud.
  • A red indicator indicates that the Testkube Agent can't connect to the Testkube Cloud API (Testkube needs some time to establish a connection, max time is 2-3 minutes).

Validate Install

In case of a RED status you can try to debug the issues with the command below:

testkube agent debug

By default, Testkube is installed in the testkube namespace.
