Zora Helm Chart

Version: 0.9.2 Type: application AppVersion: v0.9.2

A multi-plugin solution that reports misconfigurations and vulnerabilities by scanning your cluster at scheduled times.

Installing the Chart

To install the chart with the release name zora in zora-system namespace:

helm repo add undistro --force-update
helm repo update undistro
helm upgrade --install zora undistro/zora \
  -n zora-system \
  --version 0.9.2 \
  --create-namespace \
  --wait \
  --set clusterName="$(kubectl config current-context)"

These commands deploy Zora on the Kubernetes cluster with the default configuration.

The Parameters section lists the available parameters that can be configured during installation.


  • List all charts available in undistro repo using helm search repo undistro

  • Update undistro chart repository using helm repo update undistro

  • List all versions available of undistro/zora chart using helm search repo undistro/zora --versions

  • List all releases in a specific namespace using helm list -n zora-system

  • Get the notes provided by zora release using helm get notes zora -n zora-system

Uninstalling the Chart

To uninstall/delete the zora release:

helm uninstall zora -n zora-system

The command removes all the Kubernetes components associated with the chart and deletes the release.


The following table lists the configurable parameters of the Zora chart and their default values.

Specify each parameter using the --set key=value[,key=value] argument to helm install. For example,

helm install zora \
  --set operator.resources.limits.memory=256Mi undistro/zora

Alternatively, a YAML file that specifies the values for the parameters can be provided while installing the chart. For example,

helm install zora -f values.yaml undistro/zora

Tip: You can use the default values.yaml
