1. Deploy the ibm-cp4d-watson-knowledge-catalog-instance helm chart on Kubernetes


    Deploying a Helm chart with Pulumi involves creating a Kubernetes Chart resource, specifying the chart you want to install, and setting the appropriate configurations. The Pulumi Kubernetes package provides a class called Chart that represents a Helm chart deployment.

    The IBM Cloud Pak for Data (cp4d) Watson Knowledge Catalog chart is a Helm chart that you would typically install on a Kubernetes cluster. However, as of my knowledge cutoff date in 2023, Pulumi does not provide a direct provider for IBM Cloud services including Helm charts for IBM Cloud Pak for Data. Therefore, assuming that you have this Helm chart available in a repository, you can use generic Helm chart deployment capabilities provided by Pulumi.

    Here is a TypeScript program that demonstrates how you can deploy the IBM Cloud Pak for Data Watson Knowledge Catalog instance on a Kubernetes cluster using Pulumi:

    import * as k8s from '@pulumi/kubernetes'; // Define the settings for the IBM CP4D Watson Knowledge Catalog chart. // Replace `REPO_URL` with the actual Helm repository URL and ensure the chart name and version // match the details provided by the IBM Helm chart repository for CP4D. const chartOpts: k8s.helm.v3.ChartOpts = { chart: 'ibm-cp4d-watson-knowledge-catalog-instance', version: 'CHART_VERSION', // specify the chart version fetchOpts:{ repo: 'REPO_URL', // specify the Helm repository URL }, // Include any custom values file or configuration required by the IBM CP4D Helm chart // values: { // key: value, // }, }; // Create a new Helm Chart resource which will deploy the Watson Knowledge Catalog instance const watsonKnowledgeCatalog = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart('watson-knowledge-catalog', chartOpts); // Export the Kubernetes Cluster Service name of the Watson Knowledge Catalog, if needed. export const serviceName = watsonKnowledgeCatalog.getResourceProperty('v1/Service', 'SERVICE_NAME_FROM_CHART', 'metadata.name');

    This code does the following:

    1. It imports the necessary Pulumi Kubernetes library.
    2. It defines the Helm chart options, including the name and version of the chart, as well as the repository URL where the chart is located.
    3. It creates a new Helm chart resource, which Pulumi uses to deploy the chart on the Kubernetes cluster.
    4. Optionally, it exports the name of the Kubernetes Service associated with the Watson Knowledge Catalog instance, which might be useful if you want to connect to the Watson Knowledge Catalog from other resources.

    Replace REPO_URL, CHART_VERSION, and SERVICE_NAME_FROM_CHART with the values appropriate for the IBM CP4D Watson Knowledge Catalog chart in the above example. These values depend on the chart's details and configuration options, which you can typically find in the chart documentation or by using Helm CLI commands like helm search repo to search for the chart in the repository.

    Remember, before running this Pulumi program, you must have configured your Pulumi CLI and Kubernetes cluster configuration file (kubeconfig) correctly, so that Pulumi can communicate with your Kubernetes cluster. You can find more information about Pulumi's Kubernetes provider and how to use Helm charts in Pulumi in the Pulumi Kubernetes provider documentation.
