hrval-action

This project is no longer maintained, helm-operator users should migrate to Flux v2 and helm-controller.

This GitHub action validates a Flux Helm Release Kubernetes custom resources with kubeval.

Steps:

  • installs kubectl, yq, kubeval, helm v2 and v3
  • extracts the chart source with yq
  • downloads the chart from the Helm or Git repository
  • extracts the Helm Release values with yq
  • runs helm template for the extracted values
  • validates the YAMLs using kubeval strict mode

Usage

Validate Helm release custom resources:

name: CI

on: [push, pull_request]

jobs:
  hrval:
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
    steps:
      - uses: actions/checkout@v1
      - name: Validate Helm Releases in test dir
        uses: stefanprodan/hrval-action@master
        with:
          helmRelease: test/
      - name: Validate Helm Release from Helm Repo
        uses: stefanprodan/hrval-action@master
        with:
          helmRelease: test/flagger.yaml
          helmVersion: v2
          kubernetesVersion: 1.17.0
      - name: Validate Helm Release from Git Repo
        uses: stefanprodan/hrval-action@master
        with:
          helmRelease: test/podinfo.yaml
          helmVersion: v3
          kubernetesVersion: master
          ignoreValues: true

Usage with private charts repositories

Private GitHub/GitLab repository

To allow the action to be able to clone charts from private GitHub repositories, you must create a GitHub private access token and add it as a secret to the target repository. NOTE: secret names cannot start with GITHUB_ as these are reserved.

You can then pass the secret (in this case, GH_TOKEN) into the action like so:

name: CI

on: [push, pull_request]

jobs:
  hrval:
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
    steps:
      - uses: actions/checkout@v1
      - name: Validate Helm Releases in test dir
        uses: stefanprodan/hrval-action@master
        with:
          helmRelease: test/
        env:
          GITHUB_TOKEN: ${{ secrets.GH_TOKEN }}

Gitlab CI Token is also possible using GITLAB_CI_TOKEN.

AWS S3

If you set awsS3Repo: true, make sure you set the appropriate environment variables for helm s3 plugin to work. Example:

name: CI

on: [push, pull_request]

jobs:
  hrval:
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
    steps:
      - uses: actions/checkout@v1
      - name: Validate Helm Releases in test dir
        uses: stefanprodan/hrval-action@master
        with:
          helmRelease: test/
          awsS3Repo: true
          awsS3RepoName: example-s3-helm-repo
          awsS3Plugin: https://github.com/hypnoglow/helm-s3.git
        env:
          GITHUB_TOKEN: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}
          AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID: ${{ secrets.AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID }}
          AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY: ${{ secrets.AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY }}
          AWS_DEFAULT_REGION: "us-east-1"

HTTP(S) Helm chart repository

To allow fetching Helm charts from private Helm chart repositories you need to pass a list of Helm repositories in HTTP_PRIVATE_CHART_REPOS environment variable as JSON.

{
  "repositories": [
    {
      "url": "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/username/helm-chart-repository/master/",
      "username": "YOUR_USERNAME",
      "password": "YOUR_PASSWORD"
    },
    {
      "url": "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/username/another-helm-chart-repository/master/",
      "username": "YOUR_USERNAME",
      "password": "YOUR_PASSWORD"
    }
  ]
}

It should be passed as a secret to keep credentials secure.

name: CI

on: [push, pull_request]

jobs:
  hrval:
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
    steps:
      - uses: actions/checkout@v1
      - name: Validate Helm Releases in test dir
        uses: stefanprodan/hrval-action@master
        with:
          helmRelease: test/
        env:
          HTTP_PRIVATE_CHART_REPOS: ${{ secrets.HTTP_PRIVATE_CHART_REPOS }}

Usage with pull requests containing changes of Helm chart source located in base repository branch

If a base repository branch of pull request is referenced in helm release, you need to pass HRVAL_BASE_BRANCH and HRVAL_HEAD_BRANCH environment variables to an action to make sure it will check out amended version of the chart from a head repository branch.

name: CI

on: [pull_request]

jobs:
  hrval:
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
    steps:
      - uses: actions/checkout@v1
      - name: Validate Helm Releases in test dir
        uses: stefanprodan/hrval-action@master
        with:
          helmRelease: test/
        env:
          HRVAL_BASE_BRANCH: ${{ github.base_ref }}
          HRVAL_HEAD_BRANCH: ${{ github.head_ref }}

Usage with Helm source caching enabled

Sometimes single Helm release might be referenced multiple times in a single Flux repository, for example if staging branch of Helm chart repository is used as a release ref across all staging releases. A property named helmSourcesCacheEnabled enables caching for such releases, so a single Helm repository chart version or Git repository ref will be retrieved only once, and cached version will be used for validation of another releases which reuse same sources.

name: CI

on: [pull_request]

jobs:
  hrval:
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
    steps:
      - uses: actions/checkout@v1
      - name: Validate Helm Releases in test dir
        uses: stefanprodan/hrval-action@master
        with:
          helmRelease: test/
          helmSourcesCacheEnabled: true

CI alternatives

The validation scripts can be used in any CI system.

CircleCI example:

version: 2.1
jobs:
  hrval:
    docker:
      - image: stefanprodan/hrval:latest
    steps:
      - checkout
      - run:
          name: Validate Helm Releases in test dir
          command: |
            IGNORE_VALUES=false
            KUBE_VER=master
            HELM_VER=v2

            hrval test/ $IGNORE_VALUES $KUBE_VER $HELM_VER
