Each Elastic Path Commerce environment requires a dedicated ActiveMQ service.
Creating an ActiveMQ Container
To create an ActiveMQ container using CloudOps for Kubernetes, run the
create-or-delete-activemq-container job in Jenkins. It requires the following parameters:
When this parameter is selected, the specified ActiveMQ service and resources, including the container, will be deleted instead of created.
When this parameter is selected, this job creates two ActiveMQ deployments and services in a primary/standby HA configuration.
The URL to your hosted copy of the
cloudops-for-kubernetes Git repository.
The branch of the
cloudops-for-kubernetes Git repository to use during the deployment.
This job uses the value of
kubernetesNickname as the Kubernetes namespace where the ActiveMQ service is deployed, and in the domain name of the ActiveMQ service. If the namespace does not exist, this job creates it. To be compatible with Terraform, Kubernetes, and DNS domain name requirements, ensure that the
kubernetesNickname is lowercase and alphanumeric. When you deploy the Elastic Path stack that will use this ActiveMQ service, be certain to specify the same value for kubernetesNickname.
If you specify a nickname and namespace value where ActiveMQ is already deployed, then its configuration will be updated.
The network CIDR allowed to access the ActiveMQ admin console.
The tag of the ActiveMQ Docker image to be deployed.
The name of the AKS cluster to deploy the ActiveMQ container into.
domainName that was originally set in the
docker-compose.yml file used during bootstrap. You can override the DNS zone name if you have manually configured the DNS settings for the domain.
The job creates a container within the given namespace of the Kubernetes cluster.
The ActiveMQ Admin Console has a different URL format from the Elastic Path Commerce stack URLs because ActiveMQ receives an external-facing load balancer per service. If the ActiveMQ job is run with
HADeploy set to
true, there will be two admin console links. One link is not available and is the warm standby in the HA configuration.
For example, if
clusterName = jDoeCluster,
dnsZoneName = epcloud.mycompany.com and
kubernetesNickname = dev
HADeploy = true, the ActiveMQ Admin Console links are:
HADeploy = false, the ActiveMQ Admin Console link is:
