env-group

This preview environments driver can be used to fetch an env group from Porter. Note: The driver creates the env group if it does not exist. The config section, when using this driver, supports the following properties:

  • env_groups [Array of Objects, required] - the list of env groups to fetch from Porter, with the following properties:
    • name [String, required] - the name of the env group
    • namespace [String, required] - the namespace of the env group. If nothing is set then the target.namespace is chosen.
    • variables [Map of String keys to String values, required] - the map of variables to create on first run.

This driver requires the Porter project, cluster IDs set via target in order to talk to Porter.

For example, to fetch (or create on first run) an env group, the following can be done:

---
resources:
- name: my-env-groups
driver: env-group
config:
env_groups:
- name: some-env-group
namespace: sample-ns
variables:
MY_KEY: MY_VALUE
ANOTHER_KEY: ANOTHER_VALUE

Outputs

This driver outputs all variables from all the env groups it fetches inside the <env_group_name>.variables identifier. The following can be done:
