Kong Retries When Pointed to an ALB

#1

We currently Have load balanced in an alb with our services set as old (api’s),currently migrating to services on v0.14. All of our services are on ecs behind ALBs and upstream urls in Kong are set to the ALB address:ports. We have the file-logs plugin turned on and recently we’ve seen that Kong does not seem to be retrying in the case of 5xx errors. When we look at the logs we only get a single entry in the tries array like so.

"tries": [
    {
        "balancer_latency": 0,
        "port": 443,
        "balancer_start": 1546632269397,
        "ip": "55.84.126.213"
    }
]

This also seems to be happening for the endpoints that we’ve moved from api’s to services. Is there something else we need to do?
