Question

How do I setup an ingress on digitalocean kubernetes

I’ve been trying out the new kubernetes product by DO and so far it’s going great. While I can create LoadBalancer services, I don’t seem to be able to create an ingress. My config:

apiVersion: extensions/v1beta1
kind: Ingress
metadata:
  name: loadbalancer-https
spec:
  tls:
    - hosts:
        - demo1.example.com
      secretName: ssl-example-com
  rules:
    - host: demo1.example.com
      http:
        paths:
          - path: /admin
            backend:
              serviceName: admin
              servicePort: 3000
          - path: /user
            backend:
              serviceName: user
              servicePort: 3001
          - path: /
            backend:
              serviceName: root
              servicePort: 80

The ssl secret is already deployed to the cluster (and the actual hostname has been replaced with ‘example’ here). I’ve also tried without ssl and also tried with kubernetes.io/ingress.class: "nginx" meta tag. Neither seemed to work. Am I missing something?

Hi, and thanks for your question!

We actually just published How to Set Up an Nginx Ingress with Cert-Manager on DigitalOcean Kubernetes. Hope this tutorial helps!

The generic steps worked for me:

kubectl apply -f https://raw.githubusercontent.com/kubernetes/ingress-nginx/master/deploy/mandatory.yaml
kubectl apply -f https://raw.githubusercontent.com/kubernetes/ingress-nginx/master/deploy/provider/cloud-generic.yaml

The verification steps from the doc checked out, and I can see the load balancer the process created in the do dashboard.

You can probably do the same with a single step via the Helm installation (also documented on the nginx-ingress/deploy page). That’s how we deploy it at work (on an ACS cluster in Azure).

@aaroncoinmode @maartje Thank you so much for your responses.

I have the same issue. I am new in Kubernates…

I already took a look at the pages you mentioned. And there are generic command and cloud specific command. And there is no mention about cloud specific command for DO. Does it mean I only need to run generic command?
