Set up services/routes in helm chart in DB mode

I am running kong in kubernetes using the helm chart and connecting to a postgres DB. However, I noticed that (according to the comments) I am not supposed to use the services or routes sections in the values.yaml file if I am not running in DB-less mode. What is the suggested approach for initializing services and routes when running in DB mode? I would prefer to initialize these in the helm chart if possible.

If you are using in the ingress controller mode, you should use Ingress resource to initialize.
If you using Kong stand-alone, you can use Admin API or decK to configure this.

Thanks for the response @hbagdi! Could you point me to documentation or an example of how to use the Ingress resource to initialize services/routes? should help you somewhat, although it doesn’t provide what you are looking for out of the box.
