This page shows you how to create your first Scaleway Elements Containers namespace. Namespaces allow you to group your containers and share environment variables between them.

  1. Click Containers in the Compute section of the side menu. The list of your Containers displays.

  2. Click Create a namespace. The Containers namespace creation wizard displays.

  3. Complete the following steps in the wizard:

    • Enter a name and optionally a description for your namespace. The name must only contain alphanumeric characters.
    • Choose a region, which is the geographical location in which your namespace will be deployed.
    • Enter any environment variables required for your namespace. Environment variables configured in a namespace will be available in all containers/apps within the same namespace. For each environment variable, click +Add and ender the key / value pair.
    • Verify the estimated cost.
  4. Click Create a namespace to finish.

Your namespace is now created and you are taken to its Containers tab.
