Assuming the setup steps are completed, you need to now configure the Otomi values repository. This repo is the source configuration for Otomi Container Platform. It contains drone pipeline configurations for each cluster, and each running drone will listen to updates of these values targeting the cluster it is running on. Any updated values might result in different cluster state resources, which will be applied by the Otomi image.

1. Configuration#

Configuration can be done most easily through the Otomi Console. So if you have a license please refer to the Otomi Console documentation.

Not all configuration is (yet) exposed through the console however, so please look at the values repo's env/* files to edit the configuration files.

Important things to note:

  • Every configuration file can have a secrets.*.yaml counterpart, but these are optional.
  • A json schema and vscode settings are imported by the bootrap (in .vscode/*), so you will have automatic linting and hinting for the configuration when vscode is used.
  • If .sops.yaml is correctly configured then automatic de-/en-cryption will also be performed when in vscode and editing a secrets.*.yaml file.

Configuration that is currently managed by the console:

  1. Team settings: env/teams.yaml
  2. Team secrets: env/teams/secrets.$TEAM.yaml
  3. Team services: env/$CLOUD/$CLUSTER/services.$TEAM.yaml

Configuration not (yet) managed by the console:

  1. Cluster config: env/clusters.yaml and env/$CLOUD/$CLUSTER/.env
  2. Otomi settings: env/settings.yaml and env/secrets.settings.yaml
  3. Charts config: env/charts/$CHART.yaml and env/charts/secrets.$CHART.yaml
  4. Cloud overrides: env/$CLOUD/overrides.$CLOUD.yaml and env/secrets.overrides.$CLOUD.yaml
  5. Cluster overrides: env/$CLOUD/$CLUSTER/overrides.$CLOUD-$CLUSTER.yaml and env/$CLOUD/$CLUSTER/secrets.overrides.$CLOUD-$CLUSTER.yaml

Please follow the guidance of the yaml hinting, as it has all the descriptions and example values you need to operate on these files.

Otomi YAML hinting only works in vscode

VSCode automatically loads the '.vscode/values-schema.yaml' schema provided. Please inspect it or wire it up manually when using another editor.

Make sure to have working dns management credentials

The most important part to get the platform deployed is having correctly set credentials for dns management. Without it no domains nor ip addresses can be registered, and certificate validation will fail.

If you wish to be sure of your changes, you can always do a git diff. When you chose to use encryption and have correctly followed the corresponding instructions, then you should see a diff with the unencrypted values. That is, if you modified any ;)

2. Validation#

When you are done with the configuration you can validate the results:

otomi validate-values

If you have made an error in the format of the values this will be reported.

To check if all the output manifests are valid for the target cluster's k8s version, and following best practices you can run another variation:

otomi validate-templates

3. Configure Dependencies#


In our demo files we target CLOUD=google CLUSTER=demo and we refer to Azure AD as IDP for Keycloak, which is a common use case. It needs to know the valid callbacks to return control to Otomi's oauth endpoints. The following callbacks needed to be in place:

This will be the same for any IDP.
