Chapter 11. Red Hat build of Kogito service properties configuration

When a Red Hat build of Kogito microservice is deployed, a configMap resource is created for the application.properties configuration of the Red Hat build of Kogito microservice.

The name of the configMap resource consists of the name of the Red Hat build of Kogito microservice and the suffix -properties, as shown in the following example:

Example configMap resource generated during Red Hat build of Kogito microservice deployment

kind: ConfigMap
apiVersion: v1
metadata:
  name: kogito-travel-agency-properties
data:
  application.properties : |-
    property1=value1
    property2=value2

The application.properties data of the configMap resource is mounted in a volume to the container of the Red Hat build of Kogito microservice. Any runtime properties that you add to the application.properties section override the default application configuration properties of the Red Hat build of Kogito microservice.

When the application.properties data of the configMap is changed, a rolling update modifies the deployment and configuration of the Red Hat build of Kogito microservice.
