Enable the Evaluate Artifacts Stage
Some artifact types and their associated stages, such as Kubernetes, support using SpEL to read parameters from the Spinnaker context and inject them into an artifacts manifest at deploy time. Other stages, such as the Terraform Integration stage, do not support this out of the box. The Evaluate Artifacts Stage plugin adds supports for evaluating SpEL against any artifact within your Spinnaker pipeline.
For information about how to use the stage, see Use the Evaluate Artifacts Stage.
Before you begin
- If you are new to enabling plugins, read Spinnaker’s Plugin Users Guide to familiarize yourself with how plugins to Armory Continuous Deployment work.
- The Evaluate Artifacts Stage requires Armory Continuous Deployment 2.24.x or later (Spinnaker 1.24.x or later)
Add the following snippet to your Spinnaker manifest, such as
spec: spinnakerConfig: profiles: spinnaker: spinnaker: # This second `spinnaker` is required extensibility: plugins: Armory.EvaluateArtifactsPlugin: enabled: true version: <PLUGIN_VERSION> # Replace with the version you want to use. For example, use 0.1.0. repositories: evaluateArtifacts: url: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/armory-plugins/evaluate-artifacts-releases/master/repositories.json gate: spinnaker: extensibility: deck-proxy: enabled: true plugins: Armory.EvaluateArtifactsPlugin: enabled: true version: <PLUGIN_VERSION> # Replace with the version you want to use. For example, use 0.1.0.
Keep the following in mind when using this configuration snippet:
- Make sure to include the nested
spinnakerparameter. Both are required because of how Armory Continuous Deployment consumes plugin configurations.
<PLUGIN_VERSION>on lines 10 and 22 with the version of the plugin that you want to use. Plugin versions can be found here.
Then, deploy your updated Armory Continuous Deployment configuration using one of the following methods:
If you are using a single manifest file:
kubectl -n <namespace> apply -f <path-to-manifest-file>
If you are using Kustomize patches like the ones in the Armory kustomize repo, you need to apply the kustomization. Depending on how you have Kustomize installed (either directly or as part of
kubectl), use one of the following commands:
Kustomize is installed separately from
# The namespace is declared in kustomization.yml # Run this from the same directory as your kustomization.yml file kustomize build | kubectl apply -f -
Kustomize is bundled with
kubctl -n <namespace> apply -k <path-to-kustomize-directory>
- 0.1.1 - Update plugin to be compatible with Armory Continuous Deployment 2.27.0 and later
- 0.1.0 - Improved the user experience. Execution errors for the stage now display in the UI.
- 0.0.10 - Initial Release
