This is an introduction to the CESSDA Technical Infrastructure. It provides both an overview and detail of the various Google Cloud Platform projects that it is composed of, and the Jenkins pipeline that is used to build, test and deploy components.
Naming Conventions - abbreviations and terminology used in this Wiki. Useful background information.
Technical Infrastructure Overview is the starting point for people who are unfamiliar with CESSDA’s Technical Infrastructure. It gives a broad overview of the purpose and composition of the various components and deployment environments, the deployment process and the responsibilities of developers vs. the CESSDA Platform team. It links to the following pages (which can be read in conjunction with it, or on a standalone basis).
GCP Main Project Structure - top down decomposition of the CESSDA Development and CESSDA Production GCP projects.
Deployment Workflow - shows the step-by-step process by which application components are deployed and the various technologies that are involved. Helm charts are used to orchestrate the deployment of an application’s components.
Deployment Pipeline Details - a step by step explanation of the build and deployment processes.
Deploying Core Products - explains the responsibilities of various Actors in order to get a new release deployed.
Technical Infrastructure Details - shows a general overview of the GCP projects, Jenkins CI/CD toolchain and Bitbucket code repositories and how they are integrated within the deployment pipeline.
Jenkinsfile Template - This shows the general form of a Jenkinsfile used with a non-Maven project.
Jenkinsfile Template for JDK11 Maven Projects - shows the general form of a Jenkinsfile used with a Maven project based on JDK11.
