1. Deploy the mod-permissions helm chart on Opensshift


    To deploy the mod-permissions Helm chart on an OpenShift cluster, you will use Pulumi's Kubernetes provider to create a Helm Release. Here's how the entire process works with Pulumi and TypeScript:

    1. Set up the required dependencies: You will need to have Node.js, Pulumi CLI, and kubectl configured to connect to your OpenShift cluster.

    2. Create a new Pulumi project: This will establish the infrastructure-as-code environment in which you will define your deployment.

    3. Define the Helm Release: In your Pulumi program, you will specify the mod-permissions Helm chart along with any necessary configuration parameters.

    4. Deploy: Run pulumi up to preview and deploy your changes.

    5. Access and Manage: Once the Helm chart is deployed, you can manage it through Pulumi or interact with the deployed application as you normally would through OpenShift's tooling.

    Below is a Pulumi TypeScript program which accomplishes this:

    import * as kubernetes from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // The namespace where you want to deploy your Helm chart, adjust if necessary const namespace = "mod-permissions-namespace"; // Create a Kubernetes Namespace const ns = new kubernetes.core.v1.Namespace(namespace, { metadata: { name: namespace, }, }); // Define the Helm Chart const helmChart = new kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart("mod-permissions", { namespace: namespace, repo: "your-repo", // Specify your Helm repository name here chart: "mod-permissions", // You can specify the version of the chart here, if needed // version: "1.0.0", // Any additional value overrides would be specified here, for example: // values: { // key: "value", // }, }, { dependsOn: [ns] }); // Export the name of the namespace export const namespaceName = ns.metadata.name;

    Here's a step-by-step explanation of the code:

    • We import the necessary Kubernetes package from Pulumi's library.
    • We define a namespace that our Helm chart will be deployed into. This helps isolate our application within the cluster.
    • We create a Pulumi Kubernetes Namespace resource to ensure that the namespace exists on our cluster.
    • Then, we define a Pulumi Kubernetes Helm Chart resource. This essentially represents a Helm chart and tells Pulumi where to find it (repo), which chart to use (chart), and any configurations (values) that need to be applied.
    • The dependsOn option is used to explicitly specify dependencies between resources, ensuring that the namespace is created before attempting to deploy the Helm chart into it.
    • In the end, we export the namespace so you can easily retrieve its name after deployment from the Pulumi stack outputs.

    To run this Pulumi program:

    1. Save the program in a file named index.ts.
    2. Run pulumi stack init to create a new stack.
    3. Run pulumi up to preview and deploy the changes. If the command line prompts to install any missing plugins, confirm the installation.

    Please replace "your-repo" with the actual Helm repository name where the mod-permissions chart is hosted. The values parameter within the helmChart definition is where you can specify custom values to configure the mod-permissions Helm chart according to your needs.

    Keep in mind that the code provided assumes you have a running OpenShift cluster and have configured Pulumi to manage resources in that cluster. If you do not have a cluster or Pulumi configured, you will need to set those up first.
