1. Deploy the barbican helm chart on Kubernetes


    To deploy the Barbican Helm chart on Kubernetes using Pulumi, you'll need to use the Chart resource from Pulumi's Kubernetes provider. This resource allows you to deploy Helm charts into a Kubernetes cluster.

    Below is a program in TypeScript that demonstrates how to deploy a Helm chart using Pulumi. Before running this program, ensure you have Pulumi installed, access to a Kubernetes cluster, and have your Kubernetes configuration file (~/.kube/config) correctly set up.

    First, you have to create a new project using the Pulumi CLI with pulumi new kubernetes-typescript. Then replace the contents of index.ts with the code below:

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // This is the release name to be used within your Kubernetes cluster. const releaseName = "barbican"; // Create a Helm Chart resource for the Barbican Helm chart. const barbicanChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart(releaseName, { // Specify where to find the Helm chart. Replace with the actual repository that hosts the Barbican Helm chart. repo: "barbican-repo", chart: "barbican", // You can specify the version of the chart here if necessary. version: "x.y.z", // This is the namespace where the Barbican resources will be deployed. namespace: "barbican-namespace", // Here you can pass custom values to the chart if needed. values: { // all the necessary Barbican settings here... }, }); // Exporting the chart's status to ensure the deployment is successful. export const status = barbicanChart.status;

    This program does the following:

    • Imports the Kubernetes package from Pulumi.
    • Defines a releaseName that sets the desired name for the deployment of the chart.
    • Creates a new Helm chart resource with the chart's repository URL (repo), the chart name (chart), its version (version), and the namespace to deploy to (namespace).
    • Optionally accepts values which would override the default values of the chart and tailor the installation to your environment.
    • Exports the status of the chart, which can be helpful for monitoring or dependencies when scripting with Pulumi.

    Please replace barbican-repo with the actual repository where the Barbican Helm chart is located, and x.y.z with the chart version you wish to deploy. If you don't have a specific version, you can omit the version option to use the latest one. Also, the namespace barbican-namespace should be replaced with the namespace you'd like to deploy Barbican to, or removed to deploy to the default namespace.

    Remember to install any dependencies by running npm install or yarn install in your Pulumi project directory.

    You can run your Pulumi program to deploy the Barbican Helm chart to your Kubernetes cluster by running:

    pulumi up

    This command synchronizes the desired state of your infrastructure with the actual state in the cloud, showing you a preview first and prompting for confirmation before making any changes.

    If you need further customization or face any issues, please make sure to consult the chart's documentation for any additional settings you may wish to configure.
