1. Deploy the devlake helm chart on Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)


    Deploying a Helm chart on Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) using Pulumi involves several steps. We need to first create an AKS cluster and then deploy the Helm chart onto that cluster.

    Creating an AKS Cluster

    To begin, we will create an AKS cluster using resources from the azure-native package. The ProvisionedCluster resource represents an AKS cluster in Azure.

    Setting up Helm Deployment

    Once we have our Kubernetes cluster, we can proceed to deploy the Helm chart. We use the Chart resource from the kubernetes package to deploy the devlake Helm chart onto our AKS cluster.

    Below is the TypeScript program to achieve this:

    import * as pulumi from '@pulumi/pulumi'; import * as azure_native from '@pulumi/azure-native'; import * as k8s from '@pulumi/kubernetes'; // Step 1: Create an AKS cluster const resourceGroup = new azure_native.resources.ResourceGroup('rg', { resourceGroupName: 'myResourceGroup', location: 'EastUS', // Choose the appropriate location }); const cluster = new azure_native.containerservice.ManagedCluster('aksCluster', { resourceGroupName: resourceGroup.name, agentPoolProfiles: [{ count: 2, // Set the number of nodes you wish to have in your AKS cluster maxPods: 110, mode: "System", name: "agentpool", osType: "Linux", vmSize: "Standard_DS2_v2", // A standard VM size for AKS }], dnsPrefix: 'myAKSCluster', kubernetesVersion: '1.20.9', location: resourceGroup.location, resourceGroupName: resourceGroup.name, }); // Step 2: Use the K8s provider to interact with the AKS cluster const k8sProvider = new k8s.Provider('k8sProvider', { kubeconfig: cluster.kubeConfigRaw, }); // Step 3: Deploy the Helm chart to the AKS cluster const devlakeChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart('devlakeChart', { chart: 'devlake', // Assuming 'devlake' is published in a Helm repository, specify its URL // If it's not in a Helm repo, you can set the 'path' field to the local chart directory fetchOpts: { repo: 'http://<helm-repo-url>/', }, // Specify any custom values for the Helm chart, if necessary // values: { ... }, }, { provider: k8sProvider }); // Export the kubeconfig to enable interacting with the AKS cluster export const kubeconfig = cluster.kubeConfigRaw;


    • We start by importing the required Pulumi packages.

    • Then, we create a resource group in Azure using azure_native.resources.ResourceGroup, which acts as a logical container for the AKS resources.

    • We define the AKS cluster configuration with azure_native.containerservice.ManagedCluster, specifying details such as the number and size of nodes, the OS type, and the Kubernetes version we want to deploy.

    • With the help of the @pulumi/kubernetes library, we create a k8s.Provider instance which allows us to interact with the AKS cluster using the kubeconfig obtained from the cluster resource.

    • We deploy the devlake Helm chart using the k8s.helm.v3.Chart resource. The chart is specified by name, and the repository from where it can be fetched is provided.

    • Finally, we export the kubeconfig of the cluster which you may use to interact with your cluster using kubectl or any Kubernetes dashboard.

    Replace placeholders like <helm-repo-url> with the actual information for your Helm chart sources.

    To apply this program, save it in a file named index.ts, and then run pulumi up from your command line in the same directory as the file. This will initiate the provisioning of the AKS cluster and, once successful, the deployment of the devlake Helm chart onto the cluster.
