Setting up sources for Helm repositiories in the Marketplace is as simple as providing a:

  • Name: Must be a valid Kubernets Resource name
  • URL in the Source Form or by using the Advanced Editor.

Optional features include, setting a username and password.

Now your work is complete. Critical Stack will pull content from the specified repo and add them to the Marketplace.
