Creating a cluster using the web portal

  1. Navigate to the BigAnimal portal. Sign in with your account.

  2. Select the Clusters link on the left to navigate to the Clusters page.

  3. Select Create New Cluster, which opens the Create Cluster page.

  4. Select the options you want for your cluster. See Creating a cluster in the full version documentation for details on the options.


Select Create Cluster, and you're brought back to the Clusters page with your newly configured cluster now populating the list.

Initially, the new cluster is being provisioned. This usually takes a minute or two but can take up to an hour. A progress bar is shown near the right.

Select the provisioned cluster to view the parameters you'll need to connect to it.
