1. Deploy the openshift-rbac helm chart on Opensshift


    To deploy the openshift-rbac Helm chart on OpenShift using Pulumi, we will utilize the kubernetes.helm.sh/v3.Chart resource from the Kubernetes package. This resource allows you to deploy applications to a Kubernetes cluster using a Helm chart. We assume that you have an OpenShift cluster up and running, and you have configured Pulumi to interact with your Kubernetes cluster.

    First, you need to install the necessary Pulumi npm packages for Kubernetes. You can do this by running:

    npm install @pulumi/kubernetes

    The program below will create an instance of a Helm chart resource. You will need to replace the placeholder values for repo and chart with the actual Helm repository and chart name for openshift-rbac. The values object would contain any configuration overrides required for the chart.

    Here's how you can accomplish this:

    import * as kubernetes from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // We create a new Helm chart instance for "openshift-rbac". // You will need to replace `REPO_URL` with the URL of the repository where the chart is located, // and possibly adjust the `chart` and `version` with the appropriate values. const openshiftRBACChart = new kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart("openshift-rbac", { // Replace with the actual repository URL repo: "REPO_URL", chart: "openshift-rbac", // Specify the exact version of the chart. version: "CHART_VERSION", // If you need to provide any specific values to the chart, define them here. // For example: // values: { adminUser: "admin", adminPassword: "password" }, }); // To interact with the deployed chart, export any necessary resources. // For example, you may want to export the service URL if applicable: // export const serviceUrl = openshiftRBACChart.getResourceProperty("v1/Service", "service-name", "status");

    Before running the program, here are a few important things to note:

    • The repo property is the URL of the Helm repository that contains your chart.
    • The chart property is the name of the Helm chart you want to deploy.
    • The version property is the specific version of the chart you want to deploy. If not specified, the latest version of the chart will be deployed.
    • If the chart requires configuration, those settings should be provided in the values property.
    • Ensure you have the appropriate role-based access control (RBAC) permissions set up in your OpenShift cluster for the deployment. These permissions need to correspond to the service account Pulumi will use to deploy the chart.

    After filling in the placeholder values, you can deploy this chart by running pulumi up in your command line. Pulumi will communicate with your Kubernetes cluster configured in your local kubeconfig and deploy the chart.

    For further details on using Pulumi with Kubernetes and Helm charts, I recommend reviewing the Pulumi documentation for Kubernetes and the Chart resource specifically.
