Snipeit-IT is free open source IT asset/license management system

Generate config.snipeit.key

In order for Snipe-IT to work correctly you need to set the yaml-key config.snipeit.key in the values.yaml. This must be a Base64 Encoded key, which you have to set before deploying this Chart.

$ docker run -i -t snipe/snipe-it php artisan key:generate --show

Then set the generated key from the output with –set config.snipeit.key when you’re deploying.


$ helm repo add t3n https://storage.googleapis.com/t3n-helm-charts
$ helm install t3n/snipeit --set config.snipeit.key="base64:....."


This chart bootstraps a Snipe-IT deployment on a Kubernetes cluster using the Helm package manager.

Installing the Chart

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

$ helm install --name my-release t3n/snipeit --set config.snipeit.key="base64:....."

The command deploys Snipe-IT on the Kubernetes cluster in the default configuration. The configuration section lists the parameters that can be configured during installation.

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 Snipe-IT chart and their default values.

config.mysql.externalDatabase.user Username of external MySQL Database User snipeit
config.mysql.externalDatabase.pass Password of external MySQL Database User ""

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

$ helm install --name my-release \
  --set service.type=LoadBalancer \

The above command sets the service type LoadBalancer.

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

$ helm install --name my-release -f values.yaml t3n/snipeit

Tip: You can use the default values.yaml


The Snipe-IT image stores persistence under /var/lib/snipeit path of the container. A dynamically managed Persistent Volume Claim is used to keep the data across deployments, by default. This is known to work in GCE, AWS, and minikube. Alternatively, a previously configured Persistent Volume Claim can be used.

Existing PersistentVolumeClaim

  1. Create the PersistentVolume
  2. Create the PersistentVolumeClaim
  3. Install the chart
$ helm install --name my-release \
    --set persistence.existingClaim=PVC_NAME \

Custom Environment Values

Snipe-IT uses .env file to store configuration variables. This includes Email configuration, advanced configurations like proxy, login throttling etc. To override the default values for these variables, use the config.snipeit.envConfig.
