Bootstrap configuration

You can create a bootstrapping script and Helm will run it right after Waldur release installation.

Example script:

1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
  #!/bin/bash
  set -e

  echo "[+] Creating staff user"
  waldur createstaffuser -u admin -p admin -e admin@example.com
  echo "[+] Done"

  exit 0

This script with all necessary additional files should be placed in bootstrap.dir directory.

Additional configuration variables (bootstrap prefix):

  1. enabled - enable/disable bootstrap
  2. script - main script file in bootstrap.dir folder.
  3. dir - directory with all bootstrap files

Moreover, that is better to install release with --wait flag:

1
  helm install waldur waldur/ --wait --timeout 10m0s

This allows running migrations job before a bootstrap one. more info: link, Hooks and the Release Lifecycle section)

NB:

  • A script, which contains interaction with a db can fail due to not all migrations are applied. Automatical reruning of the bootstrap job is normal behaviour in such situations.

  • Hence, the script should be idempotent.
