Service Trait

The Service trait exposes the integration with a Service resource so that it can be accessed by other applications (or integrations) in the same namespace.

It’s enabled by default if the integration depends on a Camel component that can expose a HTTP endpoint.

This trait is available in the following profiles: Kubernetes, Knative, OpenShift.


Trait properties can be specified when running any integration with the CLI:

$ kamel run --trait service.[key]=[value] --trait service.[key2]=[value2] integration.groovy

The following configuration options are available:
