Akuity January 2023 Update

Akuity Platform January 2023 Update Cover Image

January brings a collection of updates to the Akuity Platform. The platform officially supports the Argo CD Image Updater, Git operations can now be delegated to a specific cluster, and the Notifications Wizard supports triggers and templates.

Argo CD Image Updater

The Argo CD Image Updater can check container registries for new image versions and automatically update Kubernetes Workloads based on version constraints. It supports Applications that are either generated from Helm or Kustomize, along with write-back support for Git.

You can take advantage of this functionally by enabling it with a click of a button on the settings page for the Argo CD Instance. You will experience first-class support for the image updater, with a wizard to simplify configuration, or you can use the built-in YAML editor (making it seamless to transition from an existing setup).

Git Delegate

When managing a multi-cluster environment with Argo CD, depending on the architecture you use, you may end up with many or all clusters attempting to access the repositories used by the Applications.

The new Git Delegate feature on the Akuity Platform allows you to specify a cluster that should be responsible for all the Git operations (well, not just “Git”, technically, the Helm repos too) for Argo CD.

This is especially useful when using a private Git server on a management cluster and strict network policies.

Notifications Wizard

The Notifications Wizard now supports configuring triggers and templates. You can import the official catalogue with a click of a button and easily customize them to suit your needs. Spend less time thinking about YAML and more time getting stuff done.
