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 of their build configurations, cluster 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 not set in the build configurations or builds themselves, but rather are only used during the build process. This allows administrators to change the global configuration at any time, and any builds that are re-run from existing build configurations or builds will get 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. It currently supports overriding the forcePull flag on a build strategy to enforce always refreshing the local image during a build by pulling the image from the registry. This ensures that a user can only build with an image that they are allowed to pull.

Setting Global Build Defaults

You can set global build defaults two ways:

Configuring Global Build Defaults with Ansible

During advanced 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.
openshift_builddefaults_http_proxy=http://USER:PASSWORD@HOST:PORT
openshift_builddefaults_https_proxy=https://USER:PASSWORD@HOST:PORT
openshift_builddefaults_no_proxy=mycorp.com
openshift_builddefaults_git_http_proxy=http://USER:PASSWORD@HOST:PORT
openshift_builddefaults_git_https_proxy=https://USER:PASSWORD@HOST:PORT
openshift_builddefaults_git_no_proxy=mycorp.com
openshift_builddefaults_image_labels=[{'name':'imagelabelname1','value':'imagelabelvalue1'}]
openshift_builddefaults_nodeselectors={'nodelabel1':'nodelabelvalue1'}
openshift_builddefaults_annotations={'annotationkey1':'annotationvalue1'}
openshift_builddefaults_resources_requests_cpu=100m
openshift_builddefaults_resources_requests_memory=256m
openshift_builddefaults_resources_limits_cpu=1000m
openshift_builddefaults_resources_limits_memory=512m

# 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:

    kubernetesMasterConfig:
      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: CUSTOM_VAR (6)
                value: custom_value
              imageLabels:
              - name: url (7)
                value: https://containers.example.org
              - name: vendor
                value: ExampleCorp Ltd.
              nodeSelector: (8)
                key1: value1
                key2: value2
              annotations: (9)
                key1: value1
                key2: value2
              resources: (10)
                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 service for the changes to take effect:

    # systemctl restart atomic-openshift-master

Setting Global Build Overrides

You can set global build overrides two ways:

Configuring Global Build Overrides with Ansible

During advanced 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

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'}

# Or you may optionally define your own build overrides configuration serialized as json
#openshift_buildoverrides_json='{"BuildOverrides":{"configuration":{"apiVersion":"v1","kind":"BuildDefaultsConfig","forcePull":"true"}}}'

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:

    kubernetesMasterConfig:
      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
    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.
  2. Restart the master service for the changes to take effect:

    # systemctl restart atomic-openshift-master
