keptn create project

Creates a new project


Creates a new project with the provided name and Shipyard. The shipyard file describes the used stages. These stages are defined by name, as well as their task sequences.

By executing the create project command, Keptn initializes an internal Git repository that is used to maintain all project-related resources. To upstream this internal Git repository to a remote repository, the remote URL (–git-remote-url) is required together with private key (–git-private-key) or access token (–git-token). The Git user (–git-user) can be specified if the repository allows it. For using proxy please specify proxy IP address together with port (–git-proxy-url) and used scheme (–git-proxy-scheme=) to connect to proxy. Please be aware that authentication with public/private key and via proxy is supported only when using resource-service.

For more information about Shipyard, creating projects, or upstream repositories, please go to Manage Keptn
