KongIngress Upstream unhealthy.interval value not reflecting

Hello Everyone,

It is regarding Kong Ingress controller and upstream configuration for healthchecks- healthy/unhealthy stats.
During initial testing it is observed that upstream field unhealthy-interval is always 0 (i.e. healthchecks.active.unhealthy.interval ref: https://docs.konghq.com/1.3.x/admin-api/#create-upstream) when configured via declarative approach (i.e. Kong IC).
It is observed that similar fixes are made at https://github.com/hbagdi/go-kong/pull/7

As a work around we can follow below approach/steps:

  1. create upstreams via declarative approach (Kong IC)
  2. update healthchecks.active.unhealthy.interval field (integer >=1 ) via kong-admin-api

Kindly suggest whether this is a right approach till we get a fix. Also help to understand whether this change is released in Kong-1.3 or planned to be released in future?

Hello Nitesh,

Welcome to Kong Nation!

Indeed. You are running into: https://github.com/hbagdi/go-kong/issues/6 which the above PR fixes.
Ingress Controller 0.6 will include that fix and is set to be released next month.

Hi Harry,
Thank you for warm welcome and quick updates… :slight_smile:
