The HelmDeploy step deploys a Docker image to a Kubernetes cluster using a Helm chart.

The Helm chart used to deploy the image through this native step can be either:

  • A HelmChart resource that identifies a Helm chart stored in an Artifactory repository by HelmPublish.

  • A Helm chart in a source code repository identified by a GitRepo resource.

When properly configured, the HelmDeploy step also performs a replace_envs operation on all files specified under the valueFilePaths tag to replace all environment variables in those files with their values. This enables the step to derive information from a resource, such as the image name and tag from an Image, and use it to perform the deployment.

The HelmDeploy step uses the helm upgrade command to perform the deployment.
