1. Deploy the suitecrm helm chart on Opensshift


    To deploy the SuiteCRM Helm chart on an OpenShift cluster using Pulumi, you'll use the kubernetes.helm.sh/v3.Chart resource from the Pulumi Kubernetes provider. This resource allows you to deploy Helm charts to a Kubernetes cluster, which in this case is an OpenShift cluster. Before deploying, make sure you have set up your OpenShift cluster and have configured kubectl to point to it. Also, ensure that Pulumi is installed and configured to use the Kubernetes provider.

    Here is a step-by-step guide, followed by the Pulumi TypeScript program:

    1. Define your OpenShift cluster's kubeconfig: Ensure Pulumi knows how to connect to your OpenShift cluster. This is typically done via the kubeconfig file which you must have configured using oc command-line tool or kubectl.

    2. Install Pulumi Kubernetes provider: Utilize the Pulumi Kubernetes provider to interact with your Kubernetes/OpenShift cluster. A Helm Chart resource will be defined in the Pulumi program to install SuiteCRM.

    3. Helm Chart resource: Use the Chart resource provided by the Pulumi Kubernetes provider to deploy SuiteCRM via its Helm chart. Specify the chart name, repository, and any custom values you want to configure.

    4. Run pulumi up: Execute pulumi up to preview and deploy the resources as per the Pulumi program.

    Here's the Pulumi TypeScript program to deploy SuiteCRM on OpenShift:

    import * as kubernetes from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Create the Helm Chart resource that will deploy SuiteCRM. // You can change the `repo` and `chart` values if SuiteCRM is hosted in a different repository. const suitecrmChart = new kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart("suitecrm", { chart: "suitecrm", version: "your-chart-version", // Replace with the version of SuiteCRM Helm chart you wish to deploy. repo: "your-helm-repo", // Replace with the name of the Helm repository that hosts the SuiteCRM chart. // Set any custom values for the Helm chart. values: { // These are just example values. Replace these with the actual values required by the SuiteCRM Helm chart. // You can find these in the chart's `values.yaml` file or in the chart's documentation. service: { type: "ClusterIP" }, ingress: { enabled: true, annotations: { "kubernetes.io/ingress.class": "nginx" }, path: "/", hosts: [ "suitecrm.example.com" // Replace with your SuiteCRM domain. ] }, // Add more custom values if needed. }, // Specify the namespace to deploy to. namespace: "default" // Change to whichever namespace you prefer. }, { provider: yourK8sProvider }); // Replace `yourK8sProvider` with your Kubernetes provider if necessary. // Export the SuiteCRM URL by querying the created resources once deployed. export const suitecrmURL = suitecrmChart.getResourceProperty("v1/Service", "suitecrm-suitecrm", "status").apply(status => { const ingress = status.loadBalancer.ingress[0]; return ingress.ip ? `http://${ingress.ip}` : `http://${ingress.hostname}`; });

    This program creates a Helm chart deployment of SuiteCRM within your OpenShift cluster. Ensure you replace placeholder values like your-chart-version, your-helm-repo, and domain information with actual values that you wish to use.

    After writing your Pulumi program in a index.ts file, you can run pulumi up to preview and deploy your changes. If the preview looks correct, select "yes" to proceed with the deployment.

    If you're running into any issues with your OpenShift permissions or related to Helm chart configurations, consult the OpenShift documentation or the SuiteCRM Helm chart documentation for troubleshooting.
