Updating provided .yaml deployment Files

To upgrade your deployment with a change in configuration or to upgrade to a new release of Helm chart, take these steps.

  • (Recommended) If using Helm deployment

    When a new version of a chart is released, or when you want to change the configuration of your release, you can use the helm upgrade command. An upgrade takes an existing release and upgrades it according to the information you provide. Because Kubernetes charts can be large and complex, Helm tries to perform the least invasive upgrade. It will only update things that have changed since the last release. For more information, see 'helm upgrade' and 'helm rollback': Upgrading a Release, and Recovering on Failure on the Helm Docs site.


    To upgrade the Z APM Connect DG or modify your configuration, run the helm upgrade command, including the release name and chart path as arguments.

    helm upgrade --namespace <desired project> -f <config yaml> <name> <chart location>

    For example,

    helm upgrade --namespace ibm-zapm -f values.yaml zapm ./zapm-connect-6.1.1-1.tgz
  • If using manual deployment


    1. Upload the new images to your image registry.

    2. Update the yaml files again. For detailed information about updating the yaml files, see Populating deployment files.
