1. Deploy the xline helm chart on Rancher


    To deploy a Helm chart on Rancher using Pulumi, you will need to use the rancher2 Pulumi provider. This provider allows you to interact with Rancher resources. Below is a guide, followed by a Pulumi TypeScript program that demonstrates how to deploy the xline Helm chart on Rancher.

    The Pulumi rancher2 provider does not have a direct resource for deploying Helm charts. Instead, you would use the rancher2.AppV2 resource, which represents an application that can be deployed on a Rancher cluster. However, this specific resource is not listed in the registry search results. If the registry does contain such a resource under a different name, it is not captured in the provided search results. Therefore, the program will initially look at setting up access to a Rancher cluster (rancher2.Cluster) where the Helm chart could be deployed, if an AppV2 or similar resource were available.

    If the current version of the rancher2 provider offers a suitable resource for Helm chart deployment, you're encouraged to visit the official rancher2 Pulumi provider documentation for complete and up-to-date resources and guidance.

    Here's a general structure for how you would write the TypeScript program:

    1. Import needed Pulumi and rancher2 libraries.
    2. Set up the Rancher provider configuration.
    3. Define a Rancher cluster where your Helm chart will be deployed.
    4. Deploy the xline Helm chart using an AppV2-like resource. (Note: As an example, we use a placeholder in this step, because the exact resource is not found in the given registry results).
    import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; import * as rancher2 from "@pulumi/rancher2"; // Configure the Rancher2 provider with the appropriate access credentials const rancherConfig = new rancher2.Provider("rancherConfig", { apiURL: "https://rancher.example.com/", // Replace with your Rancher API URL accessToken: "yourAccessToken", // Replace with your Rancher access token secretKey: "yourSecretKey", // Replace with your Rancher secret key }); // Fetch an existing Rancher cluster by name, or create one if needed const cluster = rancher2.getCluster({ name: "existing-cluster" // Replace with your existing Rancher cluster name }, { provider: rancherConfig }); // The hypothetical code below demonstrates how you might deploy a Helm chart using rancher2.AppV2 // Please refer to the Rancher2 provider documentation for the actual resource and properties. const xlineHelmChart = new rancher2.AppV2("xline-helm", { // Define the required properties for your Helm chart deployment: // - chart name // - chart version // - chart values // - target namespace // - cluster ID where this app is deployed // details will vary based on the actual resource definition }, { provider: rancherConfig }); // To fetch output details of your deployment, you can export relevant properties. export const helmChartName = xlineHelmChart.name; export const helmChartNamespace = xlineHelmChart.namespace; // Assuming the resource has a namespace property

    Please note that the above code is hypothetical and meant for illustrative purposes. The actual Pulumi types and properties may differ, so always consult the official Pulumi documentation for rancher2 to determine the exact usage. This code assumes that you have an existing Rancher cluster where you want to deploy the Helm chart and further assumes the existence of a suitable resource for deploying Helm charts that is akin to the AppV2 resource mentioned above.

    If deploying Helm charts via Pulumi is central to your needs and you're unable to find the corresponding Pulumi resource, consider using the Rancher CLI or UI to deploy the Helm chart instead, while automating other aspects of your Rancher-based infrastructure with Pulumi.
