Does NGINX Controller allow the creation of upstream server groups/farms configuraton components?

Hello,

 

After looking at many videos and articles I didn't see an option to define the upstream server groups/farms that an Application Component should use and I am starting to think that the Nginx Controller GUI and API can't be used for managing the sever farm definitions. There is a new option called snippets or using the Nginx Instance Manager but this is strange to me that this seems to have not been added in the Nginx Controller GUI/API as this way the configuration will be validated or I am wrong about this?

Hey @Nikoolayy1  - I got a (very late) answer back for you:

Application Delivery Manager which is part of NGINX Management Suite is not GA'ed yet and thats the successor for NGINX Controller. Application Delivery Manager will be available in May 2023.
In NGINX Instance Manager you can directly edit the config and there is no concept of snippets. For more details on NGINX Instance Manager and how to configure https://docs.nginx.com/nginx-management-suite/
