1. Deploy the wbstack-clusterissuers helm chart on Rancher


    To deploy the wbstack-clusterissuers Helm chart on Rancher using Pulumi, we'll need to perform a few steps. First, we need to understand that Pulumi works with cloud providers through the use of providers and resources. Here the rancher2 package provides the necessary resources to interact with a Rancher instance.

    Assuming that you've set up your Rancher environment, we'll be using the rancher2.CatalogV2 resource, which allows us to add a catalog to a Rancher server; the rancher2.Cluster resource, to specify the cluster to which we'll be deploying; and a rancher2.AppV2 resource to deploy the Helm chart to the specified cluster.

    Here's a Pulumi program in TypeScript to achieve this:

    import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; import * as rancher2 from "@pulumi/rancher2"; // Initialize the Pulumi Rancher2 provider with the URL and access credentials for your Rancher Server const provider = new rancher2.Provider("rancher", { apiUrl: "https://rancher.my-domain.com", accessToken: pulumi.secret("myRancherAccessToken"), secretKey: pulumi.secret("myRancherSecretKey"), }); // Add a catalog to the Rancher server where the Helm chart is located const catalog = new rancher2.CatalogV2("wbstack-catalog", { clusterId: "<CLUSTER_ID>", // Replace with the ID of your Kubernetes cluster within Rancher name: "wbstack", url: "https://charts.wbstack.com", // The Helm repository containing the `wbstack-clusterissuers` chart // Add other required properties like gitBranch or secretName as needed for your catalog setup }, { provider: provider }); // Deploy the wbstack-clusterissuers Helm chart const wbstackClusterIssuersApp = new rancher2.AppV2("wbstack-clusterissuers-app", { clusterId: "<CLUSTER_ID>", // Replace with the ID of your Kubernetes cluster within Rancher namespace: "default", // Replace with the target namespace for the Helm release name: "wbstack-clusterissuers", repoName: catalog.metadata.name, // Reference the catalog we just created chartName: "wbstack-clusterissuers", // The name of the chart in the repository chartVersion: "1.0.0", // Specify the version of the chart you want to deploy // values: Provide any custom values.yaml as an object }, { provider: provider, dependsOn: [catalog] }); // Ensure the catalog is created before deploying the app // Export the App name export const appname = wbstackClusterIssuersApp.metadata.name;

    This Pulumi program does the following:

    1. Provider Initialization: Sets up the Rancher provider with necessary API credentials. You'll need to replace myRancherAccessToken and myRancherSecretKey with your actual Rancher server access credentials.

    2. Catalog Creation: Creates a new catalog in your Rancher instance pointing to the Helm chart repository where the wbstack-clusterissuers chart can be found. You need to ensure the url is correct and provide the <CLUSTER_ID> for the Kubernetes cluster where you want to manage the catalog.

    3. Helm Chart Deployment: Deploys the wbstack-clusterissuers Helm chart from the catalog onto the specified Rancher Kubernetes cluster. Again, you'll have to provide the <CLUSTER_ID> and replace "default" if you wish to deploy to a different namespace.

    4. Exports: The name of the app as deployed is exported. You'll be able to use pulumi stack output appname to get the name of the app after the code runs.

    Ensure you replace the placeholders with actual values appropriate for your Rancher setup:

    • "<CLUSTER_ID>": with the Rancher cluster ID where you want to deploy the chart.
    • "https://rancher.my-domain.com": with the URL of your Rancher server.
    • Helm chartVersion: if you want to specify a different version of the chart.

    Remember to have your Kubernetes and Rancher2 provider configurations set up either via the Pulumi config commands or environmental variables for this program to work.

    After writing this code to your index.ts, you can run the Pulumi CLI commands (pulumi up) to preview and then apply your configurations, which will deploy the Helm chart on Rancher.

    Keep in mind that customization of the chart (like providing a values file or setting specific deployment parameters) can be set via the values property in the rancher2.AppV2 resource.
