1. Deploy the tyk-dev-portal helm chart on Opensshift


    To deploy the tyk-dev-portal Helm chart on an OpenShift cluster using Pulumi, you'll need to have access to the cluster and be able to interact with it using kubectl. The following Pulumi program assumes that you have the necessary access and that your Pulumi environment is already configured for the Kubernetes provider.

    We will use the kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart resource from Pulumi's Kubernetes provider to deploy the Helm chart. The Chart resource allows us to specify the details of the Helm chart we wish to deploy, such as repository, chart name, values, version, etc.

    Here is a program written in TypeScript that demonstrates how to deploy the tyk-dev-portal Helm chart on an OpenShift cluster:

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Create a new Helm chart instance for the tyk-dev-portal const tykDevPortalChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("tyk-dev-portal", { // Replace with the correct repository URL for the tyk-dev-portal Helm chart repo: "the-repository-url", chart: "tyk-dev-portal", // Specify the namespace where the chart should be deployed // It should be an existing namespace or you can create one exlicitly as part of this program. namespace: "tyk-dev-portal-namespace", // Override default configuration values here. // This is where you can set values as you would do in a typical values.yaml file // or with the `--set` command line argument when using helm directly. values: { // Add configuration values specific to tyk-dev-portal here }, // Optionally, you can specify the version of the chart to be deployed version: "chart-version", }, { provider: /* a k8s Provider resource if required, such as when using more than one cluster */ }); export const chartName = tykDevPortalChart.metadata.name;

    This Pulumi program will declare a Helm chart and attempt to deploy it. To explain what we're doing:

    • We import the @pulumi/kubernetes package to interact with Kubernetes resources.
    • We create a Helm chart resource called tykDevPortalChart, which represents the Tyk Developer Portal Helm chart we want to deploy.
    • In the Chart constructor, we provide an object with configuration options:
      • repo should be replaced with the actual URL of the repository where the Tyk Helm chart is hosted.
      • chart specifies the name of the chart we want to deploy; in this case, tyk-dev-portal.
      • namespace is where our chart will be deployed within the Kubernetes cluster. Ensure that the namespace exists; otherwise, you can manage namespace resources in Pulumi too.
      • values are the settings for the chart, comparable to what you might place in a values.yaml file or pass via the --set Helm CLI option. You will need to provide the actual values that apply to your deployment here.
      • version is used to specify the version of the Helm chart you want to deploy. If this option is omitted, the latest version is installed.
    • The provider option is available if you need to target a specific Kubernetes cluster, especially when dealing with multiple clusters. You may omit this if you have a single cluster setup with default credentials in your environment.
    • The export statement at the end makes the name of the deployed chart accessible as an output once Pulumi has completed deploying your resources to the cluster.

    Before running this program, ensure you have done the following:

    • Installed Pulumi and configured it for use with your Kubernetes cluster.
    • Authenticated with your OpenShift cluster so that Helm and Pulumi can communicate with it.
    • Replaced the placeholder values (the-repository-url, tyk-dev-portal-namespace, chart-version, etc.) with actual values that match your specific deployment requirements.

    To run this program, save it to a file (e.g., index.ts), and use the Pulumi command-line interface:

    pulumi up

    Pulumi will then perform the deployment, and you'll be able to see the status and any errors in your terminal. When the deployment succeeds, you will find the Tyk Developer Portal running in your OpenShift cluster in the specified namespace.
