      Epic Goal

      • Add Gateway API via Istio Gateway implementation as GA in future release

      Problem: ** As an administrator, I would like to securely expose cluster resources to remote clients and services while providing a self-service experience to application developers. 

      GA:  A feature is implemented as GA so that developers can issue an update to the Tech Preview MVP and:

      • can no longer change APIs without following a deprecating or backwards compatibility process.
      • are required to fix bugs customers uncover
      • must support upgrading the cluster and your component
      • provide docs
      • provide education to CEE about the feature
      • must also follow Red Hat's support policy for GA

      Why is this important?

      • Reduces the burden on Red Hat developers to maintain IngressController and Route custom resources
      • Brings OpenShift ingress configuration more in line with standard Kubernetes APIs
      • Demonstrates Red Hat’s leadership in the Kubernetes community.

      Acceptance Criteria

      • Gateway API and Istio Gateway are in an acceptable standing for GA
      • Istio Gateway installation without sidecars enabled
      • Decision completed on whether a new operator is required, especially for upgrade and status reports
      • Decision completed on whether Ingress->Gateway (or Route->Gateway) translation is needed
      • Enhancement Proposals, Migration details, Tech Enablement, and other input for QA and Docs as needed
      • API server integration, Installation, CI, E2E tests, Upgrade details, Telemetry as needed
      • TBD

      Dependencies (internal and external)

      1. OSSM release schedule aligned with OpenShift's cadence, or workaround designed
