Re: Helm versioning and CI/CD

Right, in other words, build the chart for the upcoming release, but override the values in the CI/CD pipeline if that's how you work internally.
Now, I attempted to do that using helm template directive to see what I get--and was disappointed.
$ helm template eureka --set .Chart.appVersion=java11port
Did not change appVersion for me. I tried ".Chart.appVersion", "appVersion", "Chart.appVersion" and could not get the command line to override the appVersion for me.
I need some kind of mechanism so I can override this value, otherwise I am going to end up with hundreds of nearly identical helm charts where the only difference is the appVersion.

The usual way app versioning in Helm works is, the chart has a value that represents which image tag the chart should install. That tag in turn typically maps to the application version. This doesn’t have to be true, so if a variation of it works better for you when writing your charts, feel free to use it, but for charts made publicly available, it’s generally considered a best practice and almost all of them work that way.
