Setting Up Deployment Environment

A deployment environment is where you could configure the workspace, email for contact and domain for your applications globally. A typical set of deployment environment is test, staging, prod, etc.

Create environment#

$ vela env init demo --email my@email.com
environment demo created, Namespace: default, Email: my@email.com

Check the deployment environment metadata#

$ vela env ls
NAME CURRENT NAMESPACE EMAIL DOMAIN
default default
demo * default my@email.com

By default, the environment will use default namespace in K8s.

Configure changes#

You could change the config by executing the environment again.

$ vela env init demo --namespace demo
environment demo created, Namespace: demo, Email: my@email.com
$ vela env ls
NAME CURRENT NAMESPACE EMAIL DOMAIN
default default
demo * demo my@email.com

Note that the created apps won't be affected, only newly created apps will use the updated info.

[Optional] Configure Domain if you have public IP#

If your K8s cluster is provisioned by cloud provider and has public IP for ingress. You could configure your domain in the environment, then you'll be able to visit your app by this domain with an mTLS supported automatically.

For example, you could get the public IP from ingress service.

$ kubectl get svc -A | grep LoadBalancer
NAME TYPE CLUSTER-IP EXTERNAL-IP PORT(S) AGE
nginx-ingress-lb LoadBalancer 172.21.2.174 123.57.10.233 80:32740/TCP,443:32086/TCP 41d

The fourth column is public IP. Configure 'A' record for your custom domain.

*.your.domain => 123.57.10.233

You could also use 123.57.10.233.xip.io as your domain, if you don't have a custom one. xip.io will automatically route to the prefix IP 123.57.10.233.

$ vela env init demo --domain 123.57.10.233.xip.io
environment demo updated, Namespace: demo, Email: my@email.com

Using domain in Appfile#

Since you now have domain configured globally in deployment environment, you don't need to specify the domain in route configuration anymore.

# in demo environment
servcies:
express-server:
...
route:
rules:
- path: /testapp
rewriteTarget: /
$ curl http://123.57.10.233.xip.io/testapp
