NGINX ingress controller
This page describes the legacy CDM implementation, which will be deprecated in an upcoming release. We strongly recommend that you transition to the current CDM implementation as soon as possible.
Use the NGINX ingress controller when you deploy the CDM.
Remember, the CDM is a reference implementation and not for production use. When you create a project plan, you’ll need to determine which ingress controller to use in production.
After you’ve finished deploying the CDM, you can use the CDM as a sandbox to explore deployment with a different ingress controller.
To deploy an NGINX ingress controller in an EKS cluster:
Verify that you initialized your cluster by performing the steps in Kubernetes cluster creation.
If you did not set up your cluster using this technique, the cluster might be missing some required configuration.
Deploy the NGINX ingress controller in your cluster:
$ /path/to/forgeops/bin/ingress-controller-deploy.sh --eks Deploying Ingress Controller to EKS… namespace/nginx created Detected cluster of type: cdm-small Setting ingress pod count to 2 "ingress-nginx" has been added to your repositories Release "ingress-nginx" does not exist. Installing it now. NAME: ingress-nginx LAST DEPLOYED: Tue May 11 16:18:32 2021 NAMESPACE: nginx STATUS: deployed REVISION: 1 TEST SUITE: None NOTES: . . .
Check the status of the pods in the
nginxnamespace until all the pods are ready:
$ kubectl get pods --namespace nginx NAME READY STATUS RESTARTS AGE ingress-nginx-controller-bb566bf7b-c9kmk 1/1 Running 0 2m45s ingress-nginx-controller-bb566bf7b-l6dz6 1/1 Running 0 2m45s
Obtain the DNS name (shown under the EXTERNAL-IP column) of the load balancer :
$ kubectl get services --namespace nginx NAME TYPE CLUSTER-IP EXTERNAL-IP PORT(S) AGE ingress-nginx-controller LoadBalancer 10.100.43.88 ac5f2939. . .ca4.elb.us-east-1.amazonaws.com 80:30005/TCP,443:30770/TCP 62s ingress-nginx-controller-admission ClusterIP 10.100.2.215 <none> 443/TCP 62s
Wait for a couple of minutes for the load balancer to be assigned the external IP address. Then, get the external IP addresses of the load balancer. For example:
$ host ac5f2939. . .42d085.elb.us-east-1.amazonaws.com ac5f2939. . .42d085.elb.us-east-1.amazonaws.com has address 22.214.171.124
The host command returns several IP addresses. You can use any of the IP addresses when you modify your local hosts file in the next step for evaluation purposes. You must create an appropriate entry in your DNS servers for production deployments.
Add an entry to the /etc/hosts file to resolve the deployment FQDN used by the platform UIs and APIs. For example:
For ingress-ip-address, specify the external IP of the ingress controller service in the previous command.
