Installing Helm Chart from sources¶
This page describes downloading and verifying
Apache Airflow Official Helm Chart version
1.8.0 using officially released source packages. You can also install the chart
directly from the
airflow.apache.org repo as described in
Installing the chart.
You can choose different version of the chart by selecting different version from the drop-down at
the top-left of the page.
The sources and packages released are the “official” sources of installation that you can use if you want to verify the origin of the packages and want to verify checksums and signatures of the packages. The packages are available via the Official Apache Software Foundations Downloads
The downloads are available at:
If you want to install from the source code, you can download from the sources link above, it will contain
INSTALL file containing details on how you can build and install the chart.
It is essential that you verify the integrity of the downloaded files using the PGP or SHA signatures. The PGP signatures can be verified using GPG or PGP. Please download the KEYS as well as the asc signature files for relevant distribution. It is recommended to get these files from the main distribution directory and not from the mirrors.
gpg -i KEYS
pgpk -a KEYS
pgp -ka KEYS
To verify the binaries/sources you can download the relevant asc files for it from main distribution directory and follow the below guide.
gpg --verify airflow-********.asc airflow-*********
$ gpg --verify airflow-1.8.0.tgz.asc airflow-1.8.0.tgz gpg: Signature made Sat 11 Sep 12:49:54 2021 BST gpg: using RSA key CDE15C6E4D3A8EC4ECF4BA4B6674E08AD7DE406F gpg: issuer "firstname.lastname@example.org" gpg: Good signature from "Kaxil Naik <email@example.com>" [unknown] gpg: aka "Kaxil Naik <firstname.lastname@example.org>" [unknown] gpg: WARNING: The key's User ID is not certified with a trusted signature! gpg: There is no indication that the signature belongs to the owner. Primary key fingerprint: CDE1 5C6E 4D3A 8EC4 ECF4 BA4B 6674 E08A D7DE 406F
The “Good signature from …” is indication that the signatures are correct.
Do not worry about the “not certified with a trusted signature” warning. Most of the certificates used
by release managers are self signed, that’s why you get this warning. By importing the server in the
previous step and importing it via ID from
KEYS page, you know that this is a valid Key already.
For SHA512 sum check, download the relevant
sha512 and run the following:
shasum -a 512 airflow-******** | diff - airflow-********.sha512
SHASUM of the file should match the one provided in
shasum -a 512 airflow-1.8.0.tgz | diff - airflow-1.8.0.tgz.sha512
