Honeydipper is basically, your swiss army knife for systems engineering and operations. An event-driven, policy-based orchestration system, with a pluggable open architecture.


This chart creates a deployment to run the Honeydipper daemon, and exposes a service pointing to the webhook listener.


  • Kubernetes 1.10+

Required Configuration

Honeydipper daemon loads most of the configurations from git repos. To start, a few environment variables are required to bootstrap repo. Below are the settings required.

  • daemon.env.REPO, defaults to

Please refer to values.yaml for detailed example.


The following options are supported . See values.yaml for more detailed explanation and examples:

Parameter Description Default
daemon.dnsConfig dnsConfig specifies the DNS parameters of the pod. Parameters specified here will be merged to the generated DNS configuration based on DNSPolicy
daemon.serviceAccountName name of the ServiceAccount to use to run this pod, More info:
daemon.replicaCount The number of replicas of daemons to start 1
daemon.image.repository The docker image for Honeydipper daemon honeydipper/honeydipper
daemon.image.tag The version tag of the docker image to use latest
daemon.image.pullPolicy Pull policy for the docker image Always
daemon.args Honeydipper daemon args, should be a list of Honeydipper daemon services, empty means all
daemon.resources The pod resource spec, cpu limit, memory limit, etc., as defined in a pod spec
daemon.nodeSelector A map of node selectors for the pod, as defined in a pod spec
daemon.affinity A map of affinity settings for the pod, as defined in a pod spec
daemon.annotations A map of annotations as defined in a deployment metadata
daemon.tolerations A list of toleration settings for the pod, as defined in a pod spec
daemon.extraVolumes A list of volumns to be added to the pod
daemon.extraVolumeMounts A list of volumns to be mounted to main daemon container
daemon.env A list of environment variables to be added to the main daemon container
drivers.webhook.service.type The exposed service type for the webhook LoadBalancer
drivers.webhook.service.port The exposed service port for the webhook, needs to match the driver configurations set in the configuration repo 8080
drivers.webhook.service.nodePort The exposed service node port for the webhook. If set to 0, Kubernetes will assign a random port. 0
drivers.webhook.ingress.enabled Use ingress controller for the webhook service false
drivers.webhook.ingress.annotations If using ingress controllers, specify a map of anotations
drivers.webhook.ingress.path If using ingress controllers, specify the path mapped to webhook
drivers.webhook.ingress.hosts If using ingress controllers, specify a list of host names for the webhook
drivers.webhook.ingress.tls If using ingress controllers, specify the secret that defines the key and certs
drivers.redis.local Use redis sidecar container for eventbus, this is only useful for testing. In production, multiple replicas of daemon should share the redis server true
drivers.redis.image.repository When using redis sidecar container for eventbus, this is used to specify the image repository redis
drivers.redis.image.tag When using redis sidecar container for eventbus, this is used to specify the image tag 5

Specifying environment

Using command line:

helm -f values.yaml install --name test incubator/honeydipper

In values file

    - name: REPO
    - name: BOOTSTRAP_PATH
      value: /submodule
    - name: BRANCH
      value: test_branch
          name: my-secret
          key: my-key

Mounting volumes

Using values file

    - name: my-config
      mountPath: /etc/myconfig/file
      subPath: file
    - name: my-config
        name: my-config

Testing the Deployment

To perform a sanity test (i.e. ensure Honeydipper daemon is running, and when you curl the webhook url http(s)://your-service-url/health, you should get a 200 response code.)

  1. Install the chart
helm install -f test-values.yaml --name trial incubator/honeydipper --debug
  1. Run the tests
helm test trial
