xj-template-action-pipe.yaml
apiVersion: camel.apache.org/v1
kind: Pipe
metadata:
  name: xj-template-action-pipe
spec:
  source:
    ref:
      kind: Kamelet
      apiVersion: camel.apache.org/v1
      name: kafka-source
      properties:
        bootstrapServers: localhost:9092
        topic: mytopic
        user: kafka
        password: kafka123!
  steps:
    - ref:
        kind: Kamelet
        apiVersion: camel.apache.org/v1
        name: xj-template-action
      properties:
        direction: The Direction

  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-pipe.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-pipe.yaml

Procedure for using the Kamel CLI

Configure and run the action by using the following command:

kamel bind xj-template-action -p "step-0.direction=The Direction" -p "step-0.template=\file:////template.vm" channel:mychannel

This command creates the Kamelet Pipe in the current namespace on the cluster.
