I'm struggling to get the kubeconfig from, my EKS cluster built in another stack to work as an input to my k8s.NewProvider function. My code looks like:
Copy code
package main
  
import (
        k8s "<http://github.com/pulumi/pulumi-kubernetes/sdk/v3/go/kubernetes|github.com/pulumi/pulumi-kubernetes/sdk/v3/go/kubernetes>"
        helm "<http://github.com/pulumi/pulumi-kubernetes/sdk/v3/go/kubernetes/helm/v3|github.com/pulumi/pulumi-kubernetes/sdk/v3/go/kubernetes/helm/v3>"
        "<http://github.com/pulumi/pulumi/sdk/v3/go/pulumi|github.com/pulumi/pulumi/sdk/v3/go/pulumi>"
)

func main() {
        pulumi.Run(func(ctx *pulumi.Context) error {
                // get the kubeconfig from the EKS stack
                stackEKS, err := pulumi.NewStackReference(ctx, "EKS-test", nil)
                if err != nil {
                        return err
                }
                kubeConfig := stackEKS.GetOutput(pulumi.String("kubeconfig"))
                if err != nil {
                        return err
                }
                // create a provider with that config
                eksProvider, err := k8s.NewProvider(ctx, "eksprov", &k8s.ProviderArgs{
                        Kubeconfig: kubeConfig,
                })
                if err != nil {
                        return err
                }
                // deploy redis from the helm chart
                _, err = helm.NewChart(ctx, "redis", helm.ChartArgs{
                        Repo: pulumi.String("bitnami"),
                        Chart: pulumi.String("redis"),
                        Values: pulumi.Map{
                                "auth.password": pulumi.String("MyTopSecretPassword"),
                        },
                },
                pulumi.ProviderMap(map[string]pulumi.ProviderResource{
                        "kubernetes": eksProvider,
                }),)
                if err != nil {
                        return err
                }
                ctx.Export("output", kubeConfig)
                return nil
        })
}
If I comment out the from eksProvider down to the ctx.Export, I get what looks like a valid kubeconfig exported. But as is this results in a typing error:
./main.go:22:4: cannot use kubeConfig (type pulumi.AnyOutput) as type pulumi.StringPtrInput in field value:        pulumi.AnyOutput does not implement pulumi.StringPtrInput (missing ToStringPtrOutput method)
Can anyone help me understand what I need to do here?

An example:
Copy code
kubeconfig := infraStack.GetStringOutput(pulumi.String("kubeconfig"))
	k8sProvider, err := kubernetes.NewProvider(ctx, "k8s-ssa-provider", &kubernetes.ProviderArgs{
		Kubeconfig: kubeconfig,
	})
	if err != nil {
		return nil, err
	}

I think you want
GetStringOutput

ah.
I'll give that a try, thanks

I haven’t used pulumi in golang but that sounds like it
it’s possible you can try to cast the
AnyOutput
class to appropriate string class
golang is statically typed lang so it’s not gonna be happy with ANYthing 😉

GetStringOutput worked like a charm, Thanks @bored-table-20691
Hmmm actually I might have to go back on that, I got a different error and thought it was going to be from the next part fo the program (the helm bit) but apparently not.

Which seems to me like the output (which is a json blob) is not being a string and thus GetStringOutput errors like above. 🤔

What does your export look like?
From the other stack

Copy code
ubuntu@ip-172-31-44-42:~/docker/EKS/pulumi$ pulumi stack output kubeconfig
{"apiVersion":"v1","clusters":[{"cluster":{"certificate-authority-data":"<obfuscate>","server":"<https://A><here too><http://A4DD972F18.yl4.us-east-2.eks.amazonaws.com|A4DD972F18.yl4.us-east-2.eks.amazonaws.com>"},"name":"kubernetes"}],"contexts":[{"context":{"cluster":"kubernetes","user":"aws"},"name":"aws"}],"current-context":"aws","kind":"Config","users":[{"name":"aws","user":{"exec":{"apiVersion":"<http://client.authentication.k8s.io/v1alpha1|client.authentication.k8s.io/v1alpha1>","args":["eks","get-token","--cluster-name","Test-eksCluster-0c7f8e2"],"command":"aws"}}}]}
i.e. like a json blob of kubeconfig

No sorry. The code that exports it.

polite-napkin-90098

01/31/2022, 9:46 PM
ctx.Export("kubeconfig", cluster.Kubeconfig)
Copy code
cluster, err := eks.NewCluster(ctx, "Test", &eks.ClusterArgs{
			VpcId: pulumi.String(vpcid),
			PrivateSubnetIds: pulumi.StringArray{
				pulumi.String(private[0]),
				pulumi.String(private[1]),
				pulumi.String(private[2]),
			},
			PublicSubnetIds: pulumi.StringArray{
				pulumi.String(public[0]),

				pulumi.String(public[2]),
			},
			ClusterSecurityGroup: sg,
			EndpointPrivateAccess: pulumi.Bool(true),
			EndpointPublicAccess: pulumi.Bool(false),
			NodeAssociatePublicIpAddress: pulumi.Bool(false),
                })

You need to convert it to json prior to exporting. It's an abstract object right now.
Copy code
kubeconfig := cluster.Kubeconfig.ApplyT(func(kc interface{}) string {
		str, err := json.Marshal(kc)
		if err != nil {
			panic(err) // TODO
		}

		return string(str)
	}).(pulumi.StringOutput)
I'd do it prior to exporting

Ok I'll give that a try.
So the exported value now has a bunch of /s in it escaping some bits, but I still get the
Copy code
Diagnostics:
  pulumi:pulumi:Stack (redis-redis-test):
    # redis
    ./main.go:22:4: cannot use kubeConfig (type pulumi.AnyOutput) as type pulumi.StringPtrInput in field value:
        pulumi.AnyOutput does not implement pulumi.StringPtrInput (missing ToStringPtrOutput method)
when I try to use the imported value
no wait
it works when I then use GetStringOutput
thanks
seems a little convoluted but it works so I'm happy

The core issue is that the original value is an object and not a string, but the provider expects a string. It's confusing because the export looks like a string even though it's just doing the stringification for the console for you. You could convert it after importing or before exporting.

Thanks Itay, good explanation, I might switch the stringification to the import side at some point, but I expect it will stay as is for the time being.
