1. Public IP for Azure Kubernetes Service Ingress Controllers


    If you want to assign a public IP address to an Ingress Controller in Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), you can provision a public IP resource using Pulumi and Azure's native cloud provider. We'll use the PublicIPAddress resource from the azure-native package. This public IP can then be associated with your Kubernetes Ingress Controller to expose it to the internet.

    The first step is to create a public IP address. You'll specify the necessary details like the resource group it belongs to, the location (Azure region), and any optional configurations such as tags or DNS settings.

    The next step would typically involve configuring your Kubernetes Ingress Controller to use the newly created public IP address, which often requires the use of annotations on your Ingress resource. However, the actual steps for this part can vary depending on the specific Ingress controller you're using and how you're managing your Kubernetes resources. Since Pulumi is often used in conjunction with kubectl or a Kubernetes Operator for resource management within the cluster, this code will not cover the Kubernetes side of things.

    Instead, I'll show you how to create a public IP address using Pulumi and Azure Native provider.

    import pulumi import pulumi_azure_native as azure_native # Create a Public IP for AKS Ingress Controller # We need to provide a resource group where to create this public IP. # Assume the resource group is already created. # Replace `resource_group_name` with the name of your Resource Group. public_ip = azure_native.network.PublicIPAddress( "aksIngressPublicIp", resource_group_name="myResourceGroup", # Replace with your resource group name location="eastus", # Replace with your desired Azure region public_ip_allocation_method=azure_native.network.IPAllocationMethod.STATIC, sku=azure_native.network.PublicIPAddressSkuArgs( name=azure_native.network.PublicIPAddressSkuName.STANDARD ) ) # Export the IP address pulumi.export('public_ip_address', public_ip.ip_address)

    Here's what the code does:

    • It imports the necessary Pulumi modules for creating Azure resources.
    • It creates a new instance of a PublicIPAddress resource, named aksIngressPublicIp.
    • It specifies the necessary parameters, such as the resource group name (myResourceGroup, which you should replace with your actual resource group name), the Azure region (eastus, which you should replace with your actual Azure region), allocation method, and SKU.
    • Finally, it exports the assigned IP address so you can reference it later, for example, when setting up DNS or configuring your Kubernetes Ingress.

    Note: This code assumes that you've already set up the Azure provider with Pulumi and have an existing resource group. You will need to replace placeholder values with actual values that suit your setup. Also, remember that managing Kubernetes resources often requires a separate set of configuration steps that are performed either through kubectl command-line tool, the AKS dashboard, or other Kubernetes management tools.

    After deploying this code with Pulumi, the provisioned IP address can be connected to your AKS Ingress Controller using Kubernetes configurations, which is specific to the type of Ingress Controller you have installed.
