ExternalEndpoint defines a static IP for routing which exist outside the mesh. ExternalEndpoints provide a mechanism for direct resolution of the addresses backing ExternalServices.

Field Type Label Description
address string Address associated with the network endpoint without the port. Domain names can be used if and only if the resolution is set to DNS, and must be fully-qualified without wildcards. Use the form unix:///absolute/path/to/socket for Unix domain socket endpoints.
ports []networking.gloo.solo.io.ExternalEndpointSpec.Port repeated Set of ports on which the ExternalEndpoint's address receives traffic.
locality common.gloo.solo.io.Locality The locality associated with the endpoint. A locality corresponds to a failure domain (e.g., country/region/zone). Arbitrary failure domain hierarchies can be represented by separating each encapsulating failure domain by /. For example, the locality of an an endpoint in US, in US-East-1 region, within availability zone az-1, in data center rack r11 can be represented as us/us-east-1/az-1/r11. Istio will configure the sidecar to route to endpoints within the same locality as the sidecar. If none of the endpoints in the locality are available, endpoints parent locality (but within the same network ID) will be chosen. For example, if there are two endpoints in same network (networkID “n1”), say e1 with locality us/us-east-1/az-1/r11 and e2 with locality us/us-east-1/az-2/r12, a sidecar from us/us-east-1/az-1/r11 locality will prefer e1 from the same locality over e2 from a different locality. Endpoint e2 could be the IP associated with a gateway (that bridges networks n1 and n2), or the IP associated with a standard service endpoint.


a port on an ExternalEndpoint
