She Promoted her Helm Chart... You Won't Believe What Happened Next!

At Anaplan we have employed Artifactory to great effect to support our brand new CICD pipeline. The pipeline allows Helm-based microservices to be promoted through a series of 'levels of trust' until they are deemed production ready. Integral to this pipeline was the internal development of an Artifactory promotion plugin that allows us to atomically promote all Docker images associated with a Helm chart when promoting just the chart, as well as providing us with vital gating to prevent unsuitable commits from being promoted.

In this talk I will present an overview of our CICD pipeline, including the motivations for the development of the Artifactory plugin that supports it. I will also dive into the complex integration test suite that gives us confidence in the correctness of the promotion mechanisms, and provide observations and guidance on best practices based on our experiences of Artifactory plugin development within our team.

Believe it or not, Artifactory plugin development can be quite fun!
