1. Deploy the ibm-mongodb-enterprise-helm helm chart on Rancher


    To deploy the ibm-mongodb-enterprise-helm chart on Rancher using Pulumi, you'll need to follow these steps:

    1. Set up Rancher - Ensure that you have a Rancher server set up and that you have access to it. You'll need the Rancher API endpoint and appropriate credentials to interact with Rancher using Pulumi.

    2. Install Pulumi - If you haven't already, you'll need to install Pulumi.

    3. Install Node.js and NPM - Pulumi programs in TypeScript require Node.js and NPM. Make sure you have them installed.

    4. Set up your Pulumi project - Create a new Pulumi project using TypeScript. This typically involves creating a new directory, running pulumi new, and selecting the TypeScript template.

    5. Install the Rancher2 Pulumi Provider - Use NPM to install the Rancher2 provider, which allows you to interact with Rancher.

    6. Write the Deployment Code - You will write TypeScript code that uses the Rancher2 provider to deploy the Helm chart onto a Rancher-managed Kubernetes cluster.

    7. Deploy with Pulumi - Run pulumi up to create and deploy resources to Rancher.

    Below is a Pulumi TypeScript program that demonstrates how you might deploy a Helm chart to a Rancher Kubernetes cluster. The program assumes you have set up your Rancher cluster and configured your Pulumi environment with the necessary access to interact with Rancher.

    import * as rancher2 from "@pulumi/rancher2"; import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; // Create a catalog that includes the Helm chart repository containing the ibm-mongodb-enterprise chart. const catalog = new rancher2.CatalogV2("ibm-helm-catalog", { clusterId: "<RANCHER-CLUSTER-ID>", // Replace with your actual Rancher cluster ID gitRepo: "https://charts.bitnami.com/bitnami", // Placeholder URL, change to the actual Helm chart repo if different gitBranch: "master", // Use the appropriate branch if different from 'master' }); // Create a namespace for the MongoDB deployment. const namespace = new rancher2.Namespace("mongodb-namespace", { projectId: "<RANCHER-PROJECT-ID>", // Replace with your actual Rancher project ID name: "mongodb-ns", // The namespace to deploy MongoDB into }); // Deploy the ibm-mongodb-enterprise Helm chart from the catalog we added above. const mongodb = new rancher2.AppV2("mongodb", { clusterId: catalog.clusterId, chartName: "mongodb", releaseName: "ibm-mongodb-enterprise", // The release name of the deployment repoName: catalog.name, // Use the catalog created above namespace: namespace.name, // Use the namespace created above chartVersion: "10.8.4", // Specify the chart version you want to deploy values: pulumi.output({}), // Chart values configuration, add necessary values here }); // Export the URL to access the deployed MongoDB instance. export const mongoDbUrl = pulumi.interpolate`mongodb://${mongodb.status.namespace}.${mongodb.status?.notes}`;

    In the example above, replace placeholders such as <RANCHER-CLUSTER-ID> and <RANCHER-PROJECT-ID> with actual values from your Rancher setup.

    The CatalogV2 resource represents a Helm chart repository that Rancher can access. The AppV2 resource represents an installed instance of a chart from a catalog. The Namespace resource ensures that a namespace is available for the MongoDB chart installation.

    Finally, the program exports the URL where you can access the MongoDB instance, which is an interpolated string based on the status of the AppV2 resource. Note that the actual URL will depend on the service configuration in the Helm chart and might require additional setup or manual retrieval of the service endpoints.

    To apply this Pulumi program and deploy your chart, run pulumi up in the terminal from your project directory. Monitor the output for any errors and address them as needed. Ensure that you have the correct access rights and that your Pulumi configuration is correctly set up for your Rancher cluster.

    Remember to review the Helm chart's own documentation and configuration options, as you might need to specify additional configuration values for your MongoDB deployment to suit your requirements, such as persistent storage, replica count, or authentication settings. These can be included in the values property of the AppV2 resource.
