1. Deploy the tyk-data-plane helm chart on Kubernetes


    To deploy the tyk-data-plane Helm chart on Kubernetes using Pulumi, you'll be working with the Chart resource from the @pulumi/kubernetes package. This resource is responsible for deploying Helm charts into a Kubernetes cluster.

    Here's a step-by-step guide followed by a TypeScript example to achieve this:

    1. Set up Pulumi Kubernetes Provider: You'll begin by configuring Pulumi to interact with your Kubernetes cluster. The provider allows Pulumi to perform operations on the Kubernetes cluster by using your kubeconfig file.

    2. Create a Helm Chart Resource: You'll define a Chart resource that specifies the tyk-data-plane Helm chart. You'll need to provide the chart name, version, and any specific values you wish to override in the Helm chart.

    3. Deploy the Chart: Once the Chart resource is defined, Pulumi will handle the deployment process when you run pulumi up. It will install the Helm chart into your Kubernetes cluster with the provided configuration.

    Here's the Pulumi TypeScript code that accomplishes the deployment:

    import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; import * as kubernetes from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Create a new Pulumi Kubernetes provider instance using the current context from kubeconfig. const k8sProvider = new kubernetes.Provider("k8s", { // Pulumi automatically uses the kubeconfig from KUBECONFIG environment variable or default location. }); // Define the Helm chart for Tyk Data Plane. // You may need to specify the exact version or any additional values depending on your use case. const tykDataPlaneChart = new kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart("tyk-data-plane-chart", { chart: "tyk-data-plane", // Specify the Helm repository that hosts the tyk-data-plane chart fetchOpts: { repo: "https://helm.tyk.io/public/helm/charts/", }, // Insert any required values needed to configure Tyk Data Plane or override its default values here. // For example: // values: { // someValue: "override-value", // }, }, { provider: k8sProvider }); // Export the Kubernetes resources created by the Helm chart. export const resources = tykDataPlaneChart.resources;

    In this program:

    • We import the necessary Pulumi packages for Kubernetes and Helm.
    • We create a Kubernetes Provider instance that Pulumi uses to interact with the target Kubernetes cluster.
    • We set up a Chart resource with chart set to 'tyk-data-plane'. We also specify the Helm repository URL where the chart can be found.
    • Optionally, you could provide a values object if you need to override any values in the default chart.

    Remember to replace the repo URL with the correct repository if tyk-data-plane is hosted somewhere else. Also, fill the values field accordingly if you have specific configuration requirements for tyk-data-plane.

    To deploy the Helm chart:

    1. Save the code in a file (e.g., index.ts).
    2. Ensure the Pulumi CLI is installed and configured with your Kubernetes cluster.
    3. Run pulumi up in the directory containing the code. Pulumi will perform the deployment.

    Lastly, the resources export is a Pulumi feature that gives you access to the status of all resources created by the Helm chart in Pulumi's outputs. This is useful for integrating with other Pulumi-managed resources, like setting up monitoring or alerting based on the deployed resources.
