xj-template-action-binding.yaml
apiVersion: camel.apache.org/v1alpha1
kind: KameletBinding
metadata:
  name: xj-template-action-binding
spec:
  source:
    ref:
      kind: Kamelet
      apiVersion: camel.apache.org/v1alpha1
      name: timer-source
    properties:
      message: "Hello"
  steps:
  - ref:
      kind: Kamelet
      apiVersion: camel.apache.org/v1alpha1

    properties:
      direction: "The Direction"
      template: "The Template"
  sink:
    ref:
      kind: Channel
      apiVersion: messaging.knative.dev/v1
      name: mychannel

Prerequisite

You have Camel K installed on the cluster.

Procedure for using the cluster CLI

  1. Save the xj-template-action-binding.yaml file to your local drive, and then edit it as needed for your configuration.

  2. Run the action by using the following command:

    kubectl apply -f xj-template-action-binding.yaml

Procedure for using the Kamel CLI

Configure and run the action by using the following command:

kamel bind timer-source?message=Hello --step xj-template-action -p "step-0.direction=The Direction" -p "step-0.template=The Template" channel:mychannel

This command creates the KameletBinding in the current namespace on the cluster.
