First, install this tool in local:

brew tap jenkins-x/jx 
brew install jx

Check here for installing the tool in other OS’s than MAC. And now issue this command to deploy on the k8s cluster of the oracle provider (oke):

jx install --provider=oke

Follow instructions and  command prompts and you’ll get them’all stuff installed if a few minutes:
