1. Deploy the generic-persistent-volume helm chart on Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)


    In order to deploy a Helm chart to an Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) cluster using Pulumi, we'll first need to ensure we have an AKS cluster running. We'll then use Pulumi's Kubernetes provider to deploy a Helm chart, which in this case is a generic-persistent-volume chart.

    To accomplish this, we will follow these steps:

    1. Create an AKS cluster using Pulumi’s azure-native provider.
    2. Once the cluster is provisioned, configure Pulumi to use the Kubernetes provider to connect to the newly created AKS cluster.
    3. Deploy the Helm chart to the AKS cluster using Pulumi’s kubernetes provider.

    Now let's dive into the Pulumi program. Make sure to have Pulumi CLI set up and logged in, along with Azure CLI authenticated to your Azure account.

    The following TypeScript Pulumi program will create an AKS cluster and then deploy the Helm chart:

    import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; import * as azureNative from "@pulumi/azure-native"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; import { Input } from "@pulumi/pulumi"; // Create an Azure Resource Group const resourceGroup = new azureNative.resources.ResourceGroup("myResourceGroup"); // Create an AKS cluster const aksCluster = new azureNative.containerservice.ManagedCluster("myAKSCluster", { resourceGroupName: resourceGroup.name, identity: { type: "SystemAssigned", }, // Define AKS properties here agentPoolProfiles: [{ count: 1, vmSize: "Standard_DS2_v2", mode: "System", name: "agentpool", }], dnsPrefix: "myakscluster", // Other properties can be set according to your needs }); // Export the kubeconfig for the AKS cluster export const kubeconfig = pulumi. all([aksCluster.name, resourceGroup.name]). apply(([clusterName, rgName]) => { const creds = azureNative.containerservice.listManagedClusterUserCredentialsOutput({ resourceName: clusterName, resourceGroupName: rgName, }); const encoded = creds.kubeconfigs[0].value; if (encoded === undefined) { throw new Error("Kubeconfig was undefined"); } return Buffer.from(encoded, 'base64').toString(); }); // Create a provider to deploy the Helm chart to the AKS cluster const k8sProvider = new k8s.Provider("k8sProvider", { kubeconfig: kubeconfig as unknown as Input<string>, }); // Deploy generic-persistent-volume Helm chart const persistentVolumeChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("generic-persistent-volume", { chart: "generic-persistent-volume", // Specify the chart repository and version as required fetchOpts: { repo: "http://your-helm-chart-repository/", // Replace with your Helm chart repository URL }, // Include values for the chart here values: { // Example: size: "10Gi", accessModes: "ReadWriteOnce" }, }, { provider: k8sProvider }); // Now, let's export the status of the deployment. export const helmChartStatus = persistentVolumeChart.status;

    Please replace the placeholder "http://your-helm-chart-repository/" with the URL of your Helm chart repository. The values property in the Helm chart should mirror the input values provided when manually deploying a Helm chart using the helm install command.

    Additionally, the azureNative.containerservice.ManagedCluster is used to create an AKS cluster. If you need a different configuration for your AKS cluster, modify the agentPoolProfiles, dnsPrefix, and any other properties as needed.

    After running the program with pulumi up, Pulumi will provision an AKS cluster and deploy the Helm chart to it. Remember to review the preview provided by Pulumi before confirming the deployment.
