Policy checks that run immediate before a task deletes a spinnaker manifest.

If your policy is for controlling deletion from within a pipeline, more information is available in policies written against the spinnaker.deployment.tasks.before.deployManifest package.

If your policy is for controlling manual deletion triggers from within the Armory Continuous Deployment UI that are not triggered via a pipeline, more information is available in policies written against the spinnaker.http.authz package.

Example Policy

This example policy prevents deleteManifest tasks from running unless they provide a grace period of 30 seconds or more.

package spinnaker.deployment.tasks.before.deleteManifest

deny["A minimum 30 second grace period must be given when deleting a kubernetes manifest"] { 


Key Type Description
input.deploy.account string The account being deployed to.
input.deploy.credentials string The credentials to use to access the account.
input.deploy.labelSelectors.empty boolean
input.deploy.labelSelectors.notEmpty boolean
input.deploy.location string The name of the namespace from which the manifest is being deleted.
input.deploy.manifestName string The name of the manifest being deleted.
input.deploy.options.apiVersion string The API version in which the manifest’s kind is defined.
input.deploy.options.dryRun boolean If true then the manifest is not actually deleted. if false it is.
input.deploy.options.gracePeriodSeconds number How many seconds should the resource being deleted be given to shut down gracefully before being forcefully shut down.
input.deploy.options.kind string The kind of manifest that is being deleted.
input.deploy.options.orphanDependents boolean When set, delete all resources managed by this resource as well (all pods owned by a replica set). When unset, this may orphan resources.
input.deploy.options.propagationPolicy string There are three different ways to delete a Kubernetes object:
Foreground: The object itself cannot be deleted unless the objects that it owns have already been deleted.
Background: The object itself is deleted, then the objects that it owned are automatically deleted.
Orphan: The object itself is deleted. Any objects it owns are “orphaned.”
