Hi channel , Im a newbie with pulumi . I have already a deployed helm chart on my local cluster ( bitnami/nginx ) without pulumi and im trying to migrate my deployment to pulumi stack . when reading into pulumi documentation : they talk only about converting yaml file ( manifest ) and not helm chart converting any idea how to start with this ?

if you want to convert the helm chart, you can use
helm template
to generate YAML, and then input it into https://www.pulumi.com/kube2pulumi/
you can also install the helm chart directly with Pulumi if that's preferable

thanks for your quick reply @billowy-army-68599 solution (1) : converting using helm template : if we use that solution we will get a list kubernetes object and when the chart is upgraded we will lose the link between the chart and all object deployed . we will deal with a bunch of object ( native kubernetes object) instead of a helm chart object . ==> please correct if i'm wrong

helm charts create native Kubernetes object
if you update the chart in Pulumi, it updates all the objects
try it and see!

@refined-russia-81345 do those objects exist on your Kubernetes server? that's what it's telling you - you can't create a new deployment with the same name

if you want to update an existing one, you need to import it
