keptn create project

Creates a new project


Creates a new project with the provided name and shipyard file. The shipyard file describes the used stages. These stages are defined by name, deployment-, test-, and remediation strategy.

By executing the create project command, Keptn initializes an internal Git repository that is used to maintain all project-related resources. To upstream this internal Git repository to a remote repository, the Git user (–git-user), an access token (–git-token), and the remote URL (–git-remote-url) are required.
