1. Deploy the haproxytech-haproxy-ingress helm chart on Rancher


    To deploy the haproxytech-haproxy-ingress Helm chart on Rancher, you'll need to perform a sequence of steps:

    1. Ensure you have a Rancher environment set up and configured.
    2. Install the Pulumi CLI and set up your Pulumi project.
    3. Write a Pulumi program that deploys the Helm chart.

    Below I'll go through the Pulumi TypeScript code required to deploy a Helm chart to a Kubernetes cluster managed by Rancher.

    The following Pulumi program will use the rancher2 provider to interact with your Rancher server. This provider allows us to manage resources inside a Rancher environment using Pulumi. Please ensure you have the necessary credentials and access rights to communicate with the Rancher API. Usually, this involves setting up an API token in Rancher and configuring the provider with it.

    Here's how you define a Helm chart resource in Pulumi:

    import * as pulumi from '@pulumi/pulumi'; import * as rancher2 from '@pulumi/rancher2'; import * as k8s from '@pulumi/kubernetes'; // Instantiate a Rancher2 provider using the endpoint and token from environment variables or Pulumi configs. const rancherProvider = new rancher2.Provider('rancher-provider', { apiURL: pulumi.config.require('rancherApiUrl'), accessToken: pulumi.config.requireSecret('rancherAccessToken'), // Other required properties may go here }); // Reference an existing Rancher2 Kubernetes cluster. const cluster = rancher2.getCluster({ name: 'your-cluster-name', // Replace with your actual cluster name }, { provider: rancherProvider }); // We will use the resulting kubeconfig to communicate with the Kubernetes cluster. const kubeconfig = cluster.kubeConfig; // Instantiate a Kubernetes provider using the kubeconfig from Rancher. const k8sProvider = new k8s.Provider('k8s-provider', { kubeconfig, }); // Define the HAProxyTech Helm chart. const haproxyIngressChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart('haproxy-ingress', { chart: 'haproxy-ingress', version: '1.16.2', // Replace with your desired chart version fetchOpts: { repo: 'https://haproxy-ingress.github.io/charts', // The repository containing the HAProxy Ingress chart }, // Values to pass to the Helm chart - these would be specific to the configuration you need values: { /* Your specific values go here, for example: controller: { service: { type: 'LoadBalancer', }, }, */ }, }, { provider: k8sProvider }); // Export the public endpoint of the HAProxy ingress. export const ingressEndpoint = haproxyIngressChart.getResourceProperty('v1/Service', 'haproxy-ingress/haproxy-ingress-controller', 'status') .then(status => status.loadBalancer.ingress[0]);

    Please replace the placeholder values with your own, such as the Rancher API URL, access token, and cluster name. You would also need to fill in the specific Helm chart values according to the configuration you desire for the HAProxy Ingress controller.

    To use the above script:

    1. Configure Pulumi to connect to your Rancher instance by setting the required configuration values (rancherApiUrl and rancherAccessToken). You can do this using the Pulumi CLI like this:

      pulumi config set rancherApiUrl <your-rancher-api-url> pulumi config set --secret rancherAccessToken <your-rancher-access-token>
    2. Run pulumi up to execute the script and deploy the Helm chart.

    3. Once the deployment is complete, Pulumi will output the load balancer's ingress endpoint, which you can use to access your HAProxy ingress controller.

    This program assumes you're familiar with Rancher, Kubernetes, and Pulumi basics. If you're still learning any of these, here are useful starting points:

    • Pulumi Kubernetes Guide: https://www.pulumi.com/docs/intro/cloud-providers/kubernetes/
    • Pulumi Helm Guide: https://www.pulumi.com/docs/guides/crosswalk/kubernetes/helm/

    Keep in mind that actual production scripts might include more detailed configuration based on the specific needs of your environment.
