1. Deploy the redpanda-operator helm chart on Opensshift


    To deploy the redpanda-operator Helm chart on OpenShift using Pulumi, you'll need to write a Pulumi program in TypeScript. This program will use the @pulumi/kubernetes package which allows for the management of Kubernetes resources, including deploying Helm charts.

    Below is a Pulumi program that accomplishes this. The program follows these steps:

    1. Import the necessary Pulumi and Kubernetes packages.
    2. Create a Chart resource representing the redpanda-operator Helm chart.
    3. Specify the chart name, version, and any custom values required for its deployment.
    4. Target the appropriate namespace within your OpenShift cluster where the Helm chart will be deployed.

    Before you run this program, make sure that you have configured Pulumi to use your OpenShift cluster as the Kubernetes provider. You should ensure that your Pulumi CLI is authenticated against your OpenShift cluster and that you have the @pulumi/kubernetes package installed in your project.

    Here's how you would write the TypeScript program:

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Define the settings for deploying the redpanda-operator chart. const chartName = "redpanda-operator"; const chartVersion = "0.1.0"; // Specify the correct chart version you wish to deploy. const chartRepo = "https://charts.vectorized.io/"; // The repository URL where the chart is located. const namespace = "default"; // Change this to the namespace where you want to deploy the operator. const redpandaOperatorChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart(chartName, { chart: chartName, version: chartVersion, fetchOpts: { repo: chartRepo }, // If the redpanda-operator requires custom values, specify them here. // e.g. values: { "key": "value" }, namespace: namespace, }, { provider: new k8s.Provider("openshift", { kubeconfig: "<your-kubeconfig-here>" }) }); // Export the Chart's status export const redpandaChartStatus = redpandaOperatorChart.status;

    In this program:

    • We import the Kubernetes package from Pulumi.
    • We specify the Helm chart details: name, version, and repository where it is located.
    • We create a new instance of Chart, which corresponds to a Helm chart in the Kubernetes cluster.
    • We specify a custom Kubernetes provider pointing to your OpenShift cluster by providing the kubeconfig. You'll need to replace <your-kubeconfig-here> with the path to your own kubeconfig file.
    • An optional values field is commented out as an example if you need to pass any custom values to the Helm chart.

    Make sure to replace the placeholders (<your-kubeconfig-here>, 0.1.0, and the relevant namespace) with actual values appropriate for your deployment.

    Lastly, run this Pulumi program with the standard Pulumi commands:

    pulumi up

    This command will initiate the deployment. Pulumi will provide an output of the resources it will create and ask for confirmation before proceeding. After confirming, the redpanda-operator Helm chart will be deployed to your OpenShift cluster.
