1. Deploy the tyk-dashboard helm chart on AWS EKS


    To deploy the Tyk Dashboard using a Helm chart on an AWS EKS cluster with Pulumi, we'll need to accomplish the following steps:

    1. Provision an Amazon EKS cluster.
    2. Deploy the Tyk Dashboard Helm chart to the EKS cluster.

    Let's walk through the process:

    Step 1: Provision an Amazon EKS Cluster

    First, we'll use the eks.Cluster component from Pulumi's EKS package to easily provision a new EKS cluster. This high-level component creates and manages the necessary resources, such as the EKS cluster itself and the supporting compute infrastructure.

    Step 2: Deploy Tyk Dashboard

    Once we have our EKS cluster ready, we can use the kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart resource from Pulumi's Kubernetes package to deploy the Tyk Dashboard Helm chart. The Chart resource allows us to deploy packaged applications to Kubernetes.

    Here's the TypeScript program for deploying the Tyk Dashboard to an EKS cluster:

    import * as pulumi from '@pulumi/pulumi'; import * as awsx from '@pulumi/awsx'; import * as eks from '@pulumi/eks'; import * as k8s from '@pulumi/kubernetes'; // Step 1: Create an EKS cluster const cluster = new eks.Cluster('my-cluster', { // Define your cluster settings here... // For example, you can specify the number of nodes, node type, etc. }); // Export the cluster Kubeconfig export const kubeconfig = cluster.kubeconfig; // Step 2: Deploy Tyk Dashboard Helm chart const tykDashboardChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart('tyk-dashboard', { chart: 'tyk-dashboard', version: 'x.y.z', // specify the exact chart version fetchOpts: { repo: 'https://helm.tyk.io/public/helm/charts/', // depending on the actual Helm repository }, // Define values for the chart as needed values: { // For example, set the service type to LoadBalancer for external access service: { type: 'LoadBalancer', }, // Include any other necessary configurations here }, }, { provider: cluster.provider }); // Export the Tyk Dashboard URL (Ensure the LoadBalancer is fully provisioned before accessing) export const tykDashboardUrl = tykDashboardChart.getResourceProperty( 'v1/Service', 'tyk-dashboard-tyk-dashboard', 'status' ).apply(status => `http://${status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].hostname}`); // Run `pulumi up` to deploy the stack. // Access your Tyk Dashboard using the URL provided after deployment.

    In this program:

    • We create an EKS cluster using the eks.Cluster component, which is a high-level abstraction that encapsulates the details of provisioning an EKS cluster.
    • We then deploy the Tyk Dashboard using the kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart resource, specifying the particular chart version and repository URL.
    • The service type is set to LoadBalancer to expose the Tyk Dashboard externally. Modify the values based on the actual configuration you may need for your deployment.
    • We export the cluster kubeconfig for use by kubectl and other tooling outside of Pulumi.
    • We also export a URL which will be populated once the Tyk Dashboard is accessible. This is retrieved dynamically by querying the status of the deployed Service.

    Remember to replace x.y.z with the actual chart version you want to deploy. You may also need to adjust the values to match your exact requirements, such as domain name, persistence settings, etc.

    Please note that, due to DNS propagation and LoadBalancer provisioning times, the URL may not be immediately accessible after the deployment finishes.

    Before running pulumi up with the above program, ensure you have Pulumi installed and configured to access your AWS account. Please refer to the EKS documentation and Kubernetes Helm documentation for detailed information on the resources utilized here.
