ISD Architecture


The figure below depicts the component view of the ISD architecture. As mentioned earlier, it consists of two modules, Orchestration and the Data & Intelligence module.

ISD Services

ISD consists of the following services.

  1. Autopilot = Verification service

  2. SAPOR = Connect with Spinnaker and git/S3 Repo for updating dynamic accounts

  3. Visibility = Implementation of approval service

  4. Dashboard = Collate data for graphical presentation of applications and pipelines

  5. OES-Gate = Authentication gateway

  6. Sapor-gate = OPTIONAL: spin-gate with basic-auth for Sapor communication

  7. Controller = OPTIONAL: remote deployments (Not shown in the Schematic below)

  8. OES-UI = Serves the UI elements (Not shown in the Schematic below)

These services also use two databases:

  1. OES-db : Postgres DB customized for OES

  2. OES-redis : Used by OES-gate

Apart from these, OES includes all the Spinnaker components, configured in HA mode. Spinnaker services functional roles are as follows:

  • Deck (GUI)

  • Gate (API)

  • Clouddriver (Deployments)

  • Orca (Orchestrator)

  • Echo (Notifications)

  • Front50 (DB Frontend)

  • Redis (Execution cache)

Key communication paths in the ISD:

  1. SAPOR Service communicates with the Spinnaker Gateway and makes API calls to retrieve data, update pipelines, etc.

  2. SAPOR can also be configured to use Sapor-gate which uses Basic Authentication. This is useful in cases where Spinnaker is configured with 2-factor authentication.

  3. Application is designed based on API-gateway architecture. All data from the web-browser goes through:

    • OES-gate or

    • Spin-gate


ISD requires 5 ingress points:

  1. Spinnaker UI : spin-deck service on port 9000

  2. Spinnaker Gate: spin-gate service on port 8084

  3. OES UI: OES-UI service on port 8080

  4. OES gate: OES-API service on port 8084

  5. Controller: For an agent to contact the controller, we need an ingress/LB. Note that TLS + gRPC traffic needs to be routed to the controller, shown in red.
