Requirements

  • Kubernetes >= 1.14
  • Helm >= 2.17.0

See supported configurations for more details.

Installing

This chart is tested with the latest 7.10.2 version.

Install released version using Helm repository

  • Add the Elastic Helm charts repo: helm repo add elastic https://helm.elastic.co

  • Install it:

    • with Helm 3: helm install apm-server --version <version> elastic/apm-server
    • with Helm 2 (deprecated): helm install --name apm-server --version <version> elastic/apm-server

Install development version from a branch

  • Clone the git repo: git clone git@github.com:elastic/helm-charts.git

  • Checkout the branch : git checkout 7.10

  • Install it:

    • with Helm 3: helm install apm-server ./helm-charts/apm-server --set imageTag=7.10.2
    • with Helm 2 (deprecated): helm install --name apm-server ./helm-charts/apm-server --set imageTag=7.10.2

Upgrading

Please always check CHANGELOG.md and BREAKING_CHANGES.md before upgrading to a new chart version.

Usage notes

  • The default APM Server configuration file for this chart is configured to use an Elasticsearch endpoint as configured by the rest of these Helm charts. This can easily be overridden in the config value apmConfig.apm-server.yml.

  • Automated testing of this chart is currently only run against GKE (Google Kubernetes Engine).

  • This repo includes a number of examples configurations which can be used as a reference. They are also used in the automated testing of this chart.

FAQ

How to use APM Server with Elasticsearch with security (authentication and TLS) enabled?

This Helm chart can use existing Kubernetes secrets to setup credentials or certificates for examples. These secrets should be created outside of this chart and accessed using environment variables and volumes.

An example can be found in examples/security.

How to install OSS version of APM Server?

Deploying OSS version of Elasticsearch can be done by setting image value to APM Server OSS Docker image

An example of APM Server deployment using OSS version can be found in examples/oss.
