The configuration repository, created using cookiecutter needs to be synchronized regularly with to obtain any updates.

cfg-generics contains in particular the directory environments/manager, which is needed to initially build the manager node, and is updated on a regular basis.

If there are errors when rebuilding an environment, such as a missing Ansible role, you should first try synchronizing before time-consuming debugging.

The value for MANAGER_VERSION is stored in environments/manager/configuration.yml in the osism_manager_version parameter.

Synchronization has to be performed when updating to a new version. In this case, MANAGER_VERSION will be set to the new version.

The following commands are executed within the root directory of the configuration repository.

virtualenv -p python3 .venv
source .venv/bin/activate
pip install -r requirements.txt
MANAGER_VERSION=2019.3.0 gilt overlay

After synchronization, check for changes in the configuration repository.

git status

If there are any changes, review and commit them.
