Learn about application configuration data issues and the concept of configmaps.
- Applications require a way for us to pass data to them…that can be changed at deploy time.…Examples of this might be log levels…or URLs of external systems…that the application might need at start-up time.…Instead of hard-coding these values,…we use configmaps in Kubernetes…to pass these values…as environment variables to the container.…For example, in this scenario, I have a deployment…where I have a container called karthequian reader…and, as an environment variable,…I want to pass log level of error.…So if I run this,…kubectl create -f reader deployment.yaml…I will see the deployment's been created.…
Get pods, I see that the pod…is in a container-creating status,…and we see that the pod is running.…Let's take a look at the logs.…Get the pod name first.…We'll notice that this says…that the log level passed via environment variable…was error as per the application.…What we'd like to do is…we'd like to change this at deployment time.…
For this, we can use something called configmaps.…In order to create a configmap,…
