3.6 Deploying our Application Stack

First, add the StackReference to the cluster stack, which is used to get the kubeconfig from its stack output. This is a reference to the project created in the [previous lab].

pulumi config set clusterStackRef workshops/eks-infrastructure/dev

Replace “workshops” from above command with your Pulumi username.

Deploy Everything:

pulumi up

This will show you a preview and, after selecting yes, the application will be deployed:

List the pods in your namespace, again replacing eks-demo-apps with the namespace you chose earlier:

kubectl get pods --namespace eks-demo-apps

And you should see a single replica:

NAME                                READY   STATUS    RESTARTS   AGE
