Install Ingress APISIX on Tencent TKE

This document explains how to install Ingress APISIX on Tencent TKE.


  • Create a TKE Service on Tencent Cloud and make sure the API Server is accessible from your workspace.
  • Install Helm.
  • Download the kube config for your TKE Console.
  • Clone Apache APISIX Charts.
  • Make sure your target namespace exists, kubectl operations thorough this document will be executed in namespace ingress-apisix.

Install APISIX#

Apache APISIX as the proxy plane of apisix-ingress-controller, should be deployed in advance.

cd /path/to/apisix-helm-chart
helm repo add bitnami
helm repo add apisix
# Use `helm search repo apisix` to search charts about apisix
helm repo update
helm install apisix apisix/apisix \
--set gateway.type=LoadBalancer \
--set allow.ipList="{}" \
--set etcd.persistence.size=10Gi \
--namespace ingress-apisix \
kubectl get service --namespace ingress-apisix

Please be careful you must configure the etcd.persistence.size to multiples of 10Gi (it's a limitation on TKE), otherwise the PersistentVolumeClaim creation will fail.

Two Service resources were created, one is apisix-gateway, which processes the real traffic; another is apisix-admin, which acts as the control plane to process all the configuration changes.

The gateway service type is set to LoadBalancer (see TKE Service Management for more details), so that clients can access Apache APISIX through a load balancer. You can find the load balancer ip by running:

kubectl get service apisix-gateway --namespace ingress-apisix -o jsonpath='{.status.loadBalancer.ingress[].ip}'

Another thing should be concerned that the allow.ipList field should be customized according to the TKE Network Settings, so that the apisix-ingress-controller instances can access the APISIX instances (resources pushing).

Install apisix-ingress-controller#

You can also install apisix-ingress-controller by Helm Charts, it's recommended to install it in the same namespace with Apache APISIX.

cd /path/to/apisix-helm-chart
# install apisix-ingress-controller
helm install apisix-ingress-controller apisix/apisix-ingress-controller \
--set image.tag=dev \
--set config.apisix.baseURL=http://apisix-admin:9180/apisix/admin \
--set config.apisix.adminKey=edd1c9f034335f136f87ad84b625c8f1 \
--namespace ingress-apisix

Change the image.tag to the apisix-ingress-controller version that you desire. You have to wait for while until the corresponding pods are running.

Now open your TKE console, choosing your cluster and clicking the Workloads tag, you'll see all pods of Apache APISIX, etcd and apisix-ingress-controller are ready.

Try to create some resources to verify the running status. As a minimalist example, see proxy-the-httpbin-service to learn how to apply resources to drive the apisix-ingress-controller.
