meshctl experimental external-workload generate-bootstrap-bundle

meshctl experimental external-workload generate-bootstrap-bundle

Generate the bootstrap bundle that is required to onboard an external workload to your Gloo Mesh environment.

Synopsis

After you generate the bootstrap bundle, copy the bundle to your external workload to onboard it to your service mesh. For more information, see Onboard an external workload to the service mesh.

If you do not include the ‘–out’ or ‘-o’ flags, the bundle is generated as a compressed tar file in the tar.gz format. To use a different archive format, specify the output file with its extension type, which determines the archive and compression formats.

Supported compression formats:

Examples

# Generate a bootstrap bundle for the external workload with a specification
# defined in extworkload.yaml, that connects to cluster1, and uses a join token generated
# by the 'meshctl experimental external-workload generate-token' command as the attestation mechanism:
meshctl x external-workload gen-bundle \
  -f extworkload.yaml \
  --cluster cluster1 \
  --attestor token \
  -o /tmp/bootstrap.tar.gz

# Generate a bootstrap bundle for the external workload with a specification defined in extworkload.yaml,
# that connects to cluster1, and uses the AWS attestation mechanism:
meshctl x external-workload gen-bundle \
  -f extworkload.yaml \
  --cluster cluster1 \
  --attestor aws \
  -o /tmp/bootstrap.tar.gz
