Two methods are supported for installing the Keptn Lifecycle Toolkit:
Releases v0.7.0 and later can be installed using the Helm Chart. This is the preferred strategy because it allows you to customize your cluster.
All releases can be installed using the manifests. This is the less-preferred way because it does not support customization.
Use Helm Chart
Version v0.7.0 and later of the Lifecycle Toolkit should be installed using Helm Charts. The command sequence to fetch and install the latest release is:
helm repo add klt https://charts.lifecycle.keptn.sh helm repo update helm upgrade --install keptn klt/klt \ -n keptn-lifecycle-toolkit-system --create-namespace --wait
Note that the
helm repo update command is used for fresh installs
as well as for upgrades.
--version <version> flag on the
helm upgrade --install command line to specify a different KLT version.
Use the following command sequence to see a list of available versions:
helm repo update helm search repo klt
To modify configuration options, download a copy of the helm/chart/values.yaml file, modify some values, and use the modified file to install KLT:
helm get values RELEASE_NAME [flags] > values.yaml

All versions of the Lifecycle Toolkit can be installed using manifests, although we recommend that you use Helm Charts to install Version 0.7.0 and later because the Helm Charts allow you to customize your configuration.
Versions 0.6.0 and earlier can only be installed using manifests.
Note When installing Version 0.6.0, you must first install the
cert-managerwith the following command sequence:
kubectl apply \ -f https://github.com/cert-manager/cert-manager/releases/download/v1.11.0/cert-manager.yaml kubectl wait \ --for=condition=Available deployment/cert-manager-webhook -n cert-manager --timeout=60s
Use a command sequence like the following to install the Lifecycle Toolkit from the manifest, specifying the version you want to install.
kubectl apply \ -f https://github.com/keptn/lifecycle-toolkit/releases/download/v0.6.0/manifest.yaml kubectl wait --for=condition=Available deployment/lifecycle-operator \ -n keptn-lifecycle-toolkit-system --timeout=120s
The Lifecycle Toolkit and its dependencies are now installed and ready to use.
