Release Notes

Run helm repo update before upgrading the chart to the latest version.

Airflow Helm Chart 1.12.0 (2024-02-11)

Significant Changes

The version of bitnami/postgresql subchart upgraded from 12.10.0 to 13.2.24. The version of PostgreSQL binaries upgraded from 11 to 16.1.0.

The change requires existing bitnami/postgresql subchart users to perform manual major version upgrade using pg_dumpall or pg_upgrade.

As a reminder, it is recommended to set up an external database in production.

Airflow Helm Chart 1.11.0 (2023-10-02)

Significant Changes

Support naming customization on helm chart resources, some resources may be renamed during upgrade (#31066)

This is a new opt-in switch useStandardNaming, for backwards compatibility, to leverage the standard naming convention, which allows full use of fullnameOverride and nameOverride in all resources.

The following resources will be renamed using default of useStandardNaming=false when upgrading to 1.11.0 or a higher version.

  • ConfigMap {release}-airflow-config to {release}-config

  • Secret {release}-airflow-metadata to {release}-metadata

  • Secret {release}-airflow-result-backend to {release}-result-backend

  • Ingress {release}-airflow-ingress to {release}-ingress

For existing installations, all your resources will be recreated with a new name and Helm will delete the previous resources.

This won’t delete existing PVCs for logs used by StatefulSet/Deployments, but it will recreate them with brand new PVCs. If you do want to preserve logs history you’ll need to manually copy the data of these volumes into the new volumes after deployment. Depending on what storage backend/class you’re using this procedure may vary. If you don’t mind starting with fresh logs/redis volumes, you can just delete the old PVCs that will be names, for example:

kubectl delete pvc -n airflow logs-gta-triggerer-0
kubectl delete pvc -n airflow logs-gta-worker-0
kubectl delete pvc -n airflow redis-db-gta-redis-0

If you do not change useStandardNaming or fullnameOverride after upgrade, you can proceed as usual and no unexpected behaviours will be presented.

Airflow Helm Chart 1.8.0 (2023-02-06)

Significant Changes

bitnami/postgresql subchart updated to 12.1.9 (#29071)

The version of postgresql installed is still version 11.

If you are upgrading an existing helm release with the built-in postgres database, you will either need to delete your release and reinstall fresh, or manually delete these 2 objects:

kubectl delete secret {RELEASE_NAME}-postgresql
kubectl delete statefulset {RELEASE_NAME}-postgresql

As a reminder, it is recommended to set up an external database in production.

This version of the chart uses different variable names for setting usernames and passwords in the postgres database.

  • postgresql.auth.enablePostgresUser is used to determine if the “postgres” admin account will be created.

  • postgresql.auth.postgresPassword sets the password for the “postgres” user.

  • postgresql.auth.username and postrgesql.auth.password are used to set credentials for a non-admin account if desired.

  • postgresql.postgresqlUsername and postgresql.postresqlPassword, which were used in the previous version of the chart, are no longer used.

Users will need to make those changes in their values files if they are changing the Postgres configuration.

Previously the subchart version was 10.5.3.

Default dags.gitSync.wait reduced to 5 seconds (#27625)

The default for dags.gitSync.wait has been reduced from 60 seconds to 5 seconds to reduce the likelihood of DAGs becoming inconsistent between Airflow components. This will, however, increase traffic to the remote git repository.

Default Airflow image is updated to 2.5.1 (#29074)

The default Airflow image that is used with the Chart is now 2.5.1, previously it was 2.4.1.

Default git-sync image is updated to 3.6.3 (#27848)

The default git-sync image that is used with the Chart is now 3.6.3, previously it was 3.4.0.

The default Airflow image that is used with the Chart is now 2.2.4, previously it was 2.2.3.

Significant changes

Default Airflow image is updated to 2.2.3

The default Airflow image that is used with the Chart is now 2.2.3, previously it was 2.2.1.

ingress.web.hosts and ingress.flower.hosts parameters data type has changed and ingress.web.tls and ingress.flower.tls have moved

ingress.web.hosts and ingress.flower.hosts have had their types have been changed from an array of strings to an array of objects. ingress.web.tls and ingress.flower.tls can now be specified per host in ingress.web.hosts and ingress.flower.hosts respectively.

The old parameter names will continue to work, however support for them will be removed in a future release so please update your values file.

Fixed precedence of nodeSelector, affinity and tolerations params

nodeSelector, affinity and tolerations params precedence has been fixed on all components. Now component-specific params (e.g. webserver.affinity) takes precedence over the global param (e.g. affinity).

Default KubernetesExecutor worker affinity removed

Previously a default affinity was added to KubernetesExecutor workers to spread the workers out across nodes. This default affinity is no longer set because, in general, there is no reason to spread task-specific workers across nodes.

Changes in webserver and flower NetworkPolicy default ports

The defaults for webserver.networkPolicy.ingress.ports and flower.networkPolicy.ingress.ports moved away from using named ports to numerical ports to avoid issues with OpenShift.

Airflow Helm Chart 1.2.0 (2021-09-28)

Significant Changes and parameters have been renamed and data type changed and parameters have been renamed to ingress.web.hosts and ingress.flower.hosts, respectively. Their types have been changed from a string to an array of strings.

The old parameter names will continue to work, however support for them will be removed in a future release so please update your values file.

Default Airflow version is updated to 2.1.4

The default Airflow version that is installed with the Chart is now 2.1.4, previously it was 2.1.2.

Removed ingress.flower.precedingPaths and ingress.flower.succeedingPaths parameters

ingress.flower.precedingPaths and ingress.flower.succeedingPaths parameters have been removed as they had previously had no effect on rendered YAML output.

Change of default path on Ingress

With the move to support the stable Kubernetes Ingress API the default path has been changed from being unset to /. For most Ingress controllers this should not change the behavior of the resulting Ingress resource.

Airflow Helm Chart 1.1.0 (2021-07-26)

Significant Changes

Run helm repo update before upgrading the chart to the latest version.

Default Airflow version is updated to 2.1.2

The default Airflow version that is installed with the Chart is now 2.1.2, previously it was 2.0.2.

Helm 2 no longer supported

This chart has dropped support for Helm 2 as it has been deprecated and no longer receiving security updates since November 2020.

webserver.extraNetworkPolicies and flower.extraNetworkPolicies parameters have been renamed

webserver.extraNetworkPolicies and flower.extraNetworkPolicies have been renamed to webserver.networkPolicy.ingress.from and flower.networkPolicy.ingress.from, respectively. Their values and behavior are the same.

The old parameter names will continue to work, however support for them will be removed in a future release so please update your values file.

Removed dags.gitSync.root, dags.gitSync.dest, and dags.gitSync.excludeWebserver parameters

The dags.gitSync.root and dags.gitSync.dest parameters did not provide any useful behaviors to chart users so they have been removed. If you have them set in your values file you can safely remove them.

The dags.gitSync.excludeWebserver parameter was mistakenly included in the charts values.schema.json. If you have it set in your values file, you can safely remove it.

nodeSelector, affinity and tolerations on migrateDatabaseJob and createUserJob jobs

The migrateDatabaseJob and createUserJob jobs were incorrectly using the webserver’s nodeSelector, affinity and tolerations (if set). Each job is now configured separately.
