Traefik & HTTP

Provide your dynamic configuration via an HTTP(S) endpoint and let Traefik do the rest!

Routing Configuration

The HTTP provider uses the same configuration as the File Provider in YAML or JSON format.

Provider Configuration

endpoint

Required

Defines the HTTP(S) endpoint to poll.

[providers.http]
  endpoint = "http://127.0.0.1:9000/api"
providers:
  http:
    endpoint:
      - "http://127.0.0.1:9000/api"
--providers.http.endpoint=http://127.0.0.1:9000/api

pollInterval

Optional, Default="5s"

Defines the polling interval.

[providers.http]
  pollInterval = "5s"
providers:
  http:
    pollInterval: "5s"
--providers.http.pollInterval=5s

pollTimeout

Optional, Default="5s"

Defines the polling timeout when connecting to the configured endpoint.

[providers.http]
  pollTimeout = "5s"
providers:
  http:
    pollTimeout: "5s"
--providers.http.pollTimeout=5s

tls

Optional

tls.ca

Certificate Authority used for the secure connection to the configured endpoint.

[providers.http.tls]
  ca = "path/to/ca.crt"
providers:
  http:
    tls:
      ca: path/to/ca.crt
--providers.http.tls.ca=path/to/ca.crt

tls.caOptional

The value of tls.caOptional defines which policy should be used for the secure connection with TLS Client Authentication to the configured endpoint.

If tls.ca is undefined, this option will be ignored, and no client certificate will be requested during the handshake. Any provided certificate will thus never be verified.

When this option is set to true, a client certificate is requested during the handshake but is not required. If a certificate is sent, it is required to be valid.

When this option is set to false, a client certificate is requested during the handshake, and at least one valid certificate should be sent by the client.

[providers.http.tls]
  caOptional = true
providers:
  http:
    tls:
      caOptional: true
--providers.http.tls.caOptional=true

tls.cert

Public certificate used for the secure connection to the configured endpoint.

[providers.http.tls]
  cert = "path/to/foo.cert"
  key = "path/to/foo.key"
providers:
  http:
    tls:
      cert: path/to/foo.cert
      key: path/to/foo.key
--providers.http.tls.cert=path/to/foo.cert
--providers.http.tls.key=path/to/foo.key

tls.key

Private certificate used for the secure connection to the configured endpoint.

[providers.http.tls]
  cert = "path/to/foo.cert"
  key = "path/to/foo.key"
providers:
  http:
    tls:
      cert: path/to/foo.cert
      key: path/to/foo.key
--providers.http.tls.cert=path/to/foo.cert
--providers.http.tls.key=path/to/foo.key

tls.insecureSkipVerify

If insecureSkipVerify is true, the TLS connection to the endpoint accepts any certificate presented by the server regardless of the hostnames it covers.

[providers.http.tls]
  insecureSkipVerify = true
providers:
  http:
    tls:
      insecureSkipVerify: true
--providers.http.tls.insecureSkipVerify=true
