So I am in the situation where I have an OpenShift Template with a lot of parameters. Depending on the situation and environment I am working with, I would like to set these to different values. Currently I am doing this is by just overwriting them with the "-p" flag when processing the template with the oc command. So for example I would do something like this
oc process -f template-location.yaml -p PARAMETER1=environment1value -p PARAMETER2=environment1value ... | oc create -f -
oc process -f template-location.yaml -p PARAMETER1=environment2value -p PARAMETER2=environment2value ... | oc create -f -
...and so forth for every other environment.
What I would like to know was, whether it is possible to offload the value of these parameters in to a separate file (maybe yaml or json aswell) and read them in from there. So that for example something similar to this is possible (Note: the "-p" switch there is just meant as a stand in):
oc process -f template-location.yaml -p environment1-values.yaml | oc create -f -
oc process -f template-location.yaml -p environment2-values.yaml | oc create -f -
Especially from a DevOps perspective this would be really nice, as you could just check-in the value files into VCS as well.
Is there a functionality like this? Or do you guys maybe have an even better idea? Unfortunately I could not find anything in the documentation.
