1. Deploy the kanister-elasticsearch helm chart on Kubernetes


    Deploying a Helm chart on a Kubernetes cluster using Pulumi involves a few key steps. Firstly, you'll need a Kubernetes cluster running and accessible to Pulumi. The Pulumi program will define a helm.v3.Chart resource, which represents a Helm chart installation within the Kubernetes cluster.

    The helm.v3.Chart resource from the Pulumi Kubernetes provider allows you to deploy Helm charts into your Kubernetes cluster. Here's a breakdown of how to use it:

    1. Chart Resource Identifier: Define the name of the Helm chart resource within the Pulumi program. This identifier is used to reference the Helm chart resource within the Pulumi program itself, it's not the name of the Helm chart you want to deploy.

    2. Chart Arguments: Provide a set of arguments to configure the Helm chart. These typically include:

      • chart: The name of the Helm chart you want to deploy (e.g., "kanister-elasticsearch").
      • version: The version of the Helm chart to deploy. If not specified, the latest version will be deployed.
      • fetchOpts: Options to fetch the chart (like the repository URL).
      • values: A set of values to override the default chart values. It should be a mapping of configuration options relevant to the chart.
    3. Namespace: Specify the namespace in which to deploy the chart. If not specified, it will be installed in the default namespace.

    4. Release Name: Optionally, you can specify a release name for the Helm chart. If you do not provide a release name, Pulumi will generate one for you.

    Here is an example of a Pulumi TypeScript program that deploys a "kanister-elasticsearch" Helm chart on a Kubernetes cluster:

    import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; import * as kubernetes from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Initialize a Kubernetes provider instance using the current context from kubectl. const provider = new kubernetes.Provider("provider", { // If you have multiple contexts in your kubeconfig and want to select a specific one, // you can do so by specifying the context name here. // context: "your-kubeconfig-context-name", }); // Define a Helm Chart resource for the kanister-elasticsearch chart. const elasticsearchChart = new kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart("kanister-elasticsearch", { // The repo URL where the Helm chart is located. repo: "kanister", // The specific chart to install. chart: "kanister-elasticsearch", // Optionally specify a specific version of the Helm chart. If not set, the latest will be used. version: "1.0.0", // Override default configuration values here. For the `kanister-elasticsearch` chart, refer to the chart's values.yaml or the documentation. values: { // Provide chart-specific configuration here. }, // Define which namespace the chart should be deployed into. namespace: "default", }, { provider }); // To access the Helm chart after deployment, you can export related information. export const chartName = elasticsearchChart.metadata.name; export const chartNamespace = elasticsearchChart.metadata.namespace;

    This Pulumi program defines a Kubernetes provider that interacts with your cluster and declares a Chart resource representing the "kanister-elasticsearch" Helm chart installation.

    Once you run pulumi up with this program, Pulumi will perform the necessary steps to install the Helm chart into your Kubernetes cluster. You can customize any part of the configuration by setting the appropriate values in the values property, which corresponds to the Helm chart's values.yaml.

    Make sure to check the Helm chart's documentation for the correct repository URL and any specific configuration parameters required by the "kanister-elasticsearch" chart. Also, ensure that your Kubernetes context is correctly selected if you're managing multiple clusters or configurations.
