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

To view the documentation for the latest version, select 23.3.01 from the Product version picker.

Setting up the deployment input configuration file

When you install BMC Helix 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.

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 configuration 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: 

To manually configure the deployment input configuration file

  1. Download the Deployment input configuration file template.
  2. Open the file by using an editor.
    This is a Shell script file. We recommend using editors such as Notepad++, which support editing Shell script files.
  3. Enter the required parameters in the file.
    You will use this file while installing BMC Helix IT Service Management.

    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
