Overview

Developers can define settings in specific build configurations within their projects, such as configuring a proxy for Git cloning. Rather than requiring developers to define certain settings in each build configuration, administrators can use admission control plug-ins to configure global build defaults and overrides that automatically use these settings in any build.

The settings from these plug-ins are used only during the build process but are not set in the build configurations or builds themselves. Configuring the settings through the plug-ins allows administrators to change the global configuration at any time, and any builds that are re-run from existing build configurations or builds are assigned the new settings.

  • The BuildDefaults admission control plug-in allows administrators to set global defaults for settings such as the Git HTTP and HTTPS proxy, as well as default environment variables. These defaults do not overwrite values that have been configured for a specific build. However, if those values are not present on the build definition, they are set to the default value.

  • The BuildOverrides admission control plug-in allows administrators to override a setting in a build, regardless of the value stored in the build. The plug-in currently supports overriding the forcePull flag on a build strategy to force refreshing the local image from the registry during a build. Refreshing ensures that users can build only with images that they are allowed to pull. The plug-in can also be configured to apply a set of image labels to every built image.

    For information on configuring the BuildOverrides admission control plug-in and the values you can override, see Manually Setting Global Build Overrides.

The default node selectors and the BuildDefaults or BuildOverride admission plug-ins work together as follows:

  • The default project node selector, defined in the projectConfig.defaultNodeSelector field in the master configuration file, is applied to the pods created in all projects without a specified nodeSelector value. These settings are applied to builds with nodeSelector="null" on clusters where the BuildDefaults or BuildOverride nodeselector is not set.

  • The cluster-wide default build node selector, admissionConfig.pluginConfig.BuildDefaults.configuration.nodeSelector, is applied only if the nodeSelector="null" parameter is set in the build configuration. nodeSelector=null is the default setting.

  • With a default project or cluster-wide node selector, the default setting is added as an AND to the build node selector, which is set by the BuildDefaults or BuildOverride admission plug-ins. These settings mean that the build will be scheduled only to nodes that satisfy the BuildOverrides node selector AND the project default node selector.

    You can define a hard limit on how long build pods can run by using the RunOnceDuration plugin.

Setting Global Build Defaults

You can set global build defaults two ways:

Configuring Global Build Defaults with Ansible

During cluster installations, the BuildDefaults plug-in can be configured using the following parameters, which are configurable in the inventory file:

  • openshift_builddefaults_http_proxy

  • openshift_builddefaults_https_proxy

  • openshift_builddefaults_no_proxy

  • openshift_builddefaults_git_http_proxy

  • openshift_builddefaults_git_https_proxy

  • openshift_builddefaults_git_no_proxy

  • openshift_builddefaults_image_labels

  • openshift_builddefaults_nodeselectors

  • openshift_builddefaults_annotations

  • openshift_builddefaults_resources_requests_cpu

  • openshift_builddefaults_resources_requests_memory

  • openshift_builddefaults_resources_limits_cpu

  • openshift_builddefaults_resources_limits_memory

Example 1. Example Build Defaults Configuration with Ansible
# These options configure the BuildDefaults admission controller which injects
# configuration into Builds. Proxy related values will default to the global proxy
# config values. You only need to set these if they differ from the global proxy settings.

# Or you may optionally define your own build defaults configuration serialized as json
#openshift_builddefaults_json='{"BuildDefaults":{"configuration":{"apiVersion":"v1","env":[{"name":"HTTP_PROXY","value":"http://proxy.example.com.redhat.com:3128"},{"name":"NO_PROXY","value":"ose3-master.example.com"}],"gitHTTPProxy":"http://proxy.example.com:3128","gitNoProxy":"ose3-master.example.com","kind":"BuildDefaultsConfig"}}}'

Manually Setting Global Build Defaults

To configure the BuildDefaults plug-in:

  1. Add a configuration for it in the /etc/origin/master/master-config.yaml file on the master nodes:

    admissionConfig:
      pluginConfig:
        BuildDefaults:
          configuration:
            apiVersion: v1
            kind: BuildDefaultsConfig
            gitHTTPProxy: http://my.proxy:8080 (1)
            gitHTTPSProxy: https://my.proxy:8443 (2)
            gitNoProxy: somedomain.com, otherdomain.com (3)
            env:
            - name: HTTP_PROXY (4)
              value: http://my.proxy:8080
            - name: HTTPS_PROXY (5)
              value: https://my.proxy:8443
            - name: BUILD_LOGLEVEL (6)
              value: 4
            - name: CUSTOM_VAR (7)
              value: custom_value
            imageLabels:
            - name: url (8)
              value: https://containers.example.org
            - name: vendor
              value: ExampleCorp Ltd.
            nodeSelector: (9)
              key1: value1
              key2: value2
            annotations: (10)
              key1: value1
              key2: value2
            resources: (11)
              requests:
                cpu: "100m"
                memory: "256Mi"
              limits:
                cpu: "100m"
                memory: "256Mi"
    1 Sets the HTTP proxy to use when cloning source code from a Git repository.
    2 Sets the HTTPS proxy to use when cloning source code from a Git repository.
    3 Sets the list of domains for which proxying should not be performed.
    4 Default environment variable that sets the HTTP proxy to use during the build. This can be used for downloading dependencies during the assemble and build phases.
    5 Default environment variable that sets the HTTPS proxy to use during the build. This can be used for downloading dependencies during the assemble and build phases.
    6 Default environment variable that sets the build log level during the build.
    7 Additional default environment variable that will be added to every build.
    8 Labels to be applied to every image built. Users can override these in their BuildConfig.
    9 Build pods will only run on nodes with the key1=value2 and key2=value2 labels. Users can define a different set of nodeSelectors for their builds in which case these values will be ignored.
    10 Build pods will have these annotations added to them.
    11 Sets the default resources to the build pod if the BuildConfig does not have related resource defined.
  2. Restart the master services for the changes to take effect:

    # master-restart api
    # master-restart controllers

Setting Global Build Overrides

You can set global build overrides two ways:

Configuring Global Build Overrides with Ansible

During cluster installations, the BuildOverrides plug-in can be configured using the following parameters, which are configurable in the inventory file:

  • openshift_buildoverrides_force_pull

  • openshift_buildoverrides_image_labels

  • openshift_buildoverrides_nodeselectors

  • openshift_buildoverrides_annotations

  • openshift_buildoverrides_tolerations

Example 2. Example Build Overrides Configuration with Ansible
# These options configure the BuildOverrides admission controller which injects
# configuration into Builds.
openshift_buildoverrides_force_pull=true
openshift_buildoverrides_image_labels=[{'name':'imagelabelname1','value':'imagelabelvalue1'}]
openshift_buildoverrides_nodeselectors={'nodelabel1':'nodelabelvalue1'}
openshift_buildoverrides_annotations={'annotationkey1':'annotationvalue1'}
openshift_buildoverrides_tolerations=[{'key':'mykey1','value':'myvalue1','effect':'NoSchedule','operator':'Equal'}]

# Or you may optionally define your own build overrides configuration serialized as json
#openshift_buildoverrides_json='{"BuildOverrides":{"configuration":{"apiVersion":"v1","kind":"BuildOverridesConfig","forcePull":"true","tolerations":[{'key':'mykey1','value':'myvalue1','effect':'NoSchedule','operator':'Equal'}]}}}'

Manually Setting Global Build Overrides

To configure the BuildOverrides plug-in:

  1. Add a configuration for it in the /etc/origin/master/master-config.yaml file on masters:

    admissionConfig:
      pluginConfig:
        BuildOverrides:
          configuration:
            apiVersion: v1
            kind: BuildOverridesConfig
            forcePull: true (1)
            imageLabels:
            - name: distribution-scope (2)
              value: private
            nodeSelector: (3)
              key1: value1
              key2: value2
            annotations: (4)
              key1: value1
              key2: value2
            tolerations: (5)
            - key: mykey1
              value: myvalue1
              effect: NoSchedule
              operator: Equal
            - key: mykey2
              value: myvalue2
              effect: NoExecute
              operator: Equal
    1 Force all builds to pull their builder image and any source images before starting the build.
    2 Additional labels to be applied to every image built. Labels defined here take precedence over labels defined in BuildConfig.
    3 Build pods will only run on nodes with the key1=value2 and key2=value2 labels. Users can define additional key/value labels to further constrain the set of nodes a build runs on, but the node must have at least these labels.
    4 Build pods will have these annotations added to them.
    5 Build pods will have any existing tolerations overridden by those listed here.
  2. Restart the master services for the changes to take effect:

    # master-restart api
    # master-restart controllers
