1. Deploy the bgmf helm chart on Opensshift


    To deploy a Helm chart on OpenShift using Pulumi, you will need to perform a few steps:

    1. Set up your Pulumi project and correctly configure access to your OpenShift cluster.
    2. Use the @pulumi/kubernetes package to interact with Kubernetes resources, such as Helm charts.
    3. Define the Helm chart settings like chart name, version, repository, and any custom values you want to apply to the chart within the Pulumi program.

    Below is a Pulumi program written in TypeScript that demonstrates these steps. The program assumes that you have already configured kubectl to point to your OpenShift cluster, and Pulumi will use this configuration to interact with your cluster.

    Firstly, I'll explain each part of the Pulumi program:

    • Chart Resource: This is a Kubernetes/Helm resource which points to the Helm chart that you want to deploy. In this case, "bgmf" would be the chart's name you are referring to.
    • Namespace: The namespace on your OpenShift cluster where you want to deploy the Helm chart.
    • Repository: The Helm chart repository URL where the chart is located.
    • Values: These are optional and represent any customization you want to apply to the default chart values.

    Here's a TypeScript program for your requirement:

    import * as pulumi from '@pulumi/pulumi'; import * as k8s from '@pulumi/kubernetes'; // You need to replace 'CHART_VERSION' with the version of the bgmf chart you wish to deploy. const chartVersion = 'CHART_VERSION'; // Replace 'NAMESPACE' with the name of your target namespace (e.g., 'bgmf-namespace'). const namespace = 'NAMESPACE'; // Replace 'HELM_REPO_URL' with the URL where your Helm chart is hosted (e.g., 'https://charts.example.com/'). const repo = 'HELM_REPO_URL'; // Instantiate the Helm chart. const bgmfChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart('bgmf', { chart: 'bgmf', version: chartVersion, namespace: namespace, fetchOpts: { repo: repo, }, // Specify custom values for the Helm chart variables if necessary. // values: { ... } }); // Export the base URL for the bgmf service assuming it creates a LoadBalancer service. // You'll need to modify this if a different type of service is used (e.g., ClusterIP or NodePort). export const bgmfUrl = bgmfChart.getResourceProperty('v1/Service', 'bgmf', 'status') .apply(status => status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].hostname);

    In this program:

    • We import the necessary modules from the @pulumi/pulumi and @pulumi/kubernetes packages.
    • A new Helm chart instance is created using new k8s.helm.v3.Chart.
    • Properties of the Helm chart are set, including the chart name, namespace, and repository where the Helm chart is located.
    • If you wish to override the default values of the Helm chart, you can do that by providing a values object.
    • Finally, we are exporting the bgmfUrl, which should give the URL at which the bgmf service will be accessible. This line assumes your Helm chart creates a service of type LoadBalancer. If your Helm chart uses a different service type or you need to access different resources, you will need to adjust this part accordingly.

    In order to run this Pulumi program, you need to:

    1. Install Pulumi and set up the Pulumi CLI.
    2. Configure access to your OpenShift cluster.
    3. Run pulumi up in the directory where this program is located to deploy the Helm chart to your OpenShift cluster.

    Remember to replace the placeholders (CHART_VERSION, NAMESPACE, and HELM_REPO_URL) with actual values for your specific setup.

    Once the pulumi up command is executed, Pulumi will perform the deployment, and you should be able to see details of the deployment process and its outcome on the terminal. If everything is configured correctly, the Helm chart should be deployed to your OpenShift cluster, and you can then proceed to verify its functionality via the OpenShift console or CLI tools such as oc and kubectl.
