[RHOCP 4] Specifying Hosts for Kiali is not working in Red Hat OpenShift Service Mesh

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Based on Openshift Kiali documentation using custom hostname for Kiali is possible, but when configured custom hostname for Kiali changes are not reflected and Kiali console and route is not accessible using new hostname
  • Can a custom hostname be used for Kiali in Openshift Service Mesh?
  • Changing / Modifying the default Kiali hostname in Openshift Service Mesh is not reflected after saving the configuration.
