1. Deploy the splunk-operator helm chart on Opensshift


    To deploy the splunk-operator Helm chart on an OpenShift cluster using Pulumi, we can use the kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart resource. This resource allows us to deploy Helm charts from within a Pulumi program.

    Here's how you can deploy the splunk-operator Helm chart using Pulumi with TypeScript:

    1. Set up your OpenShift cluster and ensure you have kubectl access to it.
    2. Ensure that Helm and Pulumi are installed on your local machine.
    3. Create a new Pulumi project, if you haven't already.
    4. Write the following Pulumi code in your index.ts file.

    Let's go through the steps in the TypeScript program:

    • First, we import the @pulumi/kubernetes package which is needed to interact with Kubernetes resources, including deploying Helm charts.
    • We then use the Chart class to deploy the splunk-operator from its Helm repository.
    • We need to specify the chart and repo details; in this case, we're assuming splunk-operator is the name of the chart and it's available in a Helm repository that you provide.
    • We set the namespace to the namespace where you want to deploy the splunk-operator.
    • The values field can be used to override the default values in the splunk-operator chart, for example setting specific configuration parameters required for your OpenShift environment.
    import * as kubernetes from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Create an instance of the Helm chart to deploy. // You'll need to provide the appropriate Helm repository URL and version. const splunkOperatorChart = new kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart("splunk-operator", { chart: "splunk-operator", // Normally you'd specify the Helm repository where the chart is located using the `repo` property. // You might also specify the version of the chart to ensure you're using a specific release. version: "<CHART_VERSION>", // replace with the chart version repositoryOpts: { repo: "<HELM_REPO_URL>", // replace with the Helm repository URL }, namespace: "default", // replace with the namespace you want to deploy to // values: {} // You can specify any custom values here. }); export const chartName = splunkOperatorChart.metadata.name;

    In the above code:

    • Replace <CHART_VERSION> with the specific version number of the splunk-operator Helm chart you want to deploy.
    • Replace <HELM_REPO_URL> with the URL of the Helm repository that contains the splunk-operator chart.

    You'll need to replace the placeholder values with actual values that correspond to your deployment.

    To run this Pulumi program:

    1. Execute pulumi up in your command line from the root directory of your Pulumi project. Pulumi will perform a preview of the changes and request your confirmation before applying them to your OpenShift cluster.
    2. Confirm the deployment, and Pulumi will start deploying the Helm chart to your cluster.
