1. Deploy the ibm-connect-direct helm chart on Azure Managed Openshift Service


    To deploy the ibm-connect-direct Helm chart on an Azure Managed OpenShift Service using Pulumi, you'll first need to set up a Managed OpenShift Cluster on Azure. Once the cluster is ready, you can then proceed to install the Helm chart on the cluster.

    The following outline describes the steps involved in this deployment:

    1. Set up an Azure Managed OpenShift Cluster using the azure-native.containerservice.OpenShiftManagedCluster resource.
    2. Install a Helm chart on the cluster using the kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart resource, which allows you to deploy Helm charts in a Kubernetes cluster from a Pulumi program.

    Below is a Pulumi program written in TypeScript that will perform these steps. This program assumes that you have already logged into the Azure command-line interface, and have the necessary permissions to create and manage OpenShift clusters and to deploy applications via Helm.

    Detailed Step-by-Step Program

    import * as azure from "@pulumi/azure-native"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; // Step 1: Create an Azure Managed OpenShift Cluster const clusterName = "my-openshift-cluster"; const resourceGroupName = "myResourceGroup"; // Create a resource group if you don't have one already const resourceGroup = new azure.resources.ResourceGroup(resourceGroupName); const openshiftCluster = new azure.containerservice.OpenShiftManagedCluster(clusterName, { resourceName: clusterName, resourceGroupName: resourceGroup.name, location: resourceGroup.location, openShiftVersion: "4.3", // Specify the OpenShift version you wish to use // Cluster and profiles details go here. For example: networkProfile: { vnetCidr: "", }, masterPoolProfile: { // Required properties like count and vmSize should be specified here count: 3, vmSize: "Standard_D4s_v3", // Replace with the desired VM size }, // Authentication details, tags, and any other configuration should be provided here }, { dependsOn: [resourceGroup] }); // Step 2: Deploy the IBM Connect Direct Helm Chart // First, we need to set up a Kubernetes provider pointing to the created OpenShift Cluster const k8sProvider = new k8s.Provider("k8sProvider", { kubeconfig: openshiftCluster.config.kubeconfig.apply(kubeconfig => kubeconfig.raw), }); // Now, deploy the Helm chart into the OpenShift cluster const helmChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("ibm-connect-direct", { chart: "ibm-connect-direct", // Specify the chart version, if required // version: "<chart-version>", namespace: "default", // If the chart needs any specific values, provide them here // values: { ... }, }, { provider: k8sProvider }); // Stack exports // Export the cluster's kubeconfig and the service endpoint of the Helm release export const kubeConfig = openshiftCluster.config.kubeconfig; export const helmChartServiceEndpoint = helmChart.getResourceProperty( "v1/Service", "ibm-connect-direct", "status", ).apply(status => status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].ip);

    In this program:

    • We define a new Azure Managed OpenShift Cluster with some placeholders for the required properties, such as the number of master nodes (count) and the size of the master VMs (vmSize). These need to be set according to your own requirements and Azure's available VM sizes. You can also specify additional configurations as needed, such as the authentication profiles and tags.

    • We use the output property kubeconfig from the OpenShift Cluster to configure the Kubernetes provider. This allows us to interact with the OpenShift cluster using Kubernetes' API.

    • We then declare a Helm chart with the chart name ibm-connect-direct. Again, you'll need to provide any specific values that the Helm chart requires for a successful deployment. You also have the option to specify the version of the chart.

    • Finally, we export the kubeConfig so you can manage the cluster using the kubectl command-line tool outside of Pulumi if necessary, and the helmChartServiceEndpoint, which could be the IP address or DNS name of the service that exposes your Helm chart deployment.

    Please note that deploying the cluster and Helm chart may take some time. After running this Pulumi program, you should see the resources being created in the console output.

    Running the Program

    To run this Pulumi program:

    • Install Pulumi from Pulumi's official website.
    • Set up the Azure CLI and authenticate by running az login.
    • Create a new Pulumi project using pulumi new <template>, where <template> matches Azure's TypeScript template.
    • Replace the content of index.ts with the above TypeScript program.
    • Run pulumi up and confirm the deployment to create the resources.

    This gives you a starting point for deploying ibm-connect-direct to an Azure Managed OpenShift cluster. For actual deployment, make sure to tailor the configurations to your specific needs, especially where placeholder comments are indicated.
