We are in the process of evaluating Tyk for API gateway use cases. We are using Tyk community edition for our evaluation. From the documentation, we understand that APIs are not exposed outside of the pod, the only way to interact with the Gateway REST API is to use the kubectl port-forward feature.
We are just wondering if we can interact with the Gateway REST APIs without using kubectl port-forwarding. We would like to know if helm charts for tyk can be customized to automatically configure kubernetes port forwarding post installation of tyk CE. Has any one given it a try and succeeded in doing so?
The documentation on community edition does not provide enough information. We would appreciate, if some one can provide us insights on how to do port forwarding in a more sophisticated way.
