Set Up your Control Plane

Request your organization's Facets Control Plane running on your cloud account

Overview

The aim of this document is to guide the user to create and access their organization's Control Plane.

📘

Note

The Facets Control Plane is privately hosted and stays within your cloud perimeters.

Prerequisites

  1. An AWS account (A new AWS account preferably allocated for this) to host the Facets Control Plane.
  2. A Git repository to host the blueprint for your application architecture.

Deploying Facets Control Plane

  1. Click on the personalized link sent to you to launch a cloud formation stack in the newly created AWS account. This will create an IAM Role.

📘

Note

  • For any support, send an email to [email protected]
  • You can communicate your preferred AWS region to the Facets team.
  • Do not change the assigned region (default: Mumbai) while creating the IAM role.
  1. Facets will use the IAM Role to install the Facets Control Plane in your AWS account in the region that you have communicated. The Control Plane will consume an EKS cluster with a single node.
  2. You will receive a Facets Control Plane URL (for e.g., https://facetsdemo.console.facets.cloud/) to access your Control Plane.
  3. You will also receive Admin access to your Facets Control Plane to get started.
