OpenShift Deployment

This page documents deployments using the next major version dpl v2 which currently is in a beta release phase. Please see our blog post for details. The current default version is dpl v1. Check dpl v1 documentation here.

Travis CI can automatically deploy to OpenShift after a successful build.

For a minimal configuration, add the following to your .travis.yml:

deploy:
  provider: openshift
  server: <server>
  token: <encrypted token>
  project: <project>
  edge: true # opt in to dpl v2

Status #

Support for deployments to OpenShift is *stable**.

Known options #

Use the following options to further configure the deployment.

server OpenShift server — required, type: string
token OpenShift token — required, secret, type: string
project OpenShift project — required, type: string
app OpenShift application — type: string, default: repo name

Shared options #

cleanup Clean up build artifacts from the Git working directory before the deployment — type: boolean
run Commands to execute after the deployment finished successfully — type: string or array of strings

Environment variables #

All options can be given as environment variables if prefixed with OPENSHIFT_.

For example, token can be given as OPENSHIFT_TOKEN=<token>.

Securing secrets #

Secret option values should be given as either encrypted strings in your build configuration (.travis.yml file) or environment variables in your repository settings.

Environment variables can be set on the settings page of your repository, or using travis env set:

travis env set OPENSHIFT_TOKEN <token>

In order to encrypt option values when adding them to your .travis.yml file use travis encrypt:

travis encrypt <token>

Or use --add to directly add it to your .travis.yml file. Note that this command has to be run in your repository’s root directory:

travis encrypt --add deploy.token <token>

Specifying the application name #

By default, your repository name will be used as the application name.

You can set a different application name using the app option:

deploy:
  provider: openshift
  # ⋮
  app: <app_name>

Deploying branches to different projects #

In order to choose projects based on the current branch use separate deploy configurations:

deploy:
  - provider: openshift
    # ⋮
    project: <project-1>
    on:
      branch: master
  - provider: openshift
    # ⋮
    project: <project-2>
    on:
      branch: staging

Or using YAML references:

deploy:
  - &deploy
    provider: openshift
    # ⋮
    project: <project-1>
    on:
      branch: master
  - <<: *deploy
    project: <project-2>
    on:
      branch: staging

Pull Requests #

Note that pull request builds skip the deployment step altogether.
