This documentation supports an earlier version of BMC Helix IT Service Management on-premises deployment.

To view the documentation for the latest version, select 22.1.06 from the Product version picker.

Setting up the deployment input configuration file

When you install BMC Helix IT Service Management, the HELIX_ONPREM_DEPLOYMENT Jenkins pipeline requires various parameters to deploy applications in your environment. These parameters are passed through the deployment input configuration file.

The HELIX_ONPREM_DEPLOYMENT Jenkins pipeline can automatically generate the deployment input configuration file. You can also choose to create the deployment input configuration file manually and pass it to the HELIX_ONPREM_DEPLOYMENT Jenkins pipeline.

Important

Manual creation of the deployment input configuration file is an advanced option and do not use this option for installation in non-production environments. We recommend that you use the automatic deployment input configuration file creation option.

Review information in this topic to understand the method to manually create the deployment input configuration file.

Using the deployment input configuration file

Administrators provide inputs to the HELIX_ONPREM_DEPLOYMENT Jenkins pipeline or create the input config file manually and pass it to the HELIX_ONPREM_DEPLOYMENT Jenkins pipeline. 

The following screenshot shows the options to select the deployment input configuration file: 

Use the following template to update the input configuration file and perform the given steps:

Deployment input configuration file template

To manually configure the deployment input configuration file

  1. Download the file.
  2. Open the file by using an editor.
  3. Enter the required parameters in the file.
    This is a Shell script file. We recommend using editors such as Notepad++, which support editing Shell script files.
  4. From the INPUT_CONFIG_METHOD list, select Manual_Input_File.
  5. Click Choose file to upload the file.

Warning

You can rename the Deployment Input Configuration file. However, the HELIX_ONPREM_DEPLOYMENT Jenkins pipeline renames the file to the following format:

<CUSTOMER_SERVICE>-<ENVIRONMENT>.sh

    Once the configuration file is completed should we build the HELIX_ONPREM_DEPLOYMENT pipeline?

      Hi Ariel,

      After the configuration file is complete, we set up the installation environment and then perform the installation by using the HELIX_ONPREM_DEPLOYMENT pipeline..

      Thanks,

      Poonam
