1. Deploy the aws-sigv4-proxy-admission-controller helm chart on Rancher


    To deploy the aws-sigv4-proxy-admission-controller Helm chart on Rancher, you would need to take several steps:

    1. Set up Rancher and have access to a Kubernetes cluster managed by Rancher.
    2. Ensure you have Helm chart details for aws-sigv4-proxy-admission-controller. This might include the repository URL where the chart is stored and the specific chart version you want to deploy.
    3. Use Pulumi's Rancher 2 provider to facilitate the deployment of the Helm chart onto your Rancher-managed Kubernetes cluster.

    Before diving into the Pulumi code, make sure you have:

    • Installed Pulumi and set up the CLI with your desired state backend.
    • Configured access to your Rancher instance, such as providing the URL and API keys, so that Pulumi can authenticate against your Rancher server.
    • Installed the @pulumi/rancher2 package which provides the Rancher 2 provider for Pulumi.

    Here is a Pulumi TypeScript program that illustrates how to deploy a Helm chart on a Rancher-managed Kubernetes cluster:

    import * as rancher2 from "@pulumi/rancher2"; // The name and version of the Helm chart to be deployed. const chartName = "aws-sigv4-proxy-admission-controller"; const chartVersion = "1.0.0"; // Please replace with the actual chart version you want to deploy. // The Rancher cluster ID where you want to deploy your Helm chart. const clusterId = "<RANCHER_CLUSTER_ID>"; // The namespace within the cluster where the Helm chart will be deployed. const namespaceName = "aws-sigv4-proxy-namespace"; // Create a namespace in Rancher for the Helm chart, if it doesn't exist. const namespace = new rancher2.Namespace("aws-sigv4-proxy-ns", { clusterId: clusterId, name: namespaceName, }); // Deploying the Helm chart using App resource. const helmChartDeployment = new rancher2.App("aws-sigv4-proxy-admission-controller", { catalogName: "helm", // Assuming the Helm chart is in the "helm" catalog. clusterId: clusterId, description: "aws-sigv4-proxy-admission-controller Helm chart", externalId: `catalog://?catalog=helm&template=${chartName}&version=${chartVersion}`, targetNamespace: namespace.id, // Target the namespace created above. }); // Export the namespace and app name so you know where the Helm chart was deployed. export const namespaceID = namespace.id; export const deploymentName = helmChartDeployment.name;

    This code snippet performs the following actions:

    • It imports the @pulumi/rancher2 package which contains the necessary resources to interact with Rancher.
    • Specifies the Helm chart's name and version that you want to deploy.
    • It creates a Kubernetes namespace within the Rancher cluster if it does not exist already. This namespace will be used to deploy your Helm chart to keep resources logically separated from others in the same cluster.
    • Deploys the Helm chart to the specified namespace using the rancher2.App resource. The externalId properly formulates the identifier that Rancher uses to fetch and deploy the specified Helm chart.

    Make sure to replace the placeholder values (like <RANCHER_CLUSTER_ID>) in the script with actual values from your Rancher setup.

    You can find more details about each resource, its properties, and what they represent in the Pulumi Rancher 2 documentation:

    Keep in mind that deploying some Helm charts may require additional configuration which can be provided through the answers property of the rancher2.App resource. The externalId may also need to be adjusted based on the Helm chart's repository.

    After writing your Pulumi program, you can deploy the infrastructure by running the following commands:

    • pulumi up to preview and deploy the changes.
    • Confirm the deployment by selecting yes when prompted.

    Once the deployment is complete, you can check the output variables to get the namespace and deployment name where the Helm chart is deployed. This information will help you manage or interact with the chart in your Kubernetes cluster through Rancher.
