Creating a Virtual Deployment Binding
A virtual deployment binding associates the pods in an application cluster with a virtual deployment in your mesh. The virtual deployment binding resource allows Service Mesh to discover pods backing the virtual deployment for service discovery.
A virtual deployment binding automatically upgrades pods that are running an older version of the proxy software. A virtual deployment binding is required only for Kubernetes-based workloads that are local to the cluster and aren't replicated back to the Service Mesh control-plane.
- Open the navigation menu and click Developer Services. Under Containers & Artifacts, click Service Mesh.
- Click Service Meshes.
- On the Service Mesh page, from the list of compartments on the left side, select a compartment.
- From the list of meshes, click the mesh that contains the virtual services for which you want to create the virtual deployment binding.
- On the details page of the mesh, click the name of the virtual service that contains the virtual deployment.
- On the details page of the virtual service, in the Virtual Deployments table,click the virtual deployment for which you want to create Kubernetes bindings.
- On the details page on the virtual deployment, click Create Kubernetes bindings.
In the Create Bindings for <name of the virtual deployment> dialog box, provide the following details:
- Kube Service Name: Name of the Kubernetes service.
- Kube Service Namespace: Name of the Kubernetes service namespace.
- Binding Namespace: (Optional) The Kubernetes namespace for your binding.
- Proxy Log Level: Select Error, Warn, Info, Debug, or Off.
- Match Kube Labels: Click Add Condition Pair to add a key and value for a label passed with your binding. These labels act as selectors for the Kubernetes service.
- Click Generate binding code to generate the YAML binding code.
- To exit the panel, click Close.
