Development Workflow

Get the code

$ git clone
$ git clone

Do your changes

Create the image

$ make build-image-sdn-test

This will call podman under the hood and it’ll create an image with your changes for openshift/sdn

Push your image to

$ podman push sdn-test<your_quay_user>/sdn-test:latest

Deploy a cluster with your changes

Using Cluster Network Operator

  1. Create a directory for your deployment

$ mkdir /tmp/deployment
  1. Get your openshift-install binary and your pull-secrets

  2. Go to your Cluster Network Operator (CNO) Directory

  3. Run hack/run-locally

$ hack/ -i <your_openshift_install_path> -c <your_install_directory> -n <sdn|ovn> -m <your_quay_image_path>

Using Cluster-Bot

This assumes you already have a PR around, and access to cluster-bot under the CoreOS Slack channel.

Just query cluster-bot and send him a message with the following:

launch openshift/sdn#<PR_NUMBER> aws

Update your CNO image without deleting your cluster

update_cno ()
    oc patch clusterversion version --type json -p '[{"op":"add","path":"/spec/overrides","value":[{"kind":"Deployment","group":"apps","name":"network-operator","namespace":"openshift-network-operator","unmanaged":true}]}]'

custom_sdn ()
    oc -n openshift-network-operator delete deployment network-operator;
    oc -n openshift-sdn set image ds/sdn<your_quay_user>/sdn-test

Destroying your cluster once you’re done

Using Openshift Installer

$ openshift-install destroy cluster --dir <your_install_directory>
