Deploying ALB Ingress Controller


We will use Helm to install the ALB Ingress Controller.

Add helm incubator repository

helm repo add incubator
# Get the VPC ID
export VPC_ID=$(aws eks describe-cluster --name eksworkshop-eksctl --query "cluster.resourcesVpcConfig.vpcId" --output text)

helm --namespace 2048-game install 2048-game \
  incubator/aws-alb-ingress-controller \
  --set image.tag=${ALB_INGRESS_VERSION} \
  --set awsRegion=${AWS_REGION} \
  --set awsVpcID=${VPC_ID} \
  --set rbac.create=false \
  --set rbac.serviceAccountName=alb-ingress-controller \
  --set clusterName=EKS-fargate

Execute the following command to watch the progress by looking at the deployment status:

kubectl -n 2048-game rollout status deployment/2048-game-aws-alb-ingress-controller
