Using Helm charts
How to use Helm charts with your Release instances.
Helm is a package manager for Kubernetes. Helm Charts are used to describe related collections of Kubernetes resources. You can use Helm with Release.
You can configure Helm by adding a
values.yamlfile to your project repository. As an example, you can see our Helm Ingress repository on GitHub, which configures a Helm chart for generating an ingress for your application.
One Helm chart might deploy several instances. You can see these in the same way that you view other instances in an environment. Visit your environment and scroll down on the "Details" page to see all your running instances, including those deployed by Helm.
If you want to view the helm charts that are deployed to your Release cluster, you should download and configure Kubectl on your local machine. This will give you access to the
helmcommand, and you can see your deployed charts by running commands such as
helm get all jenkins -n jenkins
You can inject any environment variables defined in your Release configuration into your Helm
values.yamlfile. See the example below.
