Service Mesh Rules is a construct that helps define traffic flows and configure security controls. Two types of rules are supported:

  • Cluster-wide service mesh rules
  • Namespace-wide service mesh rules

Service Mesh rules in a CRD YAML definition can either be uploaded directly to the console or pulled from a Git Repository.

There are multiple flavors of rules that can be configured. Refer to Istio documentation for more details. A few type of rules useful to start with are:

  1. Routing Rules
  2. Destination Rules
  3. Gateway Rules
