Actions

TriggerMesh Actions are based on Tekton Pipeline. Tekton builds the container images used to run application pipelines expressed as GitHub Actions.

Create a Task

You can express a Task in a manifest. For example, the following manifest represents a Task that will echo Hello World:

apiVersion: tekton.dev/v1alpha1
kind: Task
metadata:
  name: echo-hello-world
spec:
  steps:
    - name: echo
      image: ubuntu
      command:
        - echo
      args:
        - "hello world"

The TM console provides an easy to use YAML window for deploying Tasks from the browser. This is accessed by selecting Tasks from the Navigation menu.

Click on the Create Task button and select from YAML, to create a new task.

You will be presented with the following view in which you can paste your Task manifest.
