1. Deploy the ibm-mqadvanced-server-dev helm chart on Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)


    To deploy the ibm-mqadvanced-server-dev Helm chart on Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), you will follow several steps using Pulumi with TypeScript. First, you will need to create an AKS cluster using Pulumi. Next, you will use the Pulumi Kubernetes provider to deploy the Helm chart to your AKS cluster.

    Here is a high-level overview of the required steps:

    1. Set up Azure Provider: We start by configuring the Pulumi Azure Provider so that we can create resources in Azure.

    2. Create a Resource Group: Resource groups are containers that hold related resources for an Azure solution.

    3. Create an AKS Cluster: We create an AKS cluster within the resource group. This cluster will be the Kubernetes environment where your ibm-mqadvanced-server-dev application will run.

    4. Configure Kubernetes Provider: Once the cluster is created, we need to configure the Kubernetes Provider with the appropriate kubeconfig that allows Pulumi to deploy resources into the Kubernetes cluster.

    5. Deploy IBM MQ Advanced Server Helm Chart: Finally, we deploy the ibm-mqadvanced-server-dev Helm chart using the Pulumi Kubernetes provider.

    Below is the detailed TypeScript program that performs these steps.

    import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; import * as azure from "@pulumi/azure"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Step 1: Set up the Azure Provider. const azureProvider = new azure.Provider("azure", { // Here, you would specify the version and any other provider-specific settings. }); // Step 2: Create a Resource Group. const resourceGroup = new azure.core.ResourceGroup("aksResourceGroup", {}, { provider: azureProvider }); // Step 3: Create an AKS cluster. const aksCluster = new azure.containerservice.KubernetesCluster("aksCluster", { resourceGroupName: resourceGroup.name, defaultNodePool: { name: "aksagentpool", nodeCount: 2, vmSize: "Standard_DS2_v2", }, dnsPrefix: "aksk8s", servicePrincipal: { clientId: azure.config.clientId, clientSecret: azure.config.clientSecret, }, }, { provider: azureProvider }); // Step 4: Configure Kubernetes provider. const k8sProvider = new k8s.Provider("k8sProvider", { kubeconfig: aksCluster.kubeConfigRaw, }); // Step 5: Deploy the ibm-mqadvanced-server-dev Helm Chart. const mqChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("ibm-mq", { chart: "ibm-mqadvanced-server-dev", version: "<CHART_VERSION>", // specify the version of the chart here // The repository where the Helm chart is located. You must configure it according to the chart's documentation. fetchOpts:{ repo: "https://<REPOSITORY_URL>", }, }, { provider: k8sProvider }); // Export the kubeconfig and cluster name which can be useful for accessing the Kubernetes cluster. export const kubeConfig = aksCluster.kubeConfigRaw; export const clusterName = aksCluster.name;

    Make sure you have the Helm chart version and repository URL to include in the chart configuration. Replace <CHART_VERSION> with the desired version number of your IBM MQ Helm chart and https://<REPOSITORY_URL> with the URL of the Helm chart repository.

    This program sets up the necessary Azure infrastructure and deploys the ibm-mqadvanced-server-dev Helm chart onto an AKS cluster. Once the Pulumi program runs successfully, it will output the kubeconfig which is necessary to interact with the AKS cluster using kubectl or other Kubernetes management tools. The cluster name is also exported for reference.

    To run this Pulumi program:

    1. Install Pulumi from Pulumi's website.
    2. Set up your Azure credentials as detailed in the Pulumi Azure setup page.
    3. Create a new directory for your Pulumi project, change into the new directory, and run pulumi new typescript to create a new TypeScript project.
    4. Replace the contents of index.ts with the code provided above.
    5. Run npm install to install the required Pulumi packages.
    6. Finally, execute pulumi up to create the resources and deploy the Helm chart.

    Remember, before running the pulumi up command, ensure that you replace <CHART_VERSION> and <REPOSITORY_URL> placeholders with valid values that correspond to the ibm-mqadvanced-server-dev Helm chart you intend to deploy.
