Debug Gravity Application Installation failure


I am trying to deploy by Gravity Build but it seems to have some failure, UI also gave me a crash report logs too, gravity plan showing all successful but looking /var/log/telekube-system.log I see issue in install hook. Can you guide what to look into for more details or reason of failure.

here are the logs

Can you please share what version of gravity you are using?

Also, can you please share the install hook (redact internal information if needed)? Looking at the stack trace, it looks like the install failed to parse the install hook job for some reason, but it’s not evident from the exception why it wasn’t able to do so. I’m also not sure, why it wasn’t detected when tele build built the installer, but having a version of the job would help isolate why it’s failing.


@knisbet I am using 5.4.6 and now giving 5.5.0 a try shortly

tele version
Edition: enterprise
Version: 5.4.6
Git Commit: af617669d2d5d9ce55e45b05bfa7a1ef58f1d7cd

Job is

apiVersion: batch/v1
kind: Job
  name: install
      name: install
      restartPolicy: OnFailure
        - name: install
          command: ["/usr/local/bin/helm", "install", "/var/lib/gravity/resources/", "--set", "global.registry=leader.telekube.local:5000" ]


@knisbet, it is Fixed, I had app.yaml and helm charts in same directory, build was fine but during deployment I got error
error unmarshaling JSON: json: cannot unmarshal string into Go value of type v1.Job
I was trying to troubleshoot but no helpful logs, in the end moving all helm charts into a separate folder fixed it. updated command looks like

["/usr/local/bin/helm", “install”, “/var/lib/gravity/resources/folder”, “–set”, “global.registry=leader.telekube.local:5000” ]
