1. Deploy the ztncui helm chart on Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)


    To deploy the ztncui Helm chart on Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), you'll need to follow these steps:

    1. Set up an AKS cluster.
    2. Install and configure the Pulumi Kubernetes provider to interact with the AKS cluster.
    3. Use Pulumi's Helm chart resource to deploy ztncui onto the AKS cluster.

    Below is a program written in TypeScript that uses Pulumi to achieve this. The program performs the following actions:

    • Provision an AKS cluster (ProvisionedCluster) by defining the desired AKS settings and node pool configuration.
    • Set up a Kubernetes provider that uses the kubeconfig of the provisioned AKS cluster to interact with it.
    • Deploy the ztncui Helm chart using Pulumi's Chart resource, specifying the necessary Helm values.

    Before running this Pulumi program, ensure that you have Azure credentials configured on your development machine, and the Pulumi CLI installed and set up.

    Now, let's walk through the code:

    import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; import * as azureNative from "@pulumi/azure-native"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Define a new AKS cluster with the desired configuration. const aksCluster = new azureNative.hybridcontainerservice.ProvisionedCluster("aksCluster", { // ... specify AKS cluster properties like location, resource group, node properties ... // Docs: https://www.pulumi.com/registry/packages/azure-native/api-docs/hybridcontainerservice/provisionedcluster/ }); // Once the AKS cluster is created, we can retrieve the kubeconfig to configure the Kubernetes provider. const kubeconfig = aksCluster.kubeconfig.apply(JSON.stringify); // Create a Kubernetes provider instance that uses the kubeconfig from the AKS cluster. const k8sProvider = new k8s.Provider("k8sProvider", { kubeconfig: kubeconfig, }); // Define the ztncui Helm chart and deploy it onto the AKS cluster using the Pulumi K8s provider configured above. const ztncuiChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("ztncuiChart", { chart: "ztncui", version: "<set chart version here>", fetchOpts: { repo: "<set helm chart repo url here>", }, // You can specify values here to override chart defaults or configure ztncui specifics. // values: {} }, { provider: k8sProvider }); // Optional: Expose the Kubernetes resources and any other outputs you need. export const aksClusterName = aksCluster.name; export const ztncuiChartResources = ztncuiChart.resources;

    In this program:

    • We create a new ProvisionedCluster named aksCluster. You must specify the AKS cluster properties such as the location, resourceGroupName, and node configuration within the constructor's argument object. The ProvisionedCluster class is part of the azure-native package (docs).

    • Once the AKS cluster is provisioned, we use its output to retrieve the kubeconfig, which is necessary for the Pulumi Kubernetes provider to communicate with the cluster.

    • With the kubeconfig, we instantiate a k8s.Provider to manage the Kubernetes resources within the AKS cluster. This step ensures that any Kubernetes resources we define will be applied to our AKS cluster.

    • Next, we deploy the ztncui Helm chart using Pulumi's Chart resource provided by the Kubernetes (k8s) package. You need to provide the Helm chart repository URL and the chart version to fetch the correct chart. You may also supply a values object to fine-tune the Helm release if necessary. The Chart class is documented here: (docs).

    • Lastly, we're exporting some outputs, like the AKS cluster's name and the ztncuiChart resources for easy access to their properties if needed.

    Remember to replace placeholder values such as <set chart version here> and <set helm chart repo url here> with actual values corresponding to the ztncui Helm chart you intend to deploy.
