1. Deploy the helm-tpl-test-blazor-demo helm chart on Rancher


    To deploy a Helm chart on Rancher using Pulumi, you need to interact with the Rancher 2.x system. The rancher2 Pulumi provider grants you the capability to manage Rancher resources, such as clusters, apps, catalogs, and among others. However, as of my knowledge cutoff, the Pulumi Registry Results did not match a resource or component directly capable of deploying a Helm chart on Rancher.

    In terms of Pulumi's capabilities, deploying a Helm chart typically involves the following steps:

    1. Ensuring you have a Kubernetes cluster managed by Rancher.
    2. Configuring access to this cluster.
    3. Using the Helm Release resource to deploy the chart to the cluster.

    Given the absence of a direct match from the search results, I will guide you on how you might leverage Pulumi to deploy a Helm chart on a Kubernetes cluster managed by Rancher. The program below will be generic because specific details about the helm-tpl-test-blazor-demo Helm chart, such as its repository, version, values, etc., aren't provided. You will need to fill this information based on your Helm chart specifics.

    Here's how you might set up the Pulumi code to deploy a Helm chart on a Kubernetes cluster managed by Rancher:

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; import * as rancher2 from "@pulumi/rancher2"; // You need the rancher2 provider to interact with Rancher. import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; // Instance of the Rancher2 provider to access your Rancher server. const rancherProvider = new rancher2.Provider("rancherProvider", { apiURL: "<RANCHER_API_URL>", // The URL of your Rancher server. accessKey: "<RANCHER_ACCESS_KEY>", // Access key generated in Rancher to authenticate API requests. secretKey: "<RANCHER_SECRET_KEY>", // Corresponding Secret key for the access key above. // Be sure to replace <...> with actual values. }); // Use an existing cluster managed by Rancher. const cluster = rancher2.getCluster({ name: "my-cluster-name", // The name of the managed Kubernetes cluster in Rancher. }); // Assuming your Pulumi program is already configured to use the same kubeconfig, // you can now interact with your cluster. Ensure this kubeconfig is correctly set up // in `~/.kube/config` or passed via `KUBECONFIG` environment variable. const k8sProvider = new k8s.Provider("k8sProvider", { kubeconfig: cluster.kubeConfig, // This will take the kubeconfig from the Rancher cluster. }); // Helm release resource to deploy the chart. const helmChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Release("helmChartResource", { chart: "helm-tpl-test-blazor-demo", // The name of the chart. repositoryOpts: { repo: "<HELM_CHART_REPOSITORY_URL>", // The repository where your Helm chart is located. }, version: "<HELM_CHART_VERSION>", // The version of the Helm chart to deploy. // You can also supply `values` in the form of a config map to customize your deployment. }, { provider: k8sProvider }); // When this program is run, Pulumi will instruct Rancher to deploy the specified Helm chart.


    1. Rancher Provider Setup: First, we set up the Rancher provider by specifying the API URL and the access/secret keys required to securely interact with the Rancher API.

    2. Cluster Reference: We reference a Kubernetes cluster managed by Rancher by its name, which will be used as the deployment target for the Helm chart.

    3. Kubernetes Provider Setup: The Kubernetes provider is set up using the kubeconfig obtained from the cluster reference. This configures the provider to interact with the Kubernetes cluster API.

    4. Helm Release: We define a Helm release, specifying the name of the chart, its version, and the repository URL. The chart will be deployed using the Kubernetes provider linked to the cluster managed by Rancher.

    Remember to replace placeholder values such as <RANCHER_API_URL>, <RANCHER_ACCESS_KEY>, <RANCHER_SECRET_KEY>, <HELM_CHART_REPOSITORY_URL>, and <HELM_CHART_VERSION> with actual values appropriate for your environment and Helm chart.

    When you run this Pulumi program with pulumi up, it will use the configuration to deploy the specified Helm chart to your Kubernetes cluster managed by Rancher.

    Please ensure values such as the API URL, keys, chart name, and version are kept secure and are not exposed in publicly accessible areas. You might want to use Pulumi secrets to keep your sensitive data safe.
