1. Deploy the nats-streaming helm chart on Opensshift


    To deploy the NATS Streaming Helm chart on an OpenShift cluster using Pulumi, you need to write a Pulumi program in TypeScript that utilizes the @pulumi/kubernetes package. This package provides you with classes and functions that are used to interact with a Kubernetes cluster, including the ability to deploy Helm charts.

    Here's how you can create a Pulumi program to deploy the NATS Streaming Helm chart:


    • Ensure that you have an OpenShift cluster up and running.
    • You need to have kubectl configured to connect to your OpenShift cluster.
    • Pulumi CLI and @pulumi/kubernetes package should be installed.


    1. Define the Helm chart for NATS Streaming:

      • Import the necessary Pulumi module for Kubernetes.
      • Use the Chart class to define the Helm chart you want to install.
      • Specify the necessary parameters such as repo, chart, version, and any custom values you would like to provide to the Helm chart.
    2. Deploy the Helm chart:

      • Create a Pulumi stack that represents your deployment.
      • Inside the stack, instantiate the Chart class with the relevant parameters for the NATS Streaming Helm chart.
      • Call pulumi up to deploy the Helm chart to your OpenShift cluster.

    Example Pulumi Program

    Below is a detailed example of a Pulumi program in TypeScript:

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Define the NATS Streaming Helm chart. // We are assuming that the NATS Streaming chart is available in the Helm repository. // Replace `chartVersion` with the version you want to deploy. const chartName = "nats-streaming"; const chartVersion = "x.y.z"; // replace with the desired chart version const natsStreamingHelmChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart(chartName, { chart: chartName, version: chartVersion, fetchOpts: { repo: "https://nats-io.github.io/k8s/helm/charts/", // official NATS Helm repo }, namespace: "nats-io", // the namespace where you want to deploy the chart // Specify any custom values needed for the NATS Streaming Helm chart // values: { ... }, }); // When executed, this program will apply the Helm Chart using the provided url, // effectively deploying NATS Streaming to your OpenShift cluster in the 'nats-io' namespace. // You can supply additional configuration parameters within the `values` prop as needed. // To deploy, simply run `pulumi up` in the same directory as this file.

    Remember to replace x.y.z with the specific version of the NATS Streaming Helm chart you wish to deploy.

    Pulumi Stack

    When you run the Pulumi program, it creates a Pulumi stack. This stack represents the state of your cloud resources and manages the lifecycle of your cloud infrastructure.

    Running the Pulumi Program

    With the above program written in a file (e.g., index.ts), you would typically run pulumi stack init if it's your first time deploying with Pulumi, followed by pulumi up in your terminal to perform the actual deployment.


    This Pulumi program will deploy the NATS Streaming Helm chart to your OpenShift cluster. Pulumi tracks the state of your deployment and allows you to update or delete your infrastructure as code. The Kubernetes module within Pulumi understands how to communicate with your Kubernetes cluster and manage resources.

    If you would like to customize the NATS Streaming deployment or configure more advanced settings, you can modify the values property in the Helm chart definition. The values property accepts an object that represents the configuration values you would normally find in a Helm chart's values.yaml file.
