Sentry in Kubernetes cluster


#1

We have deployed Sentry Helm chart in Kubernetes and have a couple of questions :

  1. After installing Sentry we need to login to the UI and do some manual configuration, is there a way we can automate this by editing a config file or using the API ?

  2. We have out of cluster nodes running in virtual machines that are in the same VPC with our kubernetes cluster, How do they connect to Sentry inside the cluster ? Do you setup a service type NodePort , internal Load Balancer , Ingress or something else ?

Thanks in advance.

Use a ConfigMap and you can lay out an entire config file.

These seems pretty specific to your situation, right? You can do whatever works for you.

One thing worth noting is that the helm chart you’re installing is not officially supported by us, and not maintained by us.

Not really, there are plenty of companies migrating their services to Kubernetes and the migration usually doesn’t happen all at once but you have services running in VMs in the same subnet outside of the Kubernetes cluster.

Right, but you’re asking an implementation detail of your setup. All of what you mentioned would work technically. Which you choose to use are depending on understanding the correct tradeoffs for your situation.
