Expose Multiple Routes

Expose multiple routes for your application

Understanding Uffizzi Compose ingress

For each ephemeral environment, Uffizzi provisions one https load balancer to receive incoming traffic for your application. This "ingress" is defined in your Docker Compose file and requires a service and port definition, as shown in the example below.

    service: app
    port: 80

Exposing multiple routes

Uffizzi Compose allows only one service to act as your ingress, but your application may have multiple services you want to expose. For example, you may want to serve your main application at / and a console at /console. To do this, you can add a new nginx service to your configuration to map requests for specific ports to their target containers. We'll first add an nginx service to the Docker Compose file, then configure it as the ingress. Finally, we'll define the routes in an nginx.conf file.


Now we will create a new file in our repository /uffizzi/nginx/nginx.conf that defines how our paths will be exposed. By default the official nginx:latest base image we used in our Docker Compose file will include all /etc/nginx/conf.d/*.conf files.

Here we assume that app is listening for connections on 3001 and 3002 for the main applicaiton and console, respectively. If requests for port :3001 are received, we tell nginx to forward those requests to /. If requests for port 3002 are received, we tell nginx to forward those requests to /console.

http {
    server {
        listen 8081;
        location / {
            proxy_pass http://localhost:3001;
        location /console/ {
            proxy_pass http://localhost:3002;
