Exposing Service via Ingress

There are existing Kubernetes concepts which allows you to expose a single service. However, you can do so through an AppsCode Ingress as well, simply by specifying a default backend with no rules.

apiVersion: voyager.appscode.com/v1beta1
kind: Ingress
metadata:
  name: test-ingress
  namespace: default
spec:
  backend:
    serviceName: test-service
    servicePort: '80'

This will create a load balancer forwarding all traffic to test-server service, unconditionally. The loadbalancer ip can be found inside Status Field of the loadbalancer described response. If there are other rules defined in Ingress then the loadbalancer will forward traffic to the test-server when no other rule is matched.

As Example:

apiVersion: voyager.appscode.com/v1beta1
kind: Ingress
metadata:
  name: test-ingress
  namespace: default
spec:
  backend:
    serviceName: test-service
    servicePort: '80'
  rules:
  - host: appscode.example.com
    http:
      paths:
      - backend:
          serviceName: test-service
          servicePort: '80'

Default Backend: An Ingress with no rules, like the one shown in the previous section, sends all traffic to a single default backend. You can use the same technique to tell a loadbalancer where to find your website’s 404 page, by specifying a set of rules and a default backend. Traffic is routed to your default backend if none of the Hosts in your Ingress matches the Host in request header, and/or none of the paths match url of request.

This Ingress will forward traffic to test-service if request comes from the host appscode.example.com only. Other requests will be forwarded to default backend.

Default Backend also supports headerRules and rewriteRules.
