Applications are usually exposed at
<base_domain> come from the installation config file.
<route_name> is the host field of the route, if specified, or the route name. For example,
hello-openshift is the name of the route and the route is in the default namespace. You might want clients to access the applications without the need to distribute the cluster-managed CA certificates to the clients. The administrator must set a custom default certificate when serving application content.
The Ingress Operator generates a default certificate for an Ingress Controller to serve as a placeholder until you configure a custom default certificate. Do not use operator-generated default certificates in production clusters.
The user-provided certificates must be provided in a
Secret resource in the
openshift-ingress namespace. Update the
IngressController CR in the
openshift-ingress-operator namespace to enable the use of the user-provided certificate. For more information on this process, see Setting a custom default certificate.
Update the secret containing the user-managed certificate as needed.
