1. Deploy the stunnel helm chart on Oracle Kubernetes Engine (OKE)


    To deploy the stunnel Helm chart on Oracle Kubernetes Engine (OKE), you'll need to write a Pulumi program that performs several tasks:

    1. Establishes a connection to your OKE cluster.
    2. Deploys the stunnel Helm chart to your cluster.

    First, you'll connect to the OKE cluster using Pulumi's Kubernetes provider. This is facilitated by using the kubernetes.Provider resource, which configures the Kubernetes API endpoint and other access credentials. To interact with OKE, you will typically have a kubeconfig file that contains the necessary details to connect to your Kubernetes cluster. If you're running Pulumi on a machine where kubectl is already configured to communicate with your OKE cluster, Pulumi can use the same configuration.

    Second, you'll use the kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart resource provided by the Pulumi Kubernetes provider to deploy the stunnel Helm chart. This resource allows you to deploy Helm charts in a very similar way to how you would use the helm CLI tool.

    Make sure you have Pulumi set up on your machine and you are logged into your Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) account. Ensure that your environment is authenticated with OKE and that you have Helm installed. You also need the Helm repository that contains the stunnel chart added to your local Helm configuration.

    Here's how you could write this program in TypeScript:

    import * as k8s from '@pulumi/kubernetes'; // Create a Kubernetes provider instance using the context of the current kubeconfig. const provider = new k8s.Provider('oke-provider', { // Assuming kubeconfig is configured to connect to your OKE cluster, Pulumi can use it directly. // You can also explicitly specify a kubeconfig file or its contents here. // kubeconfig: fs.readFileSync('/path/to/kubeconfig/file').toString(), }); // Define the release name and chart details for stunnel. const stunnelReleaseName = 'stunnel'; const stunnelChart = 'stunnel'; // This should be the exact name of the chart in the repository. const stunnelRepo = 'https://charts.example.com/'; // Replace with the actual Helm repo URL containing stunnel. const stunnelVersion = 'x.y.z'; // Replace with the specific version of the stunnel chart you wish to deploy. // Deploy stunnel Helm chart using the kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart resource. const stunnelHelmChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart(stunnelReleaseName, { chart: stunnelChart, version: stunnelVersion, fetchOpts: { // Fetch the chart from the specified Helm repo. repo: stunnelRepo, }, // values: { // // Specify any custom values required for your stunnel configuration here. // key: value, // }, }, { provider }); // Export the Helm chart status, which can help confirm deployment. export const helmChartStatus = stunnelHelmChart.status;

    Now, let's go through what the code does:

    1. The k8s.Provider resource is created to tell Pulumi how to communicate with your Kubernetes cluster. It's called oke-provider here.

    2. The k8s.helm.v3.Chart resource represents the stunnel Helm chart you want to deploy. You need to specify the chart name, version number, and repository URL.

    3. When the k8s.helm.v3.Chart resource is created, Pulumi will orchestrate the necessary actions to deploy the stunnel Helm chart to your OKE cluster, just like the helm command-line tool would do.

    4. The export statement at the end is a way for Pulumi to output important information. Here it outputs the status of the Helm chart deployment, which can be useful for you to verify that everything was deployed correctly.

    Run this program with the pulumi up command in the terminal. It will display a preview of the changes, which you can then confirm to apply. Once the deployment finishes, you will see any exported values, such as the Helm chart status, printed in the terminal.

    Keep in mind that for the above program to work, you need to replace the placeholder repository URL (https://charts.example.com/) and stunnel chart version with appropriate values you'd be using. Also, if you need to customize the stunnel deployment further, you can provide additional configuration through the values object in the k8s.helm.v3.Chart resource.
