Extensions follow common installation patterns that look something like this:
- 1.Deploy the extension within your infrastructure.
- 2.Extend the agent configuration so that the agent can communicate with the extension.
- This step can be skipped for extensions installed via our Helm charts as these set extension auto-discovery annotations.
- For extensions deployed outside of Kubernetes or with missing auto-discovery, see the respective documentation of the extension or the extension kits' respective documentation.
Most extensions will require extension-specific configuration. For example, the Kong extension needs to know how to reach and authenticate with Kong API gateways, while the AWS extensions require the configuration of IAM roles. As a result, no single set of instructions covers all extensions. However, extensions' documentation should describe the exact configuration and installation steps.
In the platform, you can manage your extensions via the extensions tab. You can see the extensions that are currently installed. Go to Settings -> Extensions to see the list of installed extensions.
