Use Pipeline Templates

KubeSphere offers a graphical editing panel where the stages and steps of a Jenkins pipeline can be defined through interactive operations. In KubeSphere v3.1, two built-in pipeline templates are provided as frameworks of continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD).

When you have a pipeline created in your DevOps project on KubeSphere, you can click the pipeline to go to its detail page, and then click Edit Pipeline to select a pipeline template based on your needs. This document illustrates the concept of these two pipeline templates.

CI Pipeline Template

ci-stages

The CI pipeline template contains two stages. The clone code stage checks out code and the build & push stage builds an image and pushes it to Docker Hub. You need to create the credentials for your code repository and your Docker Hub registry in advance, and then set the URL of your repository and these credentials in corresponding steps. After you finish editing, the pipeline is ready to run.

CI & CD Pipeline Template

The CI & CD pipeline template contains six stages. For more information about each stage, refer to Create a Pipeline Using a Jenkinsfile where you can find similar stages and the descriptions. You need to create credentials for your code repository, your Docker Hub registry, and the kubeconfig of your cluster in advance, and then set the URL of your repository and these credentials in corresponding steps. After you finish editing, the pipeline is ready to run.

Info

You can also customize the stages and steps in the pipeline templates based on your needs. For more information about how to use the graphical editing panel, refer to Create a Pipeline Using Graphical Editing Panels.
