CodeReady Containers - Getting Started with OpenShift Container Platform 4.5 and Decision Manager Tooling

For some time now we've been working on updating your experience using CodeReady Containers, a container platform installation for your local machine, by providing interesting developer tooling and project examples. 

The first example here is the latest version of the Red Hat Decision Manager installed on OpenShift Container Platform (either your own installation or using our CodeReady Containers installation).

Get started today with rules and business logic in just a few simple steps, as follows. 

There is no better way to learn about container technologies, container platforms, and container-based application development than getting hands-on with great open technologies. 

This demo is to install Red Hat Decision Manager in the Cloud based on leveraging a Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform. It delivers a fully functioning Decision Manager containerized on OpenShift Container Platform.

Install on OpenShift Container Platform

There are two options to install and run this project on the OpenShift Container Platform; use your own existing installation or to install on CodeReady Containers which provides you with a local OpenShift cluster.
  1. Ensure you have an OpenShift container based installation, such as one of the following:
  1. Run '' or 'init.bat' file. 'init.bat' must be run with Administrative privileges:
   # If using CodeReady Containers Easy Install project, just add the cluster address
   # to HOST_IP variable found at the top of the init.{sh|bat} files, for example:
   # HOST_IP=api.crc.testing  
   # Now run the script without arguments and it picks up that hostname as follows:
   $ ./
