A Pulsar instance is a group of clusters that acts together as a single unit.
An instance is identified by a Uniform Resource Name (URN). The format of instance URN is "urn:sn:pulsar:pulsar-instance-namespace:pulsar-instance-name". You can get the organization name and the instance name through the
snctl get organizations and
snctl get pulsarinstance commands. When a Pulsar client connects to a Pulsar cluster through the OAuth2 authentication method, the URN is a required field for OAuth2 authentication.
After creating an organization, you can create one or more instances for the organization.
Create an instance
If you are a member of multiple organizations, navigate to the organization you want to create an instance for. In the upper-right corner of the StreamNative Cloud Console, click your Profile and select Organizations to check your created organizations.
Click the name of your organization.
On the Instances card of the Dashboard page, click the Add icon and a dialog box appears.
Click Deploy Hosted to start the instance creation process.
Configure the instance, as outlined in the following table and then click Continue.
Item Description Instance Name Enter a name for the instance. An instance name starts with a lowercase letter, contains any combination of lowercase letters (a-z), numbers (0-9), and hyphens (-), and must be 4-10 characters. Infrastructure Select an infrastructure pool. The infrastructure pool affects the configuration options for the cluster, network latency for clients accessing the cluster, the geographic location of the nodes in the cluster, and the cost of the running cluster. Currently, Google Cloud and AWS cloud platforms are available.
If you subscribed to the StreamNative Cloud service through AWS Marketplace, only AWS cloud provider is available.
If you subscribed to the StreamNative Cloud service through Google Cloud Marketplace, only Google cloud provider is available.
Availability Zones (AZ) Select Multi AZ to deploy the instance on a Multi-AZ.
In the Create Payment Method box, enter a valid credit card number, and then click Create Payment Method.
You should continue your setup by creating a cluster. See work with clusters for more information.
