Gloo read-only UI
While the full Gloo UI remains an enterprise feature, open-source Gloo can be optionally installed with a read-only version of the UI as a demo.
Additionally, Gloo Enterprise customers can also tighten the permissions of their Gloo UI, which can be helpful to provide users insight into the state of Gloo without giving them admin-level permissions typically held by the Gloo UI backend service.
Once installed, access the read-only UI with
glooctl ui or
Install Gloo OSS Read-Only UI
Along with each release of Gloo Enterprise, we build and release a helm chart that deploys open-source Gloo alongside a read-only version of the UI. The helm chart is located at https://storage.googleapis.com/gloo-os-ui-helm.
To install this version with
glooctl, use the
--with-admin-console flag, for example:
glooctl install gateway --with-admin-console
With helm, add the following repo:
helm repo add gloo-os-with-ui https://storage.googleapis.com/gloo-os-ui-helm
and install it:
helm install gloo gloo-os-with-ui/gloo-os-with-ui --namespace gloo-system
helm install --name gloo gloo-os-with-ui/gloo-os-with-ui --namespace my-namespace --set crds.create=true
Install Gloo Enterprise Read-Only UI
To install full Gloo Enterprise (including extauth, ratelimiting, Envoy with enterprise-only Envoy filters) with the read-only UI, install Gloo with the following helm value override:
# This makes Gloo install the UI in read-only mode apiServer: enterprise: false
