Step 2: Create an Application

After you install the replicated CLI and create an API token, you can use the CLI to create a new application.

To create an application:

  1. Run the following command to create an application named cli-tutorial:

    replicated app create cli-tutorial

    Example output:

    ID          NAME              SLUG            SCHEDULER
    2GmY... cli-tutorial cli-tutorial kots
  2. Export the application slug in the output of the app create command as an environment variable:


    Replace YOUR_SLUG with the slug for the application you created in the previous step.

  3. Verify that both the REPLICATED_API_TOKEN environment variable that you created as part of Step 1: Install the replicated CLI and the REPLICATED_APP environment variable are set correctly:

    replicated release ls

    In the output of this command, you now see an empty list of releases for the application:


Next Step

Continue to Step 3: Get the Sample Manifests to download the manifest files for a sample Kubernetes application. You will use these manifest files to create the first release for the cli-tutorial application.
