1. Deploy the orchard-cms helm chart on Opensshift


    To deploy the Orchard CMS Helm Chart on an OpenShift cluster using Pulumi, we will be using the Helm Chart resource from Pulumi's Kubernetes provider. Below is a step-by-step guide and a Pulumi TypeScript program that demonstrates how to do this:

    Step 1: Ensure Prerequisites

    Before running the Pulumi program, ensure you have the following prerequisites:

    • An OpenShift cluster set up and running.
    • kubectl configured to connect to your OpenShift cluster.
    • Pulumi CLI installed.
    • Helm, the package manager for Kubernetes, installed.
    • Node.js and npm installed to run Pulumi programs in TypeScript.

    Step 2: Set Up the Pulumi Project

    Create a new Pulumi project:

    pulumi new typescript

    Step 3: Write the Pulumi Program

    Here is the TypeScript program that deploys the Orchard CMS Helm Chart to an OpenShift cluster. We are using the kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart class from the Kubernetes provider to accomplish this. Insert this program in your index.ts file in the Pulumi project directory:

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Create a Kubernetes provider that targets the OpenShift cluster. const openshiftProvider = new k8s.Provider("openshiftK8s", { kubeconfig: "<your-openshift-kubeconfig>" }); // Deploy Orchard CMS using the Helm Chart const orchardCmsChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("orchard-cms", { chart: "orchard-cms", version: "<chart-version>", // Specify the version of the chart you want to deploy fetchOpts: { repo: "http://<helm-chart-repository-url>" // Specify the URL of the Helm chart repository }, namespace: "orchard-cms-namespace", // Specify the namespace to deploy into, this should be an existing namespace }, { provider: openshiftProvider }); // Export the URL to Access Orchard CMS export const orchardCmsUrl = orchardCmsChart.getResourceProperty("v1/Service", "orchard-cms-orchard-cms", "status") .apply(status => status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].hostname);

    Replace <your-openshift-kubeconfig>, <chart-version>, and http://<helm-chart-repository-url> with your cluster's kubeconfig file content, the desired chart version, and the Helm chart repository URL respectively.

    Make sure the namespace you want to deploy the chart to (specified as orchard-cms-namespace in the example) already exists in your cluster or update the namespace accordingly.

    Step 4: Execute the Pulumi Program

    From your command line inside the Pulumi project directory, execute the following commands:

    pulumi up

    This command will provision the resources defined in the Pulumi program. It will show you a preview of the proposed changes and ask for confirmation before making any changes to your cluster.

    Step 5: Access Orchard CMS

    After the deployment, you can access the URL of the deployed Orchard CMS using the output export defined in your Pulumi program.

    The orchardCmsUrl is the external endpoint through which you can access your Orchard CMS installation once it's fully deployed and running within your OpenShift cluster.

    Please note:

    • Helm Charts can have multiple values that may need to be configured according to your requirements. You can use the values: field within the Chart resource to provide these configuration options.
    • Ensure that the Helm repository you are using has the 'orchard-cms' chart. If you are not sure about this, you may need to search for or create the Orchard CMS Helm chart.
    • The Helm chart version and the repository URL are placeholders and need to be replaced with the appropriate values for the Orchard CMS Helm chart you intend to use.
