Specify each parameter using the --set key=value[,key=value] argument to helm install. For example:

$ helm install kubed appscode/kubed -n kube-system --set replicaCount=1

Alternatively, a YAML file that specifies the values for the parameters can be provided while installing the chart. For example:

$ helm install kubed appscode/kubed -n kube-system --values values.yaml
