Minor Migrations

Traefik Mesh v1

Traefik Mesh v1.4

Maesh has been renamed to Traefik Mesh in an effort to rename all of our products and make them look closer. Through this renaming process, a couple of things changed which might be worth mentioning for a migration process. All areas that changed are mentioned below with the appropriate actions needed to do.

Everything called Maesh references to v1.3, while Traefik Mesh refers to v1.4.

Environment Variable Prefix

Prior to Traefik Mesh, environment variables were prefixed with MAESH_. Now they're prefixed with TRAEFIK_MESH_ and the MAESH_ prefix is deprecated. You need to decide on either using MAESH_ or TRAEFIK_MESH_ as mixing both will result in an error.

Configuration File Name

The default configuration file name is changed from maesh to traefik-mesh as well.

DNS Name

The well known internal DNS name, to opt in into the usage of Maesh was .maesh. Now, with the rebranding process this has been changed to traefik.mesh and thus, you now need to use the DNS name of servicename.servicenamespace.traefik.maesh to opt-in into the usage of Traefik Mesh. The old name .maesh, is deprecated and will be removed eventually.

Docker Image Name

As part of the process, the docker-image has been moved from containous/maesh to traefik/mesh. The old image will not be updated anymore and traefik/mesh starts with v1.4.0.

Binary

The new binary name is traefik-mesh, rather than maesh before. However, as Traefik Mesh is running inside k8s this change should not be critical as it's hidden by the docker-image name.

Annotations

As part of the rebranding process, the annotation prefix has changed. The annotation prefix maesh.containo.us/ has been deprecated in favour of mesh.traefik.io.

v1.1 to v1.2

Debug

The --debug CLI flag is deprecated and will be removed in a future major release. Instead, you should use the new --logLevel flag with debug as value.

SMI Mode

The --smi CLI flag is deprecated and will be removed in a future major release. Instead, you should use the new and backward compatible --acl flag.
