New action: Helm

Thanks to Buddy and our dedicated integrations, Kubernetes deployments are more accessible than ever. Now we are adding another piece to the puzzle - Run Helm CMDs action.

This action will allow you to build your Helm chart. Push it to your repository (which is effortless due to our dedicated S3 and GCS support) and set it up in your K8s cluster. You can find in the Kubernetes section of our action roster

  • Preinstalled kubectl in the version of your choice
  • Preinstalled Helm in the version of your choice
  • Preinstalled selected Helm plugins
  • Preconfigured access to your K8s cluster with dedicated support for GKE, Amazon AKS and Azure AKS
  • Preconfigured access to your Helm chart repository with dedicated support for Amazon S3 and Google Cloud Storage
