We have cronjobs that make extensive use of another service. So it would make sense for the pods created from these cronjobs be part of the service mesh. But I don’t understand how:
In https://istio.io/docs/ops/deployment/requirements/ it is stated that “Service association : A pod must belong to at least one Kubernetes service even if the pod does NOT expose any port. If a pod belongs to multiple Kubernetes services, the services cannot use the same port number for different protocols, for instance HTTP and TCP.”
How would I achieve that with a cronjob?
Then there is the question of quitting the istio-proxy when the job is done, but I think I have figured that out by executing
curl -sf -XPOST http://127.0.0.1:15020/quitquitquit in the end.
