1. Deploy the jira-service-desk-operator helm chart on Linode Kubernetes Engine


    To deploy the Jira Service Desk Operator using Helm on Linode Kubernetes Engine (LKE), you'll be leveraging the Pulumi Kubernetes provider and Helm support within it. Helm charts are a great way to package and deploy Kubernetes applications. Pulumi's Helm support allows you to manage Helm releases as part of your infrastructure as code in a Pulumi program.

    Before diving into the code, ensure you've performed the following prerequisites:

    1. Have an active Linode account and a Kubernetes cluster set up in the Linode.
    2. Have kubectl configured to interact with your Linode Kubernetes cluster.
    3. Have Pulumi installed and set up.
    4. Have Helm installed.

    Below, I'll write a Pulumi program in TypeScript that will:

    • Configure Pulumi to use the Kubernetes provider to deploy to your LKE cluster.
    • Create a Helm Release for the Jira Service Desk Operator.

    Please note that the Jira Service Desk Operator Helm chart needs to be available in a Helm repository.

    Here is the TypeScript Pulumi program:

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Step 1: Provide the name of your Linode Kubernetes Engine cluster const clusterName = "your-lke-cluster-name"; // Step 2: Optionally, set up the Linode Kubernetes cluster configuration // This step assumes you have already configured kubectl to connect to your Linode cluster // For example, if you have a kubeconfig file, you can use it as follows: const kubeconfig = `path-to-your-kubeconfig-file`; // Initialize a Kubernetes provider configured with the kubeconfig from Linode const provider = new k8s.Provider("lke-k8s-provider", { kubeconfig: kubeconfig, }); // Step 3: Deploy the Jira Service Desk Operator Helm chart const jiraServiceDeskOperatorChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("jira-service-desk-operator", { // You must replace 'chart-repo-url' with the actual Helm repository URL where the Jira Service Desk chart is hosted. repo: "chart-repo-url", chart: "jira-service-desk-operator", // Specify the namespace where the operator should be deployed; create it if it doesn't exist. namespace: "jira-namespace", // If you have specific values you wish to override in the Helm chart, specify them here. // For instance: // values: { // someValue: "override-value", // }, version: "chart-version", // Replace with the version of the chart you want to deploy }, { provider: provider, // Use our configured Linode provider }); // Export the status of the deployed Helm chart export const jiraServiceDeskOperatorStatus = jiraServiceDeskOperatorChart.status;

    Here is a step-by-step explanation of what the program does:

    1. Initializes the Pulumi Kubernetes provider with the configuration for your specific Linode Kubernetes cluster. This allows Pulumi to communicate with your LKE cluster.
    2. Creates a Helm release using the k8s.helm.v3.Chart class, providing it with the chart name, version, and repository, along with any specific settings you want to override.
    3. Exports the status of the Helm release, allowing you to see its deployment status through the Pulumi CLI.

    Remember to replace placeholder values like your-lke-cluster-name, path-to-your-kubeconfig-file, and chart-repo-url with actual values that correspond to your Linode cluster and the Jira Service Desk Operator Helm chart.

    To run this Pulumi program, save it to a file called index.ts, then execute the following commands:

    • pulumi stack init dev to create a new stack,
    • pulumi up to deploy your stack.

    This will prompt Pulumi to perform the deployment, and you will see the proposed changes before confirming.

    Make sure to review the official Pulumi Kubernetes provider documentation and the Helm Chart resource documentation for more detailed information.
