helm

Modules are deprecated and will be removed in version 0.14. Please use action-based configuration instead. See the 0.12 to Bonsai migration guide for details.

Description

Specify a Helm chart (either in your repository or remote from a registry) to deploy.

Refer to the Helm guide for usage instructions.

Garden uses Helm 3.14.0.

Below is the full schema reference. For an introduction to configuring Garden modules, please look at our Configuration guide.

The first section contains the complete YAML schema, and the second section describes each schema key.

helm modules also export values that are available in template strings. See the Outputs section below for details.

Complete YAML Schema

The values in the schema below are the default values.

kind: Module

# The type of this module.
type:

# The name of this module.
name:

# Specify how to build the module. Note that plugins may define additional keys on this object.
build:
  # A list of modules that must be built before this module is built.
  dependencies:
    - # Module name to build ahead of this module.
      name:

      # Specify one or more files or directories to copy from the built dependency to this module.
      copy:
        - # POSIX-style path or filename of the directory or file(s) to copy to the target.
          source:

          # POSIX-style path or filename to copy the directory or file(s), relative to the build directory.
          # Defaults to the same as source path.
          target:

  # Maximum time in seconds to wait for build to finish.
  timeout: 600

# If set to true, Garden will run the build command, services, tests, and tasks in the module source directory,
# instead of in the Garden build directory (under .garden/build/<module-name>).
#
# Garden will therefore not stage the build for local modules. This means that include/exclude filters
# and ignore files are not applied to local modules, except to calculate the module/action versions.
#
# If you use use `build.dependencies[].copy` for one or more build dependencies of this module, the copied files
# will be copied to the module source directory (instead of the build directory, as is the default case when
# `local = false`).
#
# Note: This maps to the `buildAtSource` option in this module's generated Build action (if any).
local: false

# A description of the module.
description:

# Set this to `true` to disable the module. You can use this with conditional template strings to disable modules
# based on, for example, the current environment or other variables (e.g. `disabled: ${environment.name == "prod"}`).
# This can be handy when you only need certain modules for specific environments, e.g. only for development.
#
# Disabling a module means that any services, tasks and tests contained in it will not be deployed or run. It also
# means that the module is not built _unless_ it is declared as a build dependency by another enabled module (in which
# case building this module is necessary for the dependant to be built).
#
# If you disable the module, and its services, tasks or tests are referenced as _runtime_ dependencies, Garden will
# automatically ignore those dependency declarations. Note however that template strings referencing the module's
# service or task outputs (i.e. runtime outputs) will fail to resolve when the module is disabled, so you need to make
# sure to provide alternate values for those if you're using them, using conditional expressions.
disabled: false

# Specify a list of POSIX-style paths or globs that should be regarded as the source files for this module. Files that
# do *not* match these paths or globs are excluded when computing the version of the module, when responding to
# filesystem watch events, and when staging builds.
#
# Note that you can also _exclude_ files using the `exclude` field or by placing `.gardenignore` files in your source
# tree, which use the same format as `.gitignore` files. See the [Configuration Files
# guide](https://docs.garden.io/using-garden/configuration-overview#including-excluding-files-and-directories) for
# details.
#
# Also note that specifying an empty list here means _no sources_ should be included.
#
# If neither `include` nor `exclude` is set, and the module has local chart sources, Garden
# automatically sets `include` to: `["*", "charts/**/*", "templates/**/*"]`.
#
# If neither `include` nor `exclude` is set and the module specifies a remote chart, Garden
# automatically sets `ìnclude` to `[]`.
include:

# Specify a list of POSIX-style paths or glob patterns that should be excluded from the module. Files that match these
# paths or globs are excluded when computing the version of the module, when responding to filesystem watch events,
# and when staging builds.
#
# Note that you can also explicitly _include_ files using the `include` field. If you also specify the `include`
# field, the files/patterns specified here are filtered from the files matched by `include`. See the [Configuration
# Files guide](https://docs.garden.io/using-garden/configuration-overview#including-excluding-files-and-directories)
# for details.
#
# Unlike the `scan.exclude` field in the project config, the filters here have _no effect_ on which files and
# directories are watched for changes. Use the project `scan.exclude` field to affect those, if you have large
# directories that should not be watched for changes.
exclude:

# A remote repository URL. Currently only supports git servers. Must contain a hash suffix pointing to a specific
# branch or tag, with the format: <git remote url>#<branch|tag>
#
# Garden will import the repository source code into this module, but read the module's config from the local
# garden.yml file.
repositoryUrl:

# When false, disables pushing this module to remote registries via the publish command.
allowPublish: true

# A list of files to write to the module directory when resolving this module. This is useful to automatically
# generate (and template) any supporting files needed for the module.
generateFiles:
  - # POSIX-style filename to read the source file contents from, relative to the path of the module (or the
    # ConfigTemplate configuration file if one is being applied).
    # This file may contain template strings, much like any other field in the configuration.
    sourcePath:

    # POSIX-style filename to write the resolved file contents to, relative to the path of the module source directory
    # (for remote modules this means the root of the module repository, otherwise the directory of the module
    # configuration).
    #
    # Note that any existing file with the same name will be overwritten. If the path contains one or more
    # directories, they will be automatically created if missing.
    targetPath:

    # By default, Garden will attempt to resolve any Garden template strings in source files. Set this to false to
    # skip resolving template strings. Note that this does not apply when setting the `value` field, since that's
    # resolved earlier when parsing the configuration.
    resolveTemplates: true

    # The desired file contents as a string.
    value:

# A map of variables scoped to this particular module. These are resolved before any other parts of the module
# configuration and take precedence over project-scoped variables. They may reference project-scoped variables, and
# generally use any template strings normally allowed when resolving modules.
variables:

# Specify a path (relative to the module root) to a file containing variables, that we apply on top of the
# module-level `variables` field.
#
# The format of the files is determined by the configured file's extension:
#
# * `.env` - Standard "dotenv" format, as defined by [dotenv](https://github.com/motdotla/dotenv#rules).
# * `.yaml`/`.yml` - YAML. The file must consist of a YAML document, which must be a map (dictionary). Keys may
# contain any value type.
# * `.json` - JSON. Must contain a single JSON _object_ (not an array).
#
# _NOTE: The default varfile format will change to YAML in Garden v0.13, since YAML allows for definition of nested
# objects and arrays._
#
# To use different module-level varfiles in different environments, you can template in the environment name
# to the varfile name, e.g. `varfile: "my-module.${environment.name}.env` (this assumes that the corresponding
# varfiles exist).
varfile:

# A valid Kubernetes namespace name. Must be a valid RFC1035/RFC1123 (DNS) label (may contain lowercase letters,
# numbers and dashes, must start with a letter, and cannot end with a dash) and must not be longer than 63 characters.
namespace:

# Manually specify port forwards that Garden should set up when deploying in dev or watch mode. If specified, these
# override the auto-detection of forwardable ports, so you'll need to specify the full list of port forwards to
# create.
portForwards:
  - # An identifier to describe the port forward.
    name:

    # The full resource kind and name to forward to, e.g. Service/my-service or Deployment/my-deployment. Note that
    # Garden will not validate this ahead of attempting to start the port forward, so you need to make sure this is
    # correctly set. The types of resources supported will match that of the `kubectl port-forward` CLI command.
    resource:

    # The port number on the remote resource to forward to.
    targetPort:

    # The _preferred_ local port to forward from. If none is set, a random port is chosen. If the specified port is
    # not available, a warning is shown and a random port chosen instead.
    localPort:

# Optionally override the release name used when installing (defaults to the Deploy name).
releaseName:

# Time in seconds to wait for Helm to complete any individual Kubernetes operation (like Jobs for hooks).
timeout: 300

# Map of values to pass to Helm when rendering the templates. May include arrays and nested objects. When specified,
# these take precedence over the values in the `values.yaml` file (or the files specified in `valueFiles`).
values: {}

# Specify value files to use when rendering the Helm chart. These will take precedence over the `values.yaml` file
# bundled in the Helm chart, and should be specified in ascending order of precedence. Meaning, the last file in
# this list will have the highest precedence.
#
# If you _also_ specify keys under the `values` field, those will effectively be added as another file at the end
# of this list, so they will take precedence over other files listed here.
#
# Note that the paths here should be relative to the _config_ root, and the files should be contained in
# this action config's directory.
valueFiles: []

# Whether to set the --atomic flag during installs and upgrades. Set to false if e.g. you want to see more information
# about failures and then manually roll back, instead of having Helm do it automatically on failure.
atomicInstall: true

# The name of another `helm` module to use as a base for this one. Use this to re-use a Helm chart across multiple
# services. For example, you might have an organization-wide base chart for certain types of services.
# If set, this module will by default inherit the following properties from the base module: `serviceResource`,
# `values`
# Each of those can be overridden in this module. They will be merged with a JSON Merge Patch (RFC 7396).
base:

# A valid Helm chart name or URI (same as you'd input to `helm install`) Required if the action doesn't contain the
# Helm chart itself.
chart:

# The path, relative to the module path, to the chart sources (i.e. where the Chart.yaml file is, if any). Not used
# when `base` is specified.
chartPath: .

# List of names of services that should be deployed before this chart.
dependencies: []

# Specifies which files or directories to sync to which paths inside the running containers of the service when it's
# in sync mode, and overrides for the container command and/or arguments.
#
# Note that `serviceResource` must also be specified to enable sync.
#
# Sync is enabled by setting the `--sync` flag on the `garden deploy` command.
#
# See the [Code Synchronization guide](https://docs.garden.io/guides/code-synchronization) for more information.
sync:
  # Override the default container arguments when in sync mode.
  args:

  # Override the default container command (i.e. entrypoint) when in sync mode.
  command:

  # Specify one or more source files or directories to automatically sync with the running container.
  paths:
    - # Path to a local directory to be synchronized with the target.
      # This should generally be a templated path to another action's source path (e.g.
      # `${actions.build.my-container-image.sourcePath}`), or a relative path.
      # If a path is hard-coded, we recommend sticking with relative paths here, and using forward slashes (`/`) as a
      # delimiter, as Windows-style paths with back slashes (`\`) and absolute paths will work on some platforms, but
      # they are not portable and will not work for users on other platforms.
      # Defaults to the Deploy action's config's directory if no value is provided.
      source: .

      # POSIX-style absolute path to sync to inside the container. The root path (i.e. "/") is not allowed.

# The selected container of the target Kubernetes resource will be replaced by a proxy container which runs an SSH
# server to proxy requests.
# Reverse port-forwarding will be automatically configured to route traffic to the locally run application and back.

Maximum time in seconds to wait for build to finish.

TypeDefaultRequired

number

No

local

If set to true, Garden will run the build command, services, tests, and tasks in the module source directory, instead of in the Garden build directory (under .garden/build/).

Garden will therefore not stage the build for local modules. This means that include/exclude filters and ignore files are not applied to local modules, except to calculate the module/action versions.

If you use use build.dependencies[].copy for one or more build dependencies of this module, the copied files will be copied to the module source directory (instead of the build directory, as is the default case when local = false).

Note: This maps to the buildAtSource option in this module's generated Build action (if any).

TypeDefaultRequired

boolean

false

No

description

A description of the module.

TypeRequired

string

No

disabled

Set this to true to disable the module. You can use this with conditional template strings to disable modules based on, for example, the current environment or other variables (e.g. disabled: ${environment.name == "prod"}). This can be handy when you only need certain modules for specific environments, e.g. only for development.

Disabling a module means that any services, tasks and tests contained in it will not be deployed or run. It also means that the module is not built unless it is declared as a build dependency by another enabled module (in which case building this module is necessary for the dependant to be built).

If you disable the module, and its services, tasks or tests are referenced as runtime dependencies, Garden will automatically ignore those dependency declarations. Note however that template strings referencing the module's service or task outputs (i.e. runtime outputs) will fail to resolve when the module is disabled, so you need to make sure to provide alternate values for those if you're using them, using conditional expressions.

TypeDefaultRequired

boolean

false

No

include[]

Specify a list of POSIX-style paths or globs that should be regarded as the source files for this module. Files that do not match these paths or globs are excluded when computing the version of the module, when responding to filesystem watch events, and when staging builds.

Note that you can also exclude files using the exclude field or by placing .gardenignore files in your source tree, which use the same format as .gitignore files. See the Configuration Files guide for details.

Also note that specifying an empty list here means no sources should be included.

If neither include nor exclude is set, and the module has local chart sources, Garden automatically sets include to: ["*", "charts/**/*", "templates/**/*"].

If neither include nor exclude is set and the module specifies a remote chart, Garden automatically sets ìnclude to [].

TypeRequired

array[posixPath]

No

Example:

include:
  - Dockerfile
  - my-app.js

exclude[]

Specify a list of POSIX-style paths or glob patterns that should be excluded from the module. Files that match these paths or globs are excluded when computing the version of the module, when responding to filesystem watch events, and when staging builds.

Note that you can also explicitly include files using the include field. If you also specify the include field, the files/patterns specified here are filtered from the files matched by include. See the Configuration Files guide for details.

Unlike the scan.exclude field in the project config, the filters here have no effect on which files and directories are watched for changes. Use the project scan.exclude field to affect those, if you have large directories that should not be watched for changes.

TypeRequired

array[posixPath]

No

Example:

exclude:
  - tmp/**/*
  - '*.log'

repositoryUrl

A remote repository URL. Currently only supports git servers. Must contain a hash suffix pointing to a specific branch or tag, with the format: #<branch|tag>

Garden will import the repository source code into this module, but read the module's config from the local garden.yml file.

TypeRequired

gitUrl | string

No

Example:

repositoryUrl: "git+https://github.com/org/repo.git#v2.0"

allowPublish

When false, disables pushing this module to remote registries via the publish command.

TypeDefaultRequired

boolean

true

No

generateFiles[]

A list of files to write to the module directory when resolving this module. This is useful to automatically generate (and template) any supporting files needed for the module.

TypeDefaultRequired

array[object]

[]

No

generateFiles[].sourcePath

generateFiles > sourcePath

POSIX-style filename to read the source file contents from, relative to the path of the module (or the ConfigTemplate configuration file if one is being applied). This file may contain template strings, much like any other field in the configuration.

TypeRequired

posixPath

No

generateFiles[].targetPath

generateFiles > targetPath

POSIX-style filename to write the resolved file contents to, relative to the path of the module source directory (for remote modules this means the root of the module repository, otherwise the directory of the module configuration).

Note that any existing file with the same name will be overwritten. If the path contains one or more directories, they will be automatically created if missing.

TypeRequired

posixPath

Yes

generateFiles[].resolveTemplates

generateFiles > resolveTemplates

By default, Garden will attempt to resolve any Garden template strings in source files. Set this to false to skip resolving template strings. Note that this does not apply when setting the value field, since that's resolved earlier when parsing the configuration.

TypeDefaultRequired

boolean

true

No

generateFiles[].value

generateFiles > value

The desired file contents as a string.

TypeRequired

string

No

variables

A map of variables scoped to this particular module. These are resolved before any other parts of the module configuration and take precedence over project-scoped variables. They may reference project-scoped variables, and generally use any template strings normally allowed when resolving modules.

TypeRequired

object

No

varfile

Specify a path (relative to the module root) to a file containing variables, that we apply on top of the module-level variables field.

The format of the files is determined by the configured file's extension:

  • .env - Standard "dotenv" format, as defined by dotenv.

  • .yaml/.yml - YAML. The file must consist of a YAML document, which must be a map (dictionary). Keys may contain any value type.

  • .json - JSON. Must contain a single JSON object (not an array).

NOTE: The default varfile format will change to YAML in Garden v0.13, since YAML allows for definition of nested objects and arrays.

To use different module-level varfiles in different environments, you can template in the environment name to the varfile name, e.g. varfile: "my-module.${environment.name}.env (this assumes that the corresponding varfiles exist).

TypeRequired

posixPath

No

Example:

varfile: "my-module.env"

namespace

A valid Kubernetes namespace name. Must be a valid RFC1035/RFC1123 (DNS) label (may contain lowercase letters, numbers and dashes, must start with a letter, and cannot end with a dash) and must not be longer than 63 characters.

TypeRequired

string

No

portForwards[]

Manually specify port forwards that Garden should set up when deploying in dev or watch mode. If specified, these override the auto-detection of forwardable ports, so you'll need to specify the full list of port forwards to create.

TypeRequired

array[object]

No

portForwards[].name

portForwards > name

An identifier to describe the port forward.

TypeRequired

string

No

portForwards[].resource

portForwards > resource

The full resource kind and name to forward to, e.g. Service/my-service or Deployment/my-deployment. Note that Garden will not validate this ahead of attempting to start the port forward, so you need to make sure this is correctly set. The types of resources supported will match that of the kubectl port-forward CLI command.

TypeRequired

string

Yes

portForwards[].targetPort

portForwards > targetPort

The port number on the remote resource to forward to.

TypeRequired

number

Yes

portForwards[].localPort

portForwards > localPort

The preferred local port to forward from. If none is set, a random port is chosen. If the specified port is not available, a warning is shown and a random port chosen instead.

TypeRequired

number

No

releaseName

Optionally override the release name used when installing (defaults to the Deploy name).

TypeRequired

string

No

timeout

Time in seconds to wait for Helm to complete any individual Kubernetes operation (like Jobs for hooks).

TypeDefaultRequired

number

300

No

values

Map of values to pass to Helm when rendering the templates. May include arrays and nested objects. When specified, these take precedence over the values in the values.yaml file (or the files specified in valueFiles).

TypeDefaultRequired

object

{}

No

valueFiles[]

Specify value files to use when rendering the Helm chart. These will take precedence over the values.yaml file bundled in the Helm chart, and should be specified in ascending order of precedence. Meaning, the last file in this list will have the highest precedence.

If you also specify keys under the values field, those will effectively be added as another file at the end of this list, so they will take precedence over other files listed here.

Note that the paths here should be relative to the config root, and the files should be contained in this action config's directory.

TypeDefaultRequired

array[posixPath]

[]

No

atomicInstall

Whether to set the --atomic flag during installs and upgrades. Set to false if e.g. you want to see more information about failures and then manually roll back, instead of having Helm do it automatically on failure.

TypeDefaultRequired

boolean

true

No

base

The name of another helm module to use as a base for this one. Use this to re-use a Helm chart across multiple services. For example, you might have an organization-wide base chart for certain types of services. If set, this module will by default inherit the following properties from the base module: serviceResource, values Each of those can be overridden in this module. They will be merged with a JSON Merge Patch (RFC 7396).

TypeRequired

string

No

Example:

base: "my-base-chart"

chart

A valid Helm chart name or URI (same as you'd input to helm install) Required if the action doesn't contain the Helm chart itself.

TypeRequired

string

No

Example:

chart: "ingress-nginx"

chartPath

sync

Specifies which files or directories to sync to which paths inside the running containers of the service when it's in sync mode, and overrides for the container command and/or arguments.

Note that serviceResource must also be specified to enable sync.

Sync is enabled by setting the --sync flag on the garden deploy command.

See the Code Synchronization guide for more information.

sync > paths

Specify one or more source files or directories to automatically sync with the running container.

TypeRequired

array[object]

No

sync.paths[].source

sync > paths > source

Path to a local directory to be synchronized with the target. This should generally be a templated path to another action's source path (e.g. ${actions.build.my-container-image.sourcePath}), or a relative path. If a path is hard-coded, we recommend sticking with relative paths here, and using forward slashes (/) as a delimiter, as Windows-style paths with back slashes (\) and absolute paths will work on some platforms, but they are not portable and will not work for users on other platforms. Defaults to the Deploy action's config's directory if no value is provided.

TypeDefaultRequired

string

"."

No

Example:

sync:
  ...
  paths:
    - source: "src"

sync.paths[].target

localMode

[EXPERIMENTAL] Configures the local application which will send and receive network requests instead of the target resource specified by localMode.target or defaultTarget. One of those fields must be specified to enable local mode for the action.

The selected container of the target Kubernetes resource will be replaced by a proxy container which runs an SSH server to proxy requests. Reverse port-forwarding will be automatically configured to route traffic to the locally run application and back.

Local mode is enabled by setting the --local option on the garden deploy command. Local mode always takes the precedence over sync mode if there are any conflicting service names.

Health checks are disabled for services running in local mode.

See the Local Mode guide for more information.

Note! This feature is still experimental. Some incompatible changes can be made until the first non-experimental release.
