This section describes the installation steps to create a Kong Mesh system, install Styra on Kong Mesh system, enforce and validate the ingress policy.

Create a Kong Mesh System

To demonstrate the enforcement of ingress and egress policies for a sample application, you can start by creating a new Styra Kong Mesh system. Systems are displayed on the left side of the navigation panel. To add a new System, click the + next to SYSTEMS on the left side of the navigation panel.

Fill in the following fields:

  • System type (required): Select Kong Mesh from the drop-down list.

  • System name (required): A human-friendly name so that you can distinguish between the different systems.

  • Description (optional): More details about this system.

  • Leave the Read-only switch ON to prevent users from modifying policies.

  • Leave the Launch Quick Start switch on. After this system is added, the Quick Start sidebar will guide you through configuring the system.

Now, you will see the instructions to install an example application onto your cluster.
