Heptio Contour

Heptio Contour is an Ingress controller for Kubernetes that works by deploying the Envoy proxy as a reverse proxy and load balancer. Unlike other Ingress controllers, Contour supports dynamic configuration updates out of the box while maintaining a lightweight profile.


  • Kubernetes 1.10+
  • RBAC must be enabled.

Installing the Chart

To install the chart with the release name contour:

$ helm upgrade --install contour --namespace heptio-contour rimusz/contour

By default contour uses LoadBalancer to expose ports 80⁄443. You can change the service type via --set or in values.yaml file.

Tip: List all releases using helm list


The following table lists the configurable parameters of the Contour chart and their default values.

Parameter Description Default

annotationsprometheus.io/port Set Prometheus scrape port 8002

controller.statsd.enabled Enable Controller statsd false
controller.stats Set Controller stats {}

Specify each parameter using the --set key=value[,key=value] argument to helm install/upgrade.

Alternatively, a YAML file that specifies the values for the configurable parameters can be provided while installing the chart. For example:

$ helm upgrade --install contour --namespace heptio-contour rimusz/contour -f values.yaml .

Tip: You can use the default values.yaml

Uninstalling the Chart

To uninstall/delete the contour deployment:

$ helm delete --purge contour

The command removes all the Kubernetes components associated with the chart and deletes the release.
