Environment-Dependent Property Management Strategies for OpenShift Pipelines

Environment-Dependent Property Management Strategies for OpenShift Pipelines

How an application expects to read its configurations is completely application-dependent. That said, over the course of several projects we have seen some patterns emerge that we have found to be successful. There is no better or worse approach – it is the responsibility of the pipeline designer to choose the best approach for a given context. This blog post focuses on environment-dependent properties, but the same approaches could be potentially used for all properties, whether or not they are environment-dependent.

This situation is common regardless of the container cluster manager and delivery pipeline being used. In this article, I will assume using OpenShift as the container cluster manager and Jenkins as the delivery pipeline tool.
