Configuring the Upgrade Pipeline

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.

Page last updated:

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.

    Note: If you cannot access Platform Automation Tools on VMware Tanzu Network, contact Support.

  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.
