1. Deploy the testkube-operator helm chart on Opensshift


    Deploying the testkube-operator Helm chart on OpenShift involves creating a Pulumi program that defines the necessary Kubernetes resources, using the Pulumi Kubernetes provider. The program will set up the Helm chart within an existing OpenShift cluster.

    Before you start, make sure you have access to an OpenShift cluster and have configured Pulumi with the appropriate credentials to connect to the cluster.

    Here's a step-by-step guide, followed by a Pulumi TypeScript program that demonstrates how to deploy the testkube-operator Helm chart:

    Step 1: Installation Prerequisites

    • Install Pulumi: Follow the instructions from the Pulumi installation guide.
    • Install Node.js and the npm package manager to be able to run the Pulumi TypeScript program.
    • Set up the Kubernetes and OpenShift CLI tools (kubectl and oc) and configure them to communicate with your OpenShift cluster.

    Step 2: Set Up Your Pulumi Program

    • Create a new directory for your Pulumi project.
    • Inside that directory, run pulumi new typescript to create a new Pulumi TypeScript project.
    • When prompted, log in to the Pulumi service or specify a local state storage.

    Step 3: Define the testkube-operator Helm Chart in the Pulumi Program

    • Use the kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart class from Pulumi's Kubernetes provider to define the Helm chart you want to deploy.

    Step 4: Deploy the Chart

    • Run pulumi up to preview and deploy your changes to the OpenShift cluster.

    Below is the Pulumi TypeScript program that deploys the testkube-operator:

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Name of the Helm chart const chartName = "testkube-operator"; // Create an instance of the testkube-operator Helm chart const testkubeOperator = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart(chartName, { // Specify the chart repository and name chart: "testkube-operator", repo: "https://charts.kubeshop.io", // Specify the version of the chart to deploy version: "1.0.0", // Replace with the actual version you need // Add any custom values you want to override in the chart values: { // Custom values to override default chart values (Example) // Example configuration, this will vary depending on the Helm chart's available options }, // Ensure you target the correct namespace, if not default namespace: "default", // Additional options if needed fetchOpts: { // Configure specific options for Helm chart fetching here if necessary }, }); // Optional: Exporting a value that can be useful export const chartStatus = testkubeOperator.status;

    This Pulumi setup creates a new instance of the testkube-operator Helm chart, specifying the chart version and any necessary configuration values. If you have namespaces or any particular customizations for OpenShift, modify the values and namespace properties accordingly.

    After you've written your program, run pulumi up in your terminal within the project directory. Pulumi will perform a preview of the changes and ask for confirmation before applying them. Once confirmed, Pulumi will deploy the testkube-operator Helm chart to your OpenShift cluster.

    Step 5: Verify the Deployment

    After Pulumi has applied the changes, you can verify the deployment using the oc and kubectl commands:

    • oc get pods: Lists the pods and verifies that the testkube-operator pods are running.
    • oc get deployment: Checks if the deployment for the testkube-operator appears and is running the correct number of replicas.

    Remember that Helm charts, Kubernetes, and Pulumi setups can vary widely; this program assumes a generic use case. You may need to adjust the values and configurations based on your specific requirements and the configurations of the testkube-operator Helm chart.
