Ingress Gateway-only installation?

Hi there,

Turns out that for starters, I only need the Ingress gateway. I will need the service mesh later on. Is there a documented way to install just the Ingress gateway, hopefully without having to install everything only to remove the ones I do not need post-installation. But if that’s the only way, so be it.

I’m looking for a scriptable or at least a clear step-by-step procedure that we can apply to all environments, including production.

Thanks in advance,

You may use the default profile with telemetry disabled, which will save most of the overhead (if performance is your concern). Also the default profile is the well tested version for production use case.

For specific command,

istioctl manifest apply --set telemetry.enabled=false
