Configuring a DNS Provider
In order to be able to interact with supported DNS providers, Kuadrant needs a credential that it can use. This credential is leveraged by the multi-cluster gateway controller in order to create and manage DNS records within zones used by the listeners defined in your gateways.
Kuadrant Supports the following DNS providers currently
- AWS Route 53 (AWS)
- Google Cloud DNS (GCP)
AWS Route 53 Provider
Kuadrant expects a

We have tested using the available policy
AmazonRoute53FullAccess however it should also be possible to restrict the credential down to a particular zone. More info can be found in the AWS docs:
