Experimental Features

This doc covers experimental features in Tekton Chains.

Currently, experimental features include:

PubSub Storage Backend Support

Support for PubSub storage backend was introduced in chains. The first PubSub provider implementation is Kafka, and more may follow in the future.


To enable the Kafka backend run:

kubectl patch configmap chains-config -n tekton-chains -p='{"data": {storage.pubsub.provider": "kafka","storage.pubsub.topic": "chains", "storage.pubsub.kafka.bootstrap.servers":"kafka-0.kafka-headless.default.svc.cluster.local:9092"}}'

Note that the storage.pubsub.kafka.bootstrap.servers value needs to be adjusted to point to the list of bootstrap servers your cluster is connected to.
