VersionFilter

versionFilter allows to specify the kind of version retrieved from a resource and its version pattern. Default value is "latest" as we want to retrieve the newest version from a resource.

latest

If kind is set to latest then no need to specify the patter as we gonna retrieve the newest version from the resource.

Example
sources:
  kubectl:
    kind: githubRelease
    spec:
      owner: "kubernetes"
      repository: "kubectl"
      token: "{{ requiredEnv .github.token }}"
      username: "john"
      versionFilter:
        kind: latest
    transformers:
      - trimPrefix: "kubernetes-"

Return the latest Github release and remove "kubernetes-" from it.

regex

If versionFilter.kind is set to regex then we can use versionFilter.pattern to specify a regular expression to return the newest version returned from a resource matching the regex If no versionFilter.pattern is provided then it uses '.*' which return the newest version

sources:
  kubectl:
    kind: githubRelease
    spec:
      owner: "kubernetes"
      repository: "kubectl"
      token: "{{ requiredEnv .github.token }}"
      username: "john"
      versionFilter:
        kind: regex
        pattern: "kubernetes-1.(\d*).(\d*)$"
    transformers:
      - trimPrefix: "kubernetes-"

⇒ Return the newest kubectl version matching pattern "kubernetes-1.(\d*).(\d*)$" and remove "kubernetes-" from it

semver

If versionFilter.kind is set to semver then we can use versionFilter.pattern to specify version pattern as explained here. In the process we also sort. If no versionFilter.pattern is provided then it fallback to '*' which return the newest version. If a version doesn’t respect semantic versioning, then it’s not the value is just ignored.

Remark

In the process we drop any characters not respecting semantic version like in this version "v1.0.0", we drop the "v" but we can added it back using transformers.

example
  jenkins-wiki-exporter:
    kind: githubRelease
    spec:
      owner: "jenkins-infra"
      repository: "jenkins-wiki-exporter"
      token: "{{ requiredEnv .github.token }}"
      username: "john"
      version: "~1.10"
      versioning:
        kind: semver
    transformers:
      - addPrefix: "v"

⇒ Return the version "v1.10.3"
