1. Deploy the unifi-video helm chart on Oracle Kubernetes Engine (OKE)


    To deploy the UniFi Video Helm chart on Oracle Kubernetes Engine (OKE), you will need to follow these general steps:

    1. Set Up Oracle Kubernetes Engine (OKE): Ensure you have an OKE cluster up and running. You can create one through the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) console, using the oci command-line tool, or using Pulumi's OCI provider.

    2. Configure Kubeconfig: Make sure your kubeconfig is set up correctly to interact with your OKE cluster. You typically obtain this file from OCI after creating your cluster which contains the necessary credentials and endpoints to control your cluster with kubectl.

    3. Install Helm: Helm is a package manager for Kubernetes, which we will use to install the UniFi Video chart. Helm must be installed on your local machine and should have access to your cluster's API server.

    4. Add Helm Chart Repository: Before installing the UniFi Video Helm chart, you will need to add the repository that contains the chart.

    5. Deploy Helm Chart: Once Helm is set up and the repository is added, you can deploy the UniFi Video Helm chart to your OKE cluster.

    In the Pulumi TypeScript program below, we'll focus on deploying an existing Helm chart to an OKE cluster. For the sake of simplicity, this program assumes that the cluster is already running and configured to interact with Pulumi (steps 1 and 2).

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Replace with the appropriate values for your OKE cluster context and UniFi Video Helm chart details. const clusterContext = "myOKEClusterContext"; const unifiVideoChartRepo = "https://path-to-unifi-video-helm-repo"; const unifiVideoChartName = "unifi-video"; const unifiVideoChartVersion = "x.y.z"; // Specify the chart version you wish to deploy // Create a Kubernetes provider instance using the context of the OKE cluster const provider = new k8s.Provider("oke-k8s", { kubeconfig: process.env.KUBECONFIG, context: clusterContext, }); // Add the UniFi Video Helm chart repository const repo = new k8s.helm.v3.Repository("unifi-video-repo", { repo: unifiVideoChartRepo, }, { provider: provider }); // Deploy the UniFi Video Helm chart const unifiVideoChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("unifi-video", { chart: unifiVideoChartName, version: unifiVideoChartVersion, fetchOpts: { repo: unifiVideoChartRepo, }, }, { provider: provider }); export const unifiVideoChartStatus = unifiVideoChart.status;

    Here's what each part of the code does:

    • We import the Kubernetes package from Pulumi, which is necessary to interact with Kubernetes resources from the Pulumi program.

    • The clusterContext variable should be replaced with the actual context name of your OKE cluster that you would use with kubectl.

    • The Helm chart repository URL (unifiVideoChartRepo), chart name (unifiVideoChartName), and chart version (unifiVideoChartVersion) should be replaced with the correct details for the UniFi Video Helm chart.

    • We create a Pulumi Kubernetes Provider that understands how to communicate with your OKE Kubernetes cluster using your cluster context.

    • We then set up the UniFi Video Helm chart repository. It's important for Helm to know where to fetch the chart from, hence we add the unifiVideoChartRepo.

    • Lastly, we deploy the UniFi Video Helm chart to your OKE cluster using the Pulumi Kubernetes Chart resource, which wraps Helm installations.

    Don't forget to export any stack outputs if you want to access them outside your Pulumi program, such as retrieving the status of the Helm deployment.

    Remember to run pulumi up to review and apply these changes to your actual OKE cluster.
