Helm how to define .Release.Name value

KubernetesKubernetes Helm

Kubernetes Problem Overview

I have created basic helm template using helm create command. While checking the template for Ingress its adding the string RELEASE-NAME and appname like this RELEASE-NAME-microapp

How can I change .Release.Name value?

helm template --kube-version 1.11.1  microapp/

# Source: microapp/templates/ingress.yaml
apiVersion: extensions/v1beta1
kind: Ingress
  name: RELEASE-NAME-microapp
    app: microapp
    chart: microapp-0.1.0
    release: RELEASE-NAME
    heritage: Tiller
    kubernetes.io/ingress.class: nginx

This depends on what version of Helm you have; helm version can tell you this.

In Helm version 2, it's the value of the helm install --name parameter, or absent this, a name Helm chooses itself. If you're checking what might be generated via helm template that also takes a --name parameter.

In Helm version 3, it's the first parameter to the helm install command. Helm won't generate a name automatically unless you explicitly ask it to helm install --generate-name. helm template also takes the same options.

Also, in helm 3, if you want to specify a name explicitly, you should use the --name-template flag. e.g. helm template --name-template=dummy in order to use the name dummy instead of RELEASE-NAME
