1. Deploy the flyteagent helm chart on Azure Managed Openshift Service


    To deploy a Helm chart on an Azure Managed OpenShift Service (ARO), you need to follow several steps:

    1. Provision an Azure Red Hat OpenShift cluster if you don't already have one. This involves creating the cluster and configuring it for use.

    2. Install Helm on your local machine or wherever you intend to deploy the chart from.

    3. Deploy the Helm chart to your OpenShift cluster.

    For the first step, I will create a Pulumi program that provisions an ARO cluster. After that, I'll provide a brief guide on how to install Helm and deploy the flyteagent helm chart onto the OpenShift cluster.

    Here is a Pulumi TypeScript program that provisions the necessary resources for an Azure Managed OpenShift Service:

    import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; import * as openshift from "@pulumi/azure-native/redhatopenshift"; // Create an Azure Red Hat OpenShift cluster const clusterName = "myAROCluster"; const resourceGroupName = "myResourceGroup"; const openshiftCluster = new openshift.OpenShiftCluster(clusterName, { resourceName: clusterName, resourceGroupName: resourceGroupName, location: "eastus", // Choose an appropriate Azure location here clusterProfile: { domain: "example-domain", version: "4.6", // Specify the OpenShift version resourceGroupId: `/subscriptions/${process.env.AZURE_SUBSCRIPTION_ID}/resourceGroups/${resourceGroupName}`, pullSecret: "<pullSecret>", // Provide your OpenShift pull secret }, masterProfile: { vmSize: "Standard_D8s_v3", // Choose appropriate VM size based on your needs subnetId: "<masterSubnetId>", // Replace with your master subnet ID }, networkProfile: { podCidr: "", serviceCidr: "", }, workerProfiles: [{ name: "worker", count: 3, // Desired number of worker nodes vmSize: "Standard_D4s_v3", // Choose appropriate VM size based on your needs subnetId: "<workerSubnetId>", // Replace with your worker subnet ID }], apiserverProfile: { visibility: "Public", // Change to "Private" if necessary }, ingressProfiles: [{ name: "default", visibility: "Public", // Change to "Private" if necessary }], }); // Export the cluster's API server URL export const openshiftApiServerUrl = openshiftCluster.apiserverProfile.url;

    This program sets up the resources for an ARO cluster. Make sure to replace placeholders (like <masterSubnetId>, <workerSubnetId>, and <pullSecret>) with actual values before running the program.


    • Install Pulumi and set it up: Pulumi Installation Guide
    • Azure CLI installed and logged in.
    • Pulumi configuration set up for Azure with your credentials: Azure Setup Guide
    • OpenShift pull secret obtained from the Red Hat OpenShift Cluster Manager.

    To deploy the chart:

    1. Install Helm if it's not already installed: Helm Quickstart Guide.
    2. Ensure Helm has access to the Kubernetes/OpenShift API server. For OpenShift, you might need to log in using the oc CLI.
    3. Use Helm to install the flyteagent chart. You can use a Helm repository that includes the chart, or the direct URL to the chart's package. The Helm command will be similar to this:
      helm repo add flyte https://flyteorg.github.io/flyte helm install flyteagent flyte/flyte
    4. Verify that the Helm release is deployed successfully:
      helm list
    5. Use the OpenShift web console or oc CLI to inspect your application.

    Remember, the Pulumi program above will not install the Helm chart itself; it prepares the infrastructure where you can deploy Helm charts. After running the Pulumi program to create your ARO cluster, you will use Helm to deploy your applications, such as flyteagent, to the cluster.
