Testing The Pipeline Environment

It is a very simple process to test your pipeline environment. Follow the steps below:

  1. Explore the Spinnaker Dashboard [ Each application in Spinnaker consists of two dashboards those are for pipelines and infrastructure. The pipeline dashboard can be utilized to view the executions of each pipelines of the application while the infrastructure dashboard can be used to view the deployed resources for the application]

    Navigate to the Spinnaker dashboard at https://spinnaker.example.comand select Applications > wso2mi > Pipelines.

    Spinnaker-Dashboard

    once the user click on the pipeline tab the pipeline details will be displayed. Refer the below image:

    Pipeline-Page

    The Spinnaker dashboard for a particular product shows the progress of the deployment.

    You are presented with three pipelines where one is active.

    1. Deploy Dev : Pipeline responsible for executing the tasks in deploying the changes to Dev environment and it's active by default. 

    2. Deploy Staging : Pipeline responsible for executing the tasks in deploying the changes to the Staging environment.

    3. Deploy Prod : Pipeline responsible for executing the tasks in deploying the changes to the Production environment.

    Once the changes have been deployed to the Dev environment, you will be prompted to provide a manual input in order to proceed and to make a deployment to Staging.

    Manual-Input

    Before proceeding with the manual judgment, let's examine our WSO2 Micro Integrator deployment in the Dev environment.

    Navigate to Infrastructure tab > Load Balancers > ingress wso2mi-dev-micro-integrator.

    Infrastructure-Tab

    Ingress information of current deployments can be observed here. The Ingress IP address of the Micro Integrator Dev environment can be obtained from the sidebar to the right.

Invoking Services

Send the following request through a Curl command and observe the output.

$ curl -k https://mi.dev.wso2.com/services/HelloWorld  
You will get the following response: {"Hello":"World"}
You have deployed WSO2 Micro Integrator into your Development environment! For more information on using WSO2 Micro Integrator, please take a look at our documentation.

Logging

Logging function is implemented in the pipeline utilizing resources provided by Elastic search and Kibana.

The Kibana dashboard can be accessed by navigating to https://kibana.example.com on a browser of choice.

In the dashboard, select Index Patterns,and Click Create index pattern.

Dashboard Dashboard

Let’s observe the logs in the Analytics Dashboard.

To do so, provide wso2mi-dev-wso2micro-integrator-node as an index pattern, andselect Next step

Thereafter, create a filter providing the @timestamp field name. Index-Pattern

Once the index pattern is created, Analytics Dashboard logs can be observed by clicking the Discover button on the left of the page.
