environments

The environments configuration is the most important part of the stackmate configuration file, since it contains all of your environments and services that are related to it. The structure of the object is as follows:
environments:
<stage name>:
<service name>:
... service configuration ...
<other stage name>:
....
As you can see, each environment is added as a key to the environments object and every service that should be deployed on every environment, should be a key to the corresponding environment.

Common Service Options

Every service on a stackmate configuration, should have a unique name and can be described with the following attributes:

Required attributes

  • type - The service's type. It should be one of the services available. Acceptable values are:
    • application - Configures an Application service, an application running on a container
    • object-store - Configures an object store service like AWS S3
    • memcached - Configures a managed Memcached cluster service (eg. AWS Elasticache)
    • mariadb - Configures a managed MariaDB instance (eg. MariaDB on AWS RDS)
    • mysql - Configures a managed MySQL instance (eg. MySQL on AWS RDS)
    • postgresql - Configures a managed PostgreSQL instance (eg. PostgreSQL on AWS RDS)
    • redis - Configures a managed Redis instance (eg. AWS Elasticache)
You can find more information for each service-specific options, on the corresponding page

Optional attributes

  • region - the region to deploy the service. If not provided, the default configuration for the project's region is used.
  • links - A list of services that are inter-connected. For example a mysql service could be linked to the application service in order to allow incoming connections from the application service.
  • externalLinks - A list of IPs of resources not deployed by Stackmate, to allow outside connections from
  • profile - A pre-made profile to use for the service. If not specified, the default profile is used for the service. You need to refer to every service separately in order to view the corresponding options available. You can browse the profiles available in our repository.
  • overrides - An object with attributes to override the default profile with. Each service has its own profile and own overrides. You need to refer to every service separately in order to view the corresponding options available.
These configuration options are available across all services on stackmate, and each service may or may not provide additional attributes to be configured by.
