Prerequisites

Quick Start

The following quick start guide explains how to use the Tyk OSS Helm chart to configure the Tyk Gateway that includes:

  • Redis for key storage

At the end of this quickstart Tyk Gateway should be accessible through service gateway-svc-tyk-oss-tyk-gateway at port 8080.

1. Install Redis and Tyk

NAMESPACE=tyk-oss
APISecret=foo

helm repo add tyk-helm https://helm.tyk.io/public/helm/charts/
helm repo update

helm upgrade tyk-redis oci://registry-1.docker.io/bitnamicharts/redis -n $NAMESPACE --install

helm upgrade tyk-oss tyk-helm/tyk-oss -n $NAMESPACE --create-namespace \
  --install \
  --set global.secrets.APISecret="$APISecret" \
  --set global.redis.addrs="{tyk-redis-master.$NAMESPACE.svc.cluster.local:6379}" \
  --set global.redis.passSecret.name=tyk-redis \
  --set global.redis.passSecret.keyName=redis-password

2. Done!

Now Tyk Gateway should be accessible through service gateway-svc-tyk-oss-tyk-gateway at port 8080.

You are now ready to create an API.
