1. Deploy the postgres-observability helm chart on Rancher


    To deploy the postgres-observability Helm chart on Rancher, you'll need to follow these steps:

    1. Setting Up: Ensure you have Pulumi installed, a Pulumi account set up, and the Rancher2 provider configured in Pulumi.

    2. Initialization: Start by creating a new Pulumi project and stack. You need to choose a project name, runtime (typescript), and cloud (Rancher2).

    3. Writing the Code: Write a Pulumi program in TypeScript that uses the Rancher2 provider to deploy the postgres-observability Helm chart.

    4. Running the Program: Use Pulumi command-line tools to deploy your infrastructure by running pulumi up.

    5. Monitoring Deployment: Check the status of your deployment and observe the resources created.

    Below is a detailed TypeScript Pulumi program to accomplish this:

    import * as rancher2 from "@pulumi/rancher2"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; // Step 1: // Replace `rancherClusterId` with the appropriate Rancher Cluster ID where you want to deploy the Helm chart. const rancherClusterId = "your-rancher-cluster-id"; // Step 2: // Create a Rancher project dedicated to the PostgreSQL observability deployment. const observabilityProject = new rancher2.Project("postgres-observability-project", { clusterId: rancherClusterId, name: "PostgresObservability", description: "A project to host Postgres observability tools", }); // Step 3: // Create a Kubernetes provider that targets the Rancher Kubernetes cluster. const k8sProvider = new k8s.Provider("k8s", { kubeconfig: observabilityProject.kubeconfig.apply(kubeconfig => kubeconfig), }); // Step 4: // Deploy the postgres-observability Helm chart. // Note: You must replace `chartVersion`, `helmRepoUrl`, and `helmChartName` with correct values for the postgres-observability chart. const chartVersion = "x.y.z"; // Replace with the actual chart version const helmRepoUrl = "http://helm-repo.url"; // Replace with the Helm repository URL const helmChartName = "postgres-observability";// Replace with the correct Helm chart name const postgresObservabilityChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("postgres-observability", { chart: helmChartName, version: chartVersion, fetchOpts: { repo: helmRepoUrl, }, }, { provider: k8sProvider }); // Step 5: // Export any necessary resources that can be used to access the deployed chart. export const projectDisplayName = observabilityProject.defaultProjectQuota.apply(quota => quota.projectLimit["display-name"]); export const kubeconfig = observabilityProject.kubeconfig; // You can run this Pulumi program by running `pulumi up` in your CLI. // The command will show you a preview of the resources that will be deployed. // If everything looks correct, you can proceed to confirm the deployment.


    1. We import the necessary Pulumi packages: rancher2 for interacting with Rancher, kubernetes to handle Kubernetes resources, and pulumi core for configurations.

    2. We create a Rancher project where our Helm chart will be deployed using rancher2.Project.

    3. We use the k8s.Provider to tell Pulumi to target our newly created Rancher Kubernetes cluster by passing the kubeconfig from the observabilityProject.

    4. We declare a Helm chart resource using k8s.helm.v3.Chart, which will install the postgres-observability Helm chart in the Rancher cluster. The exact version and repository of the chart need to be specified.

    5. We export the display name
