Helm is a package manager for Kubernetes that automates the release and management of software on Kubernetes. Emissary-ingress can be installed via a Helm chart with a few simple steps, depending on if you are deploying for the first time, upgrading Emissary-ingress from an existing installation, or migrating from Emissary-ingress.
The Emissary-ingress Helm chart is hosted by Datawire and published at
Start by adding this repo to your helm client with the following command:
helm repo add datawire https://app.getambassador.iohelm repo update
When you run the Helm chart, it installs Emissary-ingress.
Install the Emissary-ingress CRDs.
Before installing Emissary-ingress 2.3.1 itself, you must configure your Kubernetes cluster to support the
getambassador.io/v2configuration resources. This is required.shellkubectl apply -f https://app.getambassador.io/yaml/emissary/2.3.1/emissary-crds.yamlkubectl wait --timeout=90s --for=condition=available deployment emissary-apiext -n emissary-system
Install the Emissary-ingress Chart with the following command:shellhelm install -n emissary --create-namespace \emissary-ingress datawire/emissary-ingress && \kubectl rollout status -n emissary deployment/emissary-ingress -w
Emissary-ingress shold now be successfully installed and running, but in order to get started deploying Services and test routing to them you need to configure a few more resources.
ListenerResource is required to configure which ports the Emissary-ingress pods listen on so that they can begin responding to requests.
MappingResouce is used to configure routing requests to services in your cluster.
HostResource configures TLS termination for enablin HTTPS communication.
