Traefik Enterprise Provider

The default Traefik Proxy file provider can be difficult to operate in a distributed environment. For this reason, Traefik Enterprise has a built-in dynamic configuration provider that replaces the file provider. This provider uses the same file formats as the file provider for ease of use. For more information on the file format, please refer to the reference.

Applying a Traefik Enterprise Provider Configuration

Traefik Enterprise provider configuration can be applied to a cluster using the apply command in teectl:

teectl apply --file=config.toml

The apply command supports both TOML and YAML dynamic configuration formats, in addition to Go Templating.

More information about the apply command can be found in the teectl reference.

Referencing resources across providers

The Traefik Enterprise provider leverages the Traefik Proxy provider namespacing system. All resources defined using the Traefik Enterprise provider are available from other providers under the traefikee namespace.

For example, a middleware called google-auth defined in the TraefiKEE provider is available as google-auth@traefikee from any other provider.

  middlewares:
    google-auth:
      plugin:
        oidcAuth:

          session:

# Defines a google-auth middleware

    source = "google"
    redirectURL = "/callback"
