Clone the repository, and checkout the branch you want to deploy:
git clone email@example.com:gitlab-org/charts/gitlab.git git checkout <BRANCH_NAME>
Note: You can test changes to external dependencies by modifying
It is possible to test external dependencies using a local repository. Use
file://PATH_TO_DEPENDENCY_REPOwhere the path may be relative to the chartpath or absolute. For example, if using
/home/USER/charts/gitlabas the main checkout and
/home/USER/charts/gitlab-runner, the relative path would be
file://../gitlab-runner/and the absolute path would be
file:///home/USER/charts/gitlab-runner/. Pay close attention with absolute paths as it is very easy to miss the leading slash on the filepath.
Other steps from the installation documentation still apply. The difference is when deploying a development branch, you need to add additional upstream repos and update the local dependencies, then pass the local Git repo location to the Helm command.
From within your Git checkout of the repo, run the following Helm commands to install:
helm dependency update helm upgrade --install gitlab . \ --timeout 600s \ --set global.imagePullPolicy=Always \ --set global.hosts.domain=example.com \ --set global.hosts.externalIP=10.10.10.10 \ --set firstname.lastname@example.org
--timeoutoption in the Deployment documentation.
