I succeeded in running SSL with nginx ingress and the load balancer but always when I need to include a new subdomain I generate a new SSL certificate, is there a way to use *.example.com with the load balancer to include all subdomains and just put the certificate ID into the ingress service

Hello @hatembentayeb

You cannot currently create wildcard SSL certificates using DigitalOcean’s Let’s Encrypt integration. Instead, choose the Bring your own certificate option to add custom wildcard certificates.

https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/accounts/security/certificates/

But this should be available in coming months, but there is no confined ETA that we can share at this point.
