Service Catalog

Ambassador Cloud's default landing page is the service catalog. This displays all the Kubernetes services in your connected clusters.

The service catalog allows you to see the basic details for each of your services and service groups.

Services

A Kubernetes service is an exposed application running on a workload (pods). It is an entrypoint to a version of your deployed application with an IP address and a port.

In the Service Catalog, each Ambassador Service represents a collection of Kubernetes services that may be in multiple environments. You can see these Ambassador Services represented across all environments on the cells page.

Service Groups

You can group services together in Service Groups to organize them according to the needs of your workflow. These groupings allow you to easily visualize and manage any of the multiple services that exist across your environments.
