Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) Cluster using the native Azure Provider | TypeScript

View Code Deploy

This example deploys an AKS cluster, creates an Azure Active AD application, creates a Service Principal and sets credentials to manage access to the cluster.

Deploying the App

To deploy your infrastructure, follow the below steps.


  1. Install Pulumi
  2. Install node.js
  3. Configure Azure Credentials


After cloning this repo, from this working directory, run these commands:

  1. Create a new stack, which is an isolated deployment target for this example:

    $ pulumi stack init dev
  2. Next, install the dependencies:

    $ npm install
  3. Set the Azure region location to use:

    $ pulumi config set azure-native:location westus2
  4. Stand up the cluster by invoking pulumi

    $ pulumi up
  5. After 3-4 minutes, your cluster will be ready, and the kubeconfig YAML you’ll use to connect to the cluster will be available as an output. You can save this kubeconfig to a file like so:

    $ pulumi stack output kubeconfig --show-secrets > kubeconfig.yaml

    Once you have this file in hand, you can interact with your new cluster as usual via kubectl:

    $ KUBECONFIG=./kubeconfig.yaml kubectl get nodes
  6. From there, feel free to experiment. Simply making edits and running pulumi up will incrementally update your stack.

  7. Once you’ve finished experimenting, tear down your stack’s resources by destroying and removing it:

    $ pulumi destroy --yes
    $ pulumi stack rm --yes
