How to update tls-automator template if needed 

Version [2.0.3] mentioned in the build pipeline. After we changed it to 2.1.1, the certs got updated successfully.

The process would be to update the helm chart to get the latest templates. The process will depend on how they are using them.

  • Helm Repo
  • $ helm repository update
  • Git Repo (cloned repo)
  • Backup any changes made (values file is most important)
  • $ git pull - you could also clone the latest repo to a different folder and review the changes manually.
