Key-Value Pair Integration

Key-Value Pair Integration is used to inject configurations into Shippable DevOps Assembly Lines activities.

Creating an Integration

You can add this integration by following steps on the Adding an integration page.

Here is the information you need to create this integration:

  • Integration type -- Key-value
  • Name -- choose a friendly name for the integration
  • Key Values -- A collection of Key-Values

Usage in CI

You can use a Key-value integration with CI by adding it as an IN to the runCI job or by adding it to your shippable.yml as described here.

You can also set key-value pairs as environment variables in CI.

Usage in Assembly Lines

The Key-value integration can be used in the following resources:

Default Env Vars

When you create a resource with this integration, and use it as an IN or OUT for a runSh or runCI job, a set of environment variables is automatically made available that you can use in your scripts.

<NAME> is the the friendly name of the resource with all letters capitalized and all characters that are not letters, numbers or underscores removed. Any numbers at the beginning of the name are also removed to create a valid variable. For example, my-key-1 will be converted to MYKEY1, and my_key_1 will be converted to MY_KEY_1.

Environment variable Description
<NAME>_INTEGRATION_NAME Name supplied in the integration
MY_KEY_1 Name of the First Key defined and will have value set
MY_KEY_N Name of the Nth Key defined and will have value set

Shippable Utility Functions

The platform also provides a command line utility called shipctl that can be used to retrieve the values of these environment variables.

The specific function that can be used in the jobs yml is: shipctl get_integration_resource_field <resource name> <field name>.

Here is a table that provides the mapping from the environment variable to the field name.

Environment variable Field Name
MY_KEY_1 keyValue_key_1
MY_KEY_N keyValue_key_N

More information on other utility functions is documented here.
