1. Deploy the istio-ratelimit-operator helm chart on Opensshift


    To deploy the Istio RateLimit Operator Helm chart on an OpenShift cluster using Pulumi, you would use the kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart resource. This resource allows you to deploy Helm charts to a Kubernetes cluster, which OpenShift is built upon.

    The Istio RateLimit Operator is a Kubernetes operator that allows you to configure rate limiting through Istio. It is managed as a Helm chart which you can deploy to your OpenShift cluster.

    Here's how you could write a Pulumi program in TypeScript to perform this deployment:

    1. First, ensure you have helm installed on your system and the Helm chart repository that contains the Istio RateLimit Operator. You would potentially add the relevant Helm repository using a command such as helm repo add. However, this step is assumed to be completed outside of this Pulumi program.
    2. Ensure you have access to an OpenShift cluster and are logged in (this can be verified using oc status).
    3. The program below assumes that the Pulumi Kubernetes provider is configured to point to your OpenShift cluster.

    Now, let's write the program.

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Deploying the Istio RateLimit Operator using the Helm chart const rateLimitOperator = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("istio-ratelimit-operator", { // Specify the chart repository and name chart: "istio-ratelimit-operator", version: "x.y.z", // Replace with the exact chart version you want to deploy fetchOpts: { repo: "https://your-helm-chart-repo", // Replace with the actual Helm chart repository URL }, // Specify the namespace where the operator will be deployed (optional) namespace: "istio-system", // Values to pass to the Helm chart values: { // Your specific values here }, }); // Export the app's external IP address, if appropriate/needed. export const operatorName = rateLimitOperator.getResourceProperty("v1/Service", "istio-ratelimit-operator", "metadata").apply(m => m.name);


    • We import the Kubernetes package from Pulumi, which is fundamental for interacting with Kubernetes clusters.
    • We create a new Helm chart resource using new k8s.helm.v3.Chart.
    • The chart option specifies the name of the Helm chart we want to deploy.
    • The version option specifies the version of the Helm chart to use. You might need to find the particular version you wish to use or choose the latest one.
    • The fetchOpts option includes the repo field, where you specify the URL of the Helm repository that contains the Istio RateLimit Operator.
    • We set the namespace where we want to deploy the operator. This is often the istio-system namespace if it's being used alongside Istio, but it could be any other namespace depending on your configuration.
    • The values field allows you to specify any custom configuration that the Helm chart accepts. This would be specific to the Istio RateLimit Operator chart.

    This Pulumi program provides the basis for deploying the Istio RateLimit Operator to an OpenShift cluster. Ensure to replace the placeholder values with actual data from your environment, like the chart version and repository URL, as well as any specific configuration values required for your RateLimit Operator deployment.

    After writing this code in a index.ts file, you can use the Pulumi CLI to deploy it to your OpenShift cluster with the following commands:

    pulumi up

    This command triggers Pulumi to perform the deployment based on the TypeScript program defined. If successful, it will output the name of the Istio RateLimit Operator service, assuming you're exporting this information as shown in the program.
