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. Check for the available regions with
kalix regions list.
kalix projects new <projectname> "project description" --region=<region>
kalix projects new my-kalix-proj "My Kalix Project" --region=gcp-us-east1
When the command is successfully completed a response is returned similar to the following:
NAME DESCRIPTION ID OWNER REGION my-kalix-proj "My .. xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx id:"xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx" gcp-us-east1 'my-kalix-proj' is now the currently active project.
To create the project within a particular organization, add the
kalix projects new orgs-kalix-proj "Kalix Project in Organization" --region=gcp-us-east1 --organization my-organization
Project names must conform to the following:
