Stand-alone mode

Turning on the APISIX node in Stand-alone mode will no longer use the default etcd as the configuration center.

This method is more suitable for two types of users:

  1. kubernetes(k8s):Declarative API that dynamically updates the routing rules with a full yaml configuration.
  2. Different configuration centers: There are many implementations of the configuration center, such as Consul, etc., using the full yaml file for intermediate conversion.

The routing rules in the conf/apisix.yaml file are loaded into memory immediately after the APISIX node service starts. And every time interval (default 1 second), will try to detect whether the file content is updated, if there is an update, reload the rule.

Note: When reloading and updating routing rules, they are all hot memory updates, and there will be no replacement of working processes, it is a hot update.

Since the current Admin API is based on the etcd configuration center solution, enable Admin API is not allowed when the Stand-alone mode is enabled.

The Stand-alone mode can only be enabled when set the role of APISIX as data plane. We can set deployment.role to data_plane and deployment.role_data_plane.config_provider to yaml.

Refer to the example below:

deployment:
role: data_plane
role_data_plane:
config_provider: yaml

How to configure rules#

All of the rules are stored in one file which named conf/apisix.yaml, the APISIX will check if this file has any changed every second. If the file changed and we found #END at the end of the file, APISIX will load the rules in this file and update to memory of APISIX.

Here is a mini example:

routes:
-
uri: /hello
upstream:
nodes:
"127.0.0.1:1980": 1
type: roundrobin
#END

NOTE: APISIX will not load the rules into memory from file conf/apisix.yaml if there is no #END at the end.

How to configure Router#

Single Router:

routes:
-
uri: /hello
upstream:
nodes:
"127.0.0.1:1980": 1
type: roundrobin
#END

Multiple Router:

routes:
-
uri: /hello
upstream:
nodes:
"127.0.0.1:1980": 1
type: roundrobin
-
uri: /hello2
upstream:
nodes:
"127.0.0.1:1981": 1
type: roundrobin
#END

How to configure Router + Service#

-
uri: /hello
service_id: 1
services:
-
id: 1
upstream:
nodes:
"127.0.0.1:1980": 1
type: roundrobin
#END

How to configure Router + Upstream#

routes:
-
uri: /hello
upstream_id: 1
upstreams:
-
id: 1
nodes:
"127.0.0.1:1980": 1
type: roundrobin
#END

How to configure Router + Service + Upstream#
