1. Deploy the pilemall helm chart on Rancher


    When deploying a Helm chart on a Rancher-managed Kubernetes cluster using Pulumi, you'll typically follow these steps:

    1. Set Up the Rancher Cluster: Ensure that the Rancher cluster is up and running. If you don't have an existing cluster, you can use Pulumi to create one using the appropriate provider for your environment (e.g., aws, azure, gcp, rke, rke2).

    2. Configure Rancher Provider: Configure the Pulumi Rancher2 provider with the necessary credentials. This allows Pulumi to communicate with your Rancher server to manage resources.

    3. Deploy Helm Chart: Use Pulumi to create a Helm release resource that refers to the pilemall Helm chart. This will instruct Rancher to deploy the chart to your Kubernetes cluster.

    In this Pulumi TypeScript program, we'll assume that you have already set up a Kubernetes cluster managed by Rancher and have the necessary access credentials. The following Pulumi program will deploy a Helm chart called pilemall:

    import * as rancher2 from "@pulumi/rancher2"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Step 1: Set up the Rancher2 provider with your Rancher server's access URL and a token key // Replace the placeholders with the actual URL of your Rancher server and the token key. const rancher = new rancher2.Provider("rancher", { apiUrl: "https://your-rancher-server-url", tokenKey: "your-rancher-server-token-key", }); // Step 2: Using the k8s provider, deploy the Helm chart // This part of the program will create a Helm release for the 'pilemall' chart. // Change the repository URL to the one where the 'pilemall' chart is located. const pilemallChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Release("pilemall-helm-chart", { chart: "pilemall", version: "1.0.0", // Replace with the actual chart version you intend to deploy repositoryOpts: { repo: "http://charts.example.com/", // Replace with the actual repository URL }, }, { provider: rancher }); // Export the name of the release and the version of the chart deployed export const releaseName = pilemallChart.name; export const chartVersion = pilemallChart.version;

    Before running the program, make sure you've installed the necessary Pulumi packages by running npm install or yarn add for @pulumi/rancher2 and @pulumi/kubernetes.

    Please replace placeholder values (https://your-rancher-server-url, your-rancher-server-token-key, http://charts.example.com/, and the chart version) with appropriate values for your setup.

    This program performs the following actions:

    • Imports the required Pulumi packages for Rancher2 and Kubernetes.
    • Configures the Rancher2 provider with your Rancher server URL and token key, allowing Pulumi to communicate with your Rancher server.
    • Creates a Helm release of the pilemall chart from the specified Helm repository using the Kubernetes package. The release is named pilemall-helm-chart.
    • Exports the release name and chart version, so they can be easily retrieved from the Pulumi stack's output.

    To deploy this Helm chart using Pulumi, save the program in a TypeScript file (e.g., index.ts). You then run pulumi up in your terminal to initiate the deployment. Pulumi will communicate with Rancher to deploy the specified chart on your Kubernetes cluster.

    The specifics of configuring the Helm chart (e.g., custom values, namespace) would depend on the Helm chart's available settings and your particular requirements. If the pilemall Helm chart requires specific configuration values, you would add these to the values property of the Release resource.
