1. Deploy the testkube-api helm chart on Rancher


    To deploy the testkube-api Helm chart on a Rancher-managed Kubernetes cluster using Pulumi, we will follow these steps:

    1. Set up the Rancher Kubernetes Cluster: Before you can deploy a Helm chart, you need a Kubernetes cluster. We'll assume you have a cluster set up and managed by Rancher.

    2. Install and Configure Pulumi: Make sure Pulumi CLI is installed and configured for use with your Rancher cluster.

    3. Write the Pulumi TypeScript Program: We'll write a TypeScript program to deploy the Helm chart. This program will include importing necessary Pulumi packages, setting up your Rancher provider, and deploying the testkube-api Helm chart.

    4. Run the Pulumi Program: Use the Pulumi CLI to preview and apply the changes to your infrastructure.

    Here is the detailed Pulumi TypeScript program to deploy the testkube-api Helm chart on Rancher:

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; // Create a Kubernetes provider instance for the existing Rancher-managed cluster. // Note: the kubeconfig needed here can be sourced from your configured rancher cluster. const rancherK8sProvider = new k8s.Provider("rancher-k8s-provider", { kubeconfig: "<YOUR_KUBECONFIG_HERE>", }); // Deploy the testkube-api Helm chart. const testkubeApiChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("testkube-api", { chart: "testkube-api", version: "<CHART_VERSION>", // specify the chart version // You can specify the repository if the Helm chart is not in the default repo fetchOpts: { repo: "https://charts.testkube.io", }, // If the Helm chart requires custom values, set them here values: { //... Add your custom values }, }, { provider: rancherK8sProvider }); // Export the endpoint of the testkube-api export const testkubeApiEndpoint = testkubeApiChart.getResourceProperty( "v1/Service", "testkube-api", "status" ).apply(status => status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].hostname || status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].ip);

    Explanation of the Pulumi Program:

    • We begin by importing the necessary Pulumi packages for Kubernetes.

    • We instantiate a Kubernetes provider that points to our Rancher-managed Kubernetes cluster. Replace <YOUR_KUBECONFIG_HERE> with the path to your kubeconfig file which contains the connection information for your Kubernetes cluster.

    • We declare a Helm chart resource, testkubeApiChart, which will install the testkube-api chart from its Helm repository. If your Helm chart has specific version requirements or resides in a custom repository, you will need to provide the appropriate version and fetchOpts.repo values.

    • We expose the testkubeApiEndpoint which would be the service endpoint for you to access the testkube-api. Depending on how you've set up your service within Kubernetes, it might be an IP address or a hostname.

    To apply these changes and deploy the Helm chart on your Rancher cluster using Pulumi:

    1. Ensure you have the Pulumi CLI and the prerequisites installed.
    2. Save the above TypeScript code in a file named index.ts.
    3. Run pulumi up in your terminal to preview and execute the deployment.

    Remember, the endpoint exported at the end provides information after the deployment is successful. You might interact with the endpoint for automated testing or other interventions.
