App Mesh Controller

App Mesh controller Helm chart for Kubernetes

Note: If you wish to use App Mesh preview features, please refer to our preview version instructions.

Prerequisites

  • Kubernetes >= 1.13
  • EKS nodes should have the IAM permissions from the following policies: AWSAppMeshFullAccess, AWSCloudMapFullAccess

Installing the Chart

Note: AppMesh controller v1.0.0+ is backwards incompatible with old versions(e.g. v0.5.0). If you’re running an older version of App Mesh controller, please go to the upgrade section below before you proceed. If you are unsure, please run the appmesh-controller/upgrade/pre_upgrade_check.sh script to check if your cluster can be upgraded

Add the EKS repository to Helm:

helm repo add eks https://aws.github.io/eks-charts

Install the App Mesh CRDs:

kubectl apply -k github.com/aws/eks-charts/stable/appmesh-controller//crds?ref=master

Install the App Mesh CRD controller:

Regular Kubernetes distribution

Create namespace

kubectl create ns appmesh-system

Deploy appmesh-controller

helm upgrade -i appmesh-controller eks/appmesh-controller \
    --namespace appmesh-system

The configuration section lists the parameters that can be configured during installation.

Upgrade

Upgrade without preserving old App Mesh resources

# Keep old App Mesh controller running, it is responsible to cleanup App Mesh resources in AWS
# Delete all existing App Mesh custom resources (CRs)
kubectl delete virtualservices --all --all-namespaces
kubectl delete virtualnodes --all --all-namespaces
kubectl delete meshes --all --all-namespaces

# Delete all existing App Mesh CRDs
kubectl delete customresourcedefinition/virtualservices.appmesh.k8s.aws
kubectl delete customresourcedefinition/virtualnodes.appmesh.k8s.aws
kubectl delete customresourcedefinition/meshes.appmesh.k8s.aws
# Note: If a CRD stuck in deletion, it means there still exists some App Mesh custom resources, please check and delete them.

# Delete App Mesh controller
helm delete appmesh-controller -n appmesh-system

# Delete App Mesh injector
helm delete appmesh-inject -n appmesh-system

Run the appmesh-controller/upgrade/pre_upgrade_check.sh script and make sure it passes before you proceed

Now you can proceed with the installation steps described above

Upgrade preserving old App Mesh resources

# Save manifests of all existing App Mesh custom resources
kubectl get virtualservices --all-namespaces -o yaml > virtualservices.yaml
kubectl get virtualnodes --all-namespaces -o yaml > virtualnodes.yaml
kubectl get meshes --all-namespaces -o yaml > meshes.yaml

# Delete App Mesh controller, so it won’t clean up App Mesh resources in AWS while we deleting App Mesh CRs later.
helm delete appmesh-controller -n appmesh-system

# Delete App Mesh injector.
helm delete appmesh-inject -n appmesh-system

# Remove finalizers from all existing App Mesh CRs. Otherwise, you won’t be able to delete them

# To remove the finalizers, you could kubectl edit resource, and delete the finalizers attribute from the spec or run the following command to override finalizers. e.g for virtualnodes
# kubectl get virtualnodes --all-namespaces -o=jsonpath='{range .items[*]}{.metadata.namespace}{"\t"}{.metadata.name}{"\n"}{end}' | xargs -n2 sh -c 'kubectl patch virtualnode/$1 -n $0 -p '\''{"metadata":{"finalizers":null}}'\'' --type=merge'

# Alternatively, you could modify one resource at a time using
# kubectl get <RESOURCE_TYPE> <RESOURCE_NAME> -n <NAMESPACE> -o=json | jq '.metadata.finalizers = null' | kubectl apply -f -

# Delete all existing App Mesh CRs:
kubectl delete virtualservices --all --all-namespaces
kubectl delete virtualnodes --all --all-namespaces
kubectl delete meshes --all --all-namespaces

# Delete all existing App Mesh CRDs.
kubectl delete customresourcedefinition/virtualservices.appmesh.k8s.aws
kubectl delete customresourcedefinition/virtualnodes.appmesh.k8s.aws
kubectl delete customresourcedefinition/meshes.appmesh.k8s.aws
# Note: If CRDs are stuck in deletion, it means there still exists some App Mesh CRs, please check and delete them.

Run the appmesh-controller/upgrade/pre_upgrade_check.sh script and make sure it passes before you proceed

Translate the saved old YAML manifests using v1beta1 App Mesh CRD into v1beta2 App Mesh CRD format. Please refer to CRD types ( https://github.com/aws/aws-app-mesh-controller-for-k8s/tree/master/config/crd/bases) and Go types (https://github.com/aws/aws-app-mesh-controller-for-k8s/tree/master/apis/appmesh/v1beta2) for the CRD Documentation. Samples applications are in the repo https://github.com/aws/aws-app-mesh-examples for reference.

Note: Please specify the current appmesh resource names in the awsName field of the translated specs.

Install the appmesh-controller, label the namespace with values that mesh is selecting on and apply the translated manifest

Upgrade from prior script installation

If you’ve installed the App Mesh controllers with scripts, you can remove the controllers with the steps below.

# remove injector objects
kubectl delete ns appmesh-inject
kubectl delete ClusterRoleBinding aws-app-mesh-inject-binding
kubectl delete ClusterRole aws-app-mesh-inject-cr
kubectl delete  MutatingWebhookConfiguration aws-app-mesh-inject

# remove controller objects
kubectl delete ns appmesh-system
kubectl delete ClusterRoleBinding app-mesh-controller-binding
kubectl delete ClusterRole app-mesh-controller

Run the appmesh-controller/upgrade/pre_upgrade_check.sh script and make sure it passes before you proceed

For handling the existing custom resources and the CRDs please refer to either of the previous upgrade sections as relevant.

EKS on Fargate

export CLUSTER_NAME=<eks-cluster-name>
export AWS_REGION=<aws-region e.g. us-east-1>

Create namespace

kubectl create ns appmesh-system

Setup fargate-profile

eksctl create fargateprofile --cluster $CLUSTER_NAME --namespace appmesh-system
