Frequently Asked Questions

CodeNOW CI/CD

Can a stalled Application Build be canceled in the CodeNOW CI/CD pipeline?

  • It is currently not possible. As a possible workaround, you may run a new Build.

Can kaniko be implemented in the CodeNOW CI/CD pipeline?

  • Yes. CodeNOW uses kaniko for a docker build CI step.

Can a CodeNOW CI/CD pipeline be modified?

  • At the moment you cannot modify yourself a CodeNOW CI/CD pipeline. It will likely be possible in future CodeNOW releases.

Can a GitLab CI/CD pipeline be used alongside (or instead of) a CodeNOW CI/CD pipeline?

  • Both options are currently not available. If you are interested in that feature, please let us know! Our support pages give you the opportunity to send us new feature requests. We welcome your feedback!

Monitoring

Where can I see the resources consumed by a Pod?

What is the data monitoring retention period?

  • Currently 7 days.

Is it possible to extend the monitoring data retention period?

  • Yes, but only by opening a support ticket. Additional charges may be incurred.

How to display the DORA metrics for an application?

  • See DORA metrics.
  • The DORA metrics might not be displayed immediately after connecting the Production Environment with the Application (thus enabling the DORA metrics) because DORA metrics are computed once a day and the computation might not have been started for the day yet.

Custom CodeNOW cluster configuration

Can I use custom Docker Images in CodeNOW?

  • Yes. Use the Docker/Generic Component scaffolder. Because the configuration and deployment is not managed by CodeNOW, it comes without any guarantees that the configuration will work.

Will my custom cluster configuration implemented by the Helm2 Generic chart or the Docker/Generic scaffolder be automatically upgraded with the release of new versions of either of the scaffolders?

  • No, as it is technologically difficult to cover all use cases of these scaffolders.

Can the access to remote Docker image registries be disabled?

  • Yes. Please open a support ticket. We will perform the requested operation.

Miscellaneous FAQ

What is a Cluster in CodeNOW?

  • A Cluster is an instance of a CodeNOW-managed Kubernetes Cluster. It is deployed independently of the CodeNOW platform, but CodeNOW controls and manages the Cluster exclusively (so the user does not need to).

Can multiple Components share the same Git repository?

Can the allocated cluster hardware resources for a deployed third-party Service (for example PostgreSQL) be changed?

  • Yes, currently it is possible for PostgreSQL, for other deployed third-party services, please open a support ticket.
    note

    Changing the cluster hardware resources allocated to a PostgreSQL service can result in a downtime. Downtime duration depends, among other things, on the underlying hosting hardware, the number of database replicas, the size of the database, and the actual database utilization.

  • Changing allocated cluster hardware resources for a deployed PostgreSQL service:
    1. Navigate to Marketplace>Managed Services.
    2. Select the PostgreSQL service you want to change the resources for.
    3. Change the configuration in the Configuration section.
    4. Click Submit.
    5. Check the status of the PostgreSQL service in the table at the top of the Managed Service Detail>Status. The Status field displays the status of the update process (READY -> UPDATING -> READY).
