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
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.
