1. Deploy the gitlab-goproxy helm chart on Rancher


    To deploy the GitLab GoProxy Helm chart on a Rancher-managed Kubernetes cluster, you would typically need to follow these steps:

    1. Set up a Rancher Kubernetes cluster or have access to an existing one.
    2. Ensure you have the Helm chart repository added that contains the GitLab GoProxy chart.
    3. Configure your Pulumi environment to interact with the Rancher API.
    4. Use the Pulumi Rancher2 provider to manage resources within Rancher.

    Below is a Pulumi program in TypeScript that outlines how you can accomplish the deployment of the GitLab GoProxy Helm chart. This program assumes that you're using rancher2 provider and that you have already set up your Rancher Kubernetes cluster and added the necessary Helm chart repository.

    Let's explore the code:

    import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; import * as rancher2 from "@pulumi/rancher2"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Initialize a Pulumi program with the existing Rancher2 provider. // Presuming the Rancher Kubernetes cluster is already created and configured properly. const provider = new rancher2.Provider("provider", { apiURL: "https://rancher.example.com/v3", accessKey: "token-xxxxx", secretKey: "xxxxx", }); // Retrieve the existing cluster where Helm chart will be deployed const cluster = rancher2.getCluster({ name: "my-cluster" }, { provider: provider }); // Once we have the cluster information, we can configure the Kubernetes provider const k8sProvider = new k8s.Provider("k8s-provider", { kubeconfig: cluster.kubeConfig, }); // The GitLab GoProxy Helm chart details const gitlabGoproxyChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("gitlab-goproxy", { chart: "goproxy", version: "x.x.x", // Specify the version of the chart you want to deploy fetchOpts: { repo: "https://charts.gitlab.io/", // The URL of the repository where the chart is located }, values: { // Specify the values for the chart based on your requirements image: { repository: "goproxy/goproxy", tag: "latest", }, service: { type: "ClusterIP", port: 80, }, // ... add other necessary values as per GoProxy chart documentation }, }, { provider: k8sProvider }); // Export the service endpoint once it is available export const gitlabGoproxyEndpoint = gitlabGoproxyChart.getResourceProperty("v1/Service", "gitlab-goproxy", "status");

    Before running this code, you need to:

    1. Install the Pulumi CLI and log in.
    2. Set up your Pulumi stack (pulumi stack init STACK_NAME).
    3. Configure secret values using pulumi config set --secret rancher2:apiUrl API_URL.
    4. Similarly, set the accessKey and secretKey for authenticating with the Rancher2 API.
    5. Ensure the Rancher2 provider is installed using npm install @pulumi/rancher2.
    6. Ensure the Kubernetes provider and Helm are installed using npm install @pulumi/kubernetes.

    With the above in place, the code does the following:

    • Imports the necessary Pulumi, Kubernetes, and Rancher2 packages.
    • Sets up a rancher2.Provider instance with the configured API URL and credentials, which allows you to communicate with the Rancher API.
    • Retrieves the existing Kubernetes cluster managed by Rancher where you want to deploy the Helm chart.
    • Initializes a Kubernetes provider using the kubeconfig from the Rancher-managed cluster.
    • Defines the Helm chart for GitLab GoProxy, specifying its version, repository, and any custom values it requires.
    • Deploys the chart to the cluster using the Helm and Kubernetes providers.
    • Exports the endpoint of the deployed GoProxy service, so you can access it once it's available.

    After running the Pulumi program, it will perform the deployment, and you will get the service endpoint as an output for accessing your GitLab GoProxy instance.
