How do I list the apps that have been deployed?
There is a handy HTML report in your cluster dev git repository at docs/README.md which lists all the charts deployed in every namespace with their version.
You can see the helm charts that are installed along with their version, namespaces and any configuration values by looking at the
releases section of your
helmfile/*/helmfile.yaml files in your cluster git repository.
You can browse all the kubernetes resources in each namespace using the canonical layout in the
config-root folder. e.g. all charts are versioned in git as follows:
config-root/ namespaces/ jx/ lighthouse/ lighthouse-webhooks-deploy.yaml
You can see the above kubernetes resource, a
Deployment with name
lighthouse-webhooks in the namespace
jx which comes from the
helm list --all-namespaces
How do I delete an application?
You can remove an application or helm chart from an environment by removing the
chart: entry in the
helmfiles/$namespace/helmfile.yaml file in your dev git repository and peforming a git commit and pushing the change (usually via a Pull Request).
Once the pull request is merged, the boot job will trigger which will remove the application from kubernetes.
Stopping new releases
If the application you are removing was released via Jenkins X then the next time there is a change committed to your applications git repsitory a new release will be triggered which will be promoted again.
So to stop new releases you need to remove the application from the
You should also ensure that the
SourceRepository has been deleted. Unfortunately when using
kubectl apply this doesn’t usually get removed (though it does with
kapp) so you may want to do:
# view all the SourceRepository resources: kubectl get sr # find the one that you want to remove then: kubectl delete sr $theNameToDelete
This will stop Jenkins X creating webhooks and firing pipelines when you make changes.
You may also want to remove the webhook from the repository to be safe.
How do I use dev pods?
See the inner loop documentation
How do I use Testcontainers?
If you want to use a container, such as a database, inside your pipeline so that you can run tests against your database inside your pipeline then use a sidecar container in Tekton.
If you want to use a separate container inside a preview environment then add charts or resources to the
