1. Deploy the cni-metrics-helper helm chart on Rancher


    Deploying a Helm chart on a Rancher-managed Kubernetes cluster involves multiple steps. To accomplish this with Pulumi, you would generally perform the following tasks:

    1. Set up the Rancher cluster, if it's not already provisioned.
    2. Ensure you have access to the cluster through Kubernetes credentials.
    3. Install the Helm chart on the cluster.

    For deploying the cni-metrics-helper Helm chart specifically, we need to identify if there is a Rancher2 Helm chart resource within Pulumi's scope. The Pulumi Registry Results you've provided do not directly indicate a specific Helm chart resource within the Rancher2 provider, but they do include various Rancher2 resources that can manage different aspects of Rancher itself, such as clusters, namespaces, and catalog applications.

    Assuming that the Rancher cluster is already provisioned and access is configured, and you want to deploy a Helm chart to that cluster using Pulumi, you would typically use the helm.v3.Chart resource from the Pulumi Kubernetes provider. You will need access to the cluster's Kubernetes configuration file (kubeconfig) to interact with your cluster through Pulumi.

    Below is a Pulumi TypeScript program that demonstrates how to deploy a Helm chart to a Kubernetes cluster managed by Rancher. This example assumes that you already have a Rancher-managed Kubernetes cluster and the necessary Helm chart repository added to your environment. Please replace placeholders like YOUR-CLUSTER-ID with your actual cluster details.

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Define the cni-metrics-helper Helm chart. // Replace `chart-version` with the version you wish to install, and specify the correct repository if needed. const cniMetricsHelperChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("cni-metrics-helper", { chart: "cni-metrics-helper", version: "chart-version", fetchOpts: { repo: "http://your-helm-chart-repository/", }, // Specify the namespace if required, for example, monitoring. namespace: "monitoring", // Values for the Helm chart can be set here if needed. values: { // Set your values according to the cni-metrics-helper Helm chart's values.yaml }, // If you need to customize the options for your Rancher-managed cluster, such as kubeconfig, you can do so here. // The example uses default access to the currently configured context in your kubeconfig. }); // Export any relevant fields that you may want to use or output, such as the status of the Helm chart. export const cniMetricsHelperStatus = cniMetricsHelperChart.status;

    In this code:

    • We import the @pulumi/kubernetes package to use Pulumi's Kubernetes provider.
    • We instantiate a Helm chart using k8s.helm.v3.Chart. We name the instance cni-metrics-helper.
    • You should provide the Helm chart's version and the repository URL where the chart can be found to the fetchOpts property.
    • If the chart needs to be installed in a specific namespace or requires custom values, these are specified in namespace and values, respectively.
    • At the end of the program, we export the status of the Helm chart, which can be useful to verify if the chart is installed correctly.

    Before running this Pulumi code, ensure that:

    • You have Pulumi CLI installed.
    • Your Pulumi Kubernetes provider is configured with access to your Rancher Kubernetes cluster (typically done by setting the KUBECONFIG environment variable).
    • If your Helm chart requires a specific repository, make sure to add it to your Helm repositories beforehand.

    This code will deploy the specified Helm chart to your Rancher-managed Kubernetes cluster when you run it using the Pulumi CLI.
