What information can I discover about my Applications?
Applications being managed by Weave GitOps are displayed in a list. Clicking the name of an Application allows you to view more details including:
- It's name, deployment type (Kustomize or Helm), URL for the source repository being synchronized to the cluster and the specific Path within the repository where we are looking for deployment manifests.
- A reconciliation graph detailing the on-cluster components which have been created as a result of the deployment.
- Information from Flux regarding the state of the reconciliation
- A list of the 10 most recent commits to the source git repository helping you to verify which change has been applied to the cluster. This includes a hyperlink back to your git provider for each commit.
The GitOps Dashboard is under active development, watch this space for exciting new features.
