Create a new project
A Kalix project must have a name and can have a description. It is good practice to name and describe the project so that you and other project members can identify it and its purpose.
A project is created in a region determining the cloud provider and the geographical region within that provider.
To create a new project, follow the steps below:
If you haven’t done so yet, install the Kalix CLI and log into your account:
kalix auth login
Create a project by substituting your project name and placing a short project description name in quotes, followed by the
regionflag and last the
organizationflag. Check for the available regions with
kalix regions list. The region list command will also print the organizations.
kalix projects new <projectname> "project description" --region=<region> --organizaton=<org>
kalix projects new my-kalix-proj "My Kalix Project" --region=gcp-us-east1 --organization=my-organization
