(Legacy) Get started with Konnect Cloud
This documentation is for the legacy Konnect environment at
konnect.konghq.com. For the
cloud.konghq.com environment, see the
current Konnect documentation.
New to Konnect Cloud? Get started with the basics through the web app:
Set up a runtime connection:
Set up a runtime and connect it to your account. Your first runtime
connection gives you a data plane for proxying traffic.
Start with a data plane proxy so that when your service configuration is
ready, your services are immediately connected, configured,
and available for testing.
Set up a runtime connection >
Create a service:
Catalog a new service using the Konnect ServiceHub.
Using ServiceHub, you can catalog, manage, and track every service in your
entire architecture. In this step, you create the first version of a service,
adding the first entry to your catalog.
Create a service >
Implement the new service:
Attach the new Konnect service to an upstream service
and define a route.
After you’ve configured a service and the runtime proxy is ready, testing
is the next step. Here you set up a route to a mocking API service,
then proxy traffic through the route.
Implement the service >
Get started with declarative config
You can manage entities in your Konnect Cloud org using configuration
files instead of the GUI or admin API commands. With decK, Kong’s declarative
configuration management tool, you can create, update,
compare, and synchronize configuration as part of an automation pipeline.
