NGINX Ingress Controller Configuration

If you use NGINX as an ingress controller and the datasource agent reports a HTTP 413 error message, it is likely that NGINX is limiting the datasource traffic. Increase the allowed maximum body size by adding "50m" to the Ingress.

For more information about NGINX body size limit, see

Configure a Second Ingress

When dealing with a large amount of traffic, it can be helpful to scale the inbound DAS gateway service. Generally, Styra recommends doing so by increasing the number of replicas in the gateway Deployment, as the corresponding Service will automatically distribute traffic between the available Pods. Some customers have, however, expressed a desire to have traffic related to OPA status and discovery be handled by a different inbound URL than all other DAS traffic. To make this possible, there are options in values.yaml that allow the user to deploy a secondary ingress.


The secondary ingress feature is only recommended when the customer requires that status and discovery traffic be handled by a secondary DAS URL. Please consult your Customer Architect when determining if this feature is necessary for your use case.

The following moficiations to values.yaml are required to enable a secondary ingress:

  1. Set gatewaySecondary.tls.enabled to true
  2. Uncomment featureFlags.custom.SECONDARY_INGRESS_URL
  3. Set the value of featureFlags.custom.SECONDARY_INGRESS_URL to the desired Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) or IP address

The resultant values.yaml configuration should resemble the following:

enabled: true

# add secondary ingress gateway to report status and discovery
# the k8s service can be configured via `gatewaySecondary`

In addition, the customer must make sure to configure the desired DNS record with their DNS registrar of choice.

Use a NodePort as Ingress

If you have issues in configuring a load balancer or Ingress, then you can change the gateway-public service to use a NodePort type within standard-external-http.yaml.

For example:

apiVersion: v1
kind: Service
name: gateway-public
app: gateway
- name: http
protocol: TCP
port: 80
targetPort: 8080
nodePort: 30036
type: NodePort

Be sure to set the ingress_url value in settings.yaml appropriately for your NodePort service configuration, for example, ingress_url: http://<worker-node>:<node-port>.
