Instana on OpenShift Route Flexibility


My customer has a question about Instana route definitions on OCP. Basically, they have an OCP console address like According to the document;

- basedn URL should be like

- URL for ingress/agent should be like

- tenant URL should be like

If we configured the routes according to the documents everything works fine but the customer complained about SSL certificates that don’t cover the subdomain. They have a * wildcard certificate and it covers only one subdomain. They are emphasizing that that behavior is also against application deployment best practices of OpenShift. So, they need the flexibility to define any route for Instana.

Thank you.

    Hi Kurtulus,

    thanks for this idea, after our initial discussion I went back to the team. We see value in this idea, however the change is significant and therefore is not in scope in the short-term.

    We are happy to reevaluate this in 6 months this OpenShift improvement, should we see renewed interest.

    Please feel free to reach out to me directly, if you have any further questions.
