1. Deploy the kafka-connector helm chart on Opensshift


    To deploy the Kafka Connector Helm chart on OpenShift using Pulumi, you'll need to use the Kubernetes provider and the Helm Chart resource type. The following TypeScript program demonstrates how to accomplish this task.

    First, you need to set up Pulumi with the Kubernetes provider configured for OpenShift. You will typically use the Pulumi Kubernetes provider which allows you to declare Kubernetes resources, including custom ones often required by Helm charts such as CRDs (Custom Resource Definitions).

    Next, you use the Chart class from @pulumi/kubernetes/helm/v3 module to declare a new Helm chart installation. The Chart resource requests that Helm install a specific chart from a repository. You can customize the installation with your values using the values option, and specify the namespace you want to deploy to.

    Here is a complete Pulumi program that deploys a Kafka Connector Helm chart on OpenShift:

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // OpenShift clusters typically contain a predefined 'kubeconfig' which // is used to access the cluster. Ensure your Pulumi program is using this // configuration when running the deployment. // Initialize the Kubernetes provider configured for OpenShift. const provider = new k8s.Provider("openshift", { // Assuming you have set up your kubeconfig to point to your OpenShift cluster. // Pulumi will use the current context in your kubeconfig file. }); // Deploy the Kafka Connector Helm chart from a specified repository. const kafkaConnectorChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("kafka-connector", { chart: "kafka-connector", version: "x.x.x", // Replace with the desired chart version fetchOpts: { repo: "https://charts.bitnami.com/bitnami", }, // You can provide custom values for the Helm chart by specifying them here. values: { // Define any Kafka Connector specific values here. // For example: // replicaCount: 2, // configuration: "...", }, }, { provider }); // Export the base URL where the Kafka Connector will be available export const baseUrl = kafkaConnectorChart.getResourceProperty("v1/Service", "kafka-connector", "status").apply(status => { return status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].ip; // or .hostname depending on your Cloud provider });

    This program does the following:

    • Imports the Kubernetes library from Pulumi.
    • Configures the OpenShift provider. You would have your OpenShift cluster's kubeconfig file set up in a default location or pointed to by the KUBECONFIG environment variable.
    • Deploys the Kafka Connector Helm chart by using the Chart resource. The chart is sourced from the Bitnami repository, which is a common source for Helm charts. Replace x.x.x with the actual version of the Kafka Connector Helm chart you want to deploy.
    • Optionally, the values property allows you to specify configuration settings that override the defaults provided by the Helm chart.

    When you run this Pulumi program, it will deploy the Kafka Connector using the Helm chart to your OpenShift cluster. The last part of the program exports the baseUrl which you can use to interact with the Kafka Connector after it's deployed. Please note that depending on your service setup and the cloud provider, you may need to use a different way to get the external IP or hostname.
