I would like to make a custom step template out of the “Upgrade Helm Chart” step. (Pre-setting many of the values that my company will use.)
So far it seems to go well except that when I actually use the final Custom Step Template, most of the fields are hidden. (My guess is that this is happening because the Octopus expects me to expose parameters for anything that I want customizable in the final template.)
This works ok for many of the types of inputs. But the “Upgrade Helm Chart” step has a control to add values to the
values.yaml file called
Explicit Key Values:
This control is a repeating control. When I use it in a project, I can keep adding as many values as I need. However it is not possible for me to anticipate all the values the users of the control would need in my Custom Step Template.
I could add a bunch of parameters like Key1, Value1, Key2, Value2, Key3, Value3 etc. But that is ugly and ultimately may not be enough.
I could also force them to enter an entire
values.yaml file, but that requires that they override the entire file included in the chart. Also not ideal.
Is there a way to say to the step template, go ahead and let the final user of the Custom Step Template set the
Explicit Key Values section?
