1. Deploy the sysdig helm chart on Opensshift


    To deploy the Sysdig Helm chart on an OpenShift cluster using Pulumi, you need to perform a series of steps. First, ensure you have access to an OpenShift cluster and have the necessary permissions to deploy applications.

    The kubernetes.helm.sh/v3.Chart resource is ideal for this task, as it allows you to deploy a Helm chart to your Kubernetes cluster, which in your case is OpenShift. OpenShift is compatible with standard Kubernetes APIs, so deploying a Helm chart should be similar to deploying it on a vanilla Kubernetes cluster.

    Here's a step-by-step guide, including the Pulumi TypeScript program that you can run:


    • OpenShift Cluster: Ensure you have access to your cluster and kubectl or oc CLI is configured to interact with your OpenShift cluster.
    • Helm and Sysdig: You should know the Sysdig Helm chart name and repository URL. Verify that it is available and works with your OpenShift cluster.
    • Pulumi: Have Pulumi CLI installed and setup with the TypeScript language runtime. Log in to your Pulumi account using pulumi login.

    Pulumi TypeScript Program

    Here is a Pulumi TypeScript program that demonstrates how to deploy the Sysdig Helm chart to an OpenShift cluster:

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Replace with the appropriate name and repo URL for the Sysdig Helm chart. const sysdigChartName = "sysdig"; const sysdigRepoUrl = "https://charts.sysdig.com"; // Create a provider to connect to the existing OpenShift cluster. const openshiftProvider = new k8s.Provider("openshiftProvider", { // Assuming `kubectl` is already configured to connect to your OpenShift cluster // otherwise, configure kubeconfig to point to your OpenShift cluster kubeconfig: process.env.KUBECONFIG, }); // Define the namespace where Sysdig will be deployed. Adjust if necessary. const sysdigNamespace = new k8s.core.v1.Namespace("sysdig-namespace", { metadata: { name: "sysdig" }, }, { provider: openshiftProvider }); // Deploy Sysdig using the Helm chart. const sysdigHelmChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("sysdig-helm-chart", { chart: sysdigChartName, version: "x.x.x", // Specify the chart version fetchOpts: { repo: sysdigRepoUrl, }, namespace: sysdigNamespace.metadata.name, // Ensure this matches the namespace created above // Values from your custom `values.yaml` file can be provided here as an object. values: { // Custom values for Sysdig Helm chart... }, }, { provider: openshiftProvider }); // Export any output needed, for example the Sysdig service endpoint. export const sysdigServiceEndpoint = sysdigHelmChart.getResourceProperty('v1/Service', 'sysdig-agent', 'status').apply(status => status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].ip);


    1. OpenShift Provider: We instantiate a k8s Provider which tells Pulumi how to communicate with the OpenShift cluster. Here, the program assumes kubectl is configured to target your cluster (via process.env.KUBECONFIG).

    2. Namespace Creation: A Kubernetes namespace called sysdig is created in your OpenShift cluster. Namespaces help you organize clusters into isolated groups for your projects.

    3. Helm Chart Deployment: The Sysdig Helm chart is deployed to your OpenShift cluster within the sysdig namespace. You need to provide the chart name and repository URL. If a specific chart version is required, it is specified here along with any custom values that may be necessary for the deployment, which should be placed in the values object.

    4. Output Exports: This is where any outputs from your deployment are exported, such as service endpoints, so that you can access them from outside the Pulumi program.

    Run the Pulumi Program

    To apply this Pulumi program:

    1. Save the code to a file named index.ts.
    2. Run pulumi stack init to create a new stack if this is a new project.
    3. Use pulumi up to preview and deploy the changes. Pulumi CLI will execute the program and provision the resources in the OpenShift cluster.

    In case you need to adjust the configurations or add custom values required by the Sysdig Helm chart, modify the values property in the sysdigHelmChart instantiation.

    Please ensure you consult the Sysdig Helm chart documentation for any specific requirements or configurations needed. This program provides a general template for deploying a Helm chart to OpenShift using Pulumi.
