Hi sreeni k.,

You are right, you have to manage Argocd rbac somehow. Ldap integration allows argocd to check users and groups exist in your AD. Authorization part handled by rbac configuration. I prefer using App of Apps pattern. So I keep Argocd configuration, applications & application projects definition yaml files in git repo which also managed by Argocd.

VMware Tanzu Portfolio is basically a software collection to build, run and manage modern container applications. Tanzu Application Service (formerly PCF) and Tanzu Kubernetes Grid Integrated (formerly PKS) are main solutions in Tanzu portfolio. In this article, we will discuss how we monitor these two platforms and applications on them and how it is automated.

What should we monitor? That is the another key question. Answer of…

Starting an update or upgrade process in any VMware Tanzu Platforms that has Ops Manager is usually very easy. To achieve that you simply click “Apply Changes” button. But tracking progress of installation or getting notifications about state of installation is not easy as well.

In that purpose, we ‘ll setup a slack integration project. To achieve this, following tasks are explained in this arcticle.


  1. Get Slack App and Webhook URL
  2. Pull “VMware Tanzu (Pivotal) Installation Notifier” Repository
  3. Edit “tanzu.env” File Regarding Your Environment
  4. (Optional) Build “VMware Tanzu (Pivotal) Installation Notifier” Image
  5. (Optional) Edit “docker-compose.yaml”
  6. Run!


  1. Linux/Unix Terminal Server must…
