On this page you will install the Stackable ZooKeeper Operator.

Stackable Operators

There are 2 ways to run Stackable Operators

  1. Using stackablectl (recommended)

  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, use it to install the ZooKeeper Operator and its dependencies:

stackablectl operator install \
  commons=23.7.0 \
  secret=23.7.0 \

The tool will show

[INFO ] Installing commons operator in version 23.7.0
[INFO ] Installing secret operator in version 23.7.0
[INFO ] Installing zookeeper operator in version 23.7.0
Consult the Quickstart to learn more about how to use stackablectl. For example, you can use the -k 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 23.7.0
helm install --wait secret-operator stackable-stable/secret-operator --version 23.7.0
helm install --wait zookeeper-operator stackable-stable/zookeeper-operator --version 23.7.0

Helm will deploy the Operators in a Kubernetes Deployment and apply the CRDs for the ZooKeeper cluster. You are now ready to deploy Apache ZooKeeper in Kubernetes.
