Access external API endpoint with Kong Ingress controller

Hi All,

Can we access an external API endpoint outside the Kubernetes cluster using Ingress resource? If so, how to configure it?

I can across documentation on Forward Proxy Advanced plugin, but couldn’t find any docs on it’s availability for production in db-less mode.

Please note that my environment is a Kong Ingress controller in db-less mode.

Thanks!
Best Regards,
Danuka

You can use ExternalName Service in k8s to achieve this.

See this guide: https://github.com/Kong/kubernetes-ingress-controller/blob/master/docs/guides/using-external-service.md
