    View Code Deploy

    This example deploys a container running the Jenkins continuous integration system onto a running Kubernetes cluster using Pulumi and @pulumi/kubernetes.

    Running the App

    Follow the steps in Pulumi Installation and Setup and Configuring Pulumi Kubernetes to get setup with Pulumi and Kubernetes.

    Note: The code in this repo assumes you are deploying to a cluster that supports the LoadBalancer service type. This includes most cloud providers as well as Docker for Mac Edge w/ Kubernetes. If not (for example if you are targeting minikube or your own custom Kubernetes cluster), replace type: "LoadBalancer" with type: "ClusterIP" in jenkins.ts. See the Kubernetes Services docs for more details.

    Create a new stack:

        $ pulumi stack init dev

    Create configuration keys for the root username and password for the Jenkins instance we are about to create:

        $ pulumi config set username <your desired username>
        $ pulumi config set password <your desired password> --secret

    Configure Kubernetes to run without Minikube:

        $ pulumi config set isMinikube false

    Preview the deployment of the application:

        $ pulumi preview
        Previewing update (dev):
             Type                                         Name                       Plan       
         +   pulumi:pulumi:Stack                          kubernetes-py-jenkins-dev  create     
         +   └─ jenkins:jenkins:Instance                  dev                        create     
         +      ├─ kubernetes:core:Service                dev-service                create     
         +      ├─ kubernetes:core:PersistentVolumeClaim  dev-pvc                    create     
         +      ├─ kubernetes:core:Secret                 dev-secret                 create     
         +      └─ kubernetes:apps:Deployment             dev-deploy                 create     
            + 6 to create

    Perform the deployment:

        $ pulumi up --skip-preview
        Updating (dev):
             Type                                         Name                       Status      
         +   pulumi:pulumi:Stack                          kubernetes-py-jenkins-dev  created     
         +   └─ jenkins:jenkins:Instance                  dev                        created     
         +      ├─ kubernetes:core:PersistentVolumeClaim  dev-pvc                    created     
         +      ├─ kubernetes:core:Service                dev-service                created     
         +      ├─ kubernetes:core:Secret                 dev-secret                 created     
         +      └─ kubernetes:apps:Deployment             dev-deploy                 created     
            external_ip: ""
            + 6 created
        Duration: 1m57s

    The deployment is complete! Use pulumi stack output external_ip to see the IP of the Service that we just deployed:

        $ pulumi stack output external_ip

    The Jenkins instance we just deployed is reachable through port 80 of the external IP address. You can now visit in a Web browser to begin the first-install flow for your new Jenkins instance. You can use the username and password that you saved in your Pulumi config to log in to your new Jenkins instance.

    Note: If you are deploying to a cluster that does not support type: "LoadBalancer", and deployed the example using type: "ClusterIP" instead, run kubectl port-forward svc/jenkins 8080:80 to forward the cluster port to the local machine and access the service via localhost:8080.

    When you’re ready to be done with Jenkins, you can destroy the instance:

        $ pulumi destroy
            Destroying (dev):
             Type                                         Name                       Status

         -      ├─ kubernetes:core:Secret                 dev-secret                 deleted

         -      ├─ kubernetes:core:PersistentVolumeClaim  dev-pvc                    deleted     
         -      └─ kubernetes:apps:Deployment             dev-deploy                 deleted
