I have a frontend web server I’m hosting using DigitalOcean Kubernetes, and created a load balancer to serve traffic through. I created the load balancer using kubectl expose and then set it to redirect https traffic to http through the DigitalOcean website. I’ve noticed that every time I upgrade the Kubernetes cluster version it resets the load balancer’s settings, preventing any secure https traffic coming through. Is this intended behavior? How can I permanently setup https redirect? I’m assuming one of two things is happening:

  1. I’m not supposed to be able to edit load balancers that were created through Kubernetes, but this behavior was accidentally allowed through the UI

  2. The Kubernetes upgrade process inadvertently wipes all load balancer settings for balancers associated with the cluster that’s being upgraded

Any help is much appreciated, thanks!
