1. Deploy the cloudbees-core helm chart on Kubernetes


    Deploying a Helm chart on a Kubernetes cluster using Pulumi can be done using the kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart resource. This resource allows you to provision Helm charts from various repositories in a declarative manner as part of your infrastructure code.

    To deploy the cloudbees-core Helm chart, you would typically do the following:

    1. Ensure you have a Kubernetes cluster to deploy to. For this example, we'll assume that you already have a Kubernetes cluster configured and that your kubeconfig file is set up correctly to communicate with the cluster.

    2. Add the necessary Pulumi package for handling Kubernetes resources. We're going to use the @pulumi/kubernetes package.

    3. Use the Chart resource to deploy the cloudbees-core chart. You'll need to specify the repository URL if the chart is not in the default Helm chart repository.

    Below is a full Pulumi TypeScript program that deploys the cloudbees-core Helm chart onto a Kubernetes cluster:

    import * as k8s from '@pulumi/kubernetes'; // Create an instance of the Chart resource to deploy the cloudbees-core Helm chart. // You will need to specify the actual repository if cloudbees-core isn't part of the standard Helm repo. const cloudbeesCoreChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart('cloudbees-core', { chart: 'cloudbees-core', // Uncomment and specify the repo URL if needed. // repo: 'URL-TO-CLOUDBEES-HELM-CHART', version: 'VERSION-OF-CLOUDBEES-CHART', // Replace with the desired chart version // You can customize the values for the chart as per your requirements // For example, if you need to set a custom admin password, you can do so like this: // values: { // AdminPassword: 'YourStrongPassword', // }, }); // Export the base URL for the CloudBees Core instance once it is provisioned. // You would extract this from the Kubernetes Services, Ingress, or other resources that the Helm chart creates, // depending on how cloudbees-core is configured to provide its endpoint. export const cloudbeesCoreUrl = 'http://<your-cloudbees-service>'; // Note: '<your-cloudbees-service>' should be replaced with actual DNS name or IP // address of the service that gets created for CloudBees Core, post-deployment.

    In the above code:

    • We import the @pulumi/kubernetes package which contains the helpers for interacting with Kubernetes within a Pulumi program.
    • We create a new Helm chart instance cloudbeesCoreChart using the k8s.helm.v3.Chart resource from Pulumi’s Kubernetes provider. This will install the cloudbees-core Helm chart onto the Kubernetes cluster.
    • We're exporting a placeholder URL for the cloudbees-core application which you would replace with the actual endpoint once the chart is deployed. The endpoint is usually provided by an Ingress object or a Service of type LoadBalancer that is created by the Helm chart.

    Before running this Pulumi code, you'll need to install Pulumi and set up your Kubernetes cluster. Once done, you can execute this code using the Pulumi CLI with the following commands:

    1. Initialize a new Pulumi project:
      pulumi new typescript
    2. Install the required dependencies:
      npm install @pulumi/kubernetes
    3. Place the code into index.ts in your Pulumi project directory.
    4. Preview the deployment with:
      pulumi preview
    5. If everything looks good, deploy the chart to your cluster with:
      pulumi up

    Remember to check the values field in the Helm chart resource to customize any configurations specific to cloudbees-core according to your needs.
