Ngnix ingress controller support

Sajan S S 81 Reputation points

If we are using Ngnix ingress controller for AKS ingress do we need to take additional support from Ngnix ?.

What I am trying to know here is , if any bug or security vulnerabilities are reported on current version Ngnix can we report to Microsoft or is supported by community ?

    Nginx is not a service that comes as part of the AKS platform, it is an application you have chosen to run in the cluster. Given this, Microsoft will not provide direct support for Nginx issues, you either need to rely on the open-source community support, or pay for a support contract with Nginx.

    If you want a Microsoft supported Ingress controller you can look at using App Gateway Integration with AKS.

    Hi @SajanSS-1385

    Thank you for asking question!

    Security issues and patching
    If a security flaw is found in one or more of the managed components of AKS, the AKS team will patch all affected clusters to mitigate the issue. Alternatively, the team will give users upgrade guidance.

    For agent nodes affected by a security flaw, Microsoft will notify you with details on the impact and the steps to fix or mitigate the security issue (normally a node image upgrade or a cluster patch upgrade).

    Nginx ingress controller is an open-source solution. So Therefore we don't need to get support from Nginx. If your using Nginx Plus with App protects (Commercial) we can use Nginx support. For open-source, we need to rely on the community development for the bugs

    If you want a closed AKS it supports private clusters too
