Prisma Helm Chart

Prisma is a performant open-source GraphQL ORM-like layer doing the heavy lifting in your GraphQL server.


$ helm install stable/prisma


This chart bootstraps a Prisma deployment on a Kubernetes cluster using the Helm package manager.

Note: This chart doesn’t support horizontal scaling for Prisma yet.

Installing the Chart

To install the chart with the release name my-release:

$ helm install --name my-release stable/prisma

Note: Prisma requires a properly configured database in order to initialize. See the values.yaml file for the configuration values that need to be set. Also, if preferred you can set postgresql.enabled to true and Helm will deploy the PostgreSQL chart listed in the requirements.yaml file, and Prisma will be able to initialize properly using the default values.

Tip: List all releases using helm list

Uninstalling the Chart

To uninstall/delete the my-release deployment:

$ helm delete my-release

The command removes all the Kubernetes components associated with the chart and deletes the release.


The following table lists the configurable parameters of the Prisma chart and their default values.
