Is it possible to install custom Go Plugins in the K8s ingress controller


I noticed with the release of Kong v2 Go plugins are now supported. This is great and something we’d like to take advantage of. We’re using the latest Kong Ingress Controller are Go plugins supported? All the documentaion points to Lua still.

Many thanks


Yes. Kong Ingress Controller doesn’t care if a plugin is written in Go or Lua. All you need to ensure is that the plugin is installed in Kong’s Docker image and loaded into Kong. Once the plugin is available, you can use KongPlugin resource to configure it.

Thank you @hbagdi that’s brilliant news. I’ll get started right away.
