1. Deploy the ibm-storage-enabler-for-containers helm chart on Kubernetes


    To deploy the ibm-storage-enabler-for-containers Helm chart on a Kubernetes cluster using Pulumi, you'll need to use the Pulumi Kubernetes provider. The main resource you'd use is helm.sh/v3.Chart, which is a custom Pulumi resource to deploy Helm charts.

    Let me walk you through the process of creating a Pulumi program that accomplishes this. First, you need to set up Pulumi with the required dependencies. In your project, you would typically run pulumi new kubernetes-typescript to create a new Pulumi project with TypeScript.

    Once the project is set up, you would write the TypeScript program to deploy the helm chart. This involves importing the necessary Pulumi packages, creating Kubernetes and helm chart resources, and executing the code with Pulumi CLI.

    Below is the TypeScript program that shows how to use Pulumi to deploy the ibm-storage-enabler-for-containers helm chart. Note that you should replace placeholders like <NAMESPACE>, <CHART-VERSION>, and <VALUES> with the actual values that apply to your specific situation.

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // You must have a Kubernetes cluster and have configured kubectl to connect to it. // Moreover, make sure Helm is properly configured with your cluster. // Create a Kubernetes provider instance that uses our existing cluster configuration. const provider = new k8s.Provider("k8s-provider", { kubeconfig: "<YOUR-KUBECONFIG>", // Replace with your Kubernetes cluster's kubeconfig, if not using the default context }); // Deploy the ibm-storage-enabler-for-containers Helm chart. const ibmStorageEnablerChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("ibm-storage-enabler-for-containers", { // Replace `<NAMESPACE>` with the namespace where you want to deploy the chart. // Replace `<CHART-VERSION>` with the version of the IBM storage enabler chart you wish to deploy. // For `<VALUES>`, you can provide the custom values for the Helm chart. namespace: "<NAMESPACE>", chart: "ibm-storage-enabler-for-containers", version: "<CHART-VERSION>", fetchOpts: { repo: "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/IBM/charts/master/repo/stable/", }, // Here you can specify custom values for the helm chart. // The values field must be an object, so you can either import a values file // or write the values inline as demonstrated below. values: { "<VALUES>" } }, { provider: provider }); // Export the base URL for the deployed storage enabler export const storageEnablerBaseUrl = ibmStorageEnablerChart.getResourceProperty("v1/Service", "ibm-storage-enabler-for-containers", "status").apply(status => status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].hostname || status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].ip);

    In the code above, you create a new instance of k8s.helm.v3.Chart within a specified namespace in your Kubernetes cluster, using your custom kubeconfig. You specify the name of the Helm chart, and optionally, the version. fetchOpts is used to specify the Helm repository where the chart is located. The values field is where you can override the default settings with your values, which is very common when deploying Helm charts as it allows customizing the deployment.

    Ensure that you replace the placeholder <NAMESPACE>, <CHART-VERSION>, and <VALUES> with values relevant to your deployment. If you don't have customized values to apply, you can omit the values field, and Pulumi will deploy the chart with its default configuration.

    After writing the program, you would save the file, then run pulumi up in your terminal to deploy the chart to your Kubernetes cluster. Pulumi will show a preview of the deployment and prompt for confirmation before proceeding.

    Please note that it's essential to have access to a Kubernetes cluster where you can deploy the Helm chart and have the necessary permissions to install Helm charts on the cluster.
