OpenShift health check not working with HTTPS scheme or mutual auth

Solution Verified - Updated -


Unable to successfully configure livenessProbe over HTTPS port. The setup uses mutual authentication. The documentation is not clear on how to configure this setup.

Sample livenessProbe snippet used in the deployment:

            path: /healthz
            port: 8443
            scheme: HTTPS
          initialDelaySeconds: 120
          timeoutSeconds: 5
          periodSeconds: 10
          successThreshold: 1
          failureThreshold: 3

Fails with the following message:

Liveness probe failed: Get EOF 

then the pods go into a crash loop.
