A trigger is a webhook that you can create for your applications in Application Center. You can deploy applications created in Application Center to an ACK cluster by using triggers in a third party environment.

Prerequisites

Triggers can be used to update or redeploy applications created in Application Center. You must create applications in Application Center before you can use triggers.

Scenarios

Triggers are applicable in the following scenarios:
  • Use triggers in a third party environment to redeploy applications that have already been deployed in ACK clusters by Application Center.
  • Use triggers to automatically connect Application Center to existing continuous integrate (CI) systems, such as a Container Registry delivery pipeline, Jenkins, and GitLab CI/CD. This forms a complete CI/CD pipeline.

Precautions

Keep your triggers safe. If a trigger is leaked, you must delete the trigger and create a new one.
