Troubleshooting Kubernetes Ingress

Setting up Ingress is an easy process but when it doesn’t work it gets really painful. First, make sure you have Ingress Controller setup correctly. This is in addition to Ingress resource and should be automatically setup by your cloud provider. When I was trying to setup a Kubernetes cluster on IBM Cloud, I ran into a lot of issues. It seems due to my permissions level something went wrong during provisioning of Kubernetes and Ingress Controller was not setup correctly. I went through a lot of steps including recreating alb , ingress resources, etc. The final fix was to login to IBM Cloud as superuser to change Access Policies for the cluster. Once did that, everything just worked magically.

In case of IBM Cloud, here is an excellent list of steps to troubleshoot Ingress issues.
