1. Deploy the atlassian-jira helm chart on Kubernetes


    To deploy the Atlassian Jira software on Kubernetes using a Helm chart, you'll need to follow these general steps:

    1. Set up your Kubernetes cluster: Make sure you have access to a Kubernetes cluster and that kubectl is configured to interact with it. If you're using a cloud provider, they usually offer managed Kubernetes services (like Amazon EKS, Google GKE, or Azure AKS) that you can use.

    2. Install Pulumi: You'll need Pulumi installed on your machine. You can download it from the official website.

    3. Create a Pulumi project: Start a new Pulumi project and choose the appropriate language and cloud configurations.

    4. Write the deployment code: Using Pulumi's Kubernetes provider, write the code to deploy the Helm chart to your Kubernetes cluster.

    5. Deploy with Pulumi: Run the deployment with Pulumi, which will execute your code and create the resources in your Kubernetes cluster.

    Below is a TypeScript program that defines the deployment of Atlassian Jira using the Helm chart on a Kubernetes cluster with Pulumi.

    import * as kubernetes from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Define the settings for the Jira Helm chart deployment. // Replace these values with the appropriate ones for your environment if necessary. const jiraHelmChartSettings = { namespace: "jira", // The Kubernetes namespace to deploy into. Change this to an existing namespace if required. chart: "jira", // The name of the Helm chart. Make sure 'jira' Helm chart is available or use the correct chart name. version: "X.Y.Z", // Replace X.Y.Z with the version number of the chart you want to deploy. repo: "https://atlassian.github.io/data-center-helm-charts", // The repository URL where the chart can be found. values: { // Helm values for customising the Jira deployment. // Specify configuration values here according to the Helm chart's requirements. // A common configuration for Jira might include setting up database connection settings, // resource requirements, etc. }, }; // Create a new Kubernetes namespace where Jira will be deployed. const jiraNamespace = new kubernetes.core.v1.Namespace(jiraHelmChartSettings.namespace, { metadata: { name: jiraHelmChartSettings.namespace, }, }, { protect: true }); // Protect the namespace from accidental deletion. // Deploy the Atlassian Jira Helm chart. const jiraHelmDeployment = new kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart("jira-helm-chart", { namespace: jiraNamespace.metadata.name, chart: jiraHelmChartSettings.chart, version: jiraHelmChartSettings.version, fetchOpts: { repo: jiraHelmChartSettings.repo, }, values: jiraHelmChartSettings.values, }); // Export the name of the namespace Jira was deployed into. export const jiraNamespaceName = jiraNamespace.metadata.name;

    In this program:

    • We import the @pulumi/kubernetes package, which contains the necessary components to interact with Kubernetes resources.

    • We define settings for the deployment, including the namespace to use, the chart details, etc. The values field allows customization of the deployment and should include any Jira-specific settings you wish to apply. You can find the available settings in the chart's values.yaml file or in the Helm chart's documentation.

    • We create a namespace specifically for Jira (if you prefer to use an existing namespace, you can skip the namespace creation step and instead provide the existing namespace's name).

    • We deploy Jira using the kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart class, which represents a Helm chart. We pass the configuration we defined earlier to this chart.

    • We export the namespace name so you can easily find and manage the resources that have been created in your Kubernetes cluster.

    To run this program with Pulumi:

    1. Initialize a new Pulumi project with pulumi new.
    2. Add the code above to the index.ts file in the project directory.
    3. Replace the version in the jiraHelmChartSettings with the specific version of the Jira chart you want to deploy. Optionally, you can fill in the values object to customize the deployed Jira application.
    4. Run pulumi up to deploy the chart to your Kubernetes cluster.

    Remember to check the configuration options for the Jira Helm chart, as there may be essential settings you'll need to provide, particularly for external dependencies like databases.
