Managing Deploy Keys

Deploy keys allow Pixie's Cloud to associate a cluster with an organization.

When deploying Pixie onto a cluster using the CLI, a deploy key is automatically created behind the scenes. When deploying with YAML or Helm, you will need to manually create a deploy key for use in the deployment process.

A deploy key can be used to install Pixie on any number of clusters. If you are installing in a cluster previously seen by Pixie, the install merges the history with the previous version in Pixie.

Create a Deploy Key

You can create a deploy key using either the CLI or Live UI.

Using the CLI

In the terminal, run

px deploy-key create

Copy the output value labeled Key:

CLI output for `px deploy-key create` command.
