The source code and default configuration of the Building Block is available in our GitLab.

Adding the Building Block

Add the directory syseleven-memcached to your control repository. Add a .gitlab-ci.yml to the directory with the following content:

  - project: syseleven/building-blocks/helmfiles/memcached
    file: JobDevelopment.yaml
    ref: 1.7.1
  - project: syseleven/building-blocks/helmfiles/memcached
    file: JobStaging.yaml
    ref: 1.7.1
  - project: syseleven/building-blocks/helmfiles/memcached
    file: JobProduction.yaml
    ref: 1.7.1

Remove environments you are not using by removing their include.
