1. Deploy the vault-token-injector helm chart on Rancher


    To deploy the vault-token-injector Helm chart on a Rancher-managed Kubernetes cluster, you'll first need a configured Rancher environment. Pulumi provides a collection of libraries for Rancher, allowing you to interact with it in a programmatic way using infrastructure as code principles.

    Below is a TypeScript program using Pulumi's Rancher 2 provider to deploy a Helm chart to a Rancher-managed Kubernetes cluster. The program will perform the following actions:

    1. Create a CatalogV2 resource, which represents a Helm chart repository where Pulumi can find the vault-token-injector chart. We'll assume the chart repository exists at a URL that you need to provide.
    2. Use the helm.v3.Chart class from Pulumi's Kubernetes provider to deploy that chart to your cluster.

    Make sure you have already:

    • Installed Pulumi CLI and set up Pulumi in your system.
    • Configured access to your Rancher instance using rancher2 provider.

    You would replace YOUR_HELM_REPO_URL with the actual URL of the Helm chart repository containing the vault-token-injector chart, and YOUR_CLUSTER_ID with the cluster ID where you want to deploy the chart.

    import * as rancher2 from "@pulumi/rancher2"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Replace these values with the appropriate URLs and identifiers const helmRepoUrl = "YOUR_HELM_REPO_URL"; const rancherClusterId = "YOUR_CLUSTER_ID"; const catalog = new rancher2.CatalogV2("vault-token-injector-catalog", { // The Helm chart repository URL url: helmRepoUrl, // Cluster ID where the catalog should be deployed clusterId: rancherClusterId, }); // Deploy the vault-token-injector Helm chart const vaultTokenInjectorChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("vault-token-injector", { chart: "vault-token-injector", // Specify the version of the chart if needed // version: "1.2.3", fetchOpts: { // Reference to the catalog we've just created repo: catalog.url.apply(url => url), }, values: { // Any values you need to provide for the vault-token-injector chart // apiKey: "YOUR_API_KEY", }, }, { provider: new k8s.Provider("k8s-provider", { kubeconfig: rancher2.getClusterKubeConfig(rancherClusterId).apply(res => res.kubeConfig) }) }); // Export any necessary resources, such as the chart's status or endpoints export const vaultTokenInjectorChartStatus = vaultTokenInjectorChart.status;

    This Pulumi program creates a CatalogV2 object within Rancher to reference the Helm repository. Then, it deploys the vault-token-injector chart from that repository to your Kubernetes cluster. It also defines a Kubernetes provider sourced from Rancher cluster's kubeconfig, which the Helm chart resource uses to communicate with the Kubernetes API server.

    Customizations to the deployed chart may be done through the values property, which allows you to override default settings with your own values. The version property can be used to pin to a specific version of the Helm chart.

    After running this Pulumi program with the pulumi up command, the vault-token-injector Helm chart will be deployed to your specified cluster managed by Rancher. You may also observe its status through the exported variable vaultTokenInjectorChartStatus. Remember to ensure the Helm repository URL and cluster ID are correctly specified.
