1. Deploy the motioneye helm chart on Opensshift


    To deploy the motioneye Helm chart on an OpenShift cluster using Pulumi, you can use the kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart resource from the Pulumi Kubernetes provider. This resource allows you to deploy applications on Kubernetes using Helm charts.

    Before you begin, ensure that you have the following prerequisites in place:

    • Pulumi CLI installed.
    • Access to an OpenShift cluster with oc CLI configured.
    • Helm chart repository containing the motioneye chart or the URL of the motioneye chart.

    Here are the steps for deploying the motioneye Helm chart:

    1. Import necessary libraries and create a new Pulumi stack.
    2. Configure the Kubernetes provider to communicate with the OpenShift cluster.
    3. Use the kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart resource to deploy the motioneye Helm chart.

    Below is the Pulumi TypeScript program that carries out the steps mentioned:

    import * as pulumi from '@pulumi/pulumi'; import * as kubernetes from '@pulumi/kubernetes'; // Step 1: Initialize a Pulumi project and stack for your OpenShift environment. const projectName = 'motioneyeOpenshiftDeployment'; // Create a Pulumi project. const project = new pulumi.Project(projectName, { runtime: 'nodejs', }); // Step 2: Set up the Kubernetes provider to point to your OpenShift cluster. // We assume that `oc` is already configured to connect to your OpenShift cluster. const k8sProvider = new kubernetes.Provider('openshiftK8s', { // If necessary, you can provide explicit configurations, // kubeconfig: '<path-to-kubeconfig-file>', // path to a kubeconfig file }); // Step 3: Deploy the motioneye Helm chart using the `Chart` resource. const motioneyeChart = new kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart('motioneye', { chart: 'motioneye', // The name of the chart, ensure that this chart is available in your Helm repo version: 'x.y.z', // Specify the version of the chart you wish to deploy // If the chart is not in the default Helm repository, you will need to specify `repo` as well. // repo: 'https://my-helm-repo.example.com/', // values: {}, // If you have any custom values you want to override in the Helm chart, specify them here }, { provider: k8sProvider }); // Step 4: Output resources // Optionally, you might want to export any endpoints or other critical information export const motioneyeServiceUrl = motioneyeChart.getResourceProperty( 'v1/Service', 'motioneye', 'status', 'loadBalancer', 'ingress', '0', 'ip'); // Note: The resource names in 'getResourceProperty' depend on the actual contents of the Helm Chart. // Now you can run `pulumi up` to perform the deployment. If you encounter any issues, // make sure that your Helm repository has the motioneye chart, and that your OpenShift cluster is accessible through `oc`.

    In the comments, you'll find the steps you need to follow to set up the Pulumi project. Make sure to replace the placeholders like 'x.y.z' with the actual version number of the motioneye Helm chart you wish to deploy. The values field is where you can customize the Helm chart further by overriding the default values - they're equivalent to what you would set in a custom values.yaml file for the Helm chart.

    Replace 'motioneye' with the resource name that matches the service in the motioneye Helm chart to obtain the service URL. The getResourceProperty function is used to extract resource properties once they're created or updated.

    To deploy this application:

    • Initialize a new Pulumi project with pulumi new.
    • Save this code in a file with a .ts extension.
    • Run pulumi up to perform the deployment.

    Make sure that your Pulumi stack is correctly configured to interact with your OpenShift cluster and that the motioneye chart is available in your configured Helm repository. If you're using a private or custom Helm repository, make sure to include the repo property with the URL of your repository in the Chart resource.
