Manage Projects


Once you have spin installed and configured, you can use it to start managing your Spinnaker project dashboards as code.

spin can manage the whole lifecycle of your projects:

$ spin project
   project [command]

  project, prj

Available Commands:
  delete        Delete the provided project
  get           Get the config for the specified project
  get-pipelines Get the pipelines for the specified project
  list          List the all projects
  save          Save the provided project

  -h, --help   help for project

Global Flags:
      --config string            path to config file (default $HOME/.spin/config)
      --default-headers string   configure default headers for Gate client as comma separated list (e.g. key1=value1,key2=value2)
      --gate-endpoint string     Gate (API server) endpoint (default http://localhost:8084)
  -k, --insecure                 ignore certificate errors
      --no-color                 disable color (default true)
  -o, --output string            configure output formatting
  -q, --quiet                    squelch non-essential output

Use " project [command] --help" for more information about a command.

The following assumes Spinnaker is running and Gate is listening on http://localhost:8084. If Gate is running elsewhere, you can set the Gate endpoint with the global --gate-endpoint flag.

Managing your project’s lifecycle

Create and update projects with save

$ spin project save --file <path to project json>

Project save succeeded

Note that save accepts project in JSON format. You can quickly export an existing project into a valid argument to the --file flag by using the get command.

You can also template the pipeline JSON using your favorite templating engine. A demo of creating projects via spinnaker’s jsonnet library, sponnet, can be seen here:

List projects list

spin project list

  "config": {
   "applications": [...],
   "clusters": [...],
   "pipelineConfigs": [...]

Retrieve a single project with get

Get a single project with get:

spin project get <project name>
"config": {
 "applications": [...],
 "clusters": [...],
 "pipelineConfigs": [...]

Get a project’s pipelines with get-pipelines

Get a project’s pipelines with get-pipelines:

spin project get-pipelines <project name>

  "application": "my-app"
  "stages": [...]

Delete a project with delete

spin project delete --name <project name>

Project deleted
