Some of the early work on the Google Hire recruiting software happened at Bebop, which Google bought in 2015. Now Hire is going away two years after it was formally announced.

I think it’s smart that they “pumpkin plan” their products, killing off the products that don’t work.

Guys, Its query related to ansible tower, Just thought of posting here to check whether you guys had any knowledge about this issue. I’ve installed Ansible Tower 3. 5 on centos7(Which is EC2 Instance), Whenever I try to lauch a Job thorough template, I get following error : The vault password file /var/lib/awx/.vault_pass was not found

I’ve created .valut_pass.txt in the above directory and try to re-ran the Job it is failed, Then I try to update .vault_pass in home ./~~ directory and re-ran the Job still it is failed. Also I made reference to .valut_pass in bash profile also by reference the path (ANSIBLE_VAULT_PASSWORD_FILE=~~.vault_pass.txt) still it failed when I try to run the job.

Also I tried to remove the reference(Just for testing) from ansible.cfg(User one, which is there in my Ansible Tower Set up) to see whether Job will run, Still it failed,

Hi!!..

How can i override the values.yaml of a helm chart in helmfile….e.g. If i have the helm chart in that say we have a variable set to env=laptop now on runtime i want to override the value to env=single…so how can i do that…

Andrey Nazarov avatar
Andrey Nazarov

Basically, this could be done via values:, depending on what you have in the original values.yaml of your helm chart. I.e.

releases:
  - name: your_name
    namespace: your_namespace
    chart: your_chart
    version: ~0.1.0
    values:
      - env: single

or you could prepare the dedicated file with all the values or go templates and use it instead of the inline form. It’s possible to use set:, but I wouldn’t suggest using it. More on that straight here: https://github.com/roboll/helmfile#configuration.
