Canary for certain customer group

Hi ,

If I want to create a canary release such that only certain consumers have access to lower weight upstreams, how can I achieve this ?

My use case is like giving access of new service to internal users only first. Afterwards , open it up to general users.

Thanks !

There is no canary release functionality built into the open source version of Kong so if you are using that then you would need to write your own custom plugin.

There is a canary release plugin available under the Enterprise version of Kong ( For info on that you’re best off getting in touch with someone from Kong HQ via the website.

You can use the ACL plugin to an ACL group and use the whitelisting feature.
