Implement DevOps in Google Cloud: Challenge Lab

1 hour 30 minutes 9 Credits


Google Cloud Self-Paced Labs


In this Challenge Lab, you're given a scenario, a set of tasks, and a challenge. You then use what you learned in the Implement DevOps in Google Cloud Quest to figure out how to complete the challenge on your own within the time provided! An automated scoring system (shown on this page) provides feedback on whether you completed your tasks correctly.

To score 100% you must complete all tasks within the time period!

A Challenge Lab does not teach Google Cloud concepts. Instead, it challenges you to use what you learned in a quest to build the solution to a scenario. You are expected to extend your learned skills; you are expected to change default values, but new concepts are not introduced.

This lab is recommended only if you've completed the labs in the Implement DevOps in the Google Cloud Quest.

Topics tested

  • Use Jenkins console logs to resolve application deployment issues.
  • Deploy and a development update to a sample application for Jenkins to deply using a development pipeline.
  • Deploy and test a Kubernetes Canary deployment for a sample application.
  • Push the Canary application branch to master and confirm this triggers a production pipeline update.

Are you up for the challenge?

You must wait for the lab setup to finish before making any changes. The Kubernetes cluster and Jenkins environment are setup automatically for you when the lab is started and that process takes about five minutes. While you wait for the setup to complete you should use the time to read through the scenario, explore the lab environment, and take note of the tips and tricks at the end of the instructions.


Before you click the Start Lab button

Read these instructions. Labs are timed and you cannot pause them. The timer, which starts when you click Start Lab, shows how long Google Cloud resources will be made available to you.

This Qwiklabs hands-on lab lets you do the lab activities yourself in a real cloud environment, not in a simulation or demo environment. It does so by giving you new, temporary credentials that you use to sign in and access Google Cloud for the duration of the lab.
