Kiali - upstream connect error or disconnect/reset before headers

Hi, I am working on Istio 1.0.5 and following this link/doc to access the Kiali dashboard using a gateway. Using the Insecure access (HTTP) YAML's I am able to access Grafana, Prometheus and Tracing using ClusterIP:nodePort.

But the Kiali endpoint gives an error,

upstream connect error or disconnect/reset before headers 

Command kubectl get svc istio-ingressgateway -n istio-system shows below ports,


I can access Grafana at http://33.33.333.33:31312, Prometheus at http://33.33.333.33:31311, Tracing at http://33.33.333.33:31313

Kiali is mapped to 15029:31314/TCP and is not accessible on http://33.33.333.33:31314

I am able to access Kiali on the Openshift HTTPS route without any issue.

I am using Openshift v3.9,

oc v3.9.0+191fece
kubernetes v1.9.1+a0ce1bc657
Istio -
Version: 1.0.5
GitRevision: c1707e45e71c75d74bf3a5dec8c7086f32f32fad
GolangVersion: go1.10.4

Note - I understand I am running v1.0.5 and referring to v1.4.0 documentation. But I made the required port changes in the istio-ingressgateway service yaml by which tracing is working but kiali isn’t,

    - name: http2
      nodePort: 31380
      port: 80
      protocol: TCP
      targetPort: 80

    - name: http2-grafana
      nodePort: 31312
      port: 15031
      protocol: TCP
      targetPort: 15031
    - name: http2-tracing
      nodePort: 31313
      port: 15032
      protocol: TCP
      targetPort: 15032
    - name: http2-kiali
      nodePort: 31314
      port: 15029
      protocol: TCP
      targetPort: 15029

I’m not sure but I think i remember an issue such that the dashboard kiali failed to invoke due to an http/https mismatch. Not sure if that’s your issue but I know it was resolved in later releases.
