Introduction Enterprise

GitOpsTemplates enable Application Developers to self-service components and services easily through the Weave GitOps Dashboard.

With a GitOpsTemplate, any resource that can be expressed in yaml (such as basic kubernetes resources, Flux primitives, TF controller, Crossplane, Cluster API) can be templated into a standardised definition, available for use.

Templates are simple YAML files, which can be enriched with Parameters, Variables, Metadata and conditions.

Whan an Application Developer uses a Template via the GIU, the rendered template is added to their GitOps repository via a PR. When merged and reconciled, the resources in the template are created. These can be any resource, such as a MachinePool for CAPI objects, a Flux Kustomization or a Terraform Controller resource.


The only restriction on GitOpsTemplates is that they are valid yaml. Beyond that, a rendered template can create any resource desired ✨.
