Zora requires an existing Kubernetes cluster accessible via kubectl. After the installation process this cluster will be your management cluster with the Zora components installed. So it is recommended to keep it separated from any application workload.

Setup Requirements

Zora's management cluster requires these programs in order to be installed and configured:

  • Kubernetes >= 1.21.0
  • Helm >= 3.4.0
  • Kubectl
  • Awk
  • Cat
  • POSIX shell

Install with Helm

  1. To install Zora using Helm follow these commands:
helm repo add undistro --force-update
helm repo update undistro
helm upgrade --install zora undistro/zora \
  -n zora-system \
  --create-namespace --wait


The Helm chart repository has been updated from to

The --force-update flag is needed to update the repository URL.

These commands deploy Zora to the Kubernetes cluster. This section lists the parameters that can be configured during installation.

Access to the UI

The output of helm install and helm upgrade commands contains instructions to access Zora UI based on the provided parameters.

You can get the instructions anytime by running:

helm get notes zora -n zora-system


helm delete zora -n zora-system
kubectl delete namespace zora-system
