1. Deploy the crossplane-exoscale-factory helm chart on Opensshift


    To deploy a Helm chart on an OpenShift cluster using Crossplane and the Pulumi Kubernetes provider, you'll need to follow these steps:

    1. Set up your OpenShift cluster: Ensure your OpenShift cluster is up and running. You can provision an OpenShift cluster on various cloud providers or on-premises.

    2. Install and Configure Crossplane: Crossplane must be installed in your OpenShift cluster. It serves as an add-on to Kubernetes to manage and provision infrastructure through Kubernetes manifests.

    3. Install Crossplane Provider for Exoscale: If you are working with Exoscale resources, install the Exoscale provider for Crossplane, ensuring it can manage Exoscale resources.

    4. Create Provider Configuration for Exoscale: You'll need to create a provider configuration for Exoscale in Crossplane that includes your Exoscale credentials. This will allow Crossplane to authenticate with Exoscale on your behalf.

    5. Install the Helm Chart using Pulumi: Using the Pulumi Kubernetes provider, create a Pulumi program to deploy the crossplane-exoscale-factory Helm chart to your OpenShift cluster.

    The following TypeScript Pulumi program outlines these steps. We'll use the kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart resource to deploy the Helm chart, which is suitable when you have a Helm chart you wish to deploy as part of your Pulumi application.

    Before you begin, ensure you have the following prerequisites:

    • You have installed pulumi-cli and setup the Pulumi Kubernetes provider.
    • You have access to your OpenShift cluster with kubectl configured to communicate with it.
    • You have Crossplane installed in your OpenShift cluster.
    • You have the Exoscale Crossplane provider and its credentials configured in your cluster.

    Here's how your Pulumi TypeScript program could look:

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Define the namespace where Crossplane and the Exoscale provider are installed. const crossplaneNamespace = "crossplane-system"; // Define the provider configuration for Exoscale. // This step assumes that the Crossplane Exoscale provider has already been set up in your cluster // and that the `ProviderConfig` has been named 'exoscale-provider-config'. const exoscaleProviderConfig = "exoscale-provider-config"; // Deploy the 'crossplane-exoscale-factory' Helm chart to your OpenShift cluster. const crossplaneExoscaleFactory = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart( "crossplane-exoscale-factory", { namespace: crossplaneNamespace, chart: "crossplane-exoscale-factory", // If you have a specific chart repository, you may specify the `repo` parameter. // For example: repo: "https://charts.crossplane.io/stable" values: { // You can pass configuration values for your Helm chart here. For example, // These would correspond to the configurable values in your chart's `values.yaml` file. providerConfigRef: { name: exoscaleProviderConfig, }, }, }, { provider: new k8s.Provider("openshift", { // Point to the kubeconfig of your OpenShift cluster kubeconfig: "<YOUR KUBECONFIG CONTENTS>", }), } ); // Export any properties that might be useful. export const helmChartStatus = crossplaneExoscaleFactory.status;

    This program establishes the Helm chart installation using Pulumi:

    • We import the Pulumi Kubernetes SDK at the top.
    • The crossplaneExoscaleFactory constant is a Pulumi Kubernetes resource representing the Helm chart. It is given a name and provided with the chart's configuration details.
    • The Namespace indicates where the Helm chart will be installed — it should be the same namespace where Crossplane is running.
    • The values field is an object representing the values.yaml that you would typically override when installing a Helm chart with command line tools like helm. You replace the placeholders with actual values for the chart you're deploying.
    • We ensure that we use the OpenShift provider by creating a new instance of the @pulumi/kubernetes provider and passing in your OpenShift's kubeconfig.

    You will need to replace <YOUR KUBECONFIG CONTENTS> with the actual kubeconfig file contents for your OpenShift cluster.

    After running this Pulumi program with pulumi up, the specified Helm chart will be deployed to your OpenShift cluster. We also export the status of the Helm chart so that you can observe its deployment status from Pulumi's outputs.

    Please make sure that the chart name and all necessary configurations match the actual crossplane-exoscale-factory Helm chart's settings that you are attempting to deploy.
