Supported datasources

This manager supports extracting the following datasources: helm.

Default config

  "registryAliases": {
    "stable": ""
  "commitMessageTopic": "helm chart {{depName}}",
  "fileMatch": [

Additional Information

Renovate supports updating Helm Chart references within requirements.yaml files.

The helm-requirements manager defines this default registryAlias:

  "registryAliases": {
    "stable": ""

If your Helm charts make use of repository aliases then you will need to configure an registryAliases object in your config to tell Renovate where to look for them. Be aware that alias values must be properly formatted URIs.

If you need to change the versioning format, read the versioning documentation to learn more.
