Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: Because of the changes between 3.x and 4.x there were some features that were not in sync. Consequence: The 4.1 Cluster Console does not allow the creation of Routes with multiple service endpoints in the UI, which was one of the features of the 3.x dev UI. In 4.x this feature is available by editing the yaml of a route, however, it is missing in the GUI Route form. Fix: Add the ability in the GUI form to add/remove up to 3 alternate service endpoints. Result: The configuration of multiple service endpoints on a route is now in sync with the 3.11 version of openshift via both yaml and forms.

Description Ian Lawson 2019-06-28 09:00:47 UTC
Description of problem:

Creation of a new Route within a namespace that has multiple Services does not provide a mechanism for splitting the traffic across multiple Service endpoints with a weighting as was provided graphically in the 3.x console. Whilst this still can be achieved by handcrafting YAML it was a feature that customers liked, especially for Canary deployments of applications

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

OCP4.1, K8S v1.13.4+838b4fa

How reproducible:

Always, option is missing from the Create Route dialog

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add two applications to a namespace (i.e. nodetest1, nodetest2)
2. Ensure that the nodetest1 and nodetest2 Service exist by going to Networking/Services on the OCP4.1 management console
3. Select Networking/Routes, Create Route

Actual results:

UI components allow for the creation of a Route with a single Service endpoint and no option to add an additional one with a network weighting for splitting traffic

Expected results:

OCP3.11 provides this graphical functionality. In the absence of the 4.2 Pipeline UI which I assume won't bring this back the 4.1 UI does not - you can handcraft YAML but that is not intuitive for existing customers of 3.x that use this feature

Checked on OCP 4.3 with above payload version, now creating route with multiple services from form is available on console.
The bug is fixed.
