External Redis and Postgresql

Hi All,

I have setup tyk-headless in K8’s with tyk-operator. I have also built an external Redis and DB configuring the helm charts to talk to these.

My tyk gateway pod shows as little amount of logs, my postgres has no table deployed and redis is just redis lol.

Whats the best was to check that the comms i working from tyk to these without going to deep into other tyk setup like deploying API’s etc…

I would have expected to see an error when I updated the database password incorrectly which is did not meaning I dont think its connected but I have no way of telling.

My issue was a result of a missing helm value of backend: "postgres"

Hello @Billett, if you’re running the Open source gateway, only Redis is required.
