1. Deploy the ssl-exporter helm chart on Opensshift


    To deploy the ssl-exporter Helm chart on an OpenShift cluster using Pulumi, you will utilize the kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart resource from Pulumi's Kubernetes provider. This resource allows you to deploy Helm charts within a Kubernetes cluster, and is suitable for OpenShift as well since OpenShift is an extension of Kubernetes.

    The deployment process includes the following steps:

    1. Importing the necessary Pulumi and Kubernetes packages.
    2. Creating an instance of a Chart resource, which represents the ssl-exporter Helm chart.
    3. Providing configuration details specific to the ssl-exporter Helm chart, such as chart name, values, namespace, and repository details if it's not a chart from the stable Helm repository.
    4. Optionally, you can provide transformations to modify the resources before they are created, which can be useful for OpenShift-specific configurations or restrictions.

    Below is a Pulumi program in TypeScript that demonstrates these steps:

    import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Create a new instance of the ssl-exporter Helm Chart. // This could be from a local chart directory or from a Helm repository. const sslExporterChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("ssl-exporter", { // Replace with the actual repository URL if the chart is not in the stable repository. repo: "https://your-chart-repository", chart: "ssl-exporter", // Specify the namespace where the chart should be deployed. namespace: "default", // You can override default values from the chart by specifying them here. // This would be the equivalent of using the --set flag in `helm install`. values: { // Set your custom values for the ssl-exporter chart here. }, // If you need to pass any special options to the Helm fetch command you can specify them here. fetchOpts: { // Set custom fetch options here if necessary. }, }); // Export the base URL for the ssl-exporter service, assuming it creates a Kubernetes service. export const sslExporterUrl = sslExporterChart.getResourceProperty("v1/Service", "ssl-exporter", "status").apply(status => { return `http://${status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].hostname}`; });

    In this Pulumi program:

    • We import the @pulumi/pulumi package for general Pulumi functions and the @pulumi/kubernetes package for working with Kubernetes resources.
    • We create a new Helm chart instance for ssl-exporter using k8s.helm.v3.Chart.
      • repo is the URL of the Helm repository where the ssl-exporter chart is located, which you need to replace with the appropriate URL.
      • chart specifies the name of the chart we want to deploy.
      • namespace indicates the OpenShift project (Kubernetes namespace) where you want to deploy the chart.
      • values can be used to override default values in the Helm chart, corresponding to customizing the values.yaml file.
      • The fetchOpts parameter allows you to specify custom Helm fetch options if they are necessary for your use case.
    • We export sslExporterUrl variable which, assuming that the Helm chart creates a Kubernetes Service, retrieves the load balancer ingress address. You can access the underlying status of any resource provisioned by the Helm chart using the getResourceProperty method.

    To use this program, you need to have Pulumi installed and configured with access to your OpenShift cluster. You would run pulumi up to deploy the chart to your cluster.

    If you have additional configurations, such as setting up a persistent volume or any other custom resource configurations specific to your OpenShift environment, you may need to add additional code before deploying the chart.
