1. Deploy the cloudflare helm chart on Opensshift


    To deploy the Cloudflare Helm chart on OpenShift, you'd typically follow these steps:

    1. Set up your Pulumi environment: Make sure you have Pulumi installed and configured for TypeScript.
    2. Set up OpenShift and Kubernetes access: Ensure you have kubectl access to your OpenShift cluster and that your kubeconfig file (~/.kube/config) is properly configured.
    3. Identify the Helm Chart: Determine the correct Helm chart for Cloudflare, including its repository and any necessary values you wish to configure.
    4. Write your Pulumi program: Use Pulumi's Kubernetes package to deploy the Helm chart to your OpenShift cluster.

    Below you'll find a detailed Pulumi program written in TypeScript that accomplishes this. This program assumes you have already set up Pulumi and your kubeconfig is pointing to the OpenShift cluster you want to deploy to.

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Create a Kubernetes provider instance that uses our existing kubeconfig. const openshiftProvider = new k8s.Provider("openshift", { kubeconfig: process.env.KUBECONFIG, // or specify your kubeconfig path here }); // Define the Cloudflare Helm Chart details such as version, repository, and any custom values. const cloudflareChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("cloudflare", { chart: "cloudflare", // This is a placeholder name, you will need the actual chart name. version: "1.0.0", // Replace with the appropriate chart version. fetchOpts: { repo: "https://charts.cloudflare.com/", // Use the correct repository URL. }, // Specify the namespace where you want to deploy the chart. // If it doesn't exist, Pulumi will create it as part of the deployment process. namespace: "cloudflare-namespace", }, { provider: openshiftProvider }); // If the chart contains any configurable values, you can specify them in the `values` field. // For example, if you need to set an API token or other parameters, you could add it here: // // values: { // apiToken: "your-cloudflare-api-token", // // ... other Cloudflare Helm chart values // } export const chartName = cloudflareChart.metadata.name;


    • We first import the Pulumi Kubernetes SDK which is used to interact with Kubernetes resources.
    • We create a Provider which is responsible for configuring Pulumi to talk to our OpenShift cluster using the kubeconfig file.
    • We define a Chart resource to install the Cloudflare Helm chart into our OpenShift cluster. This requires the name of the chart (cloudflare in the example), and the repository where the chart can be found (https://charts.cloudflare.com/ is a placeholder and should be replaced with the actual repository URL).
    • The namespace parameter specifies which namespace the chart should be deployed into. If it does not exist, Pulumi will create it.
    • Optionally, you can specify values to customize the chart parameters via the values field if the Cloudflare chart requires or supports configuration. You'll need to provide your specific values according to the Cloudflare Helm chart's documentation.
    • Finally, we export the name of the Helm Chart as a stack output to obtain the deployment's metadata after a successful deployment.

    Please replace the placeholder values and chart information with the actual details provided by Cloudflare's Helm chart documentation. Run this program using Pulumi CLI by navigating to the directory containing this code and executing pulumi up. This will start the deployment process to your OpenShift cluster.
