Generate a Proxy API Token in the Studio

In order for the Proxy to talk to the Fiberplane Studio successfully it needs to be successfully authorized. This step will generate a Proxy API Token that will be needed later.
  1. Go to your Fiberplane Settings page.
  1. Click + New Proxy to register a proxy with a name that identifies the cluster you will install it into (for example, "Production"). This will generate and display a Proxy API Token that the proxy will use to authenticate with the Fiberplane Studio.
  1. Copy the Proxy API Token generated in Step 2 for the next step.

Deploy the Proxy to your Kubernetes cluster

  1. Create the Kubernetes configuration file and change the Prometheus URL to point to the Prometheus instance(s) inside your cluster:
# configmap.yaml --- apiVersion: v1 kind: ConfigMap metadata: name: fiberplane-proxy data: data_sources.yaml: | # Change this file to point to your actual data source(s) # You can add data sources using this format: # Data Source Name: # type: prometheus # options: # url: your prometheus URL # More data source types are coming soon! # The data source name will appear in the Fiberplane Studio - name: prometheus-prod description: Prometheus (Production) providerType: prometheus config: # Replace the following line with your Prometheus URL url: http://prometheus
  1. Create the Kubernetes deployment file (replace <token> with the Proxy API Token created during the earlier step):
# deployment.yaml --- apiVersion: apps/v1 kind: Deployment metadata: name: fiberplane-proxy labels: app: fiberplane-proxy spec: replicas: 1 selector: matchLabels: app: fiberplane-proxy template: metadata: labels: app: fiberplane-proxy spec: containers: - name: fiberplane-proxy image: "fiberplane/proxy:v2" env: - name: TOKEN value: "<token>" # <-------------------------------- REPLACE ME - name: DATA_SOURCES_PATH value: /app/config/data_sources.yaml - name: RUST_LOG value: proxy=debug volumeMounts: - name: data-sources mountPath: /app/config/data_sources.yaml subPath: data_sources.yaml volumes: - name: data-sources configMap: # Provide the name of the ConfigMap containing the files you want # to add to the container name: fiberplane-proxy items: - key: data_sources.yaml path: data_sources.yaml
  1. Apply the changes to your Kubernetes cluster by running the following commands:
kubectl apply -f configmap.yml kubectl apply -f deployment.yml
Once you complete your Proxy setup, your data sources linked in the Proxy configuration should be recognized by the Studio - you can verify this again by going to the Settings > Data Sources screen.👇
