This expert-led workshop guides students through the deployment of the ForgeRock Identity Platform™ (the Platform) on a Kubernetes cluster running in Google Kubernetes Environment (GKE). The workshop initially describes how to use the ForgeRock Cloud Developer’s Kit (CDK) to deploy a sample configuration of the Platform, which includes ForgeRock® Access Management (AM) and ForgeRock® Identity Management (IDM), which share ForgeRock® Directory Service (DS) as an identity store. The CDK is used to configure the Platform and redeploy the updated configuration in an existing Kubernetes cluster. Students then create a new cluster using Pulumi tools and deploy the Platform by following the Cloud Deployment Model (CDM). Monitoring add-ons tools are included with the CDM example. The skills gained by performing deployments with the CDK and CDM reference examples, help you identify the Kubernetes cluster and the Platform configuration requirements needed for preparation to move deployments into other environments, such as test and production. The last chapter of the workshop explores how to migrate the ForgeRock Entertainment Company (FEC) portal configuration from the IDM Core Concepts course to Kubernetes. This workshop uses the ForgeRock DevOps documentation set as a reference for the hands-on labs instead of providing a dedicated Student Workbook, as offered with the Core Concepts courses. You will work with the instructor to improvise any steps that are necessary for the given lab environment. Also, it is important that you have already successfully completed the relevant ForgeRock Core Concepts courses before attending this workshop. It is beneficial that you also have experience working with DevOps technology such as Kubernetes, Skaffold, Kustomize, Git, among other related tools.
Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:
This workshop is aimed at technical audiences who are responsible for deploying and managing the Platform on Kubernetes. This includes, but is not limited to, those with the following responsibilities:
The following are the prerequisites for successfully completing this course:
To deploy the Platform on Kubernetes, ForgeRock has simplified its reference cloud deployment, based on a new tool set that includes Git, Skaffold, and Kustomize, to simplify deployment to Kubernetes. The CDK and CDM examples can be used by your DevOps team to deploy and start up the Platform in a public cloud such as Amazon, Google, or Microsoft Azure.

You will get access to the PDF of course books and guides, but access to the recording and slides will depend on the vendor and type of training you receive.
Great company -- easy to sign up and very organized. Loved my teacher and class overall.
Thank Tech Data for sponsoring this course you really take care of your partners.
The tool provided to practice the course teachings is very functional and easy to use.
The training was good but needed the basic skills of maximo before getting deep in the configuration of it.
Topics, material and specially instructor (Graham Godfrey) was beyond my expectations.
