I’m configuring HTTPS for a website running in k8s cluster. For that I used the instructions from How To Set Up an Nginx Ingress on DigitalOcean Kubernetes Using Helm and How to Set Up an Nginx Ingress with Cert-Manager on DigitalOcean Kubernetes. In both cases they involve cert-manager.
At the same time I found out that SSL Termination on LoadBalancer side described How to Configure SSL Termination works fine for me. It even supports auto-renewal.
I wonder, why would I need to go with cert-manager approach, which looks more complicated?
