1. Deploy the snappass helm chart on Opensshift


    To deploy the SnapPass Helm chart on OpenShift using Pulumi, we'll use resources from the Kubernetes provider - specifically, the kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart class, which allows you to deploy applications using Helm charts. Helm charts are collections of pre-configured Kubernetes resources that you can deploy as a single unit.

    Here's an outline of the steps we're going to take:

    1. Set up the Kubernetes provider to connect to your OpenShift cluster.
    2. Use the Chart resource to deploy the SnapPass Helm chart.

    The following program is written in TypeScript and assumes you have already configured kubectl to communicate with your OpenShift cluster. The Helm chart for SnapPass is not officially available in the Helm chart repositories, so for the purpose of this example, we will assume you have the chart available locally or in a custom Helm chart repository.

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Create a Kubernetes provider instance configured to your OpenShift cluster. // This uses the default kubeconfig e.g., ~/.kube/config const provider = new k8s.Provider("openshift-provider", {}); // Define the SnapPass Helm chart deployment. // Make sure to replace 'path/to/snappass-chart' with the actual path to your SnapPass Helm chart // or if it's in a custom repository, provide the 'repo' property. const snappassChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("snappass", { path: "path/to/snappass-chart", // or `repo` if you're using a Helm repository values: { /* ... your custom values ... */ }, namespace: "snappass-namespace", // specify the namespace where you want to deploy SnapPass }, { provider: provider }); // Export the base URL for the SnapPass service export const snappassUrl = snappassChart.getResourceProperty("v1/Service", "snappass-service", "status").apply(status => status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].ip);

    Here's a breakdown of what the code does:

    • import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes";: We import the Pulumi Kubernetes SDK to interact with Kubernetes resources.

    • const provider = new k8s.Provider("openshift-provider", {});: We instantiate a Pulumi provider for Kubernetes that will use the default kubeconfig for authentication against your OpenShift cluster.

    • const snappassChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("snappass", {/*...*/}, { provider: provider });: We deploy the SnapPass application using a Helm Chart. Replace "path/to/snappass-chart" with the location of your SnapPass Helm chart. If your chart requires specific configuration, you can provide that in the values object. Make sure to specify the namespace where the Helm chart should be deployed. If you want to deploy the chart from a custom repository, you need to specify the repo property instead of the path.

    • export const snappassUrl: We try to export a base URL of the SnapPass service. We assume that the service is of the type LoadBalancer and that the public IP is allocated (this exact syntax may vary depending on how OpenShift and SnapPass are configured).

    To use this code, place it into a TypeScript file (e.g., index.ts), install the necessary dependencies with npm or yarn, and run pulumi up to provision the resources. If you don't have a particular SnapPass Helm chart, you'll need to find or create one that suits your needs.

    Remember, it's crucial to check the documentation of the Helm chart used (in this case, SnapPass) for any prerequisites and specific chart configurations. The values and resources I've referenced may need to be adjusted to conform to the actual Helm chart you're deploying.
