Turbonomic - GitOps Integration using Webhooks workflows

Several customers request GitOps integration with Turbonomic, however native integration (ArgoCD + Github/Gitlab) does not fully meet this demand.

My suggestion is to create a new integration option, where kubeturbo just collects information from ArgoCD like repo, branch, path, etc., and sends it to Turbonomic. And Turbo adds and makes this information available through webhooks actions.

    Thank you Fabio for taking the time to provide your ideas to IBM. We value the relationship with you and appreciate your willingness to share details about your ideas. IBM has evaluated the request and has determined that it cannot be implemented at this time or does not align with our current strategy or roadmap. If you have any additional feedback, thoughts or ideas, or if there is anything else we can do, please do not hesitate to reply to this message to continue the conversation. As Eva mentioned we are looking at a framework approach/path to send our actions into any GitOps pipeline. Thanks

    Webhooks are unfortunately not designed to be VCS (Version Control Software aka the Source of Truth) clients to allow for merge / commit actions.

    Turbo actions are always available via API and webhooks can take actions to another place. But then another program would need to convert the actions and merge that into the VCS source of truth. Webhooks would not be able to handle the challenge of merging into Helm charts and values.yamls, which requires a map or translator of how limits/requests are exposed and specified.

    Kubeturbo discovering repo, branch etc is not a given either because people can implement pipelines to have a hub cluster server (ArgoCD has such a hub configuration), which means that we need another mechanism to feed into the framework workload path, repo, relevant VCS info.

    Turbo is looking at other frameworks such as Kubestellar, and even partnering with another company who has the ability to send our actions into any GitOps pipeline.
