In this scenario, we will experiment with deploying a Nomad job that uses Consul Connect in a cluster with ACLs enabled.

We will do that by:

  • Enabling and bootstrapping Consul ACLs

  • Creating Consul agent policy and token

  • Install Consul agent token

  • Creating Nomad server policy and token

  • Configure Nomad with Consul token

  • Running a Connect-enabled job

    • Creating a Connect intention
    • Running the job
    • Verifying the application is running
  • Requiring Consul authentication to run jobs

  • Running a Connect-enabled job with a token

Congratulations, you have learned how to run a Nomad Consul Connect job using an ACL-enabled consul cluster.
