1. Artifact Storage for AI Workflows in GitLab


    To manage artifact storage for AI workflows in GitLab using Pulumi, you will typically need to interact with GitLab through the pulumi_gitlab provider, and manage resources such as projects, where you configure CI/CD pipelines that produce artifacts.

    Here's a Pulumi program in Python that demonstrates how to create a new GitLab project with certain CI/CD configurations, which is a typical place where your AI workflow would run and produce artifacts. You would also want to ensure that your AI workflows have appropriate runner configurations to execute the jobs that generate artifacts.

    Let's set this up step by step:

    1. Import the required modules: Import the pulumi and pulumi_gitlab modules so that we can use resources provided by the GitLab provider.

    2. Create a GitLab project: We'll define a new project in GitLab where our AI workflows will reside.

    3. Define CI/CD Settings: While the program below does not directly define CI/CD pipeline configurations (as these are typically done in .gitlab-ci.yml files), it ensures that the project is set up with the features needed for CI/CD, like enabling a container registry or specifying the build timeout. The CI/CD pipeline will be responsible for defining jobs that create and manage artifacts.

    4. Setup a GitLab Runner (optional): In case you need a specific runner to execute your workflows, you would configure a Runner. This is optional and depends on whether you need a specific runner apart from the shared runners provided by GitLab.

    Here is the program that accomplishes the above:

    import pulumi import pulumi_gitlab as gitlab # Create a new private project with CI/CD configuration # The CI/CD pipeline that you configure in your project will handle the creation and storage of artifacts. project = gitlab.Project("ai-model-project", name="ai-model-project", description="Project to store AI workflow artifacts", visibility_level="private", issues_enabled=True, merge_requests_enabled=True, wiki_enabled=False, # Example of turning off features not needed builds_access_level="enabled", container_registry_enabled=True, # Enable container registry if you're using containers build_timeout=3600, # Timeout for builds, in seconds shared_runners_enabled=True # Use shared runners provided by GitLab for executing CI jobs ) # Setting up a GitLab Runner (Optional) # This is an optional step if you need specific runners for your project runner = gitlab.Runner("ai-model-runner", description="Runner for AI workflows", active=True, locked_to_project=True, run_untagged=False, tag_list=["ai", "ml"], access_level="ref_protected", maximum_timeout=7200, # Optional: Override maximum job timeout, in seconds, set in the project registration_token=project.runners_token # Use the registration token of the project ) # Export the GitLab project URL for easy access pulumi.export("project_url", project.web_url) # If you created a runner, you could also export the runner ID # pulumi.export("runner_id", runner.id)

    In this program:

    • We're creating a private project named ai-model-project. Replace "ai-model-project" with the desired name of your project.
    • The visibility_level is set to private. You can adjust the visibility as per your requirement (public, internal, or private).
    • CI/CD-related settings are then provided, such as enabling builds, setting a build timeout, etc.
    • The container registry is enabled by setting container_registry_enabled to True. It's useful if you are working with Docker containers and need a place to store them.
    • The Runner resource is optional and dependent on your specific needs. If you need a specific runner with certain tags and configurations to run your jobs, you should uncomment this block and fill in the appropriate details.
    • We export the project URL so that you can quickly access your project from the Pulumi stack outputs.

    This Pulumi program provides the infrastructure-as-code foundation to set up your AI workflows in GitLab. Remember that the actual CI/CD pipeline configuration, written in .gitlab-ci.yml, would define the steps to generate and store artifacts. The .gitlab-ci.yml is part of your repository's code base, not managed directly by Pulumi.
