1. Deploy the puppet-forge helm chart on Opensshift


    To deploy the Puppet Forge Helm chart on an OpenShift cluster using Pulumi, we'll utilize the kubernetes package which provides a Helm Chart resource—in particular, kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart. This allows us to declare a Helm chart as part of our Pulumi infrastructure as code.

    Helm charts are packages of pre-configured Kubernetes resources that you can deploy as a unit. Assuming you have a Helm chart for Puppet Forge, and that your OpenShift cluster is already up and running, deploying the chart requires configuring the Pulumi Kubernetes provider to communicate with your OpenShift cluster and then declaring a Chart resource with the appropriate settings.

    Here's a high-level overview of what we need to do:

    1. Set up cluster connection: Ensure that the KUBECONFIG environment variable is set, or use the kubeconfig configuration option for the Kubernetes provider to point Pulumi to the correct Kubernetes cluster.

    2. Create a new Pulumi project: If you don't already have one, you need to create a new Pulumi project and select the associated stack.

    3. Define the Helm Chart resource: Specify the details of the Puppet Forge Helm chart that you want to deploy within the Pulumi program.

    Below is a TypeScript program that demonstrates how to use Pulumi to deploy a Helm chart to OpenShift:

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Define the Puppet Forge Helm chart. // Replace `repo` with the URL of the Helm repository that contains the Puppet Forge chart, // and `version` with the chart version you want to deploy. const puppetForgeChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("puppet-forge", { repo: "https://example.com/helm-charts", // Replace with the actual Helm chart repository URL. chart: "puppet-forge", version: "1.0.0", // Replace with the actual chart version. namespace: "default" // Specify the namespace in which to deploy the chart. Change this as needed. }); // Export the resources that the chart will create. // This is not a complete list of possible resources, but it gives an idea of how you can obtain information // about the resources created by the Helm chart. export const serviceNames = puppetForgeChart.getResourceProperty("v1/Service", "puppet-forge", "metadata").apply(m => m.name); export const deploymentNames = puppetForgeChart.getResourceProperty("apps/v1/Deployment", "puppet-forge", "metadata").apply(m => m.name);

    This Pulumi program creates an instance of a Helm chart and sets it up to deploy the Puppet Forge Helm chart. The repo property should be the URL of your Helm repository, and version the specific chart version you want to install.

    Please note that for this to work, you would need access to an OpenShift cluster and the Helm chart for Puppet Forge should be available in a Helm repository.

    To execute this program with Pulumi, follow the standard process:

    1. Ensure Pulumi CLI is installed and set up.
    2. Ensure you have kubectl access to your OpenShift cluster.
    3. Run pulumi up to apply the configuration and deploy the chart.

    Keep in mind that you should replace placeholder values for repo, chart, and version with those specific to the Puppet Forge Helm chart you're deploying. Make sure your Helm repository is accessible from within your OpenShift cluster network.
