1. Deploy the opencve helm chart on Kubernetes


    To deploy the OpenCVE Helm chart on a Kubernetes cluster using Pulumi, you will need to write a Pulumi program that utilizes the Helm Chart resource. This resource is a representation of a Helm chart in Pulumi and can be used to deploy applications on your Kubernetes cluster.

    Here's the breakdown of what needs to be done:

    • Set up a Kubernetes cluster where the Helm chart will be deployed. You would typically do this outside of Pulumi using managed services like AWS EKS, GCP GKE, or Azure AKS, or you could use Pulumi to set up a self-managed cluster. For this example, I will assume that you have an existing Kubernetes cluster and have configured your kubectl to interact with it.
    • Install the Pulumi CLI and set up your Pulumi project. This step involves installing Pulumi CLI on your machine, logging in to your Pulumi account, and initializing a new Pulumi project (or selecting an existing one).
    • Write TypeScript code to define a new instance of a Helm chart that will deploy OpenCVE.

    In the sample TypeScript Pulumi program below, we assume you have a Kubernetes cluster ready and accessible via kubectl. I will provide you with the TypeScript code that would deploy the OpenCVE using Pulumi's kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart resource. Make sure you replace <YOUR-NAMESPACE> with the actual Kubernetes namespace where the chart should be deployed.

    import * as kubernetes from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Create an instance of the Helm chart to deploy OpenCVE // Be sure to replace `<YOUR-REPO-URL>` with the URL of the repository where the OpenCVE helm chart is located. // Replace `<CHART-VERSION>` with the version number of the OpenCVE Helm chart you wish to deploy. // If OpenCVE requires any specific values to be set, you can include a `values` object with those properties. const openCVEChart = new kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart("opencve", { namespace: "<YOUR-NAMESPACE>", // Replace with your namespace chart: "opencve", // The name of the chart version: "<CHART-VERSION>", // The version of the chart fetchOpts: { repo: "<YOUR-REPO-URL>", // The repository URL where the OpenCVE chart can be found }, // If the OpenCVE Helm chart requires you to provide a set of values, specify them here. // values: { // key: "value", // ... // }, }); // Export the base domain name of the OpenCVE instance once the chart is deployed export const openCVEBaseDomain = openCVEChart.getResourceProperty("v1/Service", "<SERVICE-NAME>", "status").apply(status => status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].hostname);

    This is a high-level view:

    1. We import the necessary Kubernetes package from Pulumi's library.
    2. We declare and create a new Helm chart instance called openCVEChart. This instance represents the OpenCVE Helm chart.
    3. We provide the necessary configuration parameters for the Helm chart such as the namespace, chart name, chart version, and the repository URL.
    4. If the OpenCVE chart requires any specific configurations through its values.yaml file, they can be provided in the values object.
    5. Once the Pulumi program is executed, the openCVEBaseDomain will export the base domain where the OpenCVE is accessible if a LoadBalancer service is used.

    To run this Pulumi program, you will navigate to the directory with the Pulumi project and execute pulumi up, which will preview the changes and prompt for confirmation before applying them.

    Before you run the code, please ensure that the chart name, version, and repository URL are accurate. These values depend on the Helm repository where the OpenCVE chart is hosted, and you will need to get these details from the OpenCVE documentation or their Helm repository.

    Keep in mind that the getResourceProperty function is used to dynamically fetch the domain name of the load balancer through which OpenCVE is exposed. The <SERVICE-NAME> should be replaced with the actual name of the Kubernetes service that your Helm chart creates for OpenCVE. If the service is not of type LoadBalancer, or if you have multiple ingress points, you'd need to adjust the export statement accordingly.

    Once your Pulumi program deploys OpenCVE successfully, you'll be able to manage OpenCVE through its web interface, accessible at the domain name exported by the program.
