SSL without configuring DNS
Add a Secure SSL on Load Balancer without configuring DNS.
Opta enables the capability to add Self Signed Certificates over their Load Balancers without the need of configuring a Cloudfront, or a Domain Name.
This enables testing SSL (with insecure mode) and helps to test features which require SSL like GRPC.
WarningNote: Our Azure offering currently doesn’t support Self Signed Certificates.
How to expose a Secure Port
With Opta configurations, just set the
expose_self_signed_ssl flag as
true with the k8s-base (AWS/GCP) opta module.
The above configurations will help expose the Secure Port for accessing the Hello Opta service.
# Get the Load Balancer URL/IP based on the provider using the opta output command export load_balancer=<load_balancer_url / load_balancer_ip>
# Testing without SSL curl "http://$load_balancer/hello" <p>Hello from Opta.!</p>
# Testing with SSL curl "https://$load_balancer/hello" --insecure <p>Hello from Opta.!</p>
# Get the certificate details curl -vvI "https://$load_balancer" --insecure
You can use this feature of Opta to create your own Services which may require using an SSL Certificate.
