1. Deploy the standard-service helm chart on Opensshift


    To deploy a Helm chart on an OpenShift cluster using Pulumi, you will use the @pulumi/kubernetes package which provides resources for managing Kubernetes resources, including Helm charts. OpenShift is a Kubernetes distribution, and so Pulumi works with OpenShift in much the same way it does with Kubernetes.

    In this program, I assume that you have an existing OpenShift cluster and the kubeconfig file to authenticate to your cluster is correctly set up in your environment. Pulumi uses this file to connect to your OpenShift cluster.

    You will be deploying the standard-service Helm chart. Depending on the Helm chart you want to deploy, you may need to provide additional configuration parameters specific to the Helm chart's requirements. The values object in our program will be the place to include such configurations.

    Below, I provide you with a Pulumi TypeScript program that defines a Helm chart resource to be deployed on an OpenShift cluster. Remember to install the Pulumi CLI and configure it for use with your OpenShift cluster beforehand.

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Define the Helm chart release. This example assumes `standard-service` is a chart that // exists in a reachable Helm chart repository. Replace `repo` with the URL of the chart repository // and `version` with the chart version you wish to deploy. const standardServiceChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("standard-service", { chart: "standard-service", version: "1.2.3", // Replace with the target version of your chart namespace: "default", // Specify the namespace to deploy into, if not 'default' fetchOpts: { repo: "http://charts.myorg.com/", // Replace with the URL to the chart repository }, // If your chart requires specific values, you can include them as below. values: { // Replace these with the actual configuration values required by your chart. serviceType: "ClusterIP", replicaCount: 3, // ... add other configuration options as needed }, }); // Export the URL for the service once it is ready. export const serviceUrl = standardServiceChart.getResourceProperty( "v1/Service", "standard-service", "status" ).apply(status => status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].ip);

    In this program:

    • We import the Pulumi Kubernetes SDK.
    • We create a new instance of Chart which Pulumi understands to be a Helm chart.
    • The chart property points to the name of the chart you wish to deploy.
    • The version and repo properties are defined to point to the specific version of the Helm chart and its repository URL, which you will need to replace with the actual values.
    • We define a values object to hold any configuration values your chart requires. Replace the placeholders with the actual values needed by the standard-service chart.
    • Lastly, we use the getResourceProperty method to export the service URL, which assumes the chart exposes a service with an external IP.

    This code snippet assumes the Helm chart and values are correct and that the Helm chart exposes a service with a load balancer to provide an IP address. Make sure to replace placeholders with actual values from the standard-service Helm chart you're planning to deploy.

    After writing this Pulumi program, you would run pulumi up in your CLI to deploy it to your OpenShift cluster.
