GitLab repository

API Documentation


We have three branches which are identical with deployment environment.

Folder ‘Docker’ holds Dockerfiles and required files for building images for Proxy. Subfolder contains python extension for dynamic configuration.

These images are stored in Gitlab image repository. Tag policy is set as <branch>-<hash_of_commit>. With this policy we can identifies where and when was application/image built.


Everything should be templates and jobs are only special configuration of templates.

  • Stages (master/beta/dev):
    • Build (auto/auto/auto)- build image for Proxy (‘Docker folder’). Used in Deploy stage
    • Deploy (manual/manual/manual)- grab image of Proxy from build stage and deploy it to Kubernetes


As for now, there is no cleaning job for this images. Also there needs to be settle up some “removing images” policy. !!!

Folder ‘k8s’ contains configuration for Kubernetes (deployment + service for apache + service for python extension)
