1. Deploy the ibm-itxa-prod helm chart on Rancher


    To deploy a Helm chart on a Rancher-managed Kubernetes cluster using Pulumi, you need to have access to a Rancher instance and the Kubernetes cluster where you want to deploy the Helm chart. We will assume that you have set up your Rancher environment and that you have the necessary permissions to deploy to the cluster.

    To deploy a Helm chart, we'll use the rancher2 provider within Pulumi. This provider allows us to interact with Rancher resources, including catalogs and Helm chart deployments.

    In this program, we’re going to:

    1. Create a CatalogV2 resource to add a catalog where the Helm chart is located.
    2. Use the AppV2 resource to deploy the Helm chart to our Kubernetes cluster within Rancher.

    Make sure you have installed the necessary Pulumi providers, such as @pulumi/rancher2, by running npm install @pulumi/rancher2.

    Below is the TypeScript program to deploy the ibm-itxa-prod Helm chart on a Rancher-managed Kubernetes cluster.

    import * as rancher2 from "@pulumi/rancher2"; // Replace these variables with appropriate values for your Rancher setup const clusterId = "your-cluster-id"; const catalogName = "your-catalog-name"; const catalogUrl = "your-catalog-url"; // The URL should point to where your Helm chart is located const namespace = "desired-namespace"; // Make sure this namespace exists in your cluster or create it const helmChartName = "ibm-itxa-prod"; const helmReleaseName = "ibm-itxa-prod-release"; const helmVersion = "the-chart-version"; // Specify the chart version you wish to deploy // Create a new catalog that points to the repository containing the Helm chart const catalog = new rancher2.CatalogV2(catalogName, { clusterId: clusterId, url: catalogUrl, // If your catalog is a Git repository and requires authentication, provide a secret to allow access // For example: // gitRepo: "https://github.com/your/repo", // gitBranch: "master", // secretName: "git-repo-secret", // secretNamespace: namespace, }); // Create an App resource to deploy the Helm chart const helmChartApp = new rancher2.AppV2(helmReleaseName, { clusterId: clusterId, // Specify the catalog created earlier catalogName: catalog.metadata.name, chartName: helmChartName, chartVersion: helmVersion, namespace: namespace, // Define values for the Helm chart if necessary // For example: // values: `key1: value1\nkey2: value2`, }); // Export the app's name and status export const helmAppReleaseName = helmChartApp.metadata.name; export const helmAppStatus = helmChartApp.status;

    This program creates a catalog resource pointing to the URL where your Helm chart is stored. It then deploys an app using the specified Helm chart from the catalog into the given namespace. The chartVersion should correspond to the specific version of the Helm chart that you want to deploy.

    Also, the values field in deploying the app allows you to specify any custom configuration needed for the Helm chart. This field accepts a multi-line string in YAML format that will be passed to the Helm chart during deployment.

    Remember that you might need to install the rancher2 provider, authenticate with Rancher, and set up your Kubernetes cluster in Rancher before executing this program. Consult the Rancher and Pulumi documentation for guidance on these tasks.

    After running this Pulumi program with pulumi up, your Helm chart should be deployed to your Rancher-managed Kubernetes cluster.
