1. Deploy the forms-catalogue helm chart on Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)


    Deploying a Helm chart to an Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) cluster involves several steps. We will need to create the AKS cluster and then deploy the Helm chart to it.

    In this Pulumi program, we will be using the following resources:

    • azure-native.hybridcontainerservice.ProvisionedCluster: To create an AKS cluster.
    • kubernetes.helm.sh/v3.Chart: To deploy the Helm chart onto the AKS cluster.

    Below is the Pulumi TypeScript program that achieves this:

    import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; import * as azureNative from "@pulumi/azure-native"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Create an Azure Resource Group const resourceGroup = new azureNative.resources.ResourceGroup("resourceGroup", { // You can set your resource group name and location here resourceName: "myResourceGroup", location: "WestUS", }); // Create an AKS cluster const cluster = new azureNative.hybridcontainerservice.ProvisionedCluster("myAKSCluster", { resourceGroupName: resourceGroup.name, location: resourceGroup.location, // Define the required properties for your AKS cluster properties: { kubernetesVersion: "1.18.14", // Specify the desired Kubernetes version dnsPrefix: "myakscluster", // Replace with your DNS prefix agentPoolProfiles: [{ count: 2, // Number of agent nodes vmSize: "Standard_DS2_v2", // VM size for the nodes osType: "Linux", // Operating System mode: "System", // AgentPoolMode }], linuxProfile: { adminUsername: "azureuser", ssh: { publicKeys: [{ keyData: "ssh-rsa AAAAB3N...", // Replace with your SSH public key }], }, }, servicePrincipalProfile: { clientId: "xxxxxxx", // Replace with your client/service principal ID secret: "xxxxxxx", // Replace with your service principal secret }, }, }); // Get AKS credentials const aksCreds = pulumi.all({resourceGroupName: resourceGroup.name, resourceName: cluster.name}).apply(name => azureNative.hybridcontainerservice.listManagedClusterUserCredentials({ resourceGroupName: name.resourceGroupName, resourceName: name.resourceName, }), ); // Extract the Kubeconfig from the response const kubeconfig = aksCreds.kubeconfigs[0].value.apply(c => Buffer.from(c, "base64").toString()); // Create a Kubernetes provider instance using the kubeconfig const k8sProvider = new k8s.Provider("k8s", { kubeconfig: kubeconfig, }); // Deploy the "forms-catalogue" Helm chart into the AKS cluster const formsCatalogue = new k8s.helm.sh.v3.Chart("forms-catalogue", { chart: "forms-catalogue", // Replace with the correct chart name if different version: "1.0.0", // Specify the chart version you want to deploy // Specify any custom values for your chart values: { // Example values - change them to suit your application's needs service: { type: "LoadBalancer", }, }, }, { provider: k8sProvider }); // Export the Kubernetes cluster name and the Kubeconfig export const kubeconfigOut = pulumi.secret(kubeconfig); // Masked for security export const clusterName = cluster.name;


    1. We start by importing the necessary Pulumi and Azure SDKs.
    2. A Resource Group is created where all the Azure resources will reside.
    3. We then proceed to declare an AKS cluster with the desired properties, such as the Kubernetes version, node size, and count.
    4. We retrieve the AKS cluster credentials using the listManagedClusterUserCredentials function.
    5. The credentials obtained are used to create an instance of the Kubernetes provider, which establishes the connection to your AKS cluster.
    6. We create a new Helm Chart resource specifying the chart we want to deploy.
    7. Finally, we export some outputs, such as the cluster name and the generated Kubeconfig, which allows you to interact with your AKS cluster with tools like kubectl.

    This program will create an Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) cluster and deploy the specified Helm chart onto that cluster. Replace the placeholders with your details, such as the SSH key, service principal credentials, the Helm chart name, and any other Helm values specific to your deployment.

    Please ensure your Pulumi stack is correctly configured for your Azure account and that you've installed the Pulumi CLI and initialized your project. After you set this up, you can run pulumi up to execute this program with Pulumi.
