Setting up Namespace or project
To install IBM Certified Container Software for Connect:Direct for UNIX, you must have an existing namespace/project or create a new if required.
You can either use an existing namespace or create a new one in Kubernetes cluster. Similarly, you either use an existing project or create a new one in OpenShift cluster. A namespace or project is a cluster resource. So, it can only be created by a Cluster Administrator. Refer the following links for more details -
