Horreum Operator

Deploying Horreum for production in OpenShift is easy using Horreum operator; you can install it through the Operator Marketplace. This operator installs Horreum, services it depends on - PostgreSQL database and Keycloak SSO - and for convenience also Hyperfoil Report.

Installation steps

  1. From OperatorHub install horreum in your namespace.
  2. Create a pvc in the namespace where horreum operator was installed (oc apply -f <your_pvc_filename>.yaml -n <your_horreum_namespace>). The pvc is required by the postgres database and must be in place before the database pod is created by the operator. PVC should have the same name as specified in the CR definition below. See example pvc definition:
apiVersion: v1
kind: PersistentVolumeClaim
  name: horreum-postgres
  - ReadWriteOnce
      storage: 5Gi
  volumeMode: Filesystem
  1. Create horreum CR, so that all pods wil lbe created by the horreum operator (oc apply -f <your_cr_filename>.yaml -n <your_horreum_namespace>). See an example of the horreum resource:
apiVersion: hyperfoil.io/v1alpha1
kind: Horreum
  name: example-horreum
    host: horreum.apps.mycloud.example.com
      host: keycloak.apps.mycloud.example.com
      host: grafana.apps.mycloud.example.com
    persistentVolumeClaim: horreum-postgres
      host: hyperfoil-report.apps.mycloud.example.com
    persistentVolumeClaim: hyperfoil-report

For detailed description of all properties refer to the CRD.

When using persistent volumes make sure that the access rights are set correctly and the pods have write access; in particular the PostgreSQL database requires that the mapped directory is owned by user with id 999.

If you’re planning to use secured routes (edge termination) it is recommended to set the tls: my-tls-secret at the first deploy; otherwise it is necessary to update URLs for clients horreum and horreum-ui in Keycloak manually. Also the Horreum pod needs to be restarted after Keycloak route update.

Currently you must set both Horreum and Keycloak route host explicitly, otherwise you could not log in (TODO).

When the horreum resource gets ready, login into Keycloak using administrator credentials (these are automatically created if you don’t specify existing secret) and create a new user in the horreum realm, a new team role (with -team suffix) and assign it to the user along with other appropriate predefined roles. Administrator credentials can be found using this:

NAME=$(oc get horreum -o jsonpath='{$.items[0].metadata.name}')
oc get secret $NAME-keycloak-admin -o json | \
    jq '{ user: .data.username | @base64d, password: .data.password | @base64d }'

For details of roles in Horreum please refer to user management.

Hyperfoil integration

For your convenience this operator creates also a config map (*-hyperfoil-upload) that can be used in Hyperfoil resource to upload Hyperfoil results to this instance - you can use it directly or merge that into another config map you use for post-hooks. However, it is necessary to define & mount a secret with these keys:

# Credentials of the user you've created in Keycloak
# Role for the team the user belongs to (something you've created)

oc create secret generic hyperfoil-horreum \
    --from-literal=HORREUM_USER=$HORREUM_USER \
    --from-literal=HORREUM_GROUP=$HORREUM_GROUP \

Then set it up in the hyperfoil resource:

apiVersion: hyperfoil.io/v1alpha1
kind: Hyperfoil
  name: example-hyperfoil
  namespace: hyperfoil
  # ...
  postHooks: example-horreum-hyperfoil-upload
  - hyperfoil-horreum

This operator automatically inserts a webhook to convert test results into Hyperfoil report; In order to link from test to report you have to add a schema (matching the URI used in your Hyperfoil version, usually something like http://hyperfoil.io/run-schema/0.8 and add it an extractor info with JSON path .info. Subsequently go to the test and add a view component with header ‘Report’, accessor you’ve created in the previous step and this rendering script (replacing the hostname):

(value, all) => {
  let info = JSON.parse(value);
  return '<a href="http://example-horreum-report-hyperfoil.apps.mycloud.example.com/' + all.id + '-' + info.id +'-' + info.benchmark + '.html" target=_blank>Show</a>'
