On this page you will install the Stackable Superset Operator as well as the commons, secret and listener Operator which are required by all Stackable Operators.

Stackable Operators

There are 2 ways to run Stackable Operators

  1. Using stackablectl

  2. Using Helm


stackablectl is the command line tool to interact with Stackable operators and our recommended way to install Operators. Follow the installation steps for your platform.

After you have installed stackablectl, run the following command to install all Operators necessary for Superset:

stackablectl operator install \
  commons=23.11.0 \
  secret=23.11.0 \
  listener=23.11.0 \

The tool will show

[INFO ] Installing commons operator
[INFO ] Installing secret operator
[INFO ] Installing listener operator
[INFO ] Installing superset operator
Consult the Quickstart to learn more about how to use stackablectl. For example, you can use the --cluster kind flag to create a Kubernetes cluster with kind.


You can also use Helm to install the Operators. Add the Stackable Helm repository:

helm repo add stackable-stable

Then install the Stackable Operators:

helm install --wait commons-operator stackable-stable/commons-operator --version 23.11.0
helm install --wait secret-operator stackable-stable/secret-operator --version 23.11.0
helm install --wait listener-operator stackable-stable/listener-operator --version 23.11.0
helm install --wait superset-operator stackable-stable/superset-operator --version 23.11.0

Helm will deploy the Operators in a Kubernetes Deployment and apply the CRDs for the Superset service (as well as the CRDs for the required operators). You are now ready to deploy Superset in Kubernetes.
