In this section, you can find reference documentation to help you customize the Helm values for various Gloo Platform components.

Gloo Platform Helm chart components

In Gloo Platform version 2.3 and later, all Gloo Platform components are available in a single gloo-platform Helm chart. To learn how to update the Helm values in your installation, see the upgrade guide.

Configuration options for the ‘gloo-platform’ Helm chart are organized into the following sections.

Legacy Gloo Helm chart components

In Gloo Platform version 2.3 and later, the ‘gloo-mesh-enterpise’, ‘gloo-mesh-agent’, ‘gloo-mesh-managed-installations’, and other included Helm charts are considered legacy. 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, migrate your legacy installation to the new ‘gloo-platform’ Helm chart.

The following table provides an overview of the legacy Gloo Helm chart components. You might want to modify some of these charts’ values for your Gloo setup.
