The chart-verifier executable is packaged as a CLI tool, which can be installed from OpenShift Tools Installer action.

  2. Have a Helm chart to verify.
  3. Make sure that helm install succeeds on your cluster, and that any tests pass.

Example Workflow Job

Refer to the example.

    name: Verify Helm Chart
    runs-on: ubuntu-20.04
      - uses: redhat-actions/oc-login@v1
          openshift_server_url: ${{ secrets.OPENSHIFT_SERVER }}
          openshift_token: ${{ secrets.OPENSHIFT_TOKEN }}

        # Install chart-verifier CLI
      - uses: redhat-actions/openshift-tools-installer@v1
          source: github
          chart-verifier: latest

      - uses: redhat-actions/chart-verifier@v1.0.0
          verify_args: --chart-set githubOwner=redhat-actions


If the verify step appears to be stuck, it is probably waiting for your chart to be installed successfully. The tool will wait up to 5 minutes by default for helm install to succeed.

Make sure your chart can be installed on the currently logged in cluster before using the chart-verifier.
