1. Deploy the cyberark-sidecar-injector helm chart on Rancher


    To deploy the cyberark-sidecar-injector Helm chart on Rancher, you will need to interact with a Rancher Kubernetes cluster and use Pulumi to apply configurations to it. The following steps outline the process you will take using Pulumi with TypeScript:

    1. Set up a Pulumi project and stack specific to your environment and the Rancher Kubernetes cluster.
    2. Utilize the rancher2 Pulumi provider to authenticate and interact with your Rancher instance.
    3. Deploy the cyberark-sidecar-injector chart using Pulumi's Helm support.

    Here is a Pulumi program in TypeScript that demonstrates how to deploy a Helm chart on a Rancher-managed Kubernetes cluster.

    import * as rancher2 from "@pulumi/rancher2"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; // Create a Rancher2 provider instance using the credentials for your Rancher server. const rancherProvider = new rancher2.Provider("my-rancher", { apiUrl: "https://<your-rancher-server-url>", accessKey: "<your-rancher-access-key>", secretKey: "<your-rancher-secret-key>", }); // Get a reference to the Rancher Kubernetes cluster that you want to manage. // Make sure you replace '<your-cluster-id>' with the actual ID of your cluster. const cluster = rancher2.getCluster({ id: "<your-cluster-id>", }, { provider: rancherProvider }); // Set up a Kubernetes provider instance to interact with the Rancher Kubernetes cluster. const k8sProvider = new k8s.Provider("k8s-provider", { kubeconfig: cluster.kubeConfig, }); // Define the namespace where the Helm chart will be installed. const namespace = new k8s.core.v1.Namespace("cyberark-namespace", { metadata: { name: "cyberark", }, }, { provider: k8sProvider }); // Deploy the cyberark-sidecar-injector Helm chart into the namespace. const chart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("cyberark-sidecar-injector", { chart: "cyberark-sidecar-injector", version: "<chart-version>", // Specify the chart version you wish to deploy fetchOpts: { repo: "https://cyberark.github.io/helm-charts", // The Helm chart repository }, namespace: namespace.metadata.name, // Values to configure the Helm chart. // Replace with any values required for your specific setup. values: { // Configuration values }, }, { provider: k8sProvider }); // Export the namespace name of the installed chart export const cyberarkNamespace = namespace.metadata.name;

    This program performs the following:

    • It starts by importing the necessary Pulumi packages for Rancher2, Kubernetes, and general Pulumi functionality.
    • It creates a new rancher2.Provider which is required to authenticate with your Rancher server using the API URL and your access keys.
    • A Kubernetes provider is set up to interact with the cluster managed by Rancher, using the kubeConfig provided by the Rancher2 cluster.
    • Next, a new Namespace resource is created in Kubernetes where the Helm chart will be deployed.
    • The cyberark-sidecar-injector Helm chart is then deployed using Pulumi's helm.v3.Chart.
    • You will need to replace the placeholders (<your-rancher-server-url>, <your-rancher-access-key>, <your-rancher-secret-key>, <your-cluster-id>, and <chart-version>) with actual values specific to your environment.
    • Optionally, you can provide configuration values for the Helm chart under the values property.
    • Lastly, the namespace created for the Helm chart is exported as an output of the Pulumi program.

    Before running this Pulumi program, ensure the following:

    • The Pulumi CLI is installed and configured for use.
    • Your Rancher server is running and you have the necessary access keys.
    • You have permissions to deploy resources on the Kubernetes cluster managed by Rancher.
    • The cyberark-sidecar-injector Helm chart exists in the specified repository and <chart-version> matches the version you want to deploy.

    To execute this Pulumi program:

    1. Save the TypeScript code to a file in a Pulumi project, for example, index.ts.
    2. Navigate to the directory containing your Pulumi project.
    3. Run pulumi up to initiate the deployment process.

    Follow the command-line prompts to authenticate if needed, preview the changes, and confirm the deployment. When confirmed, Pulumi will perform the necessary actions to deploy the Helm chart to your Rancher-managed Kubernetes cluster.
