When using Auto DevOps, you can deploy different environments to different Kubernetes clusters.
The Deploy Job template used by Auto DevOps defines three environment names:
review/(every environment starting with
These environments are tied to jobs using Auto Deploy, so they must have different deployment domains. You must define separate
KUBE_INGRESS_BASE_DOMAIN variables for each of the three environments.
To deploy your environments to different Kubernetes clusters:
- Create Kubernetes clusters.
- Associate the clusters to your project:
- Install NGINX Ingress Controller in each cluster. Save the IP address and Kubernetes namespace for the next step.
Configure the Auto DevOps CI/CD Pipeline variables
- Set up a
KUBE_CONTEXTvariable for each environment. The value must point to the agent of the relevant cluster.
- Set up a
KUBE_INGRESS_BASE_DOMAIN. You must configure the base domain for each environment to point to the Ingress of the relevant cluster.
- Add a
KUBE_NAMESPACEvariable with a value of the Kubernetes namespace you want your deployments to target. You can scope the variable to multiple environments.
- Set up a
For deprecated, certificate-based clusters:
- Go to the project and select Infrastructure > Kubernetes clusters from the left sidebar.
- Set the environment scope of each cluster.
- For each cluster, add a domain based on its Ingress IP address.
*. You can set any of the clusters you’ve already added as a fallback cluster.
|Cluster name||Cluster environment scope||
||Variable environment scope||Notes|
|review||A review cluster that runs all Review Apps.|
|staging||Optional. A staging cluster that runs the deployments of the staging environments. You must enable it first.|
|production||A production cluster that runs the production environment deployments. You can use incremental rollouts.|
After completing configuration, test your setup by creating a merge request.
Verify whether your application deployed as a Review App in the Kubernetes
cluster with the
review/* environment scope. Similarly, check the
