Additional Volumes and Volume Mounts

The Appian operator and Appian custom resource definition (CRD) allow specifying additional volumes and volume mounts for Appian pods and their containers via the .spec.[COMPONENT].additionalVolumes and .spec.[COMPONENT].additionalVolumeMounts fields on Appian custom resources. One use for additional volumes and volume mounts is to customize application logging.
