I am sharing a tutorial on how to setup a HTTP Basic Auth for Ingress when deploying to Kubernetes cluster to Google Cloud Platform (GCP) or Amazon AWS EKS
I am using excellent Gitlab’s Build and Deploy templates from here:
There is an easy way how to add HTTP Basis Auth to Ingress. You need to patch Ingress configuration after deployment.
See attached screenshot.
If your password contains dollar sign “$”, you have to escape it in the code, eg. user: foo, password: bar
- echo "foo:\$apr1\$eUw/512K\$An/ZO8P.FRWDInvvxcHwH." > auth
Pay attention to the Service name which you can find in your GCP / AWS.
