Helm value reference

Manage your Gloo Platform installation by using the gloo-platform and gloo-platform-crds Helm charts. You can use this reference documentation to customize your Helm installation values for various Gloo Platform components. To learn how to update your installation values through these Helm charts, see the upgrade guide.

In Gloo Platform version 2.5 and later, the legacy ‘gloo-mesh-enterprise’, ‘gloo-mesh-agent’, ‘gloo-mesh-managed-installations’, and other included Helm charts are unsupported. If you installed Gloo Platform by using these legacy Helm charts, or if you used ‘meshctl’ version 2.2 or earlier to install Gloo Platform, you must migrate your legacy installation to the new ‘gloo-platform’ Helm chart.
