As a service administrator, you can make Code Stream pipelines available in the Service Broker catalog by adding a Code Stream content source and sharing the pipelines. The pipelines are the continuous integration and delivery model of your software release process.

Workflow diagram for importing and deploying Code Stream pipelines.

After you import the pipelines, you share them with project members so that they can deploy the pipelines from the catalog. After the pipeline deployment execution completes, the users can access review the inputs and outputs, and use the output, pipeline, and execution links.

Prerequisites

  • Verify that the pipelines that you are importing are enabled and released in Code Stream before you import it. See How do I run a pipeline and see results in Using and Managing VMware Code Stream.

Procedure

  1. Import pipelines from Code Stream.
    1. Select Content and Policies > Content Sources.
    2. Click New, and then click Code Stream Pipelines.
    3. Enter the Name for this content source.
    4. Select the Source project and then click Validate.
      The validation process tests the connection and provides the number of released pipelines that are associated with the project in Code Stream.
    5. Click Create and Import.
    The Content Sources page lists your new source and the number of discovered and imported items.
  2. Share the imported items with the source project so that they appear in the catalog.
    1. Select Content and Policies > Content Sharing.
    2. Select the source project that includes the users who have permission to request the pipelines.
    3. Click Add Items and then select one or more pipelines to share with the project.

      You can select all the items imported from a content source or you can expand the source tree and select individual items.

    4. Click Save.
    The Content Sharing page lists all the items entitled to the selected project. The pipelines are also added to the catalog where the project members can request them.
  3. Verify that the pipeline is available in the catalog to the members of the selected projects.
    1. Click Catalog, locate the imported pipeline.
    2. Click Request and provide any required information.
    3. Click Submit.
      The provisioning process begins and the Deployments tab opens with your current request at the top.
  4. Monitor the provisioning process to ensure successful deployment.
    1. Click Deployments and locate your deployed catalog item.
    2. Monitor the card status until it is successful.
    You can open the deployment, review the inputs and outputs, use the links to access the output URL, and use the links to the pipeline and execution in Code Stream.

Results

The released pipelines are imported into Service Broker, shared in the catalog, and deployable.
