Production Setup

Running your own Tellery with Kubernetes

Artifact Hub


  • Helm 3.0+
  • Kubernetes 1.10+


  • (Required) Postgresql 10.0+
  • (Optional) Redis 5.0+
  • (Optional) Object Storage Service ( AWS S3, Aliyun OSS or others compatible with S3 protocol)
  • For notifications, you would need
    • Email: An email address and an email server

Installing the Chart#

First of all, add the repo

helm repo add tellery-stable
helm repo update

To install the helm chart with release name e.g. tellery (replace this by your need, the following commands will all use the name tellery):

helm install tellery tellery-stable/tellery \
--set \
--set postgresql.enabled=true

If you want to provide advanced parameters with your installation you can check the full Configuration.

Installing with external Postgresql#

helm install tellery tellery-stable/tellery \
--set \
--set \
--set externalPostgresql.port=5432 \
--set externalPostgresql.username=postgres \
--set externalPostgresql.password=password \
--set externalPostgresql.database=tellery

Uninstall the Chart#

helm uninstall tellery


So far the connector can be only deployed with single replica.

For tellery main service, if you wanna go with multiple replicas, you have to configure a redis storage for the state synchronization. To Configure the redis storage, see Redis Configuration.

The only mandatory config that have to be given by user is, see System Configuration for more details.


The following table lists the configurable parameters of the Tellery chart and their default values.

Postgresql Configuration#

You can choose PostgreSQL deployed by Helm by --set postgresql.enabled=true or External PostgreSQL by --set, if both are configured, PostgreSQL deployed by Helm will be used.

PostgreSQL deployed by Helm is base on Postgresql Helm Chart, you can see it for more configurations.

externalPostgresql.hostExternal postgresql hostnull
externalPostgresql.portExternal postgresql port5432
externalPostgresql.databaseExternal postgresql Database nametellery
externalPostgresql.usernameExternal postgresql usernamepostgres
externalPostgresql.passwordExternal postgresql passwordnull

Object Storage Configuration#

If you use PG as object storage, you only need to set objectStorage.type=postgres.

objectStorage.endpoint is optional when you are using AWS S3.

objectStorage.typeObject storage typepostgres
objectStorage.endpointObject storage endpointnull
objectStorage.bucketObject storage bucketnull
objectStorage.regionObject storage regionnull
objectStorage.accessKeyObject storage access keynull
objectStorage.secretKeyObject storage secret keynull

Redis Configuration#

You can choose Redis deployed by Helm by --set redis.enabled=true or External Redis by --set externalRedis.enabled=true, if both are configured, Redis deployed by Helm will be used.

Redis deployed by Helm is base on Redis Helm Chart, you can see it for more configurations

Email Server Configuration#

email.hostMail server host''
email.portMail server port587
email.usernameMail server username''
email.passwordMail server password''

email.fromSystem mail sender's email address''

System Configuration# is required, setting it, to specify the access domain of Tellery service

Using the --set key\value[,key=value] argument to specify each parameter

helm install tellery tellery-stable/tellery --set system.secretKey=xxx --set web.replicas=2

Or using the yaml to specify each parameter

Copy these default configuration into a new file named tellery-config.yaml, then modify as your need.

helm install tellery tellery-stable/tellery -f tellery-config.yaml
