Can be used to override the deployed dependent images for development. Options are veleroImageFqin, awsPluginImageFqin, openshiftPluginImageFqin, azurePluginImageFqin, gcpPluginImageFqin, csiPluginImageFqin, dataMoverImageFqin, resticRestoreImageFqin, kubevirtPluginImageFqin, and operator-type.

podAnnotations

map [ string ] string

Used to add annotations to pods deployed by Operators.

podDnsPolicy
