Connect to Your Target Tanzu Account

This topic sets up the Harness Delegate in your Tanzu Application Service (TAS, formerly PCF) environment and adds the Cloud Provider used to connect to your Tanzu cloud for deployment.

Before You Begin

Step 1: Set Up the Harness Delegate

The Harness Delegate is a service you run in your local network or VPC to connect your artifact servers, TAS infrastructure, and any other providers with the Harness Manager.

If you are running your TAS Cloud in AWS, you can use a Shell Script Delegate run on an EC2 instance in the same VPC and subnet as your TAS Cloud, or an ECS Delegate run in an ECS cluster in the same VPC.

For information on setting up Harness Delegates, see Harness Delegate Overview.

If you want to install the CF CLI on the Delegate, use a Harness Delegate Profile and the script shown in Cloud Foundry CLI.

Step 2: Add the Cloud Foundry CLI

The host running the Harness Delegate must run the CF CLI in order to execute the required commands.

See Install Cloud Foundry CLI Versions on the Harness Delegate.

Using CF CLI 7

By default, Harness uses CF CLI 6. Certain CLI commands have been changed between the CLI versions. See Upgrading to CF CLI 7 from Cloud Foundry.

If you enable the Enable CF CLI 7 option on the Harness Service you are deploying, the Harness Delegate will use that CLI version to execute the correct set of commands.

See Install Cloud Foundry CLI Versions on the Harness Delegate.

Step 3: Add the Harness TAS Cloud Provider

A Harness TAS Cloud Provider connects Harness to your TAS account and allows the Harness Delegate to make API calls.

The TAS Cloud Provider has the following settings.

Display Name

Enter a name for the Cloud Provider. You will use this name when selecting this Cloud Provider in Harness Infrastructure Definitions.

Endpoint URL

Enter the API endpoint URL, without URL scheme. For example, Omit http://.For more information, see Identifying the API Endpoint for your PAS Instance from Pivotal.

Username / Password

Username and password for the TAS account to use for this connection.

Usage Scope

If you want to restrict the use of a provider to specific applications and environments, do the following:

In Usage Scope, click the drop-down under Applications, and click the name of the application.

In Environments, click the name of the environment.

Review: TAS Permissions

Make sure the TAS user account is assigned Admin, Org Manager, or Space Manager role. The user account must be able to update spaces, orgs, and applications.

For more information, see Orgs, Spaces, Roles, and Permissions from Tanzu.
