Organizing VirtualServices and Gateways (x-post)



I’m pretty new and I’ve read and followed the following guide about Istio custom gateways.

  • How should Istio Gateways and VirtualServices be organized within Namespaces?
  • Is it correct that both the Gateway and the VirtualService needs to be organized within the same Namespace?
  • Should I configure my custom Gateway in the same Namespaces as the backing Service and Deployment for my custom gateway?
  • Should I configure my custom Gateway multiple times against the same backing Service and Deployment?
