How to Deploy Springboot App into AKS cluster using Jenkins Pipeline and Kubectl CLI Plug-in | Deploy Microservices into AKS cluster using Jenkins Pipeline

We are going to learn how to Automate build and deployment of Springboot Microservices App into Azure Kubernetes Cluster(AKS) using Jenkins pipeline. 

Sample springboot App Code:

I have created a sample Springboot App setup in GitHub. Click here to access code base in GitHub. 

Jenkins pipeline will:

- Automate maven build(jar) using Jenkins
- Automate Docker image creation
- Automate Docker image upload into Azure container registry
- Automate Deployments to Azure Kubernetes Cluster

Watch Steps in YouTube Channel:

Pre-requisites:

1. AKS cluster needs to be up running. You can create AKS cluster using any of one of the below options:

2. Jenkins instance is setup and running
3. Make sure to Install Docker, Docker pipeline and Kubectl CLI plug-ins are installed in Jenkins

4.  Install Docker in Jenkins and Jenkins have proper permission to perform Docker builds
5. Install Kubectl on Jenkins instance
6. ACR is also setup in Azure cloud. 
8. Dockerfile created along with the application source code for springboot App.
9. Modify K8S manifest file per acr, image name for AKS Deployment.
10. Install Azure CLI on your local machine. (We will be creating the AKS cluster from our local machine)

The Code for this video is here:
and make necessary changes in jenkins-aks-deploy-from-acr.yaml file after you fork into your account.

Step # 1 - Create Credentials to connect to ACR from Jenkins

Go to Azure Portal console, go to container registry
Settings--> Access keys
Get the username and password 
Go to Jenkins-> Manage Jenkins. Create credentials.


Enter ID as ACR and enter some text for description and Save

Step #2 - Create Credentials for connecting to AKS cluster using Kubeconfig

Go to Jenkins UI, click on Credentials -->


Click on Global credentials
Click on Add Credentials

use secret file from drop down.

you should see the nodes running in EKS cluster.

kubectl get nodes


Execute the below command to get kubeconfig info, copy the entire content of the file:
cat ~/.kube/config




Open your text editor or notepad, copy and paste the entire content and save in a file.
We will upload this file.

Enter ID as K8S and choose File and upload the file and save.


Step # 3 - Create a pipeline in Jenkins
Create a new pipeline job.

Step # 4 - Copy the pipeline code from below
Make sure you change values as per your settings highlighted in yellow below:

pipeline {
  tools {
        maven 'Maven3'
    }
    agent any
        environment {
        //once you create ACR in Azure cloud, use that here
        registryName = "myacrrepo3210"
        //- update your credentials ID after creating credentials for connecting to ACR
        registryCredential = 'ACR'
        dockerImage = ''
        registryUrl = 'myacrrepo3210.azurecr.io'
    }
    
    stages {
        stage('checkout') {
            steps {
                checkout([$class: 'GitSCM', branches: [[name: '*/main']], extensions: [], userRemoteConfigs: [[url: 'check_out_from_your_repo_after_forking_my_repo']]])
            }
        }
        
        stage ('Build') {
        steps {
            sh 'mvn clean install'           
        }
     }
     
    stage ('Build Docker image') {
        steps {
                script {
                    dockerImage = docker.build registryName
                }
            }
        }
        
    // Uploading Docker images into ACR
        stage('Upload Image to ACR') {
         steps{   
             script {
                docker.withRegistry( "http://${registryUrl}", registryCredential ) {
                dockerImage.push()
                }
            }
          }
        }
        
        stage ('K8S Deploy') {
          steps {
            script {
                withKubeConfig([credentialsId: 'K8S', serverUrl: '']) {
                sh ('kubectl apply -f  jenkins-aks-deploy-from-acr.yaml')
                }
            }
        }
     }
    }
}

Step # 5 - Build the pipeline


Step # 6 - Verify deployments to AKS

kubectl get pods

kubectl get services

Steps # 7 - Access Springboot App Deployed in AKS cluster
Once deployment is successful, go to browser and enter above load balancer URL mentioned above

You should see page like below:


Clean up the Cluster:

To avoid charges from Azure, you should clean up unneeded resources. When the cluster is no longer needed, use the az group delete command to remove the resource group, container service, and all related resources. 

az group delete --name myResourceGroup --yes --no-wait

CICD Process Flow Diagram | Implement CICD using Jenkins

 CICD Process Flow Diagram - Implement CICD using Jenkins


What is Continuous Integration?

Continuous integration is a DevOps software development practice where developers regularly merge their code changes into a central repository, after which automated builds and tests are run.

The key goals of continuous integration are to find and address bugs quicker, improve software quality, and reduce the time it takes to validate and release new software updates.

Jenkins is a popular continuous integration tool. Jenkins can integrate with other tools using plug-ins.

How does Continuous Integration Work?

Developers frequently commit to a shared repository using a version control system such as Git. Prior to each commit, developers may choose to run local unit tests on their code as an extra verification layer before integrating. A continuous integration service automatically builds and runs unit tests on the new code changes to immediately surface any errors.

Benefits of Continuous Integration
  • Improve Developers productivity 
  • Find bugs early in the software development stage
  • Deliver products into market place sooner
  • Improve the feedback loop
What is Continuous Delivery?

Continuous delivery is a software development practice where code changes are automatically prepared for a release to production. Continuous delivery is the next extension of continuous integration. The delivery phase is responsible for packaging an artifact together to be delivered to end-users. This phase runs automated building tools to generate this artifact.

Benefits of Continuous Delivery
  • Automate the Software Release Process
  • Improve Developer Productivity
  • Find bugs early in the software development stage
  • Deliver updates faster

How to Recover SonarQube Admin password | How to unlock SonarQube admin password in Postgres SQL

Let's say you have setup SonarQube using Docker or Docker Compose, you have forgotten the admin password for SonarQube. This article helps you to reset/recover the admin password. If you changed and then lost the admin password, you can reset it using the following steps.

Watch Steps in YouTube channel:


Pre-requisites:

As we have configured SonarQube using Docker compose, We need to login to PostgreSQL running inside postgres docker container and execute update command to reset to default password.

Step 1: Login into PostgreSQL docker container

type below command to see the list of containers running in your EC2 instance.

sudo docker ps

Copy the container ID from above command. 

Now login into PostgresSQL docker container

docker exec -it <container_id> /bin/bash

Step 2:  Connect to PostgreSQL database by executing below command:

psql -p 5432 -d sonarqube -U sonar -h <container_id>

now enter the password for sonarqube database:

from my lab exercise, password for sonar user is admin123

Make sure it shows sonarqube which is your database schema inside PostgresSQL db.

Step 3: Execute the below query to change admin password to default password which is also admin

update users set crypted_password='100000$t2h8AtNs1AlCHuLobDjHQTn9XppwTIx88UjqUm4s8RsfTuXQHSd/fpFexAnewwPsO6jGFQUv/24DnO55hY6Xew==', salt='k9x9eN127/3e/hf38iNiKwVfaVk=', hash_method='PBKDF2', reset_password='true', user_local='true' where login='admin';

Step 4: Login to SonarQube UI and login as admin/admin

Login as admin/admin

Now it will immediately ask you to change the default admin password to something else:

That's it! That is how you recover SonarQube admin password.
