configuring ssl and protocols in loadbalancer from kubernetes

I am trying to get my load balancer configured from kubernetes

I have been told that the way to do this is by using annotations

I am using helm to install my load balancer and nginx ingress: stable/nginx-ingress

The way to configure that is by using the values.yaml file

I have the following in my values.yaml:

    annotations: "https" "true" "cert-id-from-do-api"
    labels: {}
    clusterIP: ""

You can see that it has taken inside my k8s dashboard as it shows up in the annotations section for my load balancer

However, after waiting a fair amount of time the load balancer isn’t updated in my DO dashboard.

Has anyone got this working?

Hey friend,

Great question! I’m not an expert on this particular subject but I wanted to get you an answer. This is what I received from Nicholas on our support team:

“Can they share their full manifest or maybe open a ticket if they don’t want to do that on Community? They should only need to create a kind: Service with type: LoadBalancer, but nginx-ingress will do that automatically and update the LB based on whatever services they expose and the kind: Ingress they create.”
