1. Deploy the tekton-pipelines helm chart on Rancher


    To deploy the Tekton Pipelines Helm chart on a Rancher-managed Kubernetes cluster, you will need to perform several tasks:

    1. Have access to a Rancher Kubernetes cluster.
    2. Add the Helm chart repository that contains Tekton Pipelines to Rancher.
    3. Deploy the Tekton Pipelines Helm chart to your cluster.

    I will guide you through setting this up using Pulumi with TypeScript. The code will assume you have Pulumi installed and configured for use with Rancher.

    First, add the repository that contains the Tekton Pipelines Helm chart. In this example, I will use the rancher2.CatalogV2 because this resource manages Helm chart repositories in Rancher.

    Next, once the repository is added, you deploy the Helm chart using pulumi_kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart. Pulumi's Kubernetes provider can deploy Helm charts, and we will utilize this to deploy Tekton Pipelines.

    Below is the Pulumi TypeScript code that performs these steps:

    import * as pulumi from '@pulumi/pulumi'; import * as rancher2 from '@pulumi/rancher2'; import * as k8s from '@pulumi/kubernetes'; // Initialize a Rancher provider instance const rancherProvider = new rancher2.Provider("rancher", { api_url: "https://your-rancher-api-url", // Replace with your Rancher API URL accessKey: "your-access-key", // Replace with your Rancher Access Key secretKey: "your-secret-key", // Replace with your Rancher Secret Key }); // Add the Helm repository that contains Tekton Pipelines to Rancher const tektonRepo = new rancher2.CatalogV2("tekton-repo", { url: "https://tekton-charts.storage.googleapis.com", // Tekton Helm chart repository URL clusterId: "your-cluster-id", // Replace with your Rancher Cluster ID }, { provider: rancherProvider }); // Deploy the Tekton Pipelines Helm chart to the Rancher-cluster-managed Kubernetes cluster const tektonPipelines = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("tekton-pipelines", { chart: "tekton-pipelines", version: "0.14.3", // Specify the version of Tekton Pipelines you want to deploy fetchOpts: { repo: "https://tekton-charts.storage.googleapis.com", // Tekton Helm chart repository URL }, }, { provider: new k8s.Provider("k8s", { kubeconfig: rancherProvider.kubeconfig }) }); // Export the name of the cluster where Tekton Pipelines is deployed export const clusterName = pulumi.output(tektonRepo.clusterId);

    Remember to replace the placeholder values with your actual Rancher API URL, access key, secret key, and cluster ID. Let's walk through the code:

    • We start by importing the required Pulumi packages.
    • We initialize a rancher2.Provider which will allow us to interact with the Rancher API. You will need to fill in your specific API URL and credentials.
    • We use the rancher2.CatalogV2 resource to add the Tekton Helm chart repository to Rancher.
    • We then deploy Tekton Pipelines using the pulumi_kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart class.
    • Finally, we export the name of the cluster where Tekton Pipelines is deployed as an output of our Pulumi program.

    Once you have filled in all necessary placeholders, you can deploy this Pulumi program by running pulumi up in your terminal. This command will prompt you to confirm the deployment, after which Pulumi will provision the resources as described in the program.

    Please replace "https://your-rancher-api-url", "your-access-key", "your-secret-key", and "your-cluster-id" with your specific Rancher cluster details. You should make sure that your local environment is configured to interact with your Rancher cluster, which includes having kubectl configured with the necessary credentials.

    The version number "0.14.3" used in the Chart resource instantiation is hypothetical and should be replaced with the version of Tekton Pipiles Helm chart that you desire to deploy.

    If you need further assistance or have specific customizations you'd like to apply to your Tekton deployment, let me know, and I can help you adjust the Pulumi code accordingly.
