Templates YAML


This functionality was originally offered by the parent company as a separate product Fathomable. It is undergoing consolidation into Cyvive's core and is restricted to beta customers at this time. Please contact your account manager via live-chat should you wish to participate.


  • Scope: deploymentTarget
  • File: *.template.yaml


… core component of the Universal MicroServices Language. This file describes the template's available for deploymentTarget to be created from. Its the highest level of inheritance for governance and configuration when deploying a collection of Micro/NanoServices into a deploymentTarget. Specified items are inherited as low priority defaults unless overriden.

Cyvive's configuration language is architecturally and contexturally derived from partnership with 3 Universities and over 35 industry publications for providing a governance via policy meta-model that agnostically interfaces with the most complex orchestration technology while articulately able to be used in conversation.

This file is a powerhouse behind agnostic infrastructure, and provides the most simple abstraction of deployment available today.

Template Technology Descriptors

… are logically grouped into four meta-categories, and while the individual template can have any name assigned to it, the template must belong to a meta-category. Where each meta-catagory is based on the following operatingEnvironment logical progression: developmenthigh availability developmentperformanceproduction

Default Template Names

dev (type: development) - single container availability - minimum resource allocation - probes: - ready ha (type: high availability development) - dual container availability - minimum resource allocation - probes: - ready perf (type: performance) - dual container availability - maximum resource allocation - probes: - ready - health prod (type: production) - high availability - horizonal autoscaling - maximum resource allocation - probes: - ready - health

template type selection is controlled via the operatingEnvironment field. The following states select the operatingEnvironment: - [] @ dev (default) - ['DEVLIKE'] @ dev (alterantive for direct specification) - ['HALIKE'] @ ha - ['PRODLIKE'] @ prod - ['HALIKE', 'PRODLIKE'] @ perf

This approach enables any number of copies or versions of deploymentTarget to be deployed or updated with identical or slightly varied configuration. Additionally as the governance process is version aware, multiple versions of the Micro/NanoService can co-exist in the same deploymentTarget provides this default set of Template Technology Descriptors not to enforce direction on organisations but to assist with rapid adoption and integration with existing processes. The default Templates cover all operatingEnvironment types that an organization would utilize in developing and promoting an Micro/NanoService through its Continuous Delivery / Deployment lifecycle. While isolating and adding the infrastructure complexities step by step to assist with narrowing debugging focus.

When creating a deploymentTarget will deploy in parallel constrained by priority order all Micro/NanoServices relying on the container orchestration technology to confirm that each Micro/NanoService has started correctly. Should a service fail to start the failure will be reported back, otherwise a sucess response will be recieved.

Root Structure


As mentioned previously any custom name can be used for a template except mandatory as its a reserved operatingEnvironment: All information populated in this key will be deployed into all deploymentTarget's

Should mandatory be used, it follows the same structure as's Micro/NanoService with the exception of groups as the mandatory key replaces the group key. As such the dedicated group configuration is also unavailable for mandatory

Template Technology Descriptor


'⇛' character is used throughout this documentation where items are mandatory with respect to the parent YAML key. If not specified, then item is optional.

⇛ operatingEnvironment: []
  resource: {}
