Configuring the Upgrade Pipeline

Warning: VMware Tanzu Kubernetes Grid Integrated Edition (TKGI) v1.8 is no longer supported because it has reached the End of General Support (EOGS) phase as defined by the Support Lifecycle Policy. To stay up to date with the latest software and security updates, upgrade to a supported version.

Note: As of v1.8, Enterprise PKS has been renamed to VMware Tanzu Kubernetes Grid Integrated Edition. Some screenshots in this documentation do not yet reflect the change.

This topic describes how to set up a Concourse pipeline to perform automatic upgrades of a VMware Tanzu Kubernetes Grid Integrated Edition installation.

When you configure the upgrade pipeline, the pipeline upgrades your installation when a new Tanzu Kubernetes Grid Integrated Edition release becomes available on VMware Tanzu Network.

By default, the pipeline upgrades when a new major patch version is available.

For more information about configuring and using Concourse for continuous integration (CI), see the Concourse documentation.

Download the Upgrade Pipeline

Perform the following steps:

  1. From a browser, log in to VMware Tanzu Network.

  2. Navigate to the Platform Automation Tools product page to download the upgrade-tile pipeline.

  3. (Optional) Edit params.yml to configure the pipeline.

    • For example, edit the product_version_regex value to follow minor version updates.
  4. Set the pipeline using the fly CLI for Concourse. See the upgrade-tile pipeline documentation for more information.
