1. Deploy the turbonomic-importer helm chart on Opensshift


    To deploy the turbonomic-importer Helm chart on an OpenShift cluster using Pulumi, we will take advantage of Pulumi's Kubernetes provider. We'll use the Chart resource from this provider to deploy a Helm chart to a pre-existing OpenShift cluster.

    Before you begin, you need to have a few prerequisites in place:

    1. Make sure you have access to an OpenShift cluster and you have configured the kubectl CLI to connect to it.
    2. Pulumi CLI installed on your machine.
    3. A Pulumi account and the Pulumi program set up to use the appropriate Kubernetes stack.

    Below is a step-by-step Pulumi program in TypeScript that demonstrates how to deploy the turbonomic-importer Helm chart:

    1. Set up the Pulumi project and import dependencies: You need a Pulumi project with the necessary packages installed. In your Pulumi project's directory, you will have a package.json file where Kubernetes package dependencies should be listed.

    2. Create the Kubernetes provider: When interfacing with an OpenShift cluster, Pulumi uses the Kubernetes provider, which requires the kubeconfig file to connect to the OpenShift cluster. This is handled automatically if your kubectl is already configured.

    3. Define and deploy the Helm chart: You will use the Chart resource to deploy the Helm chart.

    Here's the Pulumi TypeScript program that carries out the deployment:

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // In Pulumi, the `k8s.helm.v3.Chart` constructs a Helm Chart resource. // `new k8s.helm.v3.Chart` means we are creating a new instance of a Helm Chart. const turbonomicImporterChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("turbonomic-importer", { // In the `chart` argument, we specify the name of the chart we want to deploy. chart: "turbonomic-importer", // `version` specifies the version of the chart you want to deploy; omit it to deploy the latest version. // The `fetchOpts` provide additional options for fetching the Helm chart. Here you can specify the repository or a local path. // If the 'turbonomic-importer' chart is in a custom Helm repository, you'll need to add the `repo` value accordingly. // For example, `repo: "https://charts.example.com/"` should be used if that is where your chart is hosted. fetchOpts: { repo: "https://charts.example.com/", }, // `values` allows you to provide a set of values to customize the deployment, akin to a `values.yaml` file used in Helm. // The exact contents will depend on the specific chart and what configurable options `turbonomic-importer` provides. values: { // ... custom values specific to the turbonomic-importer Helm chart ... }, namespace: "default", // Change this to the desired namespace on your OpenShift cluster. }, { // The `provider` field is not specified here since we are assuming that the default provider has been configured. // If you have multiple Kubernetes providers, you would need to specify the appropriate one here. }); // Export the chart name, which would be the name of the deployed release. export const chartName = turbonomicImporterChart.metadata.name;

    Please update the repo and values with the correct repository URL and values for your turbonomic-importer chart. Also, ensure to target the correct namespace where you want the Helm chart to be deployed.

    This Pulumi program provides a basic outline. Depending on the chart you want to deploy, you might need to provide additional configuration options or handle more complex deployment logic. Always refer to the Pulumi API Documentation for the Helm Chart for more detailed information.

    Once your Pulumi TypeScript program is set up, you can deploy it using the Pulumi CLI with the following commands:

    1. Run pulumi up to preview and deploy the changes.
    2. Review the preview and, if it looks good, select "yes" to deploy the chart.

    After deployment, Pulumi will output any exported variables such as chartName. You can use these outputs to interact with your deployed resources.
