If an external service is configured when you create an application, the system creates the external service besides running containers. The service is used to pre-assign a Server Load Balancer (SLB) instance for routing traffic to the containers in the cluster.


  1. Log on to the Container Service console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane under Container Service-Kubernetes, choose Discovery and Load Balancing > Services.
  3. Select the target cluster and namespace to view the deployed service.
    You can view the information such as the name, type, creation time, cluster IP address, and external endpoint of the service. The following figure shows the internal and external endpoints assigned to the service.
