Keptn v1 reached EOL December 22, 2023. For more information see

values (Keptn helm-service)

The values.yaml configuration file defines the configuration used when installing Keptn with a Helm chart; see Installing Keptn using the Helm chart. Values is a built-in object of Helm templates; see the Helm documentation at Values Files.


See values.yaml in the Keptn GitHub repository for Keptn default Helm values file.


The recommended practice is the declarative approach: you create your own Keptn values file that includes your customizations then use your customized values file to install Keptn. Alternatively, you can also set Helm values with --set during helm commands; this is the imperative approach. The –set flags take precendence over whatever you have configured in your values.yaml file so can be used to temporarily override a value when necessary.


Differences between versions

Keptn 0.17.0 changes

Keptn Helm chart was refactored heavily in Release 0.17.0 to make it ready for future features and structural changes.

  • The following Helm values changed for the Control Plane Helm chart:

    • continuous-delivery -> continuousDelivery
    • control-plane: Since the control-plane and continuous-delivery charts were merged into one, all values previously under control-plane are now just directly in the values root without the control-plane key.
    • All values under control-plane.common were moved to the root level of the values. e.g. control-plane.common.strategy.type -> strategy.type
    Diff with old values on the left and updated values on the right
  • Values for the Execution Plane Helm chart changed for helm-service and jmeter-service:

    • resources -> helm-service.resources/jmeter-service.resources
    • The distributor got its own set of resources in the values file. You can adjust them or leave them at the sensible defaults.
