Adding Service

What is a service?

Services are all sorts of ports that you want to add to your chart.

How to Setup

To setup a service, add the following section to the values.yaml manually and adapt as needed. You can also add multiple ports to a single service.

The type can be both Loadbalancer and ClusterIP depending on your needs.

enabled: true
# only needed for loadBalancer
loadBalancerIP: ""
type: "LoadBalancer"
enabled: true
port: 8080
targetPort: 80
# http is set by default so can be skipped
# protocol: http
enabled: true
port: 9090
targetPort: 90
protocol: tcp

In most charts there are already predefined services. You can change them to your needs (e.g. Loadbalancer/ClusterIP) as well as adding additional ones. Just make sure to choose a unique name.

Service requirements

Please be aware that most apps already have a primary service named main and at least 1 primary is required. It’s also important to note that all services added by the end user should set enabled on all ports and services to true.
