Using certmanager-issuer for CertManager Issuer creation

This chart is a helper for Jetstack’s CertManager Helm chart. It automatically provisions an Issuer object, used by CertManager when requesting TLS certificates for GitLab Ingresses.


We describe all the major sections of the configuration below. When configuring from the parent chart, these values are:

  # Configure an ACME Issuer in cert-manager. Only used if global.ingress.configureCertmanager is true.

  # Provide an email to associate with your TLS certificates
  # email:

    create: true

      cpu: 50m

  # Priority class assigned to pods
  priorityClassName: ""

    labels: {}
