Chart: Sysdig Stackdriver Bridge

Sysdig Stackdriver Bridge is an extension of the Sysdig tool that reads audit logs from Stackdriver, reformats them to match the Kubernetes-native format, and sends the logs to a configurable webhook and to the Sysdig agent service.


This chart adds the Sysdig Stackdriver Bridge application into a cluster using a simple Deployment with a ConfigMap.


Installing the Chart

To install the chart with the release name my-release, run:

$ helm repo add sysdiglabs

to add the sysdiglabs Helm chart repository. Then run:

$ helm install --name my-release sysdiglabs/sysdig-stackdriver-bridge

When done, the application should be running within your cluster if properly configured.

Tip: List all releases using helm list

Uninstalling the Chart

To uninstall/delete the my-release deployment:

$ helm delete my-release

Tip: Use helm delete –purge my-release to completely remove the release from Helm internal storage

The command removes all the Kubernetes components associated with the chart and deletes the release.


The following table lists the configurable parameters of the Sysdig Stackdriver Bridge chart and their default values.

Parameter Description Default
image.repository Image to use with Stackdriver bridge application. sysdiglabs/stackdriver-webhook-bridge
image.pullPolicy Image pull policy. IfNotPresent
image.tag Image tag to pull. v0.0.5
settings.forwardURL The destination for converted audit events. http://sysdig-agent.sysdig-agent.svc.cluster.local:7765/k8s_audit
settings.projectID Read Stackdriver logs from this project id. If blank, the bridge will use the metadata service to find the project id. nil
settings.clusterID Read Stackdriver logs for this GKE cluster. If blank, the bridge will use the metadata service to find the cluster name. nil
settings.logFile If provided, also write all log entries to this file. nil
settings.outFile If provided, write all converted k8s audit events to this file. nil
settings.pollInterval Poll interval for new Stackdriver log messages. 5s
settings.lagInterval When reading Stackdriver log messages, read this many seconds behind “now” when reading. 30s
settings.logLevel Log level. info
secret.create If set to true, the chart will generate a Secret that matches the value of bridge.secretName. false This will set the value key.json in the created Secret. Contents of the GCP IAM Service Account that was created for Sysdig to access Stackbridge. nil Name of the Secret that contains the json data for the GCP IAM account for use with the Stackdriver bridge application. stackdriver-webhook-bridge
nodeSelector Node labels for pod assignment {}
affinity Affinity settings for pod assignment {}
annotations Pod annotations {}
tolerations Toleration labels for pod assignment []

Specify each parameter using the --set key=value[,key=value] argument to helm install. For example,

$ helm install --name my-release \
    --set bridge.forwardURL=FOO,bridge.pollInterval=60s \

Alternatively, a YAML file that specifies the values for the parameters can be provided while installing the chart. For example:

$ helm install --name my-release -f values.yaml sysdiglabs/sysdig-stackdriver-bridge

Tip: You can use the default values.yaml
