Infrastructure as Code and GitOps are ongoing big topics related to DevOps and CI/CD which needs effective automation to shorter the Software Development Lifecycle and simplify production deployments. In this blog post we don't talk much about these processes and methodologies. The blog post is more about how to reduce efforts to build an automation by using the IBM Accelerator Toolkit.
In this blog post we use an existing template file, that we created for a custom resource to insert the needed value for an URL to point to a container image in a container registry, to create custom resource yaml file we use to deploy that custom resource . The template file contains a string which we will replace with the content of URL to the container image. We haven't used helm, kustomize to do that in this situation.
