      Epic Goal

      • Add Gateway API via Istio Gateway implementation as Dev Preview in 4.12 

      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. Currently, this goal is achieved through the Route and IngressController custom resources. Although this approach overcame the limitations of the Kubernetes-native Ingress resource, it requires additional burden on Red Hat to maintain.

      Dev Preview: An optional product capability that is not officially supported by Red Hat, but is intended to provide a mechanism to explore early phase technology. Developer preview functionality is opt-in, and subject to removal at any time. Production use is not permitted.  Installation and use is not eligible for Red Hat production support.  Enabling a developer preview feature may render a cluster unsupportable dependent upon the scope of the feature. See documentation specific to that feature for specific guidance. 

      Why is this important?

      • Reduces the burden on Red Hat developers to maintain IngressController and Route custom resources.
      • Provides advanced routing capabilities for cluster ingress traffic.
      • Demonstrates Red Hat’s leadership in the Kubernetes community.
