Managing Helm Releases

Use ozone to deploy applications that are packaged as a helm chart

Pre-requisites

  • You must have a helm channel setup to sync charts
  • You must have created a helm application

Syncing a helm channel

Ozone supports two types of helm channels:
  • Public helm channels, which implies that they are hosted over https and are available for general public access
  • Private helm channels, which are typically hosted on custom instances such as harbor or jfrog and are available on a private network

To sync a public helm channel, follow the procedure listed below

  • Navigate to resources on the side bar
  • Select Helm Channels, the default tab is for the registered public helm channel instances
  • Click on +New Channel
  • Fill in the URL, name and description
  • Charts are synced and are visible in the "Charts" tab
To sync a private helm channel, follow the procedure listed below
We currently support Harbor and JFrog instances as private helm channel sources. These must be diallable from Ozone's Control Plane as a pre-requisite.
  • Click on +New Channel
  • Select Helm Channels, the default tab is for the registered public helm channel instances
  • Navigate to resources on the side bar
  • Select Private Helm channel tab
  • Click on +New Channel
  • Choose the type of private helm channel provider and fill in the authentication credentials
  • On click of Save, charts are synced and are visible in the Charts tab

Creating a helm microservice

We abstract a chart as a helm microservice in order to manage the state of the deployed workload. With ozone's RBAC, the team can manage helm releases visually on any synced Kubernetes cluster with minimal day 2 operations from the Platform Engineering teams.
  • Navigate to Microservices on the sidebar
  • Click on +Create Microservice
  • Select the Helm Microservice option from the dropdown options
  • Give a name, description and map environments to the helm microservice
  • Choose any of the charts that you would like to manage releases for
  • Click on +Create

Deploying a Helm Microservice

Deploy, Upgrade and Edit Helm charts on any kubernetes clusters using Ozone.
To deploy a helm microservice, follow the steps given below:
  • Navigate to helm releases on the sidebar
  • Click on +Create Helm Release
  • Enter the release name
  • Add the target cluster(s) and the namespace(s) that you would like this microservice to deploy to
  • The helm microservice should now be deployed to the target environment
