We’d like to get feedback from Kubernetes users interested in using Spinnaker in more sophisticated ways. Here’s a quick video outlining a problem we’re hearing from Kubernetes users, and proposed solution below:
The problem: Today, you can use Spinnaker to deploy images. However, other resource types (secrets, config maps, persistent volumes, etc.) are not natively supported within Spinnaker. This means that Kubernetes users accustomed to using kubectl find Spinnaker pipelines limiting because other resources have to be provisioned outside of Spinnaker.
Kuberentes has manifest files (which usually live in source control). How can Spinnaker use pipeline orchestration to deploy Kubernetes entities from Spinnaker pipelines?
Our Proposed Solution: We’ve mocked up a new “Deploy Kubernetes Resource” stage within Spinnaker to create a generic way to deploy more Kubernetes entities, which we show in the video above. Specifically:
Before we actually create this stage, we’d like to find a few customers that want to test it. Please contact us below or email [email protected] if you’re interested.
Here are a few screenshots of Andrew’s “Deploy Kubernetes Resource” Stage mockup from the video:

Call me Pollyanna, but what a great time to be a Platform or DevOps engineer. If you’re working in a public company, the S&P is off ~20% year over year, so the value of your RSUs has wilted. If you’re working in a private company, venture funding and M&A velocity are anemic, making expansion capital […]
