ir2proxy is a tool to convert Contour's IngressRoute resources to HTTPProxy resources.

Features

ir2proxy can translate an IngressRoute object to an HTTPProxy object. The full featureset of IngressRoute should be translated correctly. If not, please log an issue, specifying what didn't work and supplying the sanitized IngressRoute YAML.

Usage

ir2proxy is intended for taking a yaml file containing one or more valid IngressRoute objects, and then outputting translated HTTPProxy objects to stdout.

Logging is done to stderr.

To use the tool, just run it with a filename as input.

$ ir2proxy basic.ingressroute.yaml
---
apiVersion: projectcontour.io/v1
kind: HTTPProxy
metadata:
  name: basic
  namespace: default
spec:
  routes:
  - conditions:
    - prefix: /
    services:
    - name: s1
      port: 80
  virtualhost:
    fqdn: foo-basic.bar.com
status: {}

Its intended mode of operation is in a one-file-at-a-time manner, so it's easier to use it in a Unix pipe.

Installation

Homebrew

Add the ir2proxy tap (located at homebrew-ir2proxy):

brew tap projectcontour/ir2proxy

Then install ir2proxy:

brew install ir2proxy

To upgrade, use

brew upgrade ir2proxy

Non-homebrew

Go to the releases page and download the latest version.

Possible issues with conversion and what to do about them

Prefix behavior in IngressRoute vs HTTPProxy

In IngressRoute, delegation was a route-level construct, that required that the delegated IngressRoutes have the full prefix, including the delegation prefix. So a nonroot Ingressroute that wanted to accept traffic for /foo/bar would have a match entry of /foo/bar.

For HTTPProxy, inclusion is a top-level construct, and the included HTTPProxy does not need to have the full prefix, and can be included at multiple paths if required. So a nonroot HTTPProxy that wanted to accept traffic for /foo/bar would have a prefix condition of /bar, and be included using a prefix condition of /foo.

ir2proxy tries to guess what the prefix should be, and puts its guess into generated nonroot HTTPProxy objects. It will warn you on stderr and in the generated file what its guess means if it's not sure. (For some specific cases, the tool can be sure what you mean.)

Load Balancing Strategy

In IngressRoute, setting the load balancing strategy was originally designed as a route-level default that could be overwritten by a service-level setting. However, only the service-level setting was implemented.

HTTPProxy currently only has the route-level setting implemented, so ir2proxy will take the first setting of strategy in IngressRoute to be the correct setting for HTTPProxy.

A warning will be output to stderr and as a comment in the file.

Healthchecks

In IngressRoute, healthchecks were only configurable at a service level, not defaulted at a route level.

In HTTPProxy, healthchecks are only configurable at a route level. Accordingly, ir2proxy will take the healthcheck found and record it at the HTTPProxy Route level. This means that for multiple healthchecks, the last will take precedence.

A warning will be output to stderr and as a comment in the file.
