How to expose "demo" ECK elastic/kibana services on Kubernetes? loadbalancer?

Hi,
I've following the quickstart demo (Quickstart | Elastic Cloud on Kubernetes [2.5] | Elastic) and have an ES I can port-forward to,but I want to be able to access my ES instance using e.g. a loadbalancer. Usually, I'd add a service to expose my deployment but that doesn't appear to work and feels like I'm working around the idea of using an operator. Please can someone tell me how to expose my new ES. Thanks,

	kubectl get services

I'm going with the following Ingress:

	apiVersion: networking.k8s.io/v1
	kind: Ingress   #https://kubernetes.io/docs/concepts/services-networking/ingress/
	metadata:
	  name: http-ingress
	  # annotations:
	  #   nginx.ingress.kubernetes.io/rewrite-target: /
	spec:
	  #ingressClassName: http-ingress
	  rules:
	  - http:
		  paths:
		  - path: /
			pathType: Prefix
			backend:
			  service:
				name: quickstart-es-http
				port:
				  number: 9200

I'm having a similar issue. But one step earlier, I can't get the port-forwarding to work. Maybe using the loadbalancer would help that too.

I did find the advice to add the following to the env variables on the container:
env:

  • name: "NETWORK_HOST"
    value: "site,lo"

But the quickstart ymls don't have container specifications, so I think we have to add that first.
