Istio Kubernetes Ingress (not gateway) to HTTPS backend service

Hello All!

Could you please confirm, that it is NOT possible to configure the Istio Kubernetes Ingress (not the Istio ingress gateway) to forward traffic to a Kubernetes service exposing HTTPS endpoint?

That is the functionality available in the Nginx Ingress using "HTTPS"


Or is there a way to have an HTTPS backend exposed via pure Istio Kubernetes Ingress.

PS: In our set up we don’t have Istio service mesh available and can only rely on the Istio Kubernetes Ingress, unless we’ll have to fall back to Nginx ingress.

Thank you!

No, this is not part of the Ingress spec. It’s exposed in Istio through DestinationRule which does work with Ingress
