Jwt plugin change db-mode to db-less-mode


I used DB(postgesql) for the credential and consumer information of jwt plugin.
I am working on converting kong in DB mode to db-less mode.

In DB mode, I added consumer and credential through admin api and confirmed that JWT plugin works properly.

I set referring to the above page, but JWT plugin gives 401 (Unauthorized) response.
The published JWT contains “iss = aaa.com”.

Below is my configuration.

indent preformatted text by 4 spaces

apiVersion: configuration.konghq.com/v1
kind: KongPlugin
name: jwt
global: “false”
enabled: true
plugin: jwt

apiVersion: configuration.konghq.com/v1
kind: KongConsumer
name: global-consumer
username: GlobalConsumer
custom_id: GlobalConsumer

apiVersion: configuration.konghq.com/v1
kind: KongCredential
name: global-consumer-credentials
consumerRef: global-consumer
type: jwt
key: “aaa.com
rsa_public_key: |
-----END PUBLIC KEY-----
algorithm: RS256

Two questions:

  1. Do you see error in logs of Kong Ingress Controller upon creation of that credential?
  2. Can you exec into the Kong container and ensure that Kong has the credential correctly populated inside? (GET /jwts on the Admin API.)

1, There is no log about creation of that credential

2. I checked admin api but no message found
I also checked consumer admin api but no message found

admin api : https://xx.xx.xx.xx:8001/consumers/GlobalConsumer/jwt
** [Result] **
there is no message
message: “Not found”

I also check DB-mode both of admin apis
That work correctly.

ref. kong-ingress-controller is different
DB mode : : 0.5.0
DB-less mode : 0.6.0

I set the plugin and package_path both of kong.conf and env in deployment and _helper files
because I already set the plugin and package_path in kong.conf file but this is not working.
so I added env in deployment and _helper files

Do I need any additional configuration in kong.conf file when I change to db-less mode?

The correct Admin API endpoint is:

curl -k https://localhost:8444/

Please use that to check the configuration of Kong.

No, all you need is database=off.

I already set “database = off” in kong.conf

I set the node port 8001
I changed admin node port 8001 to 8444 but there is no change.
