1. Deploy the ibm-aspera-operator helm chart on Opensshift


    To deploy the ibm-aspera-operator Helm chart on OpenShift using Pulumi, you'll need to use the Kubernetes provider to interact with your OpenShift cluster. Pulumi's Kubernetes provider can be used to deploy Helm charts, which is analogous to how you might use the Helm CLI tool.

    Before deploying a Helm chart to OpenShift, make sure you have:

    1. An OpenShift cluster up and running.
    2. kubectl configured to connect to your OpenShift cluster.
    3. Pulumi CLI installed and set up for use.

    Below is a Pulumi TypeScript program that demonstrates how to deploy a Helm chart to an OpenShift cluster. This is a high-level overview of the steps the program performs:

    1. Import necessary packages.
    2. Create a Kubernetes provider instance to interact with OpenShift.
    3. Use the Chart resource to deploy the ibm-aspera-operator Helm chart.

    Here's how the Pulumi program would look like:

    import * as kubernetes from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Initialize a Kubernetes provider to interact with OpenShift. // The provider uses the configuration of the current context from your kubeconfig file. const provider = new kubernetes.Provider("openshift-provider", { // Make sure to set the kubeconfig to a kubeconfig file that targets your OpenShift cluster. // If this is not set, Pulumi will use the default kubeconfig context. kubeconfig: process.env.KUBECONFIG, }); // Configure the Helm chart for the IBM Aspera operator on OpenShift. const asperaChart = new kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart("ibm-aspera-operator", { chart: "ibm-aspera-operator", // Specify the Helm repository here. // Helm repository details can vary and you might need to search for the exact URL. // Replace `repoUrl` with the actual Helm repository URL hosting the `ibm-aspera-operator` chart. fetchOpts: { repo: "<repoUrl>", }, // Set the namespace where you want to deploy the chart, if different than the default. namespace: "default", // You can override default values or add more configuration settings by providing them in 'values'. values: { // Example configuration: Replace this with actual values from the chart's `values.yaml` service: { type: "LoadBalancer", }, // Add more configuration parameters for your chart here. }, }, { provider }); // Export the base URL or any other details of the deployed service. // You would replace 'serviceName' with the actual name of the service created by the Helm chart. export const baseUrl = asperaChart.getResourceProperty("v1/Service", "serviceName", "status").apply(status => status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].hostname);

    In the above code:

    • kubeconfig is by default obtained from your environment, which allows Pulumi to authenticate with your OpenShift cluster. You can explicitly pass in a kubeconfig file path if necessary.
    • The fetchOpts.repo property should be updated with the appropriate Helm repository URL that stores the ibm-aspera-operator chart.
    • The values property allows you to provide overridable configuration options to customize the Helm release.
    • getResourceProperty attempts to export an addressable URL for the service. The actual property path to use might differ based on how the Helm chart exposes the service.

    Make sure to replace placeholder values (like <repoUrl> and serviceName) with the actual names from your environment and your Helm chart. Also, ensure that the namespace and value options passed to the chart are correct for your specific instance of OpenShift.

    After the program is ready, you can deploy it using Pulumi by running the following commands in your terminal:

    pulumi up

    This will prompt you to confirm the deployment after showing you a preview. If everything looks good, confirm to proceed with the deployment.

    Always consult the chart's documentation to find out what values can be configured and what features are available.

    Remember to use version control (like git) to manage and track changes to your Pulumi programs.
