Prepare Model Tool

The Prepare Model Tool prepares WDT model files for deploying to specific target environments. These customizations include:

  • Removing sections from the model that are not compatible with the environment
  • Replacing credential and attribute values with WDT macros
  • Generating a UNIX shell script that will help with creating any required Kubernetes secrets
  • Generating a variable properties file to customize attribute values
  • Generating any additional configuration files to configure the target environment
  • Updating the model file(s)

To use the Prepare Model Tool, simply run the prepareModel shell script with the correct arguments. To see the list of valid arguments, simply run the shell script with the -help option (or with no arguments) for usage information.

For example, to prepare model files for use with WebLogic Kubernetes Operator, run the tool with -target wko as follows:

$ $WLSDEPLOY_HOME/bin/ -oracle_home /u01/wls12213 -model_file model1.yaml, model2.yaml -target wko -output_dir $HOME/wko-output

In the output directory, you will find:


You can then customize the and to provide environment-specific values.
