Long term support
The helm chart inflation generator in kustomize is intended to be a limited subset of helm features to help with getting started with kustomize, and we cannot support the entire helm feature set.
The current builtin
For enhancements to the helm chart inflation generator feature, we will only support the following changes:
- bug fixes
- critical security issues
- additional fields that are analogous to flags passed to
helm template, except for flags such as
post-rendererthat allow arbitrary commands to be executed
We will not add support for:
- private repository or registry authentication
- OCI registries
- other large features that increase the complexity of the feature and/or have significant security implications
The next iteration of the helm inflation generator will take the form of a KRM function, which will have no such restrictions on what types of features we can add and support. You can see more details in the Helm support long term plan.
