1. Deploy the simple-grafana helm chart on Kubernetes


    To deploy the simple-grafana Helm chart on Kubernetes using Pulumi, we'll need to set up a few things first. We will:

    1. Import the necessary Pulumi packages and setup the program to run in Typescript.
    2. Use the Chart resource from the @pulumi/kubernetes package, which allows us to deploy Helm charts in a Kubernetes cluster.
    3. Configure the Chart resource with the specifics for simple-grafana chart, such as the chart name, version, and any custom values you might want to override.

    Below is a TypeScript program that demonstrates how this can be accomplished:

    import * as k8s from '@pulumi/kubernetes'; // Create an instance of the `Chart` class, which wraps the `simple-grafana` helm chart. // We specify the release name, the chart repository, and the version. const grafanaChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart('simple-grafana', { // Assuming `simple-grafana` is the chart name and is available in the default Helm chart repository. // If your chart is in a different repository or has a different name, adjust these values accordingly. chart: 'simple-grafana', version: '1.0.0', // Replace with the actual chart version you wish to deploy // Optionally, you can provide custom values to override the default ones specified in the `values.yaml` // of the chart. For `simple-grafana`, you would configure it based on the documentation of the chart. // For example: values: { // Custom values go here. The following is just an example, and you should replace it // with the actual configurations that you need. adminUser: 'admin', adminPassword: 'strongpassword', service: { type: 'LoadBalancer', }, }, }); // Export the public URL for Grafana service. // We assume that the service type is LoadBalancer and your Kubernetes cluster supports LoadBalancer services. // Here, we use the `.getResource` method to access the service created by the helm chart and export its URL. export const grafanaUrl = grafanaChart.getResourceProperty('v1/Service', 'simple-grafana', 'status') .apply(status => status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].ip || status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].hostname);

    Before running this program, ensure that you have set up the following:

    • Pulumi CLI installed and authenticated.
    • Kubernetes cluster running and kubectl configured to connect to it.
    • Helm chart reference – you must know the Helm chart details like its version and the custom values it expects.

    To run the Pulumi program, navigate to the directory containing the index.ts file which includes the program code above and:

    1. Run pulumi up to preview and deploy the changes.
    2. Confirm the deployment by selecting yes.

    After the deployment:

    • The program will output the public URL of the Grafana service if it's exposed using a LoadBalancer service.

    Please remember to replace the version and values with the ones applicable to your simple-grafana Helm chart. The values field should match the settings that simple-grafana chart accepts for customization.

    You can find Helm chart specific configurations on the chart's documentation page or by inspecting the values.yaml file of the Helm chart. Adjust the values in the values attribute accordingly to fit your requirements.
