Status Write Back

This documentation will explain how to achieve status write back by using CUE templates in definition objects.

Health Check#

The spec of health check is spec.status.healthPolicy, they are the same for both Workload Type and Trait.

If not defined, the health result will always be true.

The keyword in CUE is isHealth, the result of CUE expression must be bool type. KubeVela runtime will evaluate the CUE expression periodically until it becomes healthy. Every time the controller will get all the Kubernetes resources and fill them into the context field.

So the context will contain following information:

context:{
name: <component name>
appName: <app name>
output: <K8s workload resource>
outputs: {
<resource1>: <K8s trait resource1>
<resource2>: <K8s trait resource2>
}
}

Trait will not have the context.ouput, other fields are the same.

The example of health check likes below:

apiVersion: core.oam.dev/v1beta1
kind: ComponentDefinition
spec:
status:
healthPolicy: |
isHealth: (context.output.status.readyReplicas > 0) && (context.output.status.readyReplicas == context.output.status.replicas)
...
apiVersion: core.oam.dev/v1beta1
kind: TraitDefinition
spec:
status:
healthPolicy: |
isHealth: len(context.outputs.service.spec.clusterIP) > 0
...

Please refer to this doc for the complete example.

The health check result will be recorded into the Application resource.

apiVersion: core.oam.dev/v1beta1
kind: Application
spec:
components:
- name: myweb
type: worker
properties:
cmd:
- sleep
- "1000"
enemies: alien
image: busybox
lives: "3"
traits:
- type: ingress
properties:
domain: www.example.com
http:
/: 80
status:
...
services:
- healthy: true
message: "type: busybox,\t enemies:alien"
name: myweb
traits:
- healthy: true
message: 'Visiting URL: www.example.com, IP: 47.111.233.220'
type: ingress
status: running

Custom Status#

The spec of custom status is spec.status.customStatus, they are the same for both Workload Type and Trait.

The keyword in CUE is message, the result of CUE expression must be string type.

The custom status has the same mechanism with health check. Application CRD controller will evaluate the CUE expression after the health check succeed.

The context will contain following information:

context:{
name: <component name>
appName: <app name>
output: <K8s workload resource>
outputs: {
<resource1>: <K8s trait resource1>
<resource2>: <K8s trait resource2>
}
}

Trait will not have the context.ouput, other fields are the same.

Please refer to this doc for the complete example.

apiVersion: core.oam.dev/v1beta1
kind: ComponentDefinition
spec:
status:
customStatus: |-
message: "type: " + context.output.spec.template.spec.containers[0].image + ",\t enemies:" + context.outputs.gameconfig.data.enemies
...
apiVersion: core.oam.dev/v1beta1
kind: TraitDefinition
spec:
status:
customStatus: |-
message: "type: "+ context.outputs.service.spec.type +",\t clusterIP:"+ context.outputs.service.spec.clusterIP+",\t ports:"+ "\(context.outputs.service.spec.ports[0].port)"+",\t domain"+context.outputs.ingress.spec.rules[0].host
...
