Test Rok Registry

This section will guide you through testing access to Rok Registry, so that you make sure you have installed it properly.


  1. Expose Istio’s IngressGateway with kubectl port-forward:

    root@rok-tools:~# kubectl port-forward --address -n istio-system service/istio-ingressgateway 8080:80


    If you are running rok-tools as a Kubernetes Statefulset you will need a double kubectl port-forward to also forward traffic from your local host to the rok-tools Kubernetes Service:

    user@workstation:~$ kubectl port-forward services/rok-tools 8080:8080
  2. Visit the login page of Rok Registry at You will be immediately redirected to the Rok Registry login page.

  3. Login as user@example.com with the password you created when setting up the default user.


You have successfully tested access to Rok Registry.
