TMC introduced a new option for deploying software/packages by integrating software deployment feature in the TMC console. There is a new option now on the console named “Catalog” as shown in the below screenshot.
Once you click on the “Catalog” option, you will see the following softwares available by default.
Note: In case you have not onboarded or selected any cluster from the dropdown, softwares will not be shown and you will see a message like below.
Before I talk about the process of deploying these softwares on a supported Kubernetes cluster, lets understand a few important points here.
By default, the TKG Standard package repository is added on TMC and hence the softwares you see are nothing but the packages that come with TKG standard.
We can also create our own carvel package repository, add them on TMC and make the packages available for the installation.
