Deploying Kubeflow behind a proxy server

Instructions for installing and configuring Kubeflow behind a proxy server

Install Kubeflow behind a proxy server

This guide demonstrates how to install and configure Kubeflow behind a proxy server.

Note: These instructions assume that your Docker setup has a configured proxy service on each Kubernetes node.

  1. Create an alias for the proxy:
alias https='https_proxy=https://{SERVER}:{PORT}'

where {SERVER} is the IP address of your proxy server and {PORT} is the port number.

  1. Download the latest kfctl — the control pane for deploying and managing Kubeflow from the Kubeflow releases page. For example, run the command below to download the zipped kfctl TAR file for Kubeflow v1.1 and extract it to /usr/local/bin:
https wget extract to /usr/local/bin
  1. To install Kubeflow on an existing cluster, you need to download the the latest configuration YAML file. For example, for Kubeflow v1.1 it is:
https wget
  1. Download the KfDef manifest zipped TAR file. For example, for Kubeflow v1.1 you should run the following command:
https wget
  1. Open the YAML configuration (zipped) file and under - name: manifests change the old URI (such as to the location of the new one as follows:
- name: manifests
  uri: {ABSOLUTE_PATH}/v1.1-branch.tar.gz

where {ABSOLUTE_PATH} is your path to the the manifest.

  1. Run kfctl build to create configuration files before Kubeflow deployment:
kfctl build -V -f kfctl_k8s_istio.yaml
  1. Deploy Kubeflow:
kfctl apply -V -f kfctl_k8s_istio.yaml
