Re: How to set with cf-release spiff templates ?

Guillaume Berche

Thanks Joseph for your response. Any chance that the OSS build pipeline
would update the spiff template with the current version number of the cf
release being built, as to avoid each consummers of the release to manually
update version number when updating ? Ideally by having the
spiff templates override the default value (yet-to-be-specified in the
release's spec file, see [3]) by the current cf release number ?

I was trying to manually assign this value with meta.releases[0].version,
but I see that meta.releases[0].version seems to always specify 'latest'
[2]. One possibility would have to specify the current release number (e.g.

Thanks in advance,

In the meantime, you can override `version` and `description`, they are
currently used to populate the info endpoint, but they may change in the
process of doing the above story.

After the story is done, we'll add the attributes to the template so they
are easy to override, but for now you'll need to manually edit your
manifest to add the `version` and `description` properties.

I'm trying to assign and [1] (to
merge meta.releases[0].version if cf release version), as to be able to
describe to end users which cf version is currently deployed from a "cf
curl v2/info" command.

I'm however struggling with spiff syntax to do so. I trial-and-errored
around modifying cf-release/templates as to allow for the merge without
luck so far.

Anyone succeeded in doing so without forking standard spiff templates ?

Thanks in advance,
