commonLabels

Add labels and selectors to add all resources.

Add labels and selectors to all resources. If the label key already is present on the resource, the value will be overridden.

Selectors for resources such as Deployments and Services shouldn’t be changed once the resource has been applied to a cluster.

Changing commonLabels to live resources could result in failures.
