1. Deploy the argocd-version-exporter helm chart on Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)


    To deploy the argocd-version-exporter Helm chart on Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) using Pulumi, you'll need to follow these steps:

    1. Set Up an AKS Cluster: Before you can deploy a Helm chart, you need an AKS cluster where the application will be hosted. The azure-native.hybridcontainerservice.ProvisionedCluster resource will be used to provision an AKS cluster in Azure.

    2. Install Argo CD: While not explicitly handled by Pulumi, you would typically have Argo CD installed on your Kubernetes cluster as a prerequisite for deploying the argocd-version-exporter chart, since it's an Argo CD component.

    3. Deploy the Helm Chart: To deploy the Helm chart, Pulumi provides the kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart resource which will be instructed to install the argocd-version-exporter Helm chart to your AKS cluster.

    Below is a Pulumi program in TypeScript that performs these steps:

    import * as pulumi from '@pulumi/pulumi'; import * as azure_native from '@pulumi/azure-native'; import * as k8s from '@pulumi/kubernetes'; // Step 1: Create an Azure Resource Group const resourceGroup = new azure_native.resources.ResourceGroup("myResourceGroup", { location: "West US", // You can choose a different region }); // Step 2: Create the AKS cluster const aksCluster = new azure_native.containerservice.ManagedCluster("myAksCluster", { resourceGroupName: resourceGroup.name, location: resourceGroup.location, kubernetesVersion: "1.18.14", // Pick a supported Kubernetes version dnsPrefix: "my-aks-cluster", // Replace with a DNS prefix of your choice agentPoolProfiles: [{ count: 1, // Number of nodes in the node pool maxPods: 110, // Maximum number of pods per node mode: "System", name: "agentpool", osDiskSizeGB: 30, osType: "Linux", vmSize: "Standard_DS2_v2", // Choose a different VM size if needed }], }); // Retrieve the KubeConfig from AKS const creds = pulumi.all([resourceGroup.name, aksCluster.name]).apply(([rgName, clusterName]) => azure_native.containerservice.listManagedClusterUserCredentials({ resourceGroupName: rgName, resourceName: clusterName, }), ); // Step 3: Use the KubeConfig to connect to the AKS cluster const aksKubeConfig = creds.kubeconfigs[0].value.apply(kubeconfig => Buffer.from(kubeconfig, 'base64').toString(), ); // Create a Kubernetes provider instance that uses our cluster from above. const k8sProvider = new k8s.Provider("k8sProvider", { kubeconfig: aksKubeConfig, }); // Step 4: Deploy the argocd-version-exporter Helm chart const chart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("argocd-version-exporter", { chart: "argocd-version-exporter", version: "1.0.0", // Use the version number of the Helm chart you're deploying namespace: "default", // You can specify additional values here that you'd want to override. }, { provider: k8sProvider }); // Export the AKS cluster's kubeconfig. export const kubeConfig = aksKubeConfig;

    In this program:

    • We start by creating an Azure resource group that will contain the AKS cluster.
    • We then create an AKS cluster within the resource group. You'll need to specify the kubernetesVersion, dnsPrefix, and agentPoolProfiles as appropriate for your environment.
    • We retrieve the kubeconfig for our AKS cluster which will be used to interact with the cluster.
    • With the Kubernetes provider configured with the kubeconfig from the AKS cluster, we proceed to deploy the argocd-version-exporter Helm chart. We specify the chart name and version, adjust these values accordingly if you're using a different chart or chart version.
    • Finally, we export the kubeconfig to enable interaction with the AKS cluster using kubectl or other Kubernetes tooling outside of Pulumi.

    To run this Pulumi program, make sure you have Pulumi installed and configured for use with Azure. Then, install the necessary NPM packages (@pulumi/pulumi, @pulumi/azure-native, @pulumi/kubernetes) in your project and run pulumi up. This will provision the resources as described in the script. Remember to ensure you have permission to create resources in your Azure subscription and the Pulumi CLI is logged in.
