StreamPipes k8s - The Operator's Dream

StreamPipes k8s is a helm chart to deploy StreamPipes on Kubernetes.

Current version: 0.68.0

We provide two helm chart templates to get you going:

  • default: a lightweight template with few pipeline elements, needs less memory
  • full: contains more pipeline elements, requires >16 GB RAM (recommended)


Requires Helm ( and an active connection to a kubernetes cluster with a running tiller server.

Tested with:

  • K8s v1.19.3
  • Helm v3.1.2
  • Minikube v1.15.1 (recommended for local testing)

NOTE: We experienced some problems with using host path volumes in Docker Desktop environments for persistent storage. Therefore, we suggest to use minikube for local testing.

Local testing

We recommend using minikube for local testing. Follow instructions in their docs to setup test environment

Once installed, start local minikube node with a mapped host volume:

minikube start --mount-string ${HOME}/streampipes-k8s:/streampipes-k8s --mount --memory=4g --cpus=4

Start the a helm chart template by running the following command from the root of this folder:

NOTE: Starting might take a while since we also initially pull all Docker images from Dockerhub.

helm install streampipes ./

# full template only recommend if you have sufficient resources
# helm install streampipes ./ --set deployment=full

After a while, all containers should successfully started, indicated by the Running status.

For minikube users:

NOTE: If you're running Docker Desktop or Minikube with a local k8s cluster, the above step to use your host IP might not work. Luckily, you can port-forward a service port to your localhost using the following command to be able to access the UI either via http://localhost or http://<HOST_IP> (you require sudo to run this command in order to bind to a privileged port).

kubectl port-forward svc/ui --address= 80:80

Deleting the current helm chart deployment:

helm del streampipes

We retain the created persistent volume. You need to manually delete it:

rm -rf ${HOME}/streampipes-k8s
