Tasks and Pipelines

Building Blocks of Tekton CI/CD Workflow

Tekton Pipelines

Tekton Pipelines is a Kubernetes extension that installs and runs on your Kubernetes cluster. It defines a set of Kubernetes Custom Resources that act as building blocks from which you can assemble CI/CD pipelines. Once installed, Tekton Pipelines becomes available via the Kubernetes CLI (kubectl) and via API calls, just like pods and other resources. Tekton is open-source and part of the CD Foundation, a Linux Foundation project.

Tekton Pipelines entities

Tekton Pipelines defines the following entities:

Entity Description
Task Defines a series of steps which launch specific build or delivery tools that ingest specific inputs and produce specific outputs.
TaskRun Instantiates a Task for execution with specific inputs, outputs, and execution parameters. Can be invoked on its own or as part of a Pipeline.
Pipeline Defines a series of Tasks that accomplish a specific build or delivery goal. Can be triggered by an event or invoked from a PipelineRun.
PipelineRun Instantiates a Pipeline for execution with specific inputs, outputs, and execution parameters.
PipelineResource (Deprecated) Defines locations for inputs ingested and outputs produced by the steps in Tasks.
Run (alpha) Instantiates a Custom Task for execution when specific inputs.
