Step 1: Create a resource group.

Create a resource group using the az group create command.

The following example creates a resource group named pdfviewerresourcegroup in the eastus location.

az group create --name pdfviewerresourcegroup --location "East US"

Step 2: Create AKS cluster.

Use the az aks create command to create an AKS cluster. The following example creates a cluster named pdfviewercluster with one node.

az aks create --resource-group pdfviewerresourcegroup --name pdfviewercluster --node-count 1

Step 3: Connect to the cluster.

Install the kubectl into the workspace using the following command.

Copied to clipboard
az aks install-cli

To configure kubectl to connect to your Kubernetes cluster, use the az aks get-credentials command. This command downloads credentials and configures the Kubernetes CLI to use them.

Copied to clipboard
az aks get-credentials --resource-group pdfviewerresourcegroup --name pdfviewercluster

Step 4: Create services and deployments.

Kubernetes Services and Deployments can be configured in a file. To run the PDF Viewer server, you have to define a Service and a Deployment pdfviewerserver. To do this, create the pdfviewer-server.yaml file in the current directory using the following code.

apiVersion: apps/v1
kind: Deployment
metadata:
  labels:
app: pdfviewerserver
  name: pdfviewerserver
spec:
  replicas: 1
  selector:
matchLabels:
  app: pdfviewerserver
  strategy: {}
  template:
metadata:
  labels:
    app: pdfviewerserver
spec:
  containers:
  - image: syncfusion/pdfviewerserver:latest
    name: pdfviewerserver
    ports:
    - containerPort: 80
    env:
    - name: SYNCFUSION_LICENSE_KEY
      value: "YOUR_LICENSE_KEY"
---
apiVersion: v1
kind: Service
metadata:
  labels:
app: pdfviewerserver
  name: pdfviewerserver
spec:
  ports:
  - port: 80
targetPort: 80
  selector:
app: pdfviewerserver
  type: LoadBalancer

Step 5: To create all Services and Deployments needed to run the PDF Viewer server, execute the following.

Copied to clipboard
kubectl create -f ./pdfviewer-server.yaml

Run the following command to get the Kubernetes cluster deployed with service details and copy the external IP address of the PDF Viewer service.

Copied to clipboard
kubectl get all

Browse the copied external IP address and navigate to the PDF Viewer Web API control http://<external-ip>/api/pdfviewer. It returns the default get method response.

Step 6: Append the Kubernetes service running the URL http://<external-ip>/api/pdfviewer to the service URL in the client-side PDF Viewer control. For more information about how to get started with the PDF Viewer control, refer to this getting started page.
