kf proxy-route


kf proxy-route - Start a local reverse proxy to a Route.


kf proxy-route ROUTE [flags]


Proxy route creates a reverse HTTP proxy to the cluster's gateway on a local port opened on the operating system's loopback device.

The proxy rewrites all HTTP requests, changing the HTTP Host header to match the Route. If multiple Apps are mapped to the same route, the traffic sent over the proxy will follow their routing rules with regards to weight. If no Apps are mapped to the route, traffic sent through the proxy will return a HTTP 404 status code.

Proxy route DOES NOT establish a direct connection to any Kubernetes resource.

For proxy to work:

  • The cluster's gateway MUST be accessible from your local machine.
  • The Route MUST have a public URL
