We have the flow like below
Consumer–>LB–>Kong Servers–>Upstream API
Here LB need a https monitoring service on Kong which returns 200 response code. So we need a loopback service/api which responds to LB . How we can achieve this in Kong.
It sounds like the
/status endpoint on the admin api might fit your needs.
Another Option Tieski gave in a different topic was creating a proxy endpoint and placing the request termination plugin on top of it. Using the /status endpoint works too but its always doing the underlying nginx stub_status call which does a little nginx processing under the hood.
Good reminder @jeremyjpj0916 !
