Add a Release
If advanced users of the Stackable Platform want to define their internal release within their company, they can easily add their release, which has the following benefits:
Identical operator versions across the whole company produce more uniform environments, making debugging and helping other teams easier.
Suppose the company is only interested in a subset of the available operators. In that case, you can only add your relevant operators to your release and install some other operators.
For a custom release you must create a
mycorp-releases.yaml containing releases according to the format defined by
the Stackable provided releases. You can pick any
number of operators in arbitrary versions.
As of writing, a
releases.yaml file could look as follows:
description: Internal release of the SDP
After creating the
mycorp-releases.yaml file, it can be added to the available releases in
stackablectl via the CLI
The argument to
--release-file can be a path to a file on the local filesystem or a URL. For example, the release file
can be put into a central Git repository and referenced by all teams or clients. Multiple "`--release-file` flags can be
specified to include multiple release files.
Additionally, the custom file can be provided using an environment variable. The variable can be defined by
the shell or a
Every additional release will be added to the already existing releases in
stackablectl, so all the available release
files will be merged.
